Why Owner chose Bar Harbor

All my childhood summers were spent in this area. after college, i vowed to become a year round resident. i met my husband, whose family was one of the first settling families centuries ago. after many years living on an outer island off the coast of mount desert, we built this house. we worked very hard to come up with the perfect location and feeling for the house. we love that it is so quiet and serene yet close to work and school for our family. this is our full time home. we spend the summer on cranberry island so are happy to have the house used and loved while we are there.

                                                        Lovely home in the woods, close to everything.

                                                        Mary H.

                                                        This home is exactly as pictured. Beautiful and clean interior within a lovely wooded setting. Gourmet kitchen. It is a 15 min drive to Southwest Harbor and Acadia National Park. All of the attractions of Bar Harbor are a 15 min drive as well. There are hiking trails in close proximity of the home. The owner is prompt, helpful and extremely courteous in her correspondence. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

                                                        Lovely, secluded home in the woods

                                                        Barbara Z.

                                                        We had a great experience staying in Lisa's family's home in the woods of Mt Desert Island. The location is a welcome break from the busy areas near Bar Harbor yet is a short drive to all the highlights of Acadia. Everything was just as described and pictured and Lisa answered questions promptly. The beds were very comfortable. The fire ring in the yard was perfect for an evening outdoors listening to the birds sing. I visited with 3 other women friends and we would all stay again!

                                                        Perfect house and location

                                                        Our family of 7 (5 boys ages 18-8) have been vacationing in Acadia every year for many years. We hike every day and visit our favorite restaurants and shops in Bar Harbor and around the island. This year was our best trip ever and we attributed it to staying in this gorgeous house. It was the perfect size house for our big family. It had all the amenities we could hope for and we felt perfectly at home. We especially loved that it was isolated in the middle of the woods and we felt like it was placed right in the middle of one of our many hiking trails. The owner Lisa was very helpful and made us feel right at home. We hope to rent this house now every year because it couldn't be more perfect for us.
