This very special home has been a family gathering place for decades. With many recent improvements and remodel projects, it's ready for your extended family to vacation together under one roof and enjoy a spectacular location on the shore of Frenchman's Bay. About 7 miles north of the village of Bar Harbor and 5 from the Park Visitor Center in Hulls Cove, it's convenient to the attractions of Acadia National Park and Mt. Desert Island, while being extremely private. Park-like grounds feature a story-book stone overlook on the expanse of the Bay where you can welcome the summer sunrise over the water or watch the light on the distant hills color and fade in the evening twilight.

The house has three levels: on the lower floor, there is a bright king bedroom suite, with eastern views of the water (great for sunrises) with a beautiful granite fireplace; a small sitting room with daybed and patio/yard access, a full kitchen and an updated, tiled shower/tub bathroom.

The main floor has a large living room with wonderful large granite fireplace, cathedral ceiling, built-in shelves with hundreds of books, and comfortable furnishings; attached is a 'card room' with windows all around, great for family cards and games competitions; on the east is the sun porch, overlooking the ocean; a huge family kitchen, fully-equipped and featuring water views, cathedral ceiling and large island; four bedrooms of all sizes are on the main floor, including three with attached bathrooms (1 with claw-foot tub, 2 with showers); one is a large master suite with king bed, sitting/desk area and en suite bathroom with a large walk-in shower (wheelchair accessible). The remaining three bedrooms on the main level include one with a queen bed, another with two twin beds (that can make a king together), and a third with a single bed. There is an additional half bath with sink & toilet off the hallway. Finally a new laundry pair is in it's own closet in the hallway. The main floor is wheelchair accessible from an entry near the parking area.

Upstairs are large rooms, wood-paneled with gabled ceilings and two window seats, one with a queen bed and single w/trundle, the other a sitting room with TV and furniture (no bathroom on this level).

You can bring as many as 12 family members and still have plenty of room--depending on the makeup of your party (# of adults and # and ages of kids), the owners may permit up to 14 total guests ($100/ea for 13th & 14th). Pack 'n Play, high chair and child gate are provided.

Weekly Rental:Saturday-Saturday bookings only. No pets permitted, no smoking.
