A covered tongue and groove porch surrounds the living room on two sides, with two entries into the living room.

A built in cherry wood glass cabinet and bar with a wine refrigerator is in the corner. The interior wall is open, allowing communications across the passage and the kitchen.
The kitchen is separated from the passage by a peninsula that seats four for meals. The four burner propane stove and oven, dishwasher, microwave, Sub Zero refrigerator and cooking equipment including coffee maker, portable mixer, blender, and mini food processor make meal preparation a pleasure.

Acadia National Park offers miles of hiking and biking trails, including about 50 miles of gravel carriage roads suitable for bikes and horses. There are ocean side walks near Bass Harbor Light, picnic areas near an extensive seawall, mountain hiking trails accessed easily from the main roads, swimming in Echo Lake, boat tours to the Cranberry Islands, sail and power boat rentals, and guided ocean kayak tours. Several park museums offer programs and exhibits about the development of the park and the natural features and wildlife. Bar Harbor and Northeast Harbor are each a half hour drive away and offer extensive souvenir shopping, whale watching, boat excursions and restaurants. The house also has access within a very short walk to a broad stone beach that is great for exploring.
