About the neighbourhood
The property is located in Hulls Cove (originally Eden), an historic neighborhood within the Town of Bar Harbor, Maine.

Legendary Bar Harbor is the largest, most active, and most prominent community on Mount Desert Island, which is located on the Downeast Maine coastline.

Mount Desert Island predominantly consists of the 30,000-acre Acadia National Park, one of the most beautiful places in America. Ite recreational resources are virtually boundless.

Although not necessarily within walking distance, but plausibly within bicycle distance, the Reception Center for the 30,000-acre Acadia National Park and its 50 miles of vehicle-free crushed gravel 'carriage roads' is located within 1 mile of the subject property.

Getting around
The subject property is located on a private and posted road intended for the use of only the residents and guests of approximately a dozen or more homeowners. That private road circumnavigates the shores of a peninsula reaching into the ocean at Hulls Cove in Bar Harbor. This is the most exclusive neighborhood and most historic community in Bar Harbor.

Therefore, happily, there is absolutely no public transportation at the subject property.
