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 Mount Desert Island

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.

Cliffside was a great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family spent a week at Cliffside by the Sea near Bar Harbor and had a great time.

Cliffside is just 2 1/2 miles from the Acadia National Park Hulls Cove visitors center and 5 miles from the center of Bar Harbor and all the fine restaurants. This location was also great for going into Ellsworth and for the day we went to Quoddy Head State Park. From Cliffside, we discovered a trail at the back of the house that allowed us to cut through the Bar Harbor Campground to the Udder Heaven Ice Cream Retreat - 1/2 mile walk. Ice cream was great!.

We also had a great meal next door to Udder Heaven at Mainely Meats. Should we make it back to Bar Harbor, we would stay at Cliffside again.

Fantastic Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Bar Harbor the last week of June and we couldn't possibly have picked a better place to stay! Our group was my husband and I, my brother and sister-in-law, my father, and my 14 year old niece. The space couldn't have been more perfect for all of us. Everything we could have needed was there at the ready, and the location was convenient to everything that we wanted to do. The view was amazing, and we enjoyed the beautiful wrap around deck. We would most certainly choose this spot again!

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Bar Harbor and staying in this home added to the great time we had. The home was very comfortable, spacious and open...provided everything we needed. It was in a quiet and very nice neighborhood. This home is within a 10 minute drive to downtown Bar Harbor and only a few minutes drive to Acadia National Park. We had the best meal at the Chart Room which is on the way to Bar Harbor. Thanks Bonnie for the great accommodations and suggestions of places to eat and places to visit....I will definitely recommend your place to family and friends.

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!
