'Thankful Cottage' is located in the Village of Bar Harbor near the Town Pier, Town Beach, historic Shore Path walk, and the Museum in the Streets self guided walking tour. Built before the Civil War, the cottage has been lovingly rehabilitated and features the perfect blend of nostalgia with modern amenities. The cottage has off street parking and is walkable to boating, shopping, dining and cultural activities. Bar Harbor is named for the 'bar' to Bar Island which forms the harbor. Bar Island, portrayed by David Maitland Armstrong in his late 1800's painting, 'The Bar, Bar Harbor', is visible from the cottage.
The top floor of the cottage is master suite with king bed, sitting room with water view, walk-in closet, full bath and deck with water view.
The first floor includes a modern kitchen, living area with gas fireplace, den with pull out twin bed and a second full bath.
Wonder why the cottage is named, 'Thankful'? We traced the deeds back to a woman named Thankful Rodick who in the mid-1800's lived in the cottage. While Bar Harbor is thankful that this little cottage has survived for 165+- years, we actually named her after the person Thankful. The cottage is on the Bar Harbor historic
We hope you will be 'thankful' that you picked 'her' for your stay in downtown Bar Harbor. What could be better after a day of boating and hiking, followed by a gourmet dinner, than a walk home to your own historic cottage in the heart of Bar Harbor?
