CLICK ON THE MAIN PHOTO ABOVE TO SEE ADDITIONAL PHOTOS

This wonderful and spacious home, once part of the Kenarden estate built by J. S. Kennedy in the late 1800s was purchased decades later in 1929 by the founder of The Jackson Laboratory. Today, summer visitors to this historic home will enjoy beautiful renovations that made it the first-ever designer showhouse for Maine Home and Design magazine. With its classic white picket fence, front covered porch, and brick pavers at the street and entryway, you'll feel the welcoming effects of this lovely home. With nice amenities and spacious interiors, Brightholme invites you to come inside and settle in for a lovely vacation with family and friends. Enjoy your morning coffee on the front covered porch or venture out early to stroll Bar Harbor's famous Shore Path with gorgeous views of Frenchman Bay and the Porcupine Islands. Walk the entire Path or take a shortcut through the neighborhood to reach Bar Harbor's shops, restaurants, attractions, and nearby parks and playgrounds. Acadia National Park entrances are also just minutes away. Venture a short distance to the "Village Green" in the center of town to catch the free Island Explorer shuttle or down to the Harbor where you'll find various excursions to choose from. Easy access to National Park attractions and Village amenities makes Brightholme the perfect cottage from which to enjoy all that Mt. Desert Island has to offer!

Exit past the laundry area to a side porch and a long driveway with plenty of off street parking.

Ratings and Reviews

Family vacation
by Erin T. on Jul 14, 2019

Our family and friends really enjoyed our stay at Brightholm. The front porch was our favorite place to hang out morning and night. The location to the shore path and the town was convenient for our group of 13 to come and go at our leisure. We had a great time biking Acadia, kayaking Long Pond and listened to live music at the annex nearly every. I would definitely recommend this home for large groups, especially with teenagers.

We absolutely loved this home!!! It had everything we needed and so much space for everyone to spread out plus we loved being able to walk to everything. Would stay here again for sure.

Amazing, beautiful house & great booking experience.


Reunion/Vacation
by Karen W. on Jul 07, 2017

There were four adult couples and we all enjoyed the Brightholm. It is very spacious inside and out. It has an up to date kitchen with good appliances and the rooms are very tastefully decorated. The front porch is a fun meeting place. The location is perfect. You are a few blocks from Main street with shopping and eateries and a short distance from the Shore Path.

The weather was amazing. We were abel to really enjoy all that Bar Harbor and Acadia have to offer. Location worked for everyone - close to town, the park, and the water! We loved the house - especially the front porch and the big dining room.


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.
