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.

Rentals include: Fully equipped kitchen with breakfast table, House Linens, Wireless Internet, Flatscreen with Direct TV service, DVD player, AV computer connection, Local Phone, CD Player, Gas Grill, Indoor Games and Puzzles

No Smoking, No Pets


This was our 2nd year at the Guest House. The location could not be better, in walking distance to Bar Harbor, but secluded in the beautiful woods adjacent to Acadia. The house has every amenity you need for cooking and relaxing. The house is cozy and inviting and a great place to relax after a full day - peace and quiet. The location allows you to get your fill of hiking and sightseeing during the days and you are close enough to enjoy the shops and restaurants in town. We will come back as often as we can and have recommended it to our family and friends. Jen makes you feel right at home and offers many ideas to make the trip even better.

I chose this house based on price. It looked clean and rustic and I loved that it had walking paths to the hidden beaches and was close to Bar Harbor and Acadia. There were many pluses! Upon my arrival the house was clean and roomy, wonderful beds and sheets that were soft and warm on cold nights. Location- it was incredible to walk to those hidden coves and have them to myself! I loved it. And the deer and fox right outside were amazing. I liked Mountain Sea Properties’ friendliness, professionalism and donations to wonderful causes. There was a huge file on places to go and Jen was great to work with. I really loved my stay and will be back.

We had a great time here on our first family vacation together with our 8-month-old daughter! We appreciated the amenities provided and especially all the suggestions for food and what to see!! The books about Park Loop Rd and the carriage roads were helpful in exploring and super interesting to provide history. Thanks so much!!
