Historic Charm in Bar Harbor
Every once in awhile an historic Inn of sizable importance becomes available for sale. This historic in town Bar Harbor Bed and Breakfast for sale is just that!
In 1903, famed Bar Harbor architect Frederick L Savage built the bed and breakfast as his personal residence, fronting on leafy Atlantic Avenue, one of the prettiest residential streets in the village. The lovely Tudor Revival home featured artfully crafted massive granite block in the construction of its first floor and buttressed front terrace, as well as the imposing wall along the front of the property. Today, this Tudor cottage is very little changed from Frederick Savage’s original design. Sensitive and thoughtful updates have been undertaken to convert the house into one of Bar Harbor’s favorite B&B’s.

This property is a very important part of Bar Harbor’s architectural and social history.

Historic homes are seldom viable as private homes today, and the rebirth of it as a premier B&B for accommodating discriminating visitors ensures its continuing prominence in this historic village. The brilliance of Frederick Savage’s vision and design has made this possible.
