Car: Recommended

Acadia National Park has some of the most beautiful hikes and view on the east coast. The Park offers nature walks, naturalist cruises and lectures. Golf on 3 island courses, sailing, kayaking, biking, tennis, fishing, concerts, plays, art galleries, church fairs, interesting shops- all these and more are nearby for your enjoyment. We are located on the western side of MDI; the Quietside. Whale watching from Bar Harbor just 20 minutes away. The stars at Cadillac is a must see. Fine dining is in all of our villages, SW Harbor, Bar Harbor, Northeast Harbor and Tremont. Shopping at T Shirt Shops and designer brands are available. The Gilley Museum of bird carving is located in SW Harbor. The Abbe is in Bar Harbor and there are several others to explore. Art fairs and musical groups are always available for your enjoyment. I, the owner, am a native of this lovely island and have visited a few different places, but have found none any more beautiful than Mount Desert Island. We have other cottages for rent so if this calendar is full contact us for availability at our other nearby locations, Bass Harbor, Hodgdon Pond and SW Harbor.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1990

About: We are natives of MDI with 3 businesses that we operate. In addition to our eight rental properties, Steve is a master electrician with 6 or more employees and we operate a real estate firm with 6 agents. Our 2 children are grown and 4 grand children are almost grown. We enjoy boating the Maine coast, kayaking the local waters and walking the trails here on MDI. Our home away from home is Sarasota FL where we purchased a rental property at the Palm Bay Club on Siesta Key. For a warm retreat in the cold of winter reserve a vacation at our Fl condo.

Why Bernard, Tremont, ME, USA:
Our location on the water on the quiet side of MDI is only 25 minutes from the hustle and bustle of down town Bar Harbor on a day when the cruise ships are in. Entrances to the park are within 2 miles and Thurston's for lobster and Back Beach are within 1/2 a mile. The village of SW Harbor is just 3.6 miles from Bernard Rd where you'll find shops, banks, art shows on the green and restaurants.
