We are located in downtown Bar Harbor in walking distance to the Sand Bar, natural food and grocery store, the village green, restaurants, Reel Pizza (movie theater), Abbe Museum and much more. Our home is on a quieter residential side street. As a family we enjoy walking into town for treats at MDI Ice Cream or Ben and Bills or getting a great cup of coffee at Choco Latte. We bike, walk or scooter to the town beach, Village Green and shore path as well!
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We are a family of three transplanted to Bar Harbor from Portland, ME in search of a simpler life style. My husband is a faculty member at the College of the Atlantic, our son attends the local elementary school and I am a therapist with a small private practice in town and teach guidance on the islands of Frenchboro and Great Cranberry in their one room school houses. We love traveling and though we miss a beautiful time of year on Mount Desert Island (MDI), we use the summers to explore other parts of the United States and world. We love the outdoors and spend time camping, hiking, canoeing, skiing and biking.
Why the Owner Chose Bar Harbor, ME, USA:
When we lived in Portland, ME we would come to MDI in the Fall for long weekends and hike in Acadia National Park. It was great getting away and playing in the park, sailing with friends and trying new places to eat. One visit I wondered out loud that it would be nice to live here...ten years later it happened!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Buying a home in downtown Bar Harbor was not easy! After looking at many, many properties, we selected The Rusticator for its convenience and walkability. We walk to most everything: our elementary school and playground, work, shopping, the green, restaurants, ice cream and yoga classes. The open concept kitchen filled with natural sunlight was perfect. The backyard with its spacious lawn, deck and gardens is unique in downtown Bar Harbor and has been great for outdoor grilling and essential for our son and his friends. The decorative fireplace and stairwell also caught my attention.
