    Property description
    Bar Harbor
    Rental Home – 
    7 Bedrooms, 7 Bathrooms, Sleeps 14
    Conveniently located on Route 3 in beautiful Hulls Cove just a half mile from the Acadia National Park visitors center and the beginning of the park loop road. Bar Harbor is just 3 miles away and can be reached via the convenient free shuttle bus system if one wished to leave the car behind.
    The house dates back to the 1880's. It was a successful bed & breakfast for 14 years before we decided to convert it to a weekly rental in 2007. It has retained much of its B&B; ambiance. Large groups of family and/or friends enjoy staying all together in one house where they can sit on the porch, cook and share meals but also enjoy the convenience and privacy of private ensuite bathrooms for each of the 7 bedrooms.
    The kitchen is fairly large. It has a dining table for 4...

    Additional Location Information
    The main attraction of Mt. Desert Island is its tremendous beauty. Acadia National Park has many small mountains that boast beautiful ocean views from the summits after relatively short hikes. The trail system in the park is extensive. Cadillac Mountain is accessible by car and often has stunning sunrises and sunsets. There is even a horse-drawn carriage trip up Parkman Mt. Swimming is available at Echo Lake and for the hardy at beautiful Sand Beach. The park loop road offers incredible scenery including Thunder Hole. Mountain biking is fantastic on the park carriage roads with rentals available in Bar Harbor. Consider visiting during the beautiful fall months to enjoy the lovely changing foliage..
    The house is located on Rt 3 so there are traffic issues you should be aware of . The setting is kind of half village half country but with a busy road running by. There are ocean views from the property although they are more obstructed by foliage then was the case a few years ago. Best...

Our extended family stayed here this summer and loved it. We had adults, teenagers and toddlers and this worked for all of us. I wouldn't call this place fancy by any means, but it was large, comfortable and we loved that each room had its own bathroom. The kitchen was very well appointed, and we loved sitting at the big... more

We recently enjoyed a fantastic stay at Twin Gables in Hulls Cove, Maine, a five minute drive from downtown Bar Harbor. To say it was perfect is an understatement! The house was in a great location, clean, comfortable and huge. There were 9 adults that stayed in the house, among them my 80 year old mother who enjoyed the first... more

We traveled with a group of friends and this house could accomodate us all. It is a spacious home, well situated near Acadia National Park. The beds were comfortable and each room had a bath which was perfect for our group. The kitchen was well furnished and there was a gas grill for our use. There were plenty of parking... more
