What Jen Loves About Eagle Cliff
Located at the end of a small private road through Acadia National Park, Eagle Cliff is only one mile from Bar Harbor where you can access a free shuttle bus that travels around greater Mount Desert Island and through Acadia National Park. The main auto entrance to Acadia National Park is only two miles away where you can drive or bike the famous Park Loop Rd and all its attractions. There is a separate Guest House on the property that can also be rented allowing for additional occupancy and privacy.
Downstairs, the large living room, formal dining room, and kitchen, equipped for entertaining, all overlook Frenchman Bay and the Porcupine Islands. A bedroom with a double bed and private bathroom, and a powder room located near the kitchen and living room round out the ground floor.
Upstairs, the large oceanside master suite is complete with deluxe memory foam mattress, private dressing room, and private bathroom with a Jacuzzi bathtub. Another bedroom with a double bed has huge bay windows facing east allowing the occupants to watch the morning sunrise over Frenchman Bay. The third upstairs bedroom has two twins, and there is a full bathroom as well.
The grounds of the Eagle Cliff estate are just as beautiful as the inside. A stone porch overlooks the ocean with outdoor seating and a gas grill- the perfect place to spend an afternoon reading or having a Barbeque dinner. An entry porch with outdoor seating, a gazebo, gardens, and a large lawn await you.
One of the Parks newest trails allows one to literally walk from the house into the 130-mile network of hiking trails, bike to the 45 miles of Carriage Roads, or simply stroll into town for an ice cream cone. Compass Cove, a little known parcel of Acadia National Park, is just a 5-minute walk to a secluded and well-protected sand beach and tide pools. This area is a wonderful place to explore with kids or have a quiet sun-drenched beach all to yourself.
