Overview

About the property

Lovely 3 BR 2 BA Cape Style Home Could accomodate up to 8

The Eden House is conveniently located near the head of Mt Desert Island in the Bar Harbor village of Town Hill (about 6 miles from downtown Bar Harbor). We are the property owner and you can still deal directly with us. In addition to easy access to all of the island towns (Bar Harbor, Mt Desert, Southwest Harbor and Tremont) it's an easy drive to Ellsworth and only 5 minutes to the Hancock County Airport. Also, the free Island Explorer Bus will stop at an intersection about 100 yards from the Eden House. The bus will take you (and your bike, dog, etc.) into Bar Harbor and from there you can connect to most areas of the island including Acadia National Park. You could actually spend the whole week here and never use your car!!

The Eden House is owned and managed locally - we live right next door. You will not be dealing with a rental agent or absentee owner.

Amenities: : TV (cable), VCR, DVD, high speed wireless internet, microwave, gas grill, all cooking utensils, washer & dryer, deck w/table & chairs, towels, linens, blankets, extra pillows, spacious front & back yards, garage.

great location

  • 5 of 5

we stayed here for a week. the location is great for getting to and getting off the island. it is close to a local supermarket and 3 different "Lobster Pounds" where you can get some of the finest local seafood. the Islander shuttle runs right past the end of the driveway every half hour so you don't need to drive if you don't want to. the shuttle beats driving into town and hunting down a parking spot. the main entrance to the park is a short 10 minute drive and 20 minutes to the top of Cadillac Mountain where you get spectacular sunrises, sunsets, views of town and the ocean, and some amazing stargazing. The house itself was immaculate. It came complete with everything, including a large selection of herbs and spices for cooking, movies, DVDs and games for rainy days and a large map of the area to help you get around.
