We invite you to spend a glorious week in our elegant Post and Beam
Before I get too wrapped up back in the office, want to shoot you a quick note just to say thank you - we had a wonderful vacation, we loved your home and LOVE Bar Harbor! Thank you!!!!
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.
