Dreamy Design that Feels at Home in Maine
Modern Amenities with a Touch of Whimsy

Your Home Away from Home at the Doorstep of Acadia National Park

Available for long-term rentals (31 days or more), The Willow House is a custom-designed private home just steps away from all the action and activity of downtown Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Yet, because of where it’s based – nestled on a wooded one acre on the western edge of West Street – it feels as though you could be miles away with the sense of utter privacy and seclusion. Add in the fact that guests also have exclusive access to all the amenities of Harborside Hotel, Spa & Marina – and sibling Opal property West Street Hotel, in which this home was created in partnership with – and you’ve got the makings of one beautiful Bar Harbor vacation.
