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!

Our wedding
by Carla G. on Sep 26, 2019

Gorgeous home, unmatched setting and glorious views!


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.


Vacation

We have enjoyed every minute of being on the water to celebrate our 5oth anniversary. This house is beyond description and have enjoyed every inch. Loved our time here.

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.
