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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Bar Harbor, ME, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
