Overview

About the property

3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath with large master suite on lovely wooded lot

Centrally located on Mount Desert Island, the house is conveniently located, less than 4 miles to main entrance to Acadia National Park and a few miles more to downtown Bar Harbor. Also convenient to other hiking, biking, and boating on the quiet side of the island. We specialize in anything but a Saturday to Saturday rental. If you have ever tried to arrive or leave the island on a Saturday, you know there is a lot of traffic because everyone else is coming and going during that day. We can accommodate the Saturday to Saturday if you wish though. We give a discounted rate for a month or more and we will add a mid month cleaning at no additional charge. You are also dealing directly with the owner, not an agent. Sorry we no longer allow pets.

The house has a large kitchen, dining room, living room, and 1/2 bath downstairs with deck and outdoor table. Upstairs is a very large master bedroom suite with full bath with shower and separate tub. The suite has an attached bonus room over the garage furnished with a full-sized futon and desk. There are 2 other bedrooms on the other side of the house with another full bath/shower. One of those bedrooms has a queen-sized platform bed, the other has a twin bed, with a pullout twin bed underneath. There is a flatscreen TV in 2 of the 3 bedrooms. The washer/dryer are located upstairs.

The house is located on a private quiet road and is surrounded by trees. Relax outside on the front porch or on the back deck.

About Jo

We love the outdoors but when the daylight is done we also love our internet (movies and baseball).

Jo purchased this house in 2015

Why Jo chose Bar Harbor - Mount Desert Island

We fell in love with the area on various trips that took us by Acadia National Park. Acadia has so much to offer if you enjoy the outdoors: hiking with incredible mountain views of the ocean, biking on the carriage trails, canoeing on a lake, kayaking in the ocean, side trips to nearby islands, plus the convenience of good restaurants nearby (popovers!). You may see a deer wander down the street or a fox or a hummingbird passing by.

What makes this house unique

We chose the house for its spaciousness, wooded surroundings, great central location on the island, the convenience of good internet (cable), and the general sense of peace we got when we walked in.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

A very nice house on a quiet dead-end street close to Acadia National Park. The house has a lot of space to spread out, with a great kitchen and living area. Highly recommended.

Clean and great location

  • 5 of 5

The property is an easy drive to Acadia and all its treasures. The house was very clean and served our family of 6 well. Because it is in a secluded area, we were blown away by the number of stars we could see at night. Jo was very responsive and helpful with ideas of things to do since it was our first trip to Maine. Our only minor wish was that the icemaker worked, but that was nothing a bag of ice from the grocery store didn't solve. We would definitely recommend the home and the area for vacationing. Thanks again for a lovely stay!

Better than expected!

  • 5 of 5

We pulled up to this house barely even believing how beautiful it was! Spacious, immaculate, perfect wooded location but so close to the park and Bar Harbor, stocked full of amenities. We loved every minute of it and are hoping to plan a trip to stay here again soon!

Bar Harbor getaway

  • 5 of 5

This well-equipped spacious house is located on Dessert Island in a peaceful off- road, quiet cul-de-sac close to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. I would highly recommend this for family groups who want to explore the area and return to home-like comfort, both in and outdoors.

Woodsy Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a very ample home...clean, bright, and homey. It was equipped with every convenience. Since there were only two of us, it was way more space than we needed, but made our week away extra special with much space to spread out.

The woodsy setting was lovely, and the location near town was very convenient. It was right off a picturesque road that provided easy access to the rest of the island. We even had a visit from a deer.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Centrally located to most key spots on island including Bar Harbor, Acadia and western side of island. Spacious and clean in a quiet wooded setting.

Served five adults well with space to spare. Well-equipped with kitchen items, bed/bath linens, etc.
