MOST SPECTACULAR OCEANFRONT VIEW IN ALL OF MAINE!!!!

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Bar Harbor - BAR HARBOR - OCEANFRONT - MDI

House designed for max view of OCEAN and Acadia Park wi huge guest suite & a/c

YOU WILL HAVE THE BEST VIEW IN ALL OF MAINE OF THE

OCEAN AND ACADIA NATIONAL PARK!!! We rent

quickly and discretely-- your confidentiality and pleasure is

our only goal!

WE CAN DO 4 TO 6 DAY RENTALS FOR SMALL PARITES. (For about the

price of 2 little stuffy hotel rooms in Bar Harbor!!!!!!!!!!) Will sleep

8-9 comfortably--- 12 with additional bedding. The 2000' house is designed for efficiency with No fossil fuels!!!

Central a/c and passive solar highlight the

efficiency and cleanliness of the home. Built recently, so you

are SAFE from lead paint, asbestos, and mold problems i

older homes. Our home is kept to a high hypo-allergenic standard for our guests! We charge no more for this! We have a forced air heat pump

air circulation system with filtration--- that's why there are no

stagnant air areas or damp spots in the home! Plus we have

central a/c even though we are on the Windward side of the

island with cool breezes. The town of Bar Harbor can be

very hot sometimes because it faces North and is blocked

from cool ocean breezes-- so always stay at least one mile

south of the central business district on the ocean or the

'heights' as the locals call them. That's why eagles live in our trees!!!! Plus the WINDWARD SIDE of MDI is the EAST

side of MDI, SOUTH of Bar Harbor where we are the CENTER

of ''Millionaires Row' of the Gilded Age of Bar Harbor.

This is considered to be the most beautiful and best view on the entire coast of Maine. It's rock face was painted

by the Hudson River School painters more than any landmark on In Bar Harbor or MDI.

With three full baths and four bedrooms the home will

handle 12 easily. A full kitchen attached to the Great Room will

let the chef (usually the lady of the house) know that she is not

being shut off in some remote kitchen but is enjoying actively

the spectacular views of the Great Room with her guests and

family-- and interacting with them as well.

Look down on the QM2 and huge ocean-going yachts

entering and leaving Bar Harbor. See eagles sitting in the

trees and their nests right near the house. See whales and

seals in front of the house!

Since we are on the 'windward side' of MDI our breezes

come from the ocean-- free of pollen and insects!!!

You will not want to leave this paradise, so take tons of

photos for great memories AND COME BACK SOON!!!!!

Note: you are receiving a special rate per week

which is a special reduction off the normal rate of $8300 per

week due to special contribution of the Owners in their efforts

help the environment and its wildlife.

NEW LIsting!!!! It was noted in a magazine that this site

is one of the few places on MDI where you can look out to sea

and see almost nothing 'man made.' Due to the protection

of Acadia National Park, the Ocean and the Porcupine Islands

appear almost exactly as they did when the Hudson River

School painters painted them in the mid 1800s. WE DO

NOT SHOW BOOKING DATES ON ANY PUBLIC SITE. AUG AND SEPT MOSTLY BOOKED.

SEND INQUIRY FOR YOUR DATES OF INTEREST. WE GET MANY VIPS IN THE FALL

AND DO NOT SHOW BOOKING DATES.

Bring that 'special someone' for a week and you will

have memories for a lifetime!!!!

Complimentary Champagne and Cheese/Humus on

arrival!

Go first class for about the price of two

little stuffy hotel rooms in Bar Harbor! See Bar

Harbor the way the Gilded Age families viewed it

in the 1890s.

NOTE OUR SENIOR AND MILITARY/VET

DISCOUNTS!!! MENTION DIS416 CODE ON

YOUR RES REQUEST.

Also, Windwardpassagebarharbor.com for

special rates and prices!!!!

[It is requested that the fireplaces not be used during the

About Nancy White

We do not show

our booking dates openly for security of the guests.

Special VIP security measures are offered at special rate--

call for details. Additional Note: There has been some

interest in purchasing the property. The house can be

added onto or a huge mansion can be built like the Gilded Age

'cottages' of 1890s. There is no limit on size. Since it is on

the edge of Bar Harbor sewer and water are town available.

Only one of few cottages that is free of any 'bed and breakfast'

restriction for future development. The deed allows for a

two lane road directly to the lot. Two in depth appraisals have

been done on the property. Built on solid granite we do not

have the problem of the Atlantic beaches 'of sand' washing away

along the lower U.S. coast and the rising ocean level. We

are well above the ocean level!!

The owners are descendants of James Russell Lowell

and Maria White Lowell, the romantic poets. The president

of Harvard resides in their family home, Elmwood at Harvard.

The Whites are also direct descendants of William White of

the Mayflower and their child, Peregrine, the first child of

English descent born in America in 1620. Their uncle,

Charles Eliot (longest serving President of Harvard),

sent George Dorr to Bar Harbor to investigate the beauty of

the area as reported by Hudson River painters, and George

Dorr reported back 'this whole island must be saved!!!'

