About the property

6 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12

''''La Maisonette'', circa 1886, is a beautiful 3,400 square foot, 6 bedroom home in downtown Bar Harbor nestled within Bar Harbor?s national historic district with a view of Frenchman's Bay and a beautiful 1/2 acre back yard.

Located on West Street, you are a short stroll to restaurants, shops, bike and kayaking rentals in the downtown area. Acadia National Park is just minutes away by car or rent a bike and walk to the shuttle in downtown Bar Harbor which will take you into the park to spend a day riding the Carriage Trail.

At low tide, walk around the corner and enjoy the unique experience of crossing a sand bar to Bar Island or simply walk along the sand bar collecting shells and photographing the spectacular views.

With its shingle style architecture, La Maisonette offers charm and character with high ceilings, detailed woodwork, a staircase tower, a solarium and fireplaces.

La Maisonette is fully furnished and offers a wrap around enclosed porch that provides a brief view of the ocean, 6 bedrooms that sleep 12, 3 full and one partial bathroom, WiFi, and HD TV, we believe it offers everything you need to enjoy a wonderful Bar Harbor vacation.

Why Angelique Bennett chose Mount Desert Island

We began coming to Bar Harbor when our first child was born. We fell in love with the town and Acadia National Park. We now have four children and are thrilled to own this beautiful home so they can grow up visiting Bar Harbor

A perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Perfect house, perfect location to restaurants, shops, a half block from the sand bar, and a perfect distance to Acadia. We came with kids and extended family and loved the many communal spaces in the house and the many doors that could be closed on the first floor to keep the kids from waking up their grandparents. The chefs in our family loved the kitchen!

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house. Location was perfect for everyone. Our family of 11 totally enjoyed the trip to Bar Harbor because of this house! Located close to all the restaurants and attractions we visited we never had to use a car. Beds were comfortable and we had enough bathrooms to accommodate everyone. Washers and dryers were perfectly located for clean towels daily.

I would highly recommend this house for anyone who loves to walk the shore and enjoy a week away from driving.

I would definitely recommend La Maisonette!!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't imagine a better location and house! The house is so beautiful, clean and well equipped for a large group; plenty of space for gathering both inside and out, large well equipped kitchen with 2 refrigerators, 2 washers and dryers. And, so much to do with in walking and biking distance; the Bar, the ocean, Acadia National park, shopping, fantastic restaurants. And even more to do with in a short car ride including fabulous antiquing! I would definitely recommend La Maisonette to anyone looking for a great place to have an unforgettable experience!

Amazing Week in Bar Harbor

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 12 ladies, first cousins, wives of a cousin, aunt or honorary aunt. Our stay at LaMaisonette was the perfect place for our varied personalities, needs and wants.

The home is perfectly situated 1 block from the bar. 1 block from the grocery and just a few blocks from downtown shopping and restaurants.

The common area rooms are designed for large group settings. 2 dining tables in the kitchen accommodated all 12 of us.There is also a formal dining room with large table. A large front porch facing the street is enclosed and perfect for morning coffee or evening glass of wine.

I look forward to visiting LaMaisonette again!

Thanks to the Bennett Family for sharing their wonderful home.

Our stay at La Maisonette was Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

We love this property!!! It is so clean and quaint, decorated with beautiful family antiques and a spacious sun room which made us feel luxuriously relaxed. The owners were charming and easy to work. They they went above and beyond to make our stay special . It is located one block from the water front, right in the heart of Bar Harbor, perfect for walking around town visiting restaurants and tons of local shopping. We could not have found a more accommodating location, was simply perfect! We will stay here again and will definitely recommend La Maisonette to our family and friends!
