Large, late 1800s home. Nestled in between the historic district and the commercial district at the heart of downtown Bar Harbor, yet surprisingly secluded and private with ample verdant grounds and generous off-street parking. A (genuine) 3-5 minute walk to all parts of the central business district, with numerous shopping, entertainment, and dining options, as well as the ocean, town beach, Shore Path, Village Green, local museums, and main station for the complimentary island shuttle.

Location

Bar Harbor, Maine, United States

The Libby House sits in a tree-filled, sunny neighborhood abutting the historic residential district that was once home to a colony of "rusticators" comprised of New York Philharmonic Orchestra luminaries. Although almost everything that you will want to see or do in Bar Harbor is a 3-5 minute walk away, the property is well-sheltered from the noise, congestion and lights of the downtown. The grounds are quite spacious, affording considerable room for children to play. Our favorite activities include taking an early morning walk on the shore path, enjoying a cocktail on the back porch at sunset, and catching a band concert on the nearby Village Green.
