About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This is a charming Chalet-style home with 200-foot shore frontage on Bass Harbor, with views of the Harbor and outlying islands. The Chalet sits on a private, wooded lot (screening you from neighbors), with a large 12' x 24' deck overlooking the Harbor.

Relax on the deck and watch lobster boats, sail boats, canoes, kayakers, and the Swans Island Ferry within the Harbor, or enjoy the view from the fully-appointed living room, dining area, or the ocean-view bedroom. Kids will love to feed the ducks that visit the shore, and you'll enjoy the sunsets from our shore as well. They are spectacular! The 'Chalet' also has spacious off-road parking.

The property is adjacent to Acadia National Park, which offers beautiful scenery and these recreational opportunities: mountains, ocean views, fresh water lakes, and hiking trails. Also available are naturalist cruises and hikes, whale watching, kayaking, biking on carriage roads, and fresh seafood!

Keywords: On the Ocean. Single family home. Quiet, scenic, comfortable.

Owner info

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our property is on a 0.3 mile dead-end, paved road, so it doesn't see a lot of traffic. Parking is off road in our spacious driveway. Our property is lined with greenery (mostly white spruce) so there's a good measure of privacy as well. Several renters have commented that it serves as a 'quiet oasis' after a hectic day of sight-seeing. Perhaps that helps explain the fact that we have MANY repeat guests. Some have returned for five, six, and seven years. One couple has been with us for ten years as of 2012!
