Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday home in Bar Harbor - Rising Sun Cottage
Private mansion with open-ocean views, shore ledges and a cobblestone beach. Rising Sun accommodates parties up to 12 people. Emphasis is deliberate as the owners have created an environment rich in views, light, color, enjoyment and comfort, cooking, dining, dogs and yes, even work.
Find your 320 feet of private shorefront, add over three acres of wooded land to this stunning house and you will wish you had booked a month here. Rising Sun has views of the rising sun on all of its three levels and from every bedroom.
Entering on the middle level, the foyer is amazing. Simple lines and sweeping color statements seamlessly usher your senses into a world of comfort. On this level is a king bedroom with a full bathroom, spacious great room (living and dining area) and the cook's ideal dream kitchen. A half bathroom is off the foyer on the first floor. Decks overlook the ocean.
On the top floor is the master bedroom suite, with a king bed, lofty star-view skylight, and a private bathroom with whirlpool tub, an 8 foot by 4 foot shower room with double showerheads, toilet and bidet, and ocean views. Also on this floor is a queen bedroom, and a bedroom with three twin beds. The queen and twins rooms share a bathroom with tub and shower and ocean views. Large shared sitting area with ocean views and french doors with privacy screens, as well if desired.
On the lowest level, the ground floor, which is wheel-chair accessible, the family room can be used for dining, too. Flanking this room on one end is a yoga-bedroom with a queen and a private stone patio accessed by its own door. On this level is a full bathroom with shower. At the other end of this level is a queen bedroom through which is a separate pet room that also has a dog or human shower.
We know you may need to work while on holiday. Rising Sun facilitates productivity in every room. State-of-the-art home theater on the ground floor. Surround sound, and the best video (streamed from high-speed internet, sourced from DVDs, or cable television provided by Time Warner including sports, movies, and more). All rooms on the first floor have speakers, with input to them controlled and switchable from the central control room. The ground floor family room has the theater surround sound set-up, which can be used for music as well. The second floor master suite has its own high fidelity music set-up. Every room (except bathrooms) is connected to the house-wide high speed wired network, and has two Cat 5 network outlets into which you can plug your computer (or other audio/visual or electronic devices that benefit from high-speed, dependable internet wired network). In addition there is high-speed WiFi supported by the central modem.
Summer House Cottage Rentals loves cooks and we love food. Rising Sun is set to fully empower guests in luxury and comfort. Her kitchen is its own art form. The owners are in the food business in New York -- Bellavista Market -- offering Only The Best, At Its Best. The kitchen, pantry, dining areas and food service at Rising Sun have been designed to reflect and showcase this business. Upon arrival, you will find a pantry fully stocked. Prior to arrival, you may order (free of charge, from the Rising Sun website) whatever basic perishables you would like to have for your first breakfast,such as milk, eggs, bread, butter, juice, bacon. These will be waiting for you.
Kitchen can become Kosher with advance request.
For July and August guests, Monday night of each week of your vacation, a chef will prepare and serve you a seven course dinner, including cocktails and wine. This a gift to you.
Dog lovers unite in praise for the way Rising Sun is so fully welcoming to canine family members. Truly beyond dog-friendly. Before you arrive, the house will be prepped with attractive protective covers on couches, easy chairs and beds. A secure, comfortable dog room is supplied in which to leave your dogs when you go out. Pooches may enjoy dog beds, the chairs and couches, the sunny rugs, and the beds. There are separate bed linens for families with dogs, so if they are used to sleeping with you at home, Rising Sun is your home away from home. There is no pet fee but renters will have to pay for any dog-related damage.
Just minutes to Acadia National Park, for hiking, biking, swimming, walking, beaching enjoying all the nature this National gem has to offer.
