About the neighbourhood
My home is located in Bar Harbor about 10 minutes out of the center of town away from the congestion in a quiet wooded neighborhood minutes from area attractions. There is a beautiful path 150 ft from my home to access a large pebble beach at low tide and down the street from a preserve that takes you to the water. Enjoy, Gourmet dining, Brewery, Bakery, Bank, Playground, Country store with wine, pizza, natural foods and a great Ice cream stand minutes from the house. You can drive into town or leave your car at the community center near the country store and hop onto the Free ecotour bus.
