About the Property
Fully equipped 3 Bedrooms, 2 Full Baths, Sleeps 6, Washer & Dryer
I will never forget our first guest saying, "This house is beautiful! I mean really beautiful!" Like so many others, the first thing that captured my attention was how bright, sunny and warm the feeling is. In part, I think it is due to the southern exposure on the side of the house with the kitchen, deck and sliding glass doors. When you add the vaulted ceiling and large flowing design, the entire area fills with sunlight. There is an overwhelming sensation that comes with the peace of being in fresh, open spaces.
By using the back entrance, you will enter through the kitchen. The cabinets are beautifully constructed of real maple, the wood flooring in the dining room and hall were constructed to match.
When you walk into the living room or any of the bedrooms, you will find that they still look like they did at the time the house was purchased. Even the carpeting shows very little, if any, wear. (The quality of this home far in exceeds my own. It is truly beautiful in both design and construction.)
Sitting on the deck you can look at a field of meadow grass and wild flowers. Graced with tranquility, the couple that just departed at the end of June, 2015 told us how much they enjoyed watching the deer in the field while having their coffee every morning. At night, guests enjoy gazing at the Milky Way while listening to the soothing and unmistakable call of owls.
Located amidst Acadia National Park properties, there are endless recreational possibilities. Right from the house, a 15 minute walk puts you on some of the park's roads and trails, giving you access to nearby mountains and three different ponds. An ocean boat launch is only 2 miles away. Bass Harbor Lighthouse, (one of the most photographed in Maine), seafood restaurants, Bar Harbor, and the Swan's Island ferry are just a short drive. After a full day of activity, you can return for a relaxing whirlpool bath, enjoy a movie, or have a glass of wine on the deck. Fully equipped with everything you need to relax in comfort. It is a common sight to see deer, fox, and other wildlife right from the living room window or back deck while enjoying your morning coffee.
Our Guestbook: We are grateful for our guests that take the time and trouble to make an entry in our guest book both at the house and on line. We have completely filled one guest book and leave it at the house for you to read. In it, you will find many descriptions of what people enjoyed most while being our guests. You can use it to get helpful hints on everything from which restaurants were the best to which hikes had the most beautiful views and which ones they found difficult.

Come share a piece of Mount Desert Island. Acadia National Park is always one of the most visited parks in the country. The views are nothing short of spectacular. You will find tall pines seemingly growing out of rocks, mountains with granite cliffs, hiking trails, ponds, lakes and salt-water beaches, and ocean waves crashing in fantastic displays on our rock-bound coast. Lighthouses? You can see as many as five from Cadillac Mountain.
Take in historic Bar Harbor. You can eat a pizza while watching a movie or listen to live music in the village square. There are bike rentals, sightseeing boats, whale-watching cruises, kayaking and rock climbing excursions just to mention a few of the adventures awaiting you. Lobster pounds and seafood restaurants are everywhere just in case you are interested. Not interested? How about gliding in a plane with no engine or seeing a lumberjack show with Tina from 'Survivor', or looking through the old Chicken Barn full of antiques or....
Other Activities: golf, hiking, rock climbing, kayaking, canoing, boat rentals, berry picking
About the owner: The house was purchased brand new by my mother-in-law. It was hoped to be an investment piece to give her financial security. Then the market crashed and selling it would have been at a loss so Larry and I try to rent it by the week to make sure her future is secure. In addition, Larry built an efficiency apartment in the walk out basement. For the last five years it has been rented to a NE Harbor police officer. He has a wonderful personality and offers an extra layer of protection to the house. We have always used the back entrance to the house. There are approximately 13 steps from the parking area to the deck. We believe using the back door is the biggest reason the house has stayed in such pristine. I want to be sure that the steps won't be a problem for anyone, or I would feel terrible! Having any kind of negative impact on someone's vacation would be enough to literally make me cry. The steps would definitely be a problem for me if I were on vacation! I just can't seem to teach my wheelchair how to master that stair trick. On the flip side, we are quite sure the steps keep me from popping wheelies on the maple flooring in the hall, however.
