RATE Summary


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.

The views from almost every window were breathtaking. Enjoying that first cup of coffee on the deck each morning, watching the lobster boats going about their business and listening to the birds call was a slice of heaven and the perfect start to every day. We were enchanted with the wildlife that browsed right outside the kitchen windows. As a family, we enjoyed working on the many jigsaw puzzles that were provided for rainy evenings. A thoroughly delightful week and one we will long remember and cherish.

A beautiful, well maintained, classic home aptly named “Eagle Cliff”. It sits on top of a high cliff overlooking the three porcupine islands out in the bay and is just a couple of miles south of Bar Harbor. The house has views from almost every window. We saw several bald eagles and even a juvenile golden eagle while sitting on the lovely stone patio enjoying our morning coffee. Did I mention the deer? They were numerous and close by every day munching on the vegetation. We enjoyed setting up a badminton court for our kids to use (many other games are available) and the deer seemed to like it too. One of our videos shows 5 on the lawn there at one time! We rented Eagle Cliff for a week together with the Guest House which is only a few feet away down the driveway. That enabled us to have a total of 10 comfortably, parents, children and grandchildren. It was a wonderful week that will provide memories for years to come.

This was only our second stay at Eagle Cliff but walking through the door both times felt like we were coming home. The special place just wraps its arms around you. Everything is here that we would need. Your team ensures everything is ready for guests. It is so welcoming down to the personal note and gift left by Jen. It makes it that much more special. This home was a welcome refuge to come together as a family. Thank you for opening up your home to us.
