Welcome to Our Homes: Rising Sun and Sound of the Sea
In Bar Harbor, Maine, home of Acadia National Park, we designed our two recently built vacation homes so that each room has panoramic ocean and sunrise views.
Rising Sun is a 5,400 square foot home that sleeps twelve, with a stunning elevated view of the ocean and complete access to our private shoreline.
Sound of the Sea Cottage 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.
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… 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.
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 or Sound of the Sea 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.
