This exquisite log home is unlike anything else in Bar Harbor. Newly built with every attention to detail and décor, it was designed to be a perfect retreat for guests with the most discriminating tastes. When you walk in you are met with a breathtaking living room and dining area with hardwood floors, a large stone fireplace, down sofa, wrought-iron chandeliers and rustic handcrafted coffee and dining tables. A two story wall of windows above the fireplace overlooks Cadillac mountain and the peaceful secluded woods surrounding the house. Double French doors open onto a wrap around deck perfect for entertaining large groups with a gas grill and outdoor seating. Inside, the beautiful brand new kitchen is furnished with every amenity including a dishwasher, microwave, gas stove, double sink with stainless steel fixtures, and an island that is open to the living room making it a perfect place to re-connect with family and friends. Walk upstairs to the alcove loft that overlooks the living area for a quiet retreat, or continue on to the master bedroom complete with a walk in closet and private balcony. The attached master bathroom has a Jacuzzi tub, double granite sinks, and stainless fixtures. The bed has a queen sized luxury superior comfort pillow top mattress. The remaining four bedrooms are equally as comfortable with the same queen sized mattresses, “log” beds, dressers, and ample closets. On the lower level is a large game room with a brand new 8 foot pool table and a foosball table, additional double French doors and a third full bath. Finally, one of the best attractions about this home is its location. The house is 3 ½ miles from the enchanting Village of Bar Harbor, Mt. Desert Island’s artistic, culinary, and social center. Located on the shores of Frenchman’s Bay, it offers the charm of a small New England fishing village with all the attractions of a major resort including restaurants, shopping, and a lively nightlife. The house also borders Acadia National Park, and is less than a mile from the Atlantic Ocean. Nearby are entrances to some of the best hiking trails in the country, as well as a huge variety of outdoor activities including canoeing, kayaking, rock climbing, deep sea fishing, sailing, biking, and much more. Also close by is the popular Sand Beach, Thunder Hole, and Cadillac Mountain, the most beautiful place to watch the sun rise in the country. Keywords: Newly-Built Home
Shared the following with owner (Ken) the day after we left; never rec'd a response and now it's been 2 1/2 weeks w/ no deposit rec'd. The things we really enjoyed: * The beds were very comfortable, linens clean and crisp * The location was perfect, really close to everything - the privacy of the location was perfect. * Spacious rooms, great layout with plenty of room for our 8 sisters! * a bathroom on every floor was very much appreciated * The deck was very nice, plenty of seats (mesh ones were way better than ones with cushions, was raining when we arrived and it took a few days for cushions to dry out). * Pool table and foosball table was fun. * Fire pit was beautiful, just didn't get a chance to use it. * Heavy duty washer and dryer was nice. * Appreciated the wifi service. Some items that require attention. * The towels - very sparse, not in the best shape. (could have used more for 8 people). * The gas grill was very dirty. looked like it had not been cleaned in quite some time. * Gas grill "starter button" not working - found lighter in kitchen drawer so we got it to work; (suggested he update instructions.) * Flowers in hanging baskets in bad shape, we watered several times, but they need to be trimmed. - it may be unreasonable to expect guests to take care of plants. * The ice maker/ water dispenser in refrigerator is not working. expect you know about this as there were ice cube trays so had what we needed, but for the price ice machine should work. * Driveway needs reflector. very hard to see entrance, especially at night, and when when raining. suggest you place one on both sides of the telephone pole. * The screen door in master bedroom does not slide easily (off track). * Drawer in master closet does not work - middle right * The light switches in kitchen don't work, next to stove on right, light overhead of sink doesn't work. It would be helpful to label those light switches. :-) * Fireplace, left hand hand side felt warm to touch, but we couldn't find any controls so not sure why. Also didn't find any instructions on fireplace. Didn't need, but a bit concerning. * Light switch plate by front door also felt warm when outside light was on for extended period. * Fans - given there is no A/C, and it was very hot and muggy.. the house could use more fans and higher quality fans. Really need one in every bedroom. plus the fan in the dining room was ineffectual. * Deposit not returned in timely fashion.
