House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 9)
About Janice Woychik
We have lived in this area for almost 9 years and custom built this home. We plan to come back to this area in retirement. I entertained large parties in this house and raised my son here.
Janice Woychik purchased this House in 2005
Why Janice Woychik chose Bar Harbor
My husband was recruited to work at the Jackson Laboratory. He loves to kayak and sail and a home on the water was our dream. I enjoy hiking.
What makes this House unique
I love to walk into Salisbury Cove and post a letter at its tiny post office. I pick blackberries and blueberries on my property and watch deer and eagle from the house. An evening kayak is relaxing when you can watch the sun turn the sky orange and purple. During the July 4th festivities, I just take the bus in and don't worry about finding a parking space. Teens love the freedom of taking the bus all over the island.

Lovely home away from home
This lovely house on the water was the perfect place for our group of 3 couples. It is near enough to Bar Harbor for convenience but in a secluded spot on the bay a few miles away. The house itself has great light and a splendid view of the bay and included are ample supplies of necessities for the bathrooms and kitchen. It was the perfect home base for our exploration of MDI.
Wonderful Family vacation
The online pictures do not do this property justice. It is super nice and larger than the pictures show. Everything was very well stocked, extra towels, toilet paper and paper towels. Kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals for our family on 9. We all enjoyed the kayaks and gather mussels at low tide for one evening meal. Location was great, everyone had a great time.
A Perfect Maine Vacation!
Our family of four had a wonderful time at this property. The house is clean and spacious with plenty of room to spread out, and is located in a perfect location. The house could easily accommodate six to eight people without anyone tripping over each other. With no neighbors in sight you have all the privacy you want, and yet are just minutes from Acadia National Park and downtown Bar Harbor. We enjoyed our mornings drinking coffee on the porch overlooking the water, then would kayak a while right off the back yard with the kayaks provided. The house comes with all the amenities you would want and was very clean. Best of all, Janice, our host, was amazing at communicating with us before and during our trip, providing details about the house, local restaurants, and things to do. We followed her advice about where to eat and what to do and we were not let down. I really can't say enough about how helpful she was. I highly recommend this property to anyone looking to visit the Bar Harbor area!
Magnificent Maine Oceanfront House
This house is amazing. I have rented a lot of VRBO houses and this might the best ever. The location was perfect for relaxing and quality family time. We used the house as a home base to spend time hiking in Acadia National Forest and time in Bar Harbor. After busy days it was so nice to return to this lake house. We cooked in every night for dinner using the grill and the fully stocked kitchen including preparing a lobster dinner. The waterfront provided for great views, kayaking and exploring for shells. Thanks again Janice for sharing your little slice of heaven with us. So many memories I am tearing up just thinking about them!
Glad you liked it. By the way we are on the ocean not a lake!

Beautiful, spotless home with excellent view and perfect location. Nature and serenity abound.
Large, private, comfortable, spotless modern home. Perfect location for Bar Harbor scene and Acadia visits. Well stocked kitchen. Perfectly kept grounds with blueberries and blackberries picked for breakfast. Mussels harvested on beach property for dinner. Kayaks provided numerous fun outings on the bay waterfront. Owner, Janice, provided excellent vacation tips in advance to help with planning, and she was a pleasure to deal with.
Acadia National Park is a marvelous place for family fun. There are graded hikes and bike riding on carriage roads, swimming in lakes, horse-drawn carriage rides and ranger programs. Educational activities abound with scientific facilities giving public tours, small museums and historical sites. Gourmet restaurants, live music and theater are available as well as historic golf courses, tennis courts, gardens, day spas, sailing and whale watching. Two hours from the house is a crossing to Canada, the 'English' area, and 5 hours north is Quebec.
