Fern Way Detailed Information
Built in 2004, the Fern Way home is a delightful blend of modern convenience and rustic style. Designed by a local architect to integrate with the beautiful natural setting of Mount Desert Island, at every turn Fern Way celebrates the natural world.
A gently curving driveway through the woods leads to the quiet 4.5 acres that surrounds Fern Way. The attractive exterior is Adirondack style live edge siding, complemented by cedar posts supporting an entry porch overlooking the large lawn. Entering the house, two French doors lead you into a large open floor plan allowing for ease and comfort of a large group or family gathering.
Classic post and beam details include a stunning custom banister in maple and a soaring two story stonewall that defines the sunny living area. The large kitchen is ideal for preparing family meals with ample counter space, appliances and gadgets. A screened porch with dining table and futon couch is the perfect spot to start your day with coffee and end it with sunsets through the trees. The basement includes a home gym with top of the line Bowflex weight machine, Sole elliptical trainer, yoga mat and props, exercise bike and Nordic ski machine.
The large master bedroom with a king bed is located upstairs as well as a bedroom with a double bed, a bedroom with two twin beds, and a full bathroom complete with a two-person jetted tub to helps ease tired muscles after a fun filled day exploring Acadia. Downstairs is a bedroom with a double bed, a bathroom with shower, and the screened porch with a new futon, which can be used as an extra bedroom or by those wishing to sleep in the fresh air of the Maine woods.
Located in the heart of Mount Desert Island, Fern Way is no more than 10 minutes from all attractions including the secluded hidden treasures on the "quiet side" of Acadia National Park. From Bar Harbor and the breathtaking Park Loop Road to Bass Harbor and its famous lighthouse, you'll spend more time exploring the wonders of this lovely island and less time getting there. Best of all, it is a short 5 minute walk to Long Pond, the largest lake on the island where there is a picnic area, swimming beach, and canoe/kayak rental. Nearby are several other treasures of Mount Desert Island including the Beech Mt. hiking area, Beech Hill organic farm stand, and the village of Somesville and Somes Harbor where you can access the free island-wide shuttle bus.
