If you desire Maine coastal living at its finest, you won't do much better than "Bear Creek," a classic shingle-style home with a contemporary twist, boldly perched on the granite shores of Frenchman Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. Entering the almost 16-acre property along the winding driveway through a forest of old and new growth trees and abundant mosses and lichens, guests are delivered from the hustle and bustle of the village of Bar Harbor, only minutes away, to a tranquil retreat with spectacular 180-degree views of Egg Rock Light, Thrumcap Island, Schoodic Peninsula and the open ocean. Enjoy the rising sun, passing lobster boats or cruising yachts, or the simple companionship of crashing surf against the rocky bluff below from this spectacular offering!
