Why Rick chose Trenton
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.'
What makes this House unique
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.'

Great place for families
We really enjoyed staying here with our daughter, her husband and infant during the beautiful fall season. The best part of this house is the view. Also it is close to many restaurants and a grocery store. A bit of a drive to Bar Harbor - but it was nice to be separated from the crowds. Very convenient to Acadia National Park. From the photos we knew that the interior would be a bit dated and that was not a big deal to us. The kitchen was well-stocked with all the supplies needed (except food of course). Take note that there are two bedrooms upstairs but no bathroom up there - which means the downstairs bathrooms are to be shared. Great for a family with children but not as ideal for more than two adult couples. The kayaks would have been fun to use - but we did not get around to doing that. Recommend this place highly! We had a great trip!
Hi Tracy - We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Bar Harbor View Cottage. We have considered adding a 3rd bathroom, but the logistics of putting it upstairs are challenging. Please come back so you can use the kayaks!
The view from the back deck is unreal! Most gorgeous star gazing at night and beautiful sunrises. Great place!
Star Gazing on the deck is awesome.
At certain times of the year when the sun is rising over Cadillac Mountain you can see the Green Flash too!
On the water
Beautiful and quiet location. GreSt beach and long private drive.
Well equipped and comfortable.
Thanks for your kind comments. Hope we'll see you again in the future!
We love it too! Glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope we'll see you again.
Our family had a wonderful stay here. The house is every bit as great as it looks in the pictures. It easily accommodated 9 people, and the location is beautiful and peaceful. Plenty of family gathering space as well as areas for privacy. The kitchen is well equipped, and paper products are supplied. We used the grill and also cooked over a fire on the beach. I can't say enough good things about it, and we may be back!
Hi Pam - We're so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay! Hope to see you again in the future.
Must get lobsters at least once from the Trenton Bridge Lobster Pound. Enjoy dozens of hiking trails through Acadia National Park (easy to extremely challenging). Don't miss the popovers and strawberry jam at Jordan Pond House (but be prepared to wait for a table).
