If you desire coastal Maine living at its finest, you won’t do better than “Bear Creek,”a beautifully classic Bar Harbor, shingle style home with a contemporary twist, boldly perched on the granite shores of Frenchman Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.  Entering the almost 16-acre property along a long, winding driveway, through a forest of old and new growth threes and abundant mosses and lichens, guests are delivered from the hustle and bustle of the village of Bar Harbor, only minutes away, to more oceanfront privacy and tranquility than one could wish for.  “Bear Creek” has spectacular 180-degree views of Egg Rock Light, Thrumcap Island, Schoodic Peninsula and the ever-present open ocean beyond.  Coupled with its immediate proximity to the 47,000+ acres of Acadia National Park and its mountains, lakes and hundreds of miles of hiking and biking trails to explore, and all of the other activities and wonderful restaurants, cafes and boutique shopping that Mount Desert Island and the village of Bar Harbor itself are known for, “Bear Creek” provides all that is desired in an optimally located oceanfront retreat.  You’ll also enjoy year-around sunrises, watching boats and ocean life come and go (a whale if you’re lucky), and the companionship of a picturesque rock coastline, constantly changing ocean and frequently crashing surf.

The custom built, 3-level, 5-bed, 5-bath home incorporates large, comfortable, light-filled living and entertaining spaces with cathedral ceilings, including a very large living room with wood-burning stone fireplace and a resident Moose (you’ll understand when you see him), a generous professional kitchen and dining area with slate counters and an additional wood-burning stone fireplace, a library/office facing the ocean for those requiring a quiet place to work/read, a large first floor bedroom (with king bed) and bathroom, two matching “master” suites on the second floor, each with its own king bed, additional stone fireplace and private bathroom, and a third floor with two more spacious bedrooms (each having two queen beds) and bathrooms, plus a fun, central game room with ping pong table.  A wrap-around, cedar deck and porch (with hot tub and outdoor grill) and a picnic table only steps from the rocky shoreline provide generous outdoor living spaces for entertaining, recovering from your lobster dinner, or just relaxing and looking out to sea as time passes you by.

Pricing is based on a two week minimum stay.  When available single weeks may be considered with an additional fee.

Property Testimonials

  1. Guests from VA

    This is a MAGICAL place. What an incredible setting for enjoying all that Mount Desert Island has to offer. From the incredible stargazing at night, and beautiful sunrises in the morning, to warming up in front of a fire on a rainy day, every moment we spent here felt like a small bit of paradise.

  2. Guests from South Korea

    We, our children, and our grandparents each found a corner of the house to explore and settle in. The furnishings are very tasteful, the layout is spacious and accommodating and the views, of course, are stunning!
