What Jen Loves About The Guest House
Opening the front door, you are greeted by a charming living room with futon couch, antique writing desk and entertainment center. The kitchen, with ample counter space and appliances, has a separate eating area bathed in sunlight from the French doors that lead to the outside patio, where there is a picnic table and gas grill. The master bedroom has a new double bed, and the second bedroom has two new twin beds. The inside of this house is new and fresh, yet retains glimpses of its history with selected antiques.
The location of this house is perfect. At the end of a small private road through Acadia National Park, the Guest House 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 2 miles away where you can drive or bike the famous Park Loop Road and all its attractions.
One of the Park's 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 where there is 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.
