Fabulous Waterfront Post and Beam Home near Acadia
Bar Harbor Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island

Extremely satisfied! Amazing property!

  • 5 of 5
What a gorgeous home! The home and the property are both amazing. The post and beam is right on the bay and has absolutely stunning views! It was also conveniently located on the island with easy access to Bar Harbor and Ellsworth. There were lots of restaurants, shopping and activities close by- short drive into town. I rented the home for a small family reunion/wedding gift and every member of my family was extremely satisfied and couldn't stop talking about how nice the house was. Brenda did an excellent job outfitting the home with everything you would need for a comfortable stay. There were tons of extra blankets in each closet, wood for the fire, propane for the grill, wifi, laundry machines, tons of towels, first aid supplies, and every utensil and kitchen appliance you would ever need (she also had an awesome crock pot, for those of you who enjoy cooking). The layout was fabulous! On the first floor there's a large kitchen and breakfast bar, a dining area, a huge living room, a sitting area surrounded by windows that looks out onto the bay, a wrap around porch for BBQing, a nice bedroom and full bath. This was great for our family because my mother has ambulatory issues and had access to everything she needed right on the first floor! The upstairs was really cool- huge loft type room (we called it the honeymoon suite because it was so large and private). There's also another bedroom on that floor, another sitting area that overlooks the living room and a really large/unique full bath! The finished walkout basement was awesome as well! Great area for watching movies and playing games. The description I received from Brenda's website and her e-mails was very accurate (this includes the layout, amenities, etc.). The property was well maintained and the house was spotless when we arrived. Brenda was absolutely awesome throughout the entire process. She took the time to answer all of my questions and then my family's questions (and they had a lot of questions). She was patient and thorough and upon final payment, she sent a very detailed e-mail with directions and suggestions of great restaurants and places to go! I found this to be very helpful. She also had a comprehensive binder at the house of menus, site seeing activities, etc. I would absolutely recommend this property!

Comfy and Beautiful

I wanted to send you a note letting you know how much we enjoyed our stay in the house in Maine. It was very comfy and beautiful. The house was very well equipped and we had fun cooking there. My mother wanted me to convey to you that she especially appreciated the quality of the stuff in the house. The décor is nice and simple and pretty and, for example, the pots are good quality. That's often not the case in rentals, and it makes for a very pleasant stay! Also, it was plenty warm. The fireplace was a plus, lots of atmosphere. The view out to the water was great, especially at sunset. Brenda was great to work with and suggested great restaurants. We will definitely be back!

Activity and Interests

We are 12 minutes from Bar Harbor (8 miles) with its shopping and

restaurants and 10 minutes to Acadia National Park, with plenty of

bike trails and hiking.

The Bar Harbor and Mt Desert area is a wonderful place to vacation

with its rock-bound coast and soaring granite cliffs. From the

stonewall-lined and tree-covered road leading you into our village,

to the sweeping vistas from atop Cadillac Mountain, there is a

special mystique to Bar Harbor. Nestled on the east side of Mt.

Desert Island, surrounded by Acadia National Park, we have welcomed

visitors for over a hundred years. Bar Harbor and Acadia National

Park have a wide variety of offerings for visitors. There truly is

something for everyone.

We offer a wide array of activities from the most relaxed to the

most rigorous, dining for all tastes and budgets and shopping in our

unique shops and galleries. Be sure to plan enough time to enjoy our

area and consider using us as a base of operations to see all of

Downeast Maine. We are only a short distance to other famous

attractions such as Campobello Island, Franklin Roosevelt's summer

home, the Schoodic Peninsula, the mainland part of Acadia National

Park, and other islands, coastal attractions and nature based

attractions. Once the summer playground of wealthy and famous

Americans, Bar Harbor was celebrated throughout the world as a

quiet, beautiful resort village, worlds away from the hustle and

bustle of New York, Boston, and Paris. Today, the 'summer people'

still come to our island paradise, but many visitors also arrive for

the brilliant fall foliage. And more and more, people are coming to

experience our winter wonderland and the surprises of spring.
