Additional Location Information
Artistâ€™s Haven is about half way down a little travelled road that ends with a turn around at a heath of pine, spruce, and fir trees. As you walk up the hill down the road you can see the summit of Cadillac Mountain and many birds and wildlife along the way. There are old over-grown logging roads you can meander down and pick blueberries in late July through August. Pine Heath Road is in Town Hill, a village of Bar Harbor. Town Hill has an old-fashion country store featuring all natural products, a bistro specializing in unique gourmet food, a wine and cheese shop, an artists gallery, bank, firehouse, baseball field and childrenâ€™s playground, a playhouse theater, local brewery/barbecue eatery, and an organic vegetable farm with stand.
The town of Bar Harbor is only 20 minutes away from Artistâ€™s Haven, so is the official entrance to Acadia National Park where you can gather all the information you need about what is scheduled for the particular time of your vacation stay.
Parking at Artistâ€™s Haven and in the village of Town Hill is never a problem. At the house there is room for 3 vehicles in the driveway. The island offers a free public bus service that can accommodate bikes too. The local stop for the Island Explorer is just down the road from the house.

What Past Guests Are Saying
Perfect House and Location
We stayed at artist's Haven for a week and would recommend it to anyone visiting the Bar Harbor area. The house was beautiful, fully furnished with everything we needed. Location was excellent, 10-15 minutes from the acadia National Park Visitor's Center and 15-20 from the downtown area. House is decorated beautifully by Dayelle and it proved to be the perfect place to return to after each day's activities. A great week!

home away from home
Artist's Haven was a very nicely appointed comfortable home. It had everything we needed, and lots of things to do nearby. Our hostess was very engaging, and had a very comprehensive knowledge of the area. She was always able to point us in the right direction when asked. We had a very enjoyable week.
Truly a artist's haven nestled in the woods
This is a beautiful, comfortable home in harmony with its wooded surroundings. Private and secluded, yet centrally located so that all the attractions of the island are within easy drive. We truly enjoyed our stay at the artist's haven.
