Our beautifully restored barn is centrally located on Mt. Desert Island, approximately 15 minutes from the village of Bar Harbor and approximately 10 minutes from the entrance to Acadia National Park via an old farm road, aptly named 'The Crooked Road'.
The 160 year-old barn once served as the livery stable for Town Hill, a one-time farming community which is in the township of Bar Harbor. We've converted the stable into two beautifully appointed apartments -- there's no other place quite like this on Mt. Desert. Soaring ceilings, hand hewn beams, cozy bedrooms, new kitchen and baths, loft space for tv and reading. We call this half of the barn 'The South Barn'. It's well-appointed and comfortable....and the baths and kitchen are brand new. We've had great reviews on our strong Wifi connectivity.
Because we're at the intersection of three Island roads, our location is great for exploring the Island. Acadia NP, Bar Harbor, Southwest Harbor and the 'Quiet Side' of MDI are all close by. Be prepared for summer traffic! Our once-quiet farm road is now a busy thorough-fare that runs from one end of the island to the other.
An Island bus service, supported by L.L. Bean, stops just across the road and provides free service into Bar Harbor and throughout the national park.
Bangor International Airport is 45 miles away -- approximately an hour's drive. The regional airport, Hancock County/Bar Harbor, is approximately 2 miles from our house and barn., public transport.
