About the Property

1st floor unit of a duplex, 5A, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps up to 6)

Great for couples, Garden Court is a first-floor duplex tucked away on a private lane off the Beech Hill Road in Historic Somesville. Our quiet rural setting offers the perfect spot to come home to between adventures. Garden Court's entrance is located witthin our fenced-in courtyard at 5A. Beech Mountain, located within Acadia National Park, is just 1 1/2 miles from your front door. The three best swimming/kayaking/canoeing lakes are right around the corner by car or bicycle. Farm-to-table freshness is just 1/3 mile from the home at Beech Hill Farm, an organic farm stand. Enjoy an autumn sunset stroll along Beech Hill Road; drive 15 minutes into Bar Harbor with all that seaside town has to offer, or head the other way and discover 'The Quiet Side' of Mount Desert Island. Garden Court is perfectly situated to access all the wonders of our beautiful island and Acadia National Park. An evening of child care may be available upon request; all situations considered.

$50 MULTI-WEEK DISCOUNT There is so much to see and do! Our home comfortably accommodates up to 6 people and is tastefully appointed and fully equipped. Garden Court is pet friendly, so bring the whole family for a week (or two) to remember.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: My husband, John, and I have lived on Mt Desert Island for nearly 40 years. I landed my dream job seven years ago as head gardener at Thuya Garden, a beautiful English border garden in Northeast Harbor. John is a building contractor and has built many beautiful shingle style homes on the island. We love to travel in our Scamp Camper that we've nicknamed 'Shrimp Scampi'.

Why the Owner Chose Mount Desert, ME, USA:
We fell in love with this beautiful property and incredible location in 1989. John built Garden Court for my mother when she retired to Maine. We now rent the ground floor of her home and we live upstairs. Garden Court sits on one acre of land along a private driveway in a quiet neighborhood. Check out the beautiful sunsets from Beech Hill or hike Acadia National Park trails just one mile away. I'm happy to answer any questions you may have; call 207-244-4090. Also, my daughter in law Vanessa helps me with all aspect of Garden Court (207)669 5060. She would be happy to assist our renters with any help needed. Priscilla Hutton.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Great family location. Perfect for couples or friends traveling together. Easy access to our island's best swimming beaches and adventures into Acadia. Garden Court guests enjoy fishing and carry-in canoe/kayak launching privileges at exclusive Somesville Town Dock. Bring your mackerel gear and squid jigs! Clean, smoke free rental with everything needed for a perfect vacation. Our rental manager is available close by through out your vacation should renters need assistance.
