About the property

Bar Harbor is a magical place and 'Sunset' is the perfect home from which to enjoy all it has to offer. Walk into town to shop or eat, bike into Acadia National Park, kayak off the sand bar, board a boat to fish or whale watch or simply relax and enjoy the view from the back porch. You will find that everything is easily accessible from this spectacular home built in 1910 and listed on the National Historic Registry.

Sunset features 2 king bedrooms, 2 queen bedrooms, 2 full bedrooms and 2 bedrooms with 2 twins. It has 7 full bathrooms. To accommodate additional guests, we also have a living room on the 2nd floor with two full futons. For those not able to handle stairs, we also have a sitting room with a twin bed on the first floor along with a full bathroom.

Enjoy sunset on the glassed in back porch or on the patio, both overlooking the beautiful garden and Frenchman's Bay.

About Angelique Bennett

My husband and I fell in love with Bar Harbor 15 years ago when we visited with our first child. We now have 4 children and Bar Harbor and Acadia have become one of our families favorite vacation places; so much so that we decided to purchase Sunset.

Angelique Bennett purchased this house in 2013

Why Angelique Bennett chose Bar Harbor

Sunset is one of those special places that is hard to describe. Listed on the National Historic Registry, it provides a spectacular view of Frenchman's Bay. We fell in love with it the first time we saw it and purchase it 1 month later.

What makes this house unique

Sunset's charm lies in its historical beauty, its views and its location. We have done our best to furnish the house with antiques to maintain its old world charm. It truly is a one of a kind property.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This gorgeous property was perfect for our family reunion. The house was spacious and well furnished. The location is convenient to everything and the owners were very helpful; they even provided a brand new slow cooker for us!

Fantastic location.

  • 5 of 5

This house has a fantastic location. It is a short walk to the harbor and downtown area plus the large grocery store is a block and a half away. The House was perfect for our family reunion because of the large number of bedrooms and bathrooms. The porch is lovely to spend time in as is the large yard. The view of Frenchman bay is terrific and we watched the sunset from the porch many nights.

We walked into town to eat dinner some nights, strolled along Shore Path and walked to Village Green to take a shuttle bus into Acadia National Park.

Mount Desert Island is a beautiful place, especially Acadia. There is lots to do, plenty of hiking, biking on the carriage roads, kayaking, whale watching, visiting the small towns and harbors etc.

I highly recommend this house if you have a large group of guests.

Perfect Home with Water Vies

  • 5 of 5

We've just had a wonderful 2-week vacation with all our family. The home is big enough for all, and we loved the nooks and crannies to read, put puzzles together, play games, and eat. The in-town location means you don't have to drive anywhere! Highly recommend this house--it is truly a home.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

The house is located in the downtown area of Bar Harbor with great walking access to dinning and shopping. Acadia is just ten minutes away. The ocean is right out the door. The house was comfortably big enough for three families without feeling crowded. Loved it and would do it again!

A perfect vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

The Sunset house was a fantastic place for our family reunion. As a group of 16 we fit very comfortably. The kitchen was very well equipped for making family dinners. The grocery store was an easy walk - no need to take the car! Breakfast on the outdoor patio every morning was delightful. The yard was so fun for playing frisbee and badminton (we brought a net). The house is a short stroll away from downtown Bar Harbor. Our stay couldn't have been any better. Thank you!
