Overlooking picturesque Bartlett's Harbor, this secluded property, set

among spruce trees, wildflowers, and rocky ledges, includes a small

house plus an "in-law cabin." It offers two parties privacy but close

proximity: a lawn separates the two buildings by 50'. Access to two

beaches (rocky and pebble) and the pier, along a dirt road, is a

two-minute walk.

The Barnacle proper has 3 small bedrooms plus a loft under the eaves

(6.5' standing room in center of loft), living/dining area with

wood-burning stove, small kitchen (gas stove, microwave, coffeemaker,

but no dishwasher), bathroom, and deck. The "in-law cabin" is a

one-room efficiency, with a comfy double bed, kitchen area, bathroom.

over the Camden Hills.

About the Owner

My elderly parents, Fred and Sue Allen, own the Barnacle, and I manage the rentals. They live in California, near UCLA. My dad's family has owned property on Barlett's Harbor since 1914, and they both continue to fly east each summer. Since I live closer, in NJ, tenants can contact me easily. I am a piano teacher. My husband and I have a teen-age son, 2 dogs and 2 cats.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our summer truly wouldn't be complete without a visit to the Barnacle! We love the quiet and the fabulous views from the deck, especially the sunsets! The house is rustic and cozy, just perfect for us. The studio is perfect for visitors, allowing them to have their own space as well. The Allens are wonderful owners, and do a great job taking care of the property. We are counting down the days till we can come back to the Barnacle.
