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

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the wonderful week we had together in Bar Harbor. Spending time with my mom, sister, aunts and cousins far exceeded my expectations. La Maisonette is the perfect home for sharing stories of the past and making so many more fun memories. The 10 of us were so comfortable in your home - it is the perfect layout and the fully stocked kitchen was great.

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!

La Maisonette the Perfect vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

LaMaisonette in Bar Harbor Maine was a perfect vacation spot for the 12 "girls" in our family to gather.. The house is both beautiful and comfortable , a luxurious step back in time but with all the modern conveniences.There is plenty of room to spread out and to gather in the large dining and living areas for memorable meals, uproarious games,cards and football games..The kitchen was well outfitted to prepare a simple or gourmet meal. La Maisonette is located right where all the action is yet offers an elegant quiet retreat with a glorious porch overlooking Frenchman Bay to relax on and watch the sunrise.Famous bridge street is right at the corner. A couple of blocks took us to down town with lots of great shops and eateries. . Acadian National Park, the ocean, hiking, kayaking etc were just a very short bike ride or drive away. Lobster pounds, ice cream parlors, candy shops, Irish Pub only a few blocks from La Maisonette.The owner supplied pamphlets for things to do in the area. The Chicken Barn and the Creamery were she sent us were wonderful for the antique hounds in the group. Everyone found something. "The pond" in the park was perfect for lunch and popovers. Most of us biked to it and to the beach, Cadillac mountain and the blow hole. The ocean views and climbing were wonderful with so many choices of places to go. I cannot think of a better place to take the family or a group then LaMaisonette in Bar Harbor..

What a great location! wonderfully appointed!

  • 5 of 5

What a great location! I could hike from here to Bar Island or the shore path, get a great meal, go shopping, go on a kayak tour...all within walking distance. The home is wonderfully appointed... easy to cook a meal for a large number of people, lots of games and books. Plenty of places to relax and hang out, so much space, everyday we hung out in a different room after enjoying Acadia or antiquing. Really nice to have parking for multiple cars. Rooms were clean and tons of towels and pillows. Nice to have access to washer/dryer as well. Just love it here and can't wait to return! Great opportunity to see the sunrise in Bar Harbor or on top of Cadillac Mountain, short drive or bike ride into Acadia National Park. Would definitely recommend to my friends!

Second vacation in La Msisonette

  • 5 of 5

Once again this lovely home lived up to all our expectations. From the front porch where we did most of our daytime living, to the backyard and lively volleyball games, it was perfect! The location right across the street from the Bar, ideal for kids and adults to find starfish and shells, and an easy walk to all Bar Harbors best restaurants and shopping means you never need to drive anywhere. It is so convenient for the large groups the house holds comfortably to have 2 refrigerators, washers, and dryers. Can't wait to return again!
