About the Property

4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (sleeps 9); futons and sleep sofa also available

Bar Harbor View Cottage is the perfect place for your next trip to Maine. You will be delighted when you first see the stunning panoramic views of Acadia National Park and its mountains from our deck. Make sure you get up in time for sunrise as you'll be able to see it come up over Cadillac Mountain.

You'll be able to spot wildlife without even leaving your chair. You may see eagles, seals, dolphins, deer and moose. You can even take our kayaks across the bay to see seals up close and personal. The water near the cottage is teeming with mussels too.

Kids (of all ages) love the abundance of flat rocks along the shoreline that are perfect for skipping and the custom-built ping-pong table in the garage.

The cottage features four bedrooms which sleep nine, WiFi access, panoramic views, a well-stocked kitchen, a garage, ample parking, a ping-pong table, several kayaks, a gas grill and a gorgeous deck perfect for relaxing.

The main floor has the master king suite with adjoining bathroom, a second bedroom with a queen bed, kitchen, living room, dining area, den, laundry room and second bathroom. There is also an attached garage. The second floor offers two bedrooms. One has two twin beds and the other features a queen bed plus a twin bed.

We are about 16 miles from downtown Bar Harbor.

Year Purchased: 1973

About: Rick and Shelby Kinnaird currently live in the suburbs of Richmond, VA. Rick is retired from the computer industry and is working on his first novel. Shelby has a food blog called Diabetic Foodie and also works as a freelance web designer.

Why Trenton, ME, USA:
When Rick's parents retired, they built Bar Harbor View Cottage. Rick's father used to say 'Start walking up the East Coast and, when you've found prettiest spot, that's where we live.'

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The 180 degree views from our home are absolutely gorgeous and watching sunrise over Cadillac Mountain from the deck is breathtaking. One visitor said 'I always like to go to the beach on vacation, but this is a whole different level of relaxation.'
