About The Owner

I am a professional private chef that has recently opened a new cafe in town. My home is an extension of my personality and I enjoy sharing it and its energy with fellow travelers. I have lived and worked in Northeast Harbor for almost twenty-five years and think it one of the most beautiful places on the east coast. Come find out for yourself! And come say Hi at 123 Main Street!

The Owner purchased this farmhouse in 2003

Why The Owner chose Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island

I started my career as a chef on yachts and landed in Northeast Harbor time and time again. It was so beautiful I bought a home here and recently opened a cafe in town called 123 Main Street.

What makes this farmhouse unique

For me, having access to Acadia for hiking and biking during the summer and fall and cross country skiing, hot baths and crackling fires in the winter is why I love my home. I love having my friends over for dinner and games but enjoy jumping into Bar Harbor for pizza and a movie at Reel Pizza equally as much. Taking a boat out the Isleford and visiting the art gallery or poking around the shops in Northeast is all a true delight!

Location, location, location!

Centrally located on MDI on a major road, all the island's high points were within a 15 minute drive. House is airy, tastefully and comfortably furnished. Linens, sheets and pillows are high quality with plenty of everything. Fireplace does make the house a little smoky smelling, but it was lovely to have on cool nights. Fantastic collection of movies and TV shows. Loved the bathrooms - great shower room on 2nd floor, soaking tub and rain shower on 1st floor were a treat. We had a wonderful stay!

Girls getaway

  • 5 of 5

I turned 50 this year and decided one of the things I would like to do to celebrate was to take some of my closes friends away for a long weekend. I put quite a bit of thought into what location would be best suited for us as we all love to be active outdoors hiking, riding bikes etc. I chose ACadia and Watersigns it could not have been more perfect we hiked everyday and then returned to the house to start a fire in the fireplace and cook in the well equipped beautiful kitchen. There was nothing that we needed that was not there I had a unexpected dog visit and e mailed Tracey to make sure it was ok for the dog to stay a couple of days and she was beyond gracious offering us the use of dog bowls and leashes. The location was perfect we walked to the giant slide trail head from the house which gives you access to the park in about 5 min! Either direction out of the driveway takes you to avadventure.One day driving home we saw a 10 point buck and minutes later pulled into the house to have another buck in the backyard. We watched a enormous eagle fishing near Eagle lake. We are all still reflecting on our stay at Watersigns with huge smiles on our faces!! Kudos to you Tracey for making your home so enjoyable and welcoming. We will be back!

A wonderful home in the heart of MDI

  • 5 of 5

It was delightful staying at this real (but fully renovated) farmhouse! It became home base for our week on MDI. Water Signs was meticulously organized and stocked with everything a couple - or large family - could ever want or need. It's prime location afforded us the ability to travel anywhere on the island and in Acadia in 20 minutes. Legendary Abel's Lobster Pound is just steps down the road and to be visited for dinner! Much thanks to the thoughtful and responsive owner. We hope to return.
