About the Property
Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)
Start your day sipping coffee or tea in the sunny south-facing kitchen with warm wooden cabinets and floors, and granite countertops. End your day of exploring in the cozy living room or in the front garden. Or go upstairs and sit on the private 'tree house' balcony off the master bedroom, sipping wine and watching the evening descend while enjoying the cool breezes that often sweep in off the ocean in the late afternoon.
This adorable, unique home features fun cottage colors and stained glass windows in the kitchen and upstairs twin bedroom. A cathedral ceiling, fan, and air conditioner in the master bedroom will keep you comfortable even on the warmest nights. Lay in bed at night on professionally laundered linens and view stars through the skylight.
Our cottage sleeps four but can sleep six with the addition of the futon in the downstairs sitting room/den. Downstairs you will find an open floor plan with an entryway, a large eat-in kitchen, living room with a chimney made of local granite, sitting room/den and full bath. Upstairs is the master bedroom with queen bed and private balcony, a bedroom with twin beds, and a full bath with stained glass mirror, shower and clawfoot tub.
You need never worry about finding a parking place in Bar Harbor! From our peaceful cottage you will have just a short walk (10 minutes or less) to all the attractions of downtown: restaurants, cafes, movie theater, ice cream shops, art galleries, the Abbe Museum, etc. From the nearby Village Green you can access the Island Explorer bus system and travel for free all over Mount Desert Island. A short walk in the other direction brings you to the lower terminus of Bar Harbor's historic and scenic Shore Path. You can also walk from our cottage to the Great Meadow Loop Village Connector Trail into Acadia National Park and visit Sieur de Monts Spring and the Wild Gardens of Acadia, or access trails to Dorr Mtn, Cadillac Mtn, Kebo Mtn, and Champlain Mtn. On Sunday mornings you can walk two blocks to the wonderful Farmer's Market in the YMCA parking lot, where you can purchase fresh produce, local cheese and dairy products, baked goods, and other delicious local treats.
We love our dog and welcome your well behaved canine companion into our home. Bar Harbor is a dog friendly town; however dogs do need to be leashed and cleaned up after. Some shops will even offer your canine companion a treat. We would be happy to share some places to go with your dog where you can both run free.
The spectacular scenery of Mount Desert Island will leave you breathless. Opportunities for hiking, biking, kayaking and just plain exploring abound. When you book your stay we will be glad to share some of our favorite places on this island with you.

Year Purchased: 1997
About the owner: We are both retired, from careers in hospital nursing and speech/language pathology in the public schools. Our three children are grown and all live in different parts of Maine. We share our home with one dog and two cats.
Why the Owner Chose Bar Harbor, ME, USA:
We originally bought our Bar Harbor home to provide housing for our daughter, who was attending College of the Atlantic in 1997. (We've been coming to Bar Harbor since the 1970's). We love the area so much, we decided to retire down here.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We love the proximity of so many wonderful places from our cottage. A favorite morning ritual is taking our dog for a walk, stopping at the local market to get a cup of coffee, and then continuing to the Shore Path, where we sit on some rocks overlooking Frenchman's Bay and enjoy the amazing view while sipping our coffee. It's a great way to start a summer day!