You are staying on what was the 'crown jewel' of the original

Dorr estate-- where the first Gilded Age mansion in Bar Harbor was constructed. It was called 'Old Farm.' Nothing on MDI compares to this location

and it's view-- this is the center of 'Millionaires

Row' in the Gilded Age.

Acadia National Park. Center and highest location in 'Millionaires Row'

VISIT US DURING AUGUST AND SEPTEMBER.

George W. Vanderbilt to the left and Pulitzer to the right, were .

Vanderbilt owned 'Biltmore in N.C.' Even Evelyn Walsh McLean owner of the Hope Diamond and owner of the

McLean ( owner of the Hope Diamond) lived in BH in the

Briars-- where Nelson Rockefeller was later born. The Biddles

of Philadelphia were all over BH and the Dorances of

Campbell Soup fame owned the largest mansion on the

island, Kenarden Lodge in BH (the point north of our estate)--

they were from Philadephia, and Wayne, Pa.

The breezes on the 'windward side' come off the ocean,

so they are cool and free of pollens and insects!!!!

The town of Bar Harbor is NOT on the windward side-- it

faces North and can be quite warm in the summer without

the ocean breezes--- most of the homes are older as well

and not built to the 'green standard.' Also many older homes also use

fossil fuels which may cause allergy problems along with their

poss lead paint and asbestos insulation throughout and mold.

Please note that we do not allow pets or smoking-- since

some of our guests may have allergy problems.

You deserve the BEST.........so why not stay with us?

Great views.

  • 4 out of 5
Great views of Maine. House was nice. The most appealing shot of the house is the great view and the fireplace. The fireplace comes with a great sign that says "NO FIRES ALLOWED" so even on a cold night where you can smell everyone elses fireplace you may not have one. So that picture is VERY DECEPTIVE! The house was great though. Property was in a perfect location, close enough to town but far enough away to be quiet and cozy. One of the bedrooms has no storage and is VERY SMALL. But great rental might be a little over priced.

Acadia Ocean Haus has the most spectacular view of the Ocean in all of Maine!!!!!!!

AND is OCEANFRONT!!!!

WE CAN DO SHORT TERM RENTALS OF 4 nights OR

MORE.

Property was owned by the Dorr family who

donated all of the land for Acadia Nat'l Park. It was kept

out of the Park because the family loved the special views

so much. Frederic Church painted his Sunset in Bar

Harbor in the area in front of the house. The rare 'Bar Harbor Pink

Granite' fireplaces were built using rare pink granite (unavailable

today because most is in Acadia Nat'l Park) and designed to be

the biggest and most impressive on MDI-- even dwarfing the

main chimney at Jordan Pond House in Acadia Nat'l Park!!!!!!

No funds were spared to build the fireplaces and chimney as

a 'work of art!'

YOU ARE RENTING THE PREMIER WINDWARD SIDE

OCEANFRONT ESTATE. (For about the price of 2 little

stuffy hotel rooms in Bar Harbor!!!!!)

See huge ocean liners like the QM2 and ocean going yachts

right in front of the house and 'look down on them!'

Eagles nest in the trees and soar down from the house

area to fish and then fly over Porcupine Island in Acadia.

Whales and seals are often seen from the deck of the

house-- depending on the time of year.

Deer, foxes and snowshoe rabbits are often seen in the yard.

This is the most prominent lot on the Windward side of

Mt. Desert Island--- so there are usually breezes but

the house also has central a/c-- which is unheard of in Maine.

Feel like you are in Alaska-- yet Bar Harbor and

all its excitement is a 5 minute walk to town.

The JP Morgan family would gather in the ocean area

to wait for Mr. Morgan and his 'Corsair' yacht to arrive in BH.

GW Vanderbilt's house was to the left and Pulitzer was to the

right in the Gilded Age c. 1885-1900 of Bar Harbor. The views

towards the ocean are the 'most spectacular' on all of Mt. Desert Island without exception!

The house was designed to be efficient with maximum

glass views and trapazoid windows for viewing the ocean and

wildlife (espec eagles).

Acadia National Park is at the bottom of the driveway, the

Old Farm estate in Acadia, has a beach and boat launching area. This area is great for swimming since it is protected

by the Park. 2 minute walk from the house-- next to our driveway entance. Only swim in protected

areas like Acadia Park, next to us.

We offer VIP security if needed.

YOU WILL NEVER FORGET YOUR STAY--- SO TAKE TONS

OF PHOTOS FOR SUPER MEMORIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is a NEW LISTING. $2100 discount built into pricing by

owner. NOTE: WE DO NOT SHOW OUR BOOKING DATES

ON ANY PUBLIC WEB SITE -- SEND INQUIRY FOR YOUR

DATES OF INTEREST.

We specialize in VIP rentals and can offer additional

security if requested. The estate is a full 2 acres and like

having your own 'private Acadia Park.'

Owners discount their rates to help environmental causes in the U.S. and the world.

ADDITIONAL DISCOUNTS: 5% discount for

seniors, military/vets and environmental

advocates and no verification is required--

'just tell us!' Mention DIS416 in your reservation,

please.
