About the Property

3 bedroom, one bath, sleeps 6-8 plus bonus youth room

Our home is on a quiet side street, one block off Main Street. Your vacation begins the moment you pull your car into the driveway, no need to search for parking. Acadia National Park and all that Bar Harbor has to offer are within walking distance. The well equipped kitchen which opens to a large backyard, spacious dining room, and living room, equipped with 42 in flat screen T.V.,VCR/DVD, stereo, card and board games are on the first floor. Upstairs has 3 bedrooms, 2 with queen beds, one with 2 twin beds, bathroom, plus a youth room with a pack and play. In the backyard relax as you watch the children play, or enjoy a game of badminton, fire up the gas grill for a cookout and enjoy your lobster dinner in the fresh salt air. After dinner walk two block to listen to a concert in the Village Green or browse the many shops and boutiques, another two blocks to watch the sunset over the ocean before coming home to tuck in to rest up for another day of relaxation and adventure.


Acadia Escape remodeled in 2008 : We have done lots of updates to our recently purchased home. All windows and doors have been replaced with energy efficient low e glass. An energy efficient furnace was also installed this year to help with green house gases and for your comfort. The electrical system has also been completely updated to all safety codes including smoke detectors in every room for your safety. In the bathroom the tub/shower enclosure has been newly tiled. The hardwood floors in the living area and the California pine floors on the entire second floor have all been sanded and refinished. As have all the original wood doors.

2012 we have upgraded, we have put a 42 inch HDTV and new pull out couch in the living area, also new carpet in dining room and new flooring in the bathroom.

Tennis lessons available: August Lozano is a USPTA certified tennis professional. I have been a teaching pro at the Ellsworth Tennis Center for 10 years. In 2008 I was ranked #1 in the State of Maine in the 45 and over. In 2006 I was ranked # 1 in the 35's and the 45's. I would be happy to hit or give a lesson during your stay.
