Snell House is named in honor of Nobel laureate Dr. George D. Snell (1903 - 1996) of the Jackson Laboratory who lived here with his wife, Rhoda, and three sons. Click on "The Doctor" tab to learn more about this fascintating man.
Located on quiet tree-lined Atlantic Avenue, Snell House is one-half block from the historic Bar Harbor Shore Path and within easy walking distance of downtown shops and amenities. In summer, enjoy lush, flowering shrubs, expansive lawns, and maybe a fresh tomato or carrot from the garden. There are many entrances to Acadia National Park on MDI, at least three are within two or so miles of Snell House.
Snell House offers five comfortable vacation apartments. They range in size from a single-bedroom efficiency, a single-bedroom with living/kitchen area and cozy upstairs loft, to large two-bedroom units, all with full kitchen. A large, handicapped-friendly, single-bedroom apartment with kitchen and sit-down shower is also available. Rates for the high season range from $1000 to $1300 per week.
Snell House also rents longer term during the winter from, roughly, mid-October to early June. If you're a student or a visiting intern at the Jackson lab or the MDI hospital, or will be visiting the Island for an extended stay during the winter months, please let us know if we can help.
Children are welcome at Snell House, and though we love animals, pets are not. Smoking is also a no-no. Snell House accepts all major credit cards.
