Local Area Information

The Neighborhood

We are walking distance to a town beach and park. We also have our own very private, rocky beach. We often tell people that if they walk the beach everyday, they “may” see a few other people. You can search for sea glass and driftwood along our shoreline.

The roads in the area also create a nice 2-mile loop that is fairly flat which is great for walking, jogging or biking.

A car is a necessity and if you are getting a rental, please realize that both Bangor and Bar Harbor are very small airports and the counter may be closed when you arrive so check beforehand. Rental car availability has also been difficult lately so if you need a rental, book soon.

Biking is good near our house and FANTASTIC in the park on the Carriage Roads.
