Your Accommodations: Rising Sun and Sound of The Sea
My husband and I were lucky beyond words when we purchased the land for our two new homes, all the way back in 1983! This land is as spectacular as any you'll find. It is our mini Acadia National Park landscape, as private as it is beautiful!
For years, before we could build, we spent our summer vacations sitting on the rocks, reading, climbing, playing with the kids and the dogs, and always cooled by the incredible sea breezes.
Often we saw eagles, osprey, and many other birds as well as seals. This land is a birder's paradise. Of course, we hiked the trails of Acadia and meandered through the funky little town of Bar Harbor. I am thrilled that through this retreat, we can share these houses that we built with love and creativity.
Rising Sun Cottage is a 5,400 square foot home with a stunning elevated view of the ocean and complete access to our private shoreline.
Sound of the Sea is a 3,500 square foot home directly on the water's edge! Every room has a panoramic view of Frenchman's bay and the open ocean!
Both homes offer complete access to our private waterfront where you'll find bold, rocky ledges extending out into Frenchman’s Bay, with views unmatched by any other summer rental home on Mount Desert Island!
But best of all, there is easy access to spectacular rocky ledges and the ocean. We have tidal pools with mussels, anemones and all sorts of aquatic life, a miniature Thunder Hole and 330 feet of totally private shorefront including a cobblestone beach.
When we gather for meals, we do so in our spacious living room, enjoying each other and the gourmet meals cooked by our private chef.
Our meeting room is equally spacious and overlooks my main wildflower garden and the ocean beyond!
