Welcome to Rising Sun Cottage
In Bar Harbor, Maine, home of Acadia National Park, we designed our new 5400 square foot home to sleep twelve. Each room has panoramic ocean and sunrise views.
Bold, rocky ledges extending out into Frenchman’s Bay, with views unmatched by any other summer rental home on Mount Desert Island… dip your toes in the water or, if you’re a polar bear, swim! 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.
Ten minute walk and you’re in Acadia… Twenty minute walk to the center of Bar Harbor (the most dog-friendly town in America)… Twenty minute bike ride to Sand Beach.
Like the rising sun, the walls, ceilings and floors of the entire house radiate light and color. During the night, the moonlight sparkles on the water, and from most of the beds, a blanket of stars fills the heart with wonder. Sweet Dreams…
For the occasional times when Mount Desert Island experiences really hot weather, you'll love our central air conditioning. During cool days or nights of any season, our new hot tub, nestled in a cozy rock outcropping with views of Frenchman's Bay, offers yet another way to enjoy the acadian surroundings.
But best of all, there is easy access to spectacular rocky ledges and the ocean. So walking or sitting on our rocks delights the senses at both high and low tide, in all seasons and weather. The silver linings of any “bad” weather are the crashing waves, the flying spray and the melodic sounds of the sea.
We’re at the very end of a very private road; if privacy and security are important to you and your family, you’ll surely want to consider Rising Sun for your vacations throughout the year.
By auto, eight hours from Manhattan; five hours from Boston; one hour from Bangor Airport; 25 minutes from Bar Harbor Airport.
Enjoy exploring Rising Sun Cottage. We hope our home will be your home this summer and for many summers to come.
