Photos and Description of the Bar Harbor vacation villa rental

2 bed, 1 bath, sleeps 5

The aim and mission of the Windaway Estate is to celebrate the natural, native landscape of Mount Desert Island, and provide a YEAR ROUND peaceful, beautiful, and FUN spot for family vacations, romantic getaways, and special retreats. The Windaway Loft, part of the Windaway estate, is a perfect choice for a small family or up to 2 couples who want an oceanfront vacation in Bar Harbor, but prefer to stay just far enough away from the craziness of town. Available by itself or in conjuction with Windaway Summer House (vrbo #507910), Windaway Loft is a 2 story, apartment type dwelling. Once the attached garage of the Windaway summer house, it has very recently been lovingly renovated into a truly delightful, light filled, modern addition to the retreat like quality of the Windaway Estate. Hi Speed Wifi internet is included in the rental rate. There are 2 bedrooms, each with a brand new beds (one with a king, one with 2 twins), along with a bathroom with washer/dryer on the first floor. Linens and towels are new, high thread count and high quality. On the second floor, the open concept living/kitchen/dining area and large deck (with a grill and picnic table) offer exceptional views of the cranberry field and the ocean beyond. All appliances and furnishings are new, and tastefully coordinated. The seating is very comfortable and takes advantage of the views. Kitchenware is high quality (knives are sharp!) and is BPA and Teflon free. Enjoy having morning coffee and breakfast with the sun, and incredible sunsets and star gazing in the evening.

During the day, take a stroll on the shore to look for seashells or sea glass. Even better, bring your kayak (or rent one from National Park Canoe and Kayak Rental- they will deliver and pick up on Saturdays!) and explore the peacefulness of Western Bay from just outside your door. Of particular interest is a small, working Oyster Farm just off the shore, which is owned and operated by the owner of Windaway. At night, take advantage of the oceanside fire pit area and absorb the Maine night sky complimented by the sounds of the ocean.

Windaway apartment is located on the Windaway estate. The apartment itself is a brand new renovation, complete with high end appliances and furnishings. The apartment can be rented by itself, or in conjunction with the Windaway Summer House, which is connected. Windaway Estate has direct/private access to a serene, rocky Maine beach on Western Bay. Located on a quiet road just a half mile from the bridge connecting the island to the mainland, Windaway offers a convenient gateway location from which to explore all of the beautiful towns and villages on MDI. Acadia National Park is spread all over the island -- the closest trail head is only a few miles away! While it is certainly best to bring a car to MDI, just down the road you can hop on the Island Explorer, which is free and takes you all around the Island and through Acadia National Park. The Island Explorer runs from early morning till late evening. It even has a bike rack!

Windaway Estate, comprising the Windaway Summer House and the Windaway Loft is the perfect, gorgeous setting and location for your MDI vacation!
