GW Vanderbilt to the left (Biltmore owner in N.C.) and Pulitzer "Tower of Silence" to the right. Modern style with famous Bar Harbor Pink Granite fireplaces soaring into the Great Room ceiling. Huge guest suite on first floor with full bath and Queen and roll-away Twin and private living room. Two bedrooms main floor with Doubles and Master on third floor with ocean view and full bath and private staircase and King.. The fireplaces are built of very rare "Bar Harbor Pink Granite" which is no longer available-- since it is mostly in Acadia National Park and protected. The fireplace in the Great Room dwarfs even the spectacular BH pink granite fireplace in Jordan Pond House in Acadia National Park. Chef's kitchen open to Great Room so "chef" (usually the lady of the house) can socialize with guests and not feel locked-away in a remote kitchen with no view of the ocean. Feel like you are in Alaska-- yet only a five minute walk to BH and a 2 minute walk to Acadia Park beach and boat launch area on Old Farm Road. This is one of the safest places to swim on MDI since the Park protects it. Never swim in the open ocean on MDI due to the strong currents.

In the Gilded Age parties would last for days and move from one cottage to the next as the Champagne was depleted-- our site was
"the epicenter party site for the blue bloods and great industrialists and their "friends." Re-live this "carefree" experience!!!
The house was built recently, so there is no lead paint, asbestos, mold or other allergens to spoil your Bar Harbor experience.
We also offer central air conditioning (unheard of in cottages on MDI) with filtration and heat via a central heat pump system.
Our cottage was built to "green standards" and is built for your comfort and view. No fossil fuels are used whatsoever!
We use an environmentally friendly heat pump which is also central a/c (almost unheard of in Windward side cottages).
We are about a mile south of Bar Harbor CBD which is where the windward side of MDI starts.
The town is away from the sea breezes to the North and can get quite warm--- so always book "windward" cottages (fewer insects too!)-- that's
where the big Gilded Age cottages were built (the eastern side of MDI) WE DO NOT SHOW BOOKINGS ON A PUBLIC CALENDAR DUE TO
