Holiday Rental House
This upscale home near Acadia National Park offers breathtaking ocean views in a tranquil location. Perfect for nature lovers, the house has its own walking trails that lead through the woods to a private cove. Airy and bright, most of the rooms have ocean views, and are decorated with original antiques, books, art and textiles. The layout is ideal for multi-generations and couples traveling together, with a master bedroom and den upstairs, and a private twin suite downstairs with its own bath and sitting area. The large wraparound deck, furnished with Adirondack chairs, is the ideal spot to watch the dramatic sunsets over Blue Hill Bay. The central location on Mount Desert Island makes it a quick trip to the lively village of Bar Harbor as well as the 'quiet side' of Southwest Harbor.

Where do I start? Treetops is a place to remember. It's location is extremely accessible to the small wonderful towns in the surrounding area. But the view, which is seen from almost every room in the house, would make any traveler want to stay indefinitely....More

About the neighbourhood
Within a short drive of our house, you will find mountains to climb, museums to visit, cruises to take and boats and bicycles to rent. There are canoes and kayak tours. The carriage roads in Acadia National Park offer walks along ponds and lakes. Swimming is great at Echo Lake Beach toward Southwest Harbor. There are restaurants of all kinds and just over the bridge toward Trenton is a lobster pound restaurant where you can order ahead and bring the “steamed-to-perfection in seaweed” lobster back to the house to eat. You can also eat it there. Of course a drive up Cadillac Mountain and along Ocean Drive is a must!
Getting around
Driving and Parking within Acadia National Park requires a vehicle permit – these are available by the week and by the day. Passes can be purchased at Park Headquarters in Hulls Cove or at the entrance station near Sand Beach, or online. The Island Explorer is a free bus that travels around Mt. Desert Island. Bikes can be rented in either Bar Harbor or Southwest Harbor. Rentals can be done by the day or multi-days (with a bike rack for your car).
