About Bart Chase, Proprietor
The Chase Family has long been connected with Mount Desert Island and Hancock County, Maine. 'Mimi' Chase, the deceased matriarch of the Chase Family, and her husband Robert Woodward, 45 years ago first arrived in Maine from Florham Park, NJ to homestead and stake their roots at Green Lake in Ellsworth Maine. Eventually they purchased a summer cottage on Green Lake's shore edge where they opened their home to their three children and 7 grandchildren in the summer to learn to swim, kayak, fish, build a camp fire, hike and explore Acadia National Park. And just as importantly, to learn to relax with family and friends and to form everlasting memories. Bart, Mimi's youngest son, and his wife Ann, from Summit, NJ, are owners of ChaseHouse. They too have permanently extended their roots and enjoy time spent at their homes on Green Lake and on Mount Desert Island. Bart and Ann and their four children and two black Labrador Retrievers Bhodi and Woogie are adventurous nature loving outdoors people who enjoy extended and short stays throughout the seasons at their homes in Maine to explore the granite Atlantic coast and Acadia Park trails. On any given day the Chase Family, their friends, and invited guests are likely biking, hiking, boating, snow shoeing, cross country skiing, or simply wandering on a new uncharted adventure out and about in Acadia Park, at Green Lake, Schoodic, or elsewhere . If they are not in Acadia Park exploring, they are likely playing bocci ball at the Lompac in Bar Harbor, watching a movie at Reel Pizza, or chill-laxing on the Shore Path dangling their feet over a granite cliff overlooking Frenchman's bay, or lounging on the hammock with Cadillac Mountain in eye sight. The Chase Family is pleased to welcome guests to lodge at the ChaseHouse located in the Village of Otter Creek to spend time on the Island, explore Acadia Park and to experience the many attractions, natural delights, and scenic, relaxing beauty that the Island offers.

Great peaceful stay!
We came in for a weekend of hiking and loved this house. It is incredibly cozy with everything you need, and in a great location. We enjoyed being outside Bar Harbor (but close enough to pop in) and closer to the beautiful park! Loved the claw foot tub upstairs! Great water pressure :)
memories made in Maine
5 women from Ohio enjoyed all that Maine had to offer. We were very pleased with the home. The location ,the comfort of the house, the cleanliness was perfect. Thank you for being such a good host and we would recommend this cozy home to anyone.
Memorable experience!! Can’t wait to come back
Our stay here was 10/10. The location was very convenient and there was plenty to do in the apartment for our toddler. If we ever come back up to Acadia I would be lucky to stay here again!
Cottage Days of Old in Beautiful Acadia
Really enjoyed our stay here. The property was exceptionally clean with modern appliances. Wonderfully quaint property which was perfect for our family of 6. We were blessed with a great week of weather and felt we better related to the days of old we read about in the museums of days gone by in the cottage era. Bart was great to deal with, quick to reply to questions and honestly made the whole process of renting a "non-event" so we could enjoy our stay. Will defiantly be back!
Acadia July 2019
This was one of the best vacation rental experiences we have ever had as a family. The Chase House is optimally positioned for exploring Acadia and all of Mount Desert Island. The house is great even on rainy days of books and board games. Would recommend the Chase House highly. As our daughters said when asked what they thought of the house, “It was awesome!”
Great relaxing stay in a comfortable home
The Chase House was a great place to stay. The home was very clean, comfortable and cozy. It was easy to get to a few hikes without having to drive. It was in a quiet neighborhood and it was relaxing to get away from the crowds celebrating in Bar Harbor during the Fourth without it being too far away. We would definitely stay there again.
