About Bonnie J. Ray

I fell in love with the magical island of Mount Desert in 1982. I was fortunate to be able to move here and start a business and build two lovely homes. I love to travel as well and always rent a house where ever my travels bring me. I appreciate the comforts of home when I am away, so I strive to make your comforts a priority as well,

Bonnie J. Ray purchased this house in 2006

Why Bonnie J. Ray chose Bar Harbor

Perfect for families. The first floor has a family room with specious living room, wetbar, and bath. Continue on to the second floor and enjoy living area, dining area, kitchen, and bath, and rest peaceful on the third floor that contains two more bedrooms.

What makes this house unique

There is nothing more magical then Acadia National Park and Mount Desert Island. My homes are located on a very quiet road, with ocean view towards the North, and beautiful woods to the South. Wild blueberries grow all summer in the woods, and if you pay attention who will always spot a deer or two. We are close to the downtown area of Bar Harbor (4 miles), and exactly 1-1/2 mile to the entrance to Acadia National Park.

Very nice vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and well maintained home. With 3 separate bedroom areas, it was well suited for our 6 guests. Very convenient to Bar Harbor and Acadia NP. It was obvious that the owner takes great care to provide a nice rental property.

Amazing home, PERFECT location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a week here at Cliffside in July, and couldn't have asked for anything more! The house itself was in a scenic setting, very clean and offered up everything that our entire family needed! The location also proved to be more than perfect, far enough outside of Bar Harbor to be secluded and away from the crowds, but close enough that we could drive there within 10 minutes. One of the entrances to Acadia was just a few minutes away as well, so getting there for all of our day trips was a breeze. Our kids LOVED hiking in the woods behind the house and picking all of the wild blueberries they wanted - so cool!! All in all, we would all definitely agree that we would stay at this beautiful home again! Thank you, Bonnie!

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a beautiful, spacious home just minutes from Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, you have found it. Nestled among the towering trees, the spacious deck with its fire pit, barbecue grill, and peekaboo glimpses of the water makes it difficult to leave. In fact, you'll find yourself looking forward to coming "home" after a day of exploring the island. We picked wild blueberries behind the house and made our way down to the shore during low tide. And, if you plan to prepare meals at home, this kitchen lacks nothing. The 3rd floor deck off the master bedroom provides another inviting space for morning coffee with its glimpses of the waters below. For travelers staying in the fall and winter months, I'm sure the views are amazing! We stayed in the very hot month of July and were thankful for the air conditioning in the master bedroom. Thank you, Bonnie, for sharing your treasure with us. Our family sure hopes to return one day!
