About Suzanne Jones
My ex husband and I bought this house in 1992 and renovated the home in 2003. This home is very close to my heart because both of my children (now aged 15 and 20) were born in the house. My oldest son was born in the master bedroom on October 2nd 1996, and my younger son was born in the bedroom above the kitchen on October 1st 2001 (we had a birthing tub in there!) The maple tree in the back yard (on the right of the garden) was planted just a few days after my oldest was born. We moved to Boston in 2003 and I founded a non-profit organization called yogaHOPE and developed a mind body program for female survivors of trauma. I love my work because it takes me all over the world, from the U.S., to Haiti, Kenya and Iran. I try to visit this home at least once a year and am happy to share it with others.

Why Suzanne Jones chose Bar Harbor
This property is beautifully renovated yet still quirky. Please read the description very carefully so that you are informed of all the little ins and outs of this house. Some things that I think are really special about this house are the downstairs shower (the stones on the wall and that make up the outdoor shower are all from our back yard), the HUGE window in the bedroom (bring eye masks if you don't like early morning light) and the terrace and gardens (lots of blueberries on the bushes if you come in late July/August). The location of the house is great, as Bar Harbor is extremely crowded in the summer season and after a busy day of hiking and activities it feels great to come back to someplace quiet and beautiful. The entrance to the park is just a couple of miles away as well, allowing you to enter the park without driving through Bar Harbor. While bigger groups may have to get creative about sleeping arrangements, the house never feels crowded because there are so many different sitting areas.
What makes this Cottage unique
For me, the absolute best thing about this house is the kitchen. I put a lot of care and love into the design and spend all my time in the kitchen whenever I'm at the house.

Beautiful home, more than enough space for 5, great location outside of town
Loved this house! So much character and plenty of room for 5 adults. Everything we needed was there. Would definitely stay again when visiting Bar Harbor.
A convenient location to Bar Harbor & Acadia. Very charming & cozy.
The only improvement would be better mattresses....
Wonderful home in a beautiful setting. Amenities were first rate.
Lovely home. Can't wait to return
It was great
Beautiful Property. Great setting and location!
We had a great time! The property is terrific and we would return in a heartbeat. We enjoyed the herb garden and blueberries and watching the deer and fox pass through. The only things we could suggest would be some new bedding and upgraded cookware. We definitely recommend this property!
Bar Harbor Maine is located on Mount Desert Island which is the home to Acadia National Park. This is one of the most beautiful and popular spots in the whole country.
