About the Property
House has 3 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, privacy, yet a short walk to town. (Sleeps 6)
Although there is no water view from the Guesthouse, as you can see in the cover photo, there are six Adirondack chairs, ottomans and tables right at the ocean's edge solely for this home.
Beautifully furnished and fully equipped, the guest house has three king-sized beds, along with four baths, a beautiful deck, air conditioning, and best of all, private, yet a very short walk to the best restaurants, shopping, etc.
This house is over 2200 sq. ft., has a chef's kitchen, and sleeps six easily with three king-sized beds. There are four full baths.
There is a path along the side of the estate to get to your Shorepath seating, as to not interfere with the privacy of those renting the main house, which is a couple hundred feet away from the carriage/guesthouse. There is very good separation for privacy on the Shorepath seating, as well.
MOST ALL BUSINESSES ARE WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE FROM YOUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME. BAR HARBOR HAS OVER 100 RESTAURANTS, SHOPPING, MUSEUMS, WHALE WATCHING CRUISES, EVENING WINE CRUISES, THE TOWN PIER ACTIVITIES, THE VILLAGE GREEN, WITH FREE CONCERTS NEARLY EVERY EVENING, A GREAT GOLF COURSE, THE FREE ISLAND SHUTTLE BUS JUST BLOCKS AWAY, AND OF COURSE, ACADIA NATIONAL PARK.....WITH A FIVE MINUTE DRIVE TO THE ENTRANCE.
THE BEST PART ABOUT THIS LOVELY HOME IS THE SHORT WALKING DISTANCE TO NEARLY EVERYTHING IN DOWNTOWN BAR HARBOR, especially my favorite restaurant, 'CAFE THIS WAY' for breakfast.
SHORT WALK TO DOWNTOWN BAR HARBOR CAFES, MOVIES, SHOPPING, SPECIALITY WINES, AND SEVERAL GREAT COFFEE HOUSES.
Bar Harbor offers numerous unique bars and restaurants (most very casual), night clubs, hysterical improv theater, two movie houses, new YMCA with a great gym, and huge swimming pool, (short walk to the Y) nearby athletic facilities, a nationally renowned public golf course (Kebo and two others on the island), immediate proximity to Acadia National Park's salt and fresh water beaches, convenient connections to airports in Bangor and Trenton, deep sea fishing, sailing, antiquing, and, of course the nearby Ellsworth L.L. Bean outlet.
A short walk down the Bar Harbor Shorepath to the town pier, go for a scenic cruise around the island, take the famous Bar Harbor Whale Watch boat, or walk over to the sandwich shops, and order an incredible picnic lunch to go, swim or kayak in pristine lakes, brave the ocean, hike the trails, or bike the carriage roads in nearby Acadia National Park, with bike and Kayak rentals nearby. To top it off hop aboard a four mast schooner for an evening wine cruise
THE SHOREPATH ESTATE
Built and named 'Devilstone' in 1885, this is one of the original estates on the famous Shorepath in Bar Harbor. Since the late 1800s, Bar Harbor has been the playground of the rich and famous, however it was, and still is a quaint, quiet and beautiful resort village on Mt. Desert Island. Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park offer just about any form of recreation you could desire.
The famous Kebo Golf Course is only five minutes from your home, and three other golf courses are close by, as well. Kebo is the eighth oldest golf course in the United States.
The entrance to Acadia National Park is but a five minute drive. Hiking in Acadia is an unforgettable experience for the novice, or the truly experienced. Most all forms of rental equipment is available, however biking and kayaking seem to be the most popular.
CLEANING FEES EXPLAINED! THERE ARE NO UP FRONT, OR SET CLEANING FEES! THE FEE, IF ANY, IS UP TO YOU.
The cleaning/damage deposit is $1,000.00, and completely, and quickly refundable if the Carriage/Guesthouse is left in the same condition as you found it upon arrival.
Unlike many other weekly rentals, we don't charge any up front, or set cleaning fees. The fee, IF ANY, depends on how much cleaning we have to do once you leave.
We launder all sheets, and towels, make the beds, clean the bathrooms after you leave, and the rest is up to you for 100% refund. Our cleaning fee policy is ideal for those who leave the Guesthouse as they found it.
Fortunately over 95% of our return guests leave the Carriage/Guesthouse clean and tidy, which is why we stopped charging a fixed cleaning fee.
WELCOME TO BAR HARBOR! PLEASE EMAIL ME WITH ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS!

Due to abuse, I now have a stricter cancellation policy. If for some reason you do need to cancel your reservation, I will do my best to rent your week(s) to another party, and return your money. If I do find another party, there will be a $500.00 cancellation fee deducted from your refund. If I can't find another party to rent your week(s), you will forfeit your funds. Thank you!

Year Purchased: 1980
About the owner: My name is John, and I'm an artist.......a painter. I've lived in Bar Harbor for 35 years. Mount Desert Island is an exciting, and ever changing place to live. With Acadia National Park only five minutes away, it has it all.
Why the Owner Chose Bar Harbor, ME, USA:
I chose this house in 1980 because of it's proximity to town. I can walk to everything, while others are circling town looking for that elusive parking spot. Walking downtown for the free evening concerts on the Village Green is one of my favorite things to do.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
I've designed oceanfront seating for six on Adirondack type chairs, with tables and ottomans, very close to the ocean, and it's become my favorite spot on the property. It's wonderful for that morning cup, or that evening glass of wine.
