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.

Very nice home in a great location

  • 4 of 5

The house and grounds are peaceful, beautiful and centrally located. You are just a 15 minute drive to Bar Harbor and it's attractions including a Hanniford grocery store. The kitchen is well equipped and roomy. We never did figure out how to work the TV in the living room. Modern technology is not very senior friendly. We really did not miss it. The porch was ideal for Happy hour and for relaxing after dinner. The master bedroom was very comfortable. The bedding in one of the guest bedrooms was practically on the floor and not comfortable.

Wonderful house, perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

It was a pleasure to stay in this wonderful house. The house is so clean and well decorated. It has everything you need in the kitchen if you plan to cook. It has books and table games. It is also so close to Acadia NP and downtown Bar Harbor. Just a perfect place to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

Great Place - close to town

  • 5 of 5

My parents, wife and I stayed here while visiting my brother and his fiance. Great house, well stocked in the kitchen. All the beds were comfortable. Can definitely hold more people than our small group. The owner is very nice and helpful for any questions we had. I would stay here again if ever visiting Bar Harbor.
