About the property

6 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12

''''La Maisonette'', circa 1886, is a beautiful 3,400 square foot, 6 bedroom home in downtown Bar Harbor nestled within Bar Harbor?s national historic district with a view of Frenchman's Bay and a beautiful 1/2 acre back yard.

Located on West Street, you are a short stroll to restaurants, shops, bike and kayaking rentals in the downtown area. Acadia National Park is just minutes away by car or rent a bike and walk to the shuttle in downtown Bar Harbor which will take you into the park to spend a day riding the Carriage Trail.

At low tide, walk around the corner and enjoy the unique experience of crossing a sand bar to Bar Island or simply walk along the sand bar collecting shells and photographing the spectacular views.

With its shingle style architecture, La Maisonette offers charm and character with high ceilings, detailed woodwork, a staircase tower, a solarium and fireplaces.

La Maisonette is fully furnished and offers a wrap around enclosed porch that provides a brief view of the ocean, 6 bedrooms that sleep 12, 3 full and one partial bathroom, WiFi, and HD TV, we believe it offers everything you need to enjoy a wonderful Bar Harbor vacation.

Why Angelique Bennett chose Bar Harbor

We began coming to Bar Harbor when our first child was born. We fell in love with the town and Acadia National Park. We now have four children and are thrilled to own this beautiful home so they can grow up visiting Bar Harbor

Great house for a reunion

  • 5 of 5

Five couples stayed at this house to attend a wedding and, afterwards, to enjoy the area. The location is within walking distance of everything in Bar Harbor. The house has plenty of space for cooking, dining, evening conversation, and spreading out when privacy was needed. Built in 1886 and one of the oldest homes in Bar Harbor, this home has been well-cared-for. The bedrooms are spacious and well-appointed. The kitchen has been fully renovated and the windows replaced (important on a couple of windy nights). Although dated, the bathrooms worked fine. Angelique, the owner, was very responsive and helpful, as were the housekeeper and property manager. I would definitely consider staying at La Maisonette again.

Great Time in Bar Harbor

  • 5 of 5

Thank you very much for the use of your home. The kitchen was well stocked with not only all the amenities, but two refrigerators. The laundry area was also helpful. The house had a high chair and pak and play for our little one.

A perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Perfect house, perfect location to restaurants, shops, a half block from the sand bar, and a perfect distance to Acadia. We came with kids and extended family and loved the many communal spaces in the house and the many doors that could be closed on the first floor to keep the kids from waking up their grandparents. The chefs in our family loved the kitchen!

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house. Location was perfect for everyone. Our family of 11 totally enjoyed the trip to Bar Harbor because of this house! Located close to all the restaurants and attractions we visited we never had to use a car. Beds were comfortable and we had enough bathrooms to accommodate everyone. Washers and dryers were perfectly located for clean towels daily.

I would highly recommend this house for anyone who loves to walk the shore and enjoy a week away from driving.

I would definitely recommend La Maisonette!!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't imagine a better location and house! The house is so beautiful, clean and well equipped for a large group; plenty of space for gathering both inside and out, large well equipped kitchen with 2 refrigerators, 2 washers and dryers. And, so much to do with in walking and biking distance; the Bar, the ocean, Acadia National park, shopping, fantastic restaurants. And even more to do with in a short car ride including fabulous antiquing! I would definitely recommend La Maisonette to anyone looking for a great place to have an unforgettable experience!
