activities and attractions in Bar Harbor Maine

Sail up to the house (you will need a dinghy to get to beach), on this pristine shore with edible mussels. Free Island Explorer bus stops right outside the driveway during peak season (consult their web-site for schedule). Within walking distance of historic Salisbury Cove and 1.5 miles from Acadia National Park Hulls Cove entrance.  Seven minutes by car from Hancock County airport, one hour from Bangor.  Pirate's Cove mini-golf down the road as well as Mainley Meats (Bar-B-Que), Bay Gulls bagels and deserts and ice-cream and the Trenton Lobster Pound (other direction).  You can fish in the ocean without a license or get a license and fish on Hamilton Pond which is  within walking distance.  If you are familiar with kayaks, paddle across the way to the MDI Biolab and float through the stone arch at high tide (see picture), or paddle further around the point and picnic in the "Ovens" which are shallow waterside caves with pebble beaches, best at low tide.

In a boat, you can sail or motor to docks in Bar Harbor or drive (7 minutes) to town.

The Hulls Cove entrance to Acadia National Park is 2 miles away.  Drive there, bike there or take the bus (you can put your bikes on the front grill of the bus).  Ranger programs, hiking on graded paths up the mountain or biking or walking on the carriage trails (no cars) are fun things to do.  You can swim in a lake with a lifeguard or dare the "Ledges" and enter Echo Lake by the cliff.

Local church is Eden Baptist Church. Jazzercise classes are in the social hall.

Kebo Valley golf Club is a historic course in Bar Harbor.  Lessons, pro shop are up to date.  Other, local golf courses also close-by.

In Ellsworth a seasonal locomotive takes visitors on a scenic ride.

Restaurants for every taste abound from the Chart House, a sea-side fish house, to Havana's, a latin restaurant with a wine list of note, to Epi's a downtown cafeteria, to Nostranos, a private Italian restaurant. 

During July and August music abounds with the Bar Harbor Music Festival (with live opera) and the Northeast Harbor Chamber series.  Repertory theater( good) and the local cinema are where the locals hang out.

I can help suggest dining and activities for you including activities for kids.

The Artists

Review submitted: October 28, 2013   Date of arrival: October 13, 2013

Absolutely fabulous home for a large group: clean and spacious with drop dead views and lots of opportunities for privacy both indoors and out. Janice was responsive to all our pre-visit questions with excellent suggestions for both dining and touring. The location is convenient to Acadia and Bar Harbor, yet offers a sense of seclusion, making it the perfect place to gather after an active day. It doesn't get any better than this!

Party of 4 couples

Review submitted: October 14, 2013   Date of arrival: September 29, 2013

Loved this house, it was the perfect layout and size to accomodate our group of 8. The house
was very clean and well maintained. It was very well funrished and comfortable, even nicer
than the photos. The location was perfect with a bay view and access and the landscaping
was beautiful. Very private and secluded and yet very close in to Bar Harbor, Ellsworth and the
Nat'l Park. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone and would love to go there again.

We couldn't have asked for more

Review submitted: October 1, 2013   Date of arrival: September 22, 2013

Eight adult friends traveled from all over the US to spend a week together. This home provided a great "home base" for our group's stay on MDI. The photos and description were very accurate...there were no negative "surprises". The home is on one of the main roads a few miles outside of Bar Harbor. It's far enough off the road to be a quiet retreat and also far enough away from town to escape the crowds while still being close enough to everything to be convenient. We all scattered after breakfast each morning, but then enjoyed dinner together in the dining room at the house every night.

The house was very clean, the kitchen well-equipped for all of our needs, the beds/linens were comfy, and the setting was perfect...everyone enjoyed watching the wildlife in the garden out front and the sunrises along the beach out back. The house provided plenty of spaces for both privacy and togetherness. It was perfect.

The owner was easy to work with, provided lots of information about the house and the area, and was very responsive whenever we had questions.
