About the property

Comfortable, spacious, and family-friendly home sleeps up to 10

Two floors that can be completely independent - perfect for an extended family!

Your jaw will drop when you come to the end of the driveway and look out over the ocean to the view of Acadia. The entire property is called Main Stay, and this house is known as 'The Barn', but don't be fooled by it's name. This building has been lovingly cared for and recently renovated, with every comfort in mind. Each floor has 1,000 square feet of living space.

What makes this rental so unique is the way it is configured. Each floor can be used as an entirely separate unit, because each has a full kitchen, bath, sleeping, dining, and living area. There are three separate sleeping areas with very comfortable beds. The Barn at Mainstay can easily accommodate three couples, with two fold out sofa beds with brand new mattresses that are great for kids. The property would be ideal for two families traveling together, or for extended families. One favorite feature that brings lots of comments is the antique cast iron sink in the kitchen.

The Barn at Mainstay is within minutes of Acadia but in a peaceful secluded setting away from the crowds. There is so much to see and experience in the area. If you enjoy hiking, biking, and kayaking, this is the best place to do it. Explore the many carriage roads in the national park. Go to Wildwood Stables and take a carriage ride. Pack a picnic and find a spot along the loop road to watch the waves crash on pink granite cliffs. Drive to the top of Cadillac Mountain where the 360 degree view will leave you speechless. Drive over to Northeast Harbor, one of the most picturesque anchorages in New England. Southwest Harbor is home to some of the most prestigious yacht builders in the world. Go to Beal's Lobster Pier to eat - the only place where you can get a better lobster is at the Trenton Bridge Lobster Pound, which is only about 10 minutes from The Barn.

Take a scenic biplane ride from the Trenton Airport, where you will also see scores of Lear Jets from the rich and famous who flock to the area. Go over to the adorable funky, quaint town of Bar Harbor to shop and get a bite at one of the many restaurants, and then grab an ice cream cone and sit in the park overlooking the town pier where yachts and lobster boats sit side by side. There are art galleries, specialty shops, lots of pubs, bookstores, and so much more to explore. Take a cruise on the beautiful windjammer, Margaret Todd. Whale watching, puffin cruises, seal sightings, try your hand at lobstering - these are just a couple of the fun water activities you can enjoy. For a special occasion dinner, nothing can beat the Bar Harbor Inn, but there are so many places to go for breakfast, lunch and dinner, you won't ever run out of options.

After a busy day of outdoor activities, come back to The Barn for some quiet times sitting down by table rock with a glass of ice tea or perhaps some nice wine. If you are visiting during a time when there are cool evenings, start a fire in the chiminea. One of our favorite things to do is to put a blanket down on the grass later in the evening and watch the stars come out. If you are there in August, you will see the Persied Meteor shower. The view of the Milky Way is beyond words. Because of the clarity of the clean ocean air and the purposeful reduction of light pollution on Mt. Desert Island, the night sky is filled with stars so lovely it will remain a treasured memory forever.

A great day trip is Camden, one of the prettiest little towns along the coast. Make sure you go to the top of Mt. Battie for the full view of the harbor. Another favorite trip is Schoodic Point, which is reknowned for huge surf after ocean storms. If you go into Ellsworth, make sure to stop at Jordan's for their fried clams. Yum!

We started a ritual when our son was young of going to Pirate's Cove miniature golf on the road to the park at least once every visit during the season. He's 19 and we are still going! Lots of fun and a great family activity.

It's easy to stay active and busy, but I will confess, there are many times I just can't bring myself to leave the beauty and tranquility of The Barn at Mainstay. Once you experience it, I'm sure you will feel the same way. There is something so peaceful and relaxing, that I look forward to quiet days when the weather isn't the best so I can curl up with a good book and move from coffee, to tea, to wine as the day progresses. Do that at least once. It will cure what ails ya.
