Description

Legacy Properties Sotheby's International Realty is proud to present Rising Sun, located at 99 Sols Cliff Road in Bar Harbor. This is the perfect home to host multi-generational family gatherings. Enjoy perfect privacy right on Frenchman's Bay, with magnificent vistas of the open ocean and panoramic views from inside that include Bald Porcupine, Ironbound, Egg Rock, and the Thrumcap Islands. You'll not find such ocean views and intimacy with the water anywhere else on Mount Desert Island (MDI).

Located at the very end of a series of private roads off Main Street, Rising Sun offers unmatched privacy while being only minutes from the center of Bar Harbor. This unique combination provides great privacy with proximity to the center of Bar Harbor (a five to eight-minute drive), the nearest Park Trails (a pleasant ten-minute walk), Ocean Drive (seven minutes), and the nearest Island Explorer bus stop (a fifteen-minute walk).

The very private road is as safe and beautiful as Acadia's Carriage Roads and bounds the National Park. Walk ten minutes to Schooner Head Trail, which leads north to Compass Harbor and south to Schooner Head, Anemone Cave, Sand Beach, and the Ocean Path. Your early morning walk with your dogs will be a highlight of any day.

Families with kids will especially enjoy the resident wildlife—deer, turkeys, a red fox family, marmots, weasels, cormorants, eagles, osprey, and seals all visit frequently. Despite the private location, the home is only a five-minute drive or ten-minute bike ride to the center of Bar Harbor.

The ocean frontage at Rising Sun is significantly different from many other homes. At low tide, other locations may have mud flats, but at Rising Sun, the granite rocks extend into deep water, providing stunning views at all times. Sit on the rocks and dip your toes in the ocean.

The home is designed for comfort, with central air conditioning and a whole house air filtration system that circulates and replaces the inside air with outside air four times a day. The natural cooling from the ocean breeze is complemented by strong cross-ventilation.

For those looking to exercise, a variety of options exist, including dumbbells ranging from 5 to 75 pounds, a stationary exercise bike, a yoga wall with mats and straps, and outdoor activities like walking, jogging, biking, or playing pickleball on the lawn. Nearby, you'll find a facility with an Olympic-sized pool, running track, weight and exercise room, basketball court, tennis courts, and a baseball field.

The hot tub, nestled in a rock outcropping, offers beautiful views of Frenchman's Bay. Cooking enthusiasts will love the well-equipped kitchen, complete with herbs, spices, and professional-grade tools, all with breathtaking ocean views.

Enjoy peaceful, star-filled evening strolls along the private road, as beautiful as Acadia's carriage roads. Early risers can delight in morning walks, possibly accompanied by wildlife, to Compass Harbor for stunning island views. In blueberry season (late July to mid-August), pick wild blueberries from the trail.

Whether you seek relaxation or adventure, Rising Sun offers the perfect balance. Enjoy a week or two of paradise, and bring your dogs—they’ll love it too!

The weekly rental rate for up to six guests is $13,000.00. Each additional guest, up to the maximum of 12, will be charged $805.00.
