SHORT WALK TO SHOPS, RESTAURANTS, COFFEE HOUSES, MOVIES, & THE FREE ISLAND BUS! . The best part about this lovely home is the short walking distance to nearly everything in bar harbor, especially 'Cafe This Way,' for breakfast.
BEAUTIFULLY FURNISHED, AND FULLY EQUIPPED, the "Devilstone" main house has three en suite king-sized beds, along with four full baths, a beautiful, huge deck facing the ocean, air conditioning, and best of all, it is very private, yet a very short walk to town. This house is approximately 4000 sq. ft., has a chef's kitchen with tons of gadgets. Devilstone sleeps six easily with three king-sized beds. Please see below my link to the Carriage/guesthouse below.
THIS LARGE SHOREPATH ESTATE begins at the end of a short, quiet dead-end street, and flows across nearly two acres of exquisite gardens to the edge of the ocean. There is approximately four thousand square feet of living space. The kitchen has a fireplace with a comfy sofa, large flat screen TV, DVD, six bar seats, table for six, & looks out to the ocean with an enormous deck facing the water for outdoor entertainment adjacent to the kitchen. A separate service kitchen/separate wet bar sit in-between the massive living room, and the kitchen.
THE MASTER SUITE FACES THE WATER, with french doors leading to its own private deck for that morning cup. All three en suite bedrooms have king-size beds, desks, TV's, DVD's phones, and private baths. Down by the shore, there are several Adirondack type chairs, tables and ottomans, a great place for a relaxing lunch, or that evening glass of wine.
WELL KNOWN SHOREPATH GARDENS. The creative gardens are extensive on this Shorepath property, and well known on the island. There are nearly two acres, and plenty of quiet places to read, relax, or enjoy the view. There are walking paths all over the property, and where the lawn meets the ocean, there is a walking path to town known as "The Bar Harbor Shorepath."
A SHORT WALK DOWN THE BAR HARBOR SHOREPATH TO THE TOWN PIER, go for a scenic cruise around the island, take the famous Bar Harbor Whale Watch cruise, or order an incredible picnic lunch to go, swim or kayak in pristine lakes, brave the ocean, hike the trails, or bike the carriage roads in nearby Acadia National Park, with bike and kayak rentals nearby. To top it off hop aboard a four mast schooner for an evening wine cruise on the Margaret Todd.
WALK TO BAR HARBOR CAFES, MOVIES, COFFEE HOUSES, TOWN PIER, AND SHOPPING either via a beautiful, and quiet neighborhood side street, or via the famous Bar Harbor Shorepath. Bar Harbor offers many great coffee houses, numerous unique bars, ice cream shops, scores of restaurants (most very casual), night clubs, hysterical improv theater, two movie houses, new YMCA with a great gym, and enormous swimming pool, nearby athletic facilities, a nationally renowned public golf course (Kebo and two others on the island), immediate proximity to Acadia National Park's salt and fresh water beaches, convenient connections to airports in Bangor and Trenton, deep sea fishing, sailing, antiquing, and, of course the nearby Ellsworth L.L. Bean outlet.
THEATERS AND RESTAURANTS: Bar Harbor is known for it's great seafood. With all of these restaurants within walking distance, you will certainly find something you like. Lobster, of course, is a favorite, however Thai, Italian, Mexican, Chinese and many continental restaurants are all within a few blocks of each other, all within walking distance of the Devilstone Estate. We have a beautiful deco theater called the Criterion, and there is also "Reel Pizza" with two screens, showing first run movies, and art and foreign films. The films change often for visitors.
THE SHOREPATH ESTATE: Built and named 'Devilstone' in 1885, this is one of the original estates on the famous Shorepath in Bar Harbor. Since the late 1800s, Bar Harbor has been the playground of the rich and famous, however it was, and still is a quaint, quiet and beautiful resort village on Mt. Desert Island. Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park offer just about any form of recreation you could desire. The famous Kebo Golf Course is only five minutes from your home, and three other golf courses are close by, as well. Kebo is the eighth oldest golf course in the United States. The entrance to Acadia National Park is but a five minute drive. Hiking in Acadia is an unforgettable experience for the novice, or the truly experienced. Most all forms of rental equipment are available, however biking and kayaking seem to be the most popular.

CLEANING FEES! THERE ARE NO UP FRONT, OR SET CLEANING FEES! THE FEE, IF ANY, DEPENDS ON YOU.
The cleaning/damage deposit is $1,500.00, and completely, and quickly refundable if the Devilstone Main House is left in the same condition as you found it upon arrival.
Unlike many other weekly rentals, we don't charge any up front, or set cleaning fees. The fee, IF ANY, depends on how much cleaning we have to do once you leave.
After you leave, we launder all sheets, and towels, make the beds, clean the bathrooms, and the rest is up to you for 100% refund. Our cleaning fee policy is ideal for those who leave the Main House as they found it.
Fortunately over 95% of our return guests leave the "Devilstone" Main House clean and tidy, which is why we stopped charging a fixed cleaning fee.
"DEVILSTONE" is located on the famous BAR HARBOR SHOREPATH just a short walk from the town pier, and Main Street, and everything downtown Bar Harbor has to offer. You can walk one block to Main Street via a quiet neighborhood, or via the Shorepath.
