Overview

About the property

7 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, sleeps 17, 18 with rollaway

Complete with old wooden beams and brilliant sunrise and sunset views. It is a wonderful house for large families, groups of friends or anyone who simply likes lots of space, airy rooms, scrubbed pine floors and country living by the sea. Perfectly located at the end of a quiet private road, you can relax to your hearts content. Watch seagulls wheeling high overhead, inhale the wonderful mixed fragrance of pine needles and salty sea air, listen to bird songs or stroll down to the shore in Hulls Cove to look for sea glass and other treasures that the sea has left behind. Acadia National Park is just down the road. Hike or bike the scenic carriage roads and trails, climb a mountain, go sea kayaking or walk over to secluded Lake Wood for a swim.

May we also suggest taking a moment to look at our 6 bedroom Orchard House situated on the same private lane.

It is property # 3752195 on Homeaway and VRBO

Notes:
This is a wonderful house for children; with one and a half acres of rolling lawns, lightly wooded for adventures and exploring. Well behaved dogs are welcome but because of the town leash law they are not allowed to roam free. The house is stocked with everything necessary to make your stay carefree. A large deck and patio with a gas and charcoal grill offer plenty of room for outdoor dining. It is a short Walk to the Hulls Cove General Store where you can get a morning newspaper and local gossip or catch the Island Explorer Shuttle bus to downtown Bar Harbor and most points in Acadia National Park and on Mount Desert Island.

Rustic farmhouse in a beautiful setting.

  • 5 of 5

Spacious rooms in a lovely old farmhouse. Renting this house for our family of 12 was so much better than renting a room in a hotel. The house provided us with a much better family togetherness as there was a limited amount of options to distract from family time.

Couldn't Have Asked for More

  • 5 of 5

17 of us stayed at this beautiful home for a school trip. The house was amazing and had everything that we could possibly need. It was less than a 5 minute drive to the Hulls Cove entrance to Acadia National Park, so it couldn't have been in a more convenient location. The students thoroughly enjoyed their stay and I am very thankful to the owners for being so cooperative and helpful. If you are heading to Acadia or Bar Harbor (which was about a 10 minute drive) I highly recommend this rental, it is beautiful. We even had a friendly deer that wandered in and out of our yard quite a few times which just added to this wonderful experience. Thank you again!

Owner's Response: The students were absolutely great, it was wonderful to see so much exciting, healthy energy arriving at the farmhouse! The beauty and natural wonders of Acadia are breathtaking. It has been said that once you sleep on an island you are never the same, I hope you guys all felt a bit if that magic here on Mount Desert Island. Thank you so much for coming to stay with us.

Fantastic property all the way around!!

  • 5 of 5

So happy we booked this property for my daughters graduation from UMaine!! The charm of this farm house can be felt at every turn, what a gem!! We had a lovely time from beginning to end and can't thank Trish enough for her hospitality. This is truly a vacation spot to come back to time and time again!! The location is perfect....just minutes from the park entrance and Bar Harbor town while still being secluded and relaxing. Everyone there (13 of us) said it felt like home. Loved every minute of it....thank you!!

Wonderful birthday week!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to spend my 60th birthday with my family. ! We had gorgeous weather and when we were not out adventuring on the island we were on the deck. The deck was our evening meeting place and allowed us to look out over the yard where the grandchildren and adults were playing. The large room on the back of the house fit us all when we had a family sing along! It was in close proximity to Acadia entrance and Bar Harbor, as well as just a 10 min walk to Hulls Cove to collect "treasures". Would rent it again in a heartbeat!

Great house for family gatherings

  • 5 of 5

The house was as pictured on the site. It was perfect for our family reunion with 10 adults and 4 children. There was plenty of space for everyone, with a great yard for the kids and a wonderful porch as well. The house was well maintained and clean. Good linens, towels and beds. The owner was very responsive to questions about the area and where to get groceries. The house is at the end of a private road and so very quiet, but also only a 5 minute drive to Acadia National Park. The kitchen and grill make it easy to prepare food for a large family gathering. We loved visiting the park and other scenic areas of Mount Dessert Island. I would definitely recommend this house to friends (and have done so already).

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

When is the last time you spent an entire week with twelve (twelve!!) family members? For me, it was last week. My daughter recently graduated from LSU School of Veterinary Medicine and chose Maine as her post-graduation destination. And this wonderful home played a big part in the success of our vacation. Upon arriving, we found this warm, charming home sparkling clean with fluffy towels in each bathroom, a fully stocked kitchen, and all the necessary amenities. The location is handy with a five minute drive into Bar Harbor or Acadia National Park as well as a quick walk to the beach and grocery store. There was plenty of room for all of us to hang out together - and plenty of room for all of us to spend in separate quarters! We loved this house, we miss is already, and definitely recommend it to all of you out there. GO TO MAINE AND STAY IN THIS HOUSE!!!! Thank you, Trish, you're the best.

Hulls Cove
Car: recommended

Hulls Cove is a quiet and beautiful little cove just 3 miles from downtown Bar Harbor.The sun rises over the water and the Porcupine islands, each morning; the sky and sea delight the eye. Some days the islands are draped in fog and the water looks like silver. Other days the water sparkles like diamonds and countless shades of blue. It is ever changing and always breathtaking. At the Hulls Cove General Store you can pick up coffee, a newspaper and grocery items or board the free Island Explorer shuttle bus. The Chart Room Restaurant offers delicious dining right on the water or pop into Peppers for pizza and calzones.

Lake Wood is just up the road. It is part of Acadia and a great place to swim. Bullfrogs like it too!
