About the owner: On a one-week vacation to Bar Harbor in 1976, I fell in love with the Town and National Park. I signed a lease on a small shop--and never returned to Boston. A frequent fantasy of visitors; I was lucky enuf to make it work. For 25 years I owned Boston Baked Beads, The Dancing Deer &The Blue Heron Shop. I've served the Town on the Appeals Board & the restoration of the historic Hulls Cove Schoolhouse. I grew up living sweetly in small towns, but none was as beautiful as this one.
Why the Owner Chose Bar Harbor, ME, USA:
Acadia View offers a perfect location. Tucked into a low-traffic deadend behind a hill away from the bustle of the downtown, it still remains within walking or shuttle distance of all the fine shops and restaurants. And if you head the other direction by bike, auto, or free shuttle--it is only 1/2 mile into one of the most beautiful of our National Parks. You can't get much closer! I didn't build Acadia View, but I did recognize it as a gem--and bought it.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Acadia View offers in abundance the features that add up to a great vacation: a strategic location, a quiet neighborhood, large lawn with gas grill, and clean comfy quarters. Not fancy nor fragile, just a sensible setting from which you can easily explore the Town, the Park and the Island. And a neighborly place to return to for cooking, sunning, catching up by WiFi or TV--and quiet sleeping.
