Bar Harbor is a magical place where ocean cliffs and rocky beaches, glacier-formed lakes and valleys, mountain vistas and lush green forests capture the imagination. Located on Mount Desert Island—50 miles from Bangor International Airport—this celebrated vacation destination presents a picturesque setting filled with a rich history, diverse culture and small-town charm. Acadia National Park, recognized as one of the most visited national parks in the U.S., is nearby and offers miles of paved paths punctuated with stone-faced bridges as well as Cadillac Mountain, which is the highest point on the eastern seaboard.
A summer mecca for visitors from around the world, Bar Harbor harkens back to the Golden Age when distinguished American families like the Vanderbilts, Rockefellers and Kennedys established grand summer “cottages” throughout the area. Inspired by these iconic cottages that grace Maine’s coastline, “Eastern Watch” welcomes you to experience a vacation wonderland that many can only dream about. Perfectly positioned high on a cliff overlooking Frenchman Bay, this striking estate commands 3.68 acres with views so magnificent, they will take your breath away.
This is a trout property you thought no longer existed, with seven miles of a National Wild and Scenic River known to hold some of the finest trout water in the nation. There’s an Adirondack-style lodge built in 1929 of white ash and wormy chestnut, a Tackle House, Barn, Caretaker’s House and four cabins sited along the river. A trout pond shaded by hardwoods is fed by the river. Mineral rights are included.
It’s six miles east of Baldwin, MI, with easy access from US-31 or M-37, and it’s surrounded and protected by vast Federal forests. Just one family has owned this incredible property for nearly 70 years.
