Briar Lodge: Discover this rare shorefront offering within walking distance of Bar Harbor’s village center! Recently renovated and redecorated, Briar Lodge provides a unique shorefront opportunity with a rich history. With its private location adjacent to the southern end of the Shore Path, the echoes of the Gilded Age of Bar Harbor’s cottage era reverberates in the surrounding landscape. Once the servant quarters to The Briars Estate, built by J. Montgomery Sears, Briar Lodge is an original William Ralph Emerson design, with an interesting “upside down” layout. The main estate, torn down in 1968, was host for two summers to the John D. Rockefeller family in 1908 and 1909 and the birthplace of Nelson Rockefeller in 1908. The home’s second owner, Ned and Evelyn Walsh McLean, were the proud owners of the Hope Diamond!

FIRST FLOOR: Bedroom with Queen bed. Bedroom with King bed. Shared Full Bathroom with combined tub and shower.

SECOND FLOOR: Spacious combined Living/Dining area with table that seats six, water views, lofted ceilings with exposed rafters. Small kitchen with pretty alcove nook and table that seats four. Half Bath. Bedroom with Twins.

DECK: Small deck on side of house overlooking lawn.

APPLIANCES: Standard kitchen appliances, washer/dryer, Cable TV, Internet Service. Sorry, no dishwasher.

EXTRAS: Shore Path access.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to its steep staircase, this home may not be suitable for those with very young children or who have difficulty walking.
