Property Description:

If you desire Maine coastal living at its finest, you won’t do much better than “Bear Creek,” a classic shingle-style home with a contemporary twist, boldly perched on the granite shores of Frenchman Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. Entering the almost 16-acre property along the winding driveway through a forest of old and new growth trees and abundant mosses and lichens, guests are delivered from the hustle and bustle of the village of Bar Harbor, only minutes away, to a tranquil retreat with spectacular 180-degree views of Egg Rock Light, Thrumcap Island, Schoodic Peninsula and the open ocean. Enjoy the rising sun, passing lobster boats or cruising yachts, or the simple companionship of crashing surf against the rocky bluff below from this spectacular offering!

FIRST FLOOR: Large, light-filled living room with cathedral ceiling, stone fireplace and a resident Moose (you’ll understand when you see him). A generous professional kitchen and dining area with slate counters and an additional stone fireplace also includes an additional sitting area and doors leading to the front deck. Library/office with doors to deck and ocean views provides a quiet place to work and read. Spacious first-floor bedroom with king bed and semi-private full bath with shower only.

SECOND FLOOR: Two matching Master suites, each with king bed, stone fireplace, walk-in closet and door opening to a balcony overlooking the water, and private, Full Bath with soaking tub and walk-in shower. Laundry closet with stackable washer and dryer. Linen closet.

THIRD FLOOR: Two more spacious bedrooms each with two queen beds and spacious closet. One bedroom features a private full bath with tub and shower, and the other features a semi-private bath with shower only. Set between them is a game room with ping pong table.

OUTDOOR SPACES: A wrap-around, cedar deck and covered porch with hot tub, propane grill, and ample outdoor seating provides generous outdoor living spaces for entertaining, recovering from your lobster dinner, or just relaxing and looking out to sea as time passes by. A picnic table is only steps from the rocky shoreline and stairs to the pebble beach. Note that access to the water is via fairly steep terrain to the rocks below and is not recommended.

EXTRAS: Radiant heat, Hot tub, Propane Grill, Mountain Bikes (4), 1 set of golf clubs.

Ratings and Reviews

Vacation
by D B. on Sep 18, 2018

This is a MAGICAL place. What an incredible setting for enjoying all that Mount Desert Island has to offer. From the incredible stargazing at night, and beautiful sunrises in the morning, to warming up in front of a fire on a rainy day, every moment we spent here has felt like a small bit of paradise.

Absolutely AWESOME house – the views are amazing. We loved staying here.


Bar Harbor's village and surrounding rural residential areas are a popular destination for visitors to Acadia National Park. The town center offers diverse shops, restaurants and activities. Acadia National Park's Hulls Cove entrance, as well as other major entrances, are located just outside the village center. Not all properties listed as 'Bar Harbor' are actually in the village of Bar Harbor, since the town of Bar Harbor encompasses the northern half of Mt. Desert Island, most of which is quite rural in nature. However, homes within this area are usually between five and fifteen minutes' drive to the village center.

Property Description:

If you desire Maine coastal living at its finest, you won’t do much better than “Bear Creek,” a classic shingle-style home with a contemporary twist, boldly perched on the granite shores of Frenchman Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. Entering the almost 16-acre property along the winding driveway through a forest of old and new growth trees and abundant mosses and lichens, guests are delivered from the hustle and bustle of the village of Bar Harbor, only minutes away, to a tranquil retreat with spectacular 180-degree views of Egg Rock Light, Thrumcap Island, Schoodic Peninsula and the open ocean. Enjoy the rising sun, passing lobster boats or cruising yachts, or the simple companionship of crashing surf against the rocky bluff below from this spectacular offering!

FIRST FLOOR: Large, light-filled living room with cathedral ceiling, stone fireplace and a resident Moose (you’ll understand when you see him). A generous professional kitchen and dining area with slate counters and an additional stone fireplace also includes an additional sitting area and doors leading to the front deck. Library/office with doors to deck and ocean views provides a quiet place to work and read. Spacious first-floor bedroom with king bed and semi-private full bath with shower only.

SECOND FLOOR: Two matching Master suites, each with king bed, stone fireplace, walk-in closet and door opening to a balcony overlooking the water, and private, Full Bath with soaking tub and walk-in shower. Laundry closet with stackable washer and dryer. Linen closet.

THIRD FLOOR: Two more spacious bedrooms each with two queen beds and spacious closet. One bedroom features a private full bath with tub and shower, and the other features a semi-private bath with shower only. Set between them is a game room with ping pong table.

OUTDOOR SPACES: A wrap-around, cedar deck and covered porch with hot tub, propane grill, and ample outdoor seating provides generous outdoor living spaces for entertaining, recovering from your lobster dinner, or just relaxing and looking out to sea as time passes by. A picnic table is only steps from the rocky shoreline and stairs to the pebble beach. Note that access to the water is via fairly steep terrain to the rocks below and is not recommended.

EXTRAS: Radiant heat, Hot tub, Propane Grill, Mountain Bikes (4), 1 set of golf clubs.
