About the property

- 3 BR, 1 BA, Sleeps 6-7

Charming, centrally located in the heart of Bar Harbor, main gate way to Acadia National Park, & all points on Mt. Desert Island.

This house is located one block from Acadia National Park's Bar Island. Bar Island sits at the end of Bridge Street in the Heart of Bar Harbor. At low tide you can walk all the way across to Bar Island, stopping to explore the many tidal pools. There is a short hike to the top where you can look back and take in the view of Bar Harbor. After your stroll across to Bar Island you can come back and relax on the large open porch. Even better is a well deserved nap on the full sized glider.

A restful week or one filled with high energy adventure -- The choice is yours!

Great house and wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

Loved how easily we could walk downtown and see the all the sites! When we enter this home we were greeted with a bottle of wine and muffins, such a great welcome gift. The house was cozy. We enjoyed playing some of

board games at the end of evening. Kitchen

had pantry items, tea and some coffee. This house felt like a home away from home. Porch was great, we sat on the glider at night with a

drink . I hope we can come back to this home again. Thanks Michael for a great getaway home.

Very Convenient!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in the "Summer House". The location is great for walking through Bar Harbor and you can get to the town pier in 5 minutes. Two blocks away you can walk (at low tide) across the sand bar to Bar Harbor Island. Our daughters enjoyed find mussels, snails, and shells at low tide.

The owner is excellent to work with too!

We would definitely recommend the "Summer House" to anyone visiting Bar Harbor.
