Twin Gables House

Conveniently located on Route 3 in beautiful Hulls Cove just a half mile from the Acadia National Park visitors center and the beginning of the park loop road. Bar Harbor is just 3 miles away and can be reached via the convenient free shuttle bus system if one wished to leave the car behind.

The house dates back to the 1880's. It was a successful bed & breakfast for 14 years before we decided to convert it to a weekly rental in 2007. It has retained much of its B&B; ambiance. Large groups of family and/or friends enjoy staying all together in one house where they can sit on the porch, cook and share meals but also enjoy the convenience ...Read more

Additional Location Information

The main attraction of Mt. Desert Island is its tremendous beauty. Acadia National Park has many small mountains that boast beautiful ocean views from the summits after relatively short hikes. The trail system in the park is extensive. Cadillac Mountain is accessible by car and often has stunning sunrises and sunsets. There is even a horse-drawn carriage trip up Parkman Mt. Swimming is available at Echo Lake and for the hardy at beautiful Sand Beach. The park loop road offers incredible scenery including Thunder Hole. Mountain biking is fantastic on the park carriage roads with rentals available in Bar Harbor. Consider visiting during the beautiful fall months to enjoy the lovely changing foliage..
The house is located on Rt 3 so there are traffic issues you should be aware of . The setting is kind of half village half country but with a busy road running by. There are ocean views from the property although they are more obstructed by foliage then was the case a few years ago. Best views of the ocean are from some of the bedrooms on the second floor. Getting into the park is extremely convenient - it just takes a minute and you can completely avoid traffic in downtown Bar Harbor as you got out for your park adventures. The shuttle bus can be used to get to or from Bar Harbor (every half hour in the summer months). Very handy for people that don't want to all be on the same schedule.
