This wonderful and spacious home, once part of the Kenarden estate built by J. S. Kennedy in the late 1800s was purchased decades later in 1929 by the founder of The Jackson Laboratory. Today, summer visitors to this historic home will enjoy beautiful renovations that made it the first-ever designer showhouse for maine home and design magazine. With it's classic white picket fence, front covered porch, and brick pavers at the street and entryway, you'll feel the welcoming effects of this lovely home. With nice amenities and spacious interiors, Brightholme invites you to come inside and settle in for a lovely vacation with family and friends. Enjoy your morning coffee on the beautiful front covered porch or venture out early to stroll Bar Harbor's famous shore path with gorgeous views of the harbor and Porcupine Islands.
