Judy and I have owned this property for over 35 years and retired here in 1998 and we would not live anywhere else. The rental cottage has the best view on the property. We built our home adjacent to the cottage and that's where we live year round. The rental cottage is a complete identity unto itself and you will have complete privacy but if you want help or recommendations about anything in the surrounding area or have any problems with the cottage we are readily available. Otherwise, if we’re home, we will be nearly invisible. Enjoy your stay in our homestead.

About the owner: We are retired educators from New Jersey and we would not consider living anywhere else. We are at our happiest when our 3 grown children, their spouses and our 12 grandchildren visit. Ralph and Judy are active tennis players and are members of the Ellsworth Tennis Center. Ralph has also built a stained glass studio where he creates his art work mostly incorporated into our home and as gifts to our children. Both of us do volunteer work and serve on a local board of directors for developmentally handicapped adults and children.
Why the Owner Chose Town Hill, Bar Harbor, ME, USA:
We were first attracted to Mount Desert Island in 1972 when we visted the island with 3 young children. We loved having Acadia National Park so accessible for all our outdoor activities and entertainment. We especially liked hiking and biking the carriage trails, climbing the many mountain trails, swimming in both Echo Lake and Sand Beach and picking wild blueberries!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Restaurants are located all over the island. Whether you like casual, rustic, or fine dining , with our advice and direction, I'm sure you'll find many to suit your likes.
