This functionality does not appear in core. There may be a contributed module that allows for this, but I've never seen one myself. Searching the modules (http://www.drupal.org/project/modules) is probably your best bet, if such a module exists.

For anyone wondering, you can alter the access to pages in maintenance mode.

From user.module, line ~1800 :

<?php
   
if (user_is_anonymous()) {
      switch (
$path) {
        case
'user':
         
// Forward anonymous user to login page.
         
drupal_goto('user/login');
        case
'foo/bar':
        case
'user/login':
        case
'user/password':
         
// Disable offline mode.
         
$menu_site_status = MENU_SITE_ONLINE;
          break;
        default:
          if (
strpos($path, 'user/reset/') === 0) {
           
// Disable offline mode.
           
$menu_site_status = MENU_SITE_ONLINE;
          }
          break;
      }
    }
?>

Trying to add "foo/bar", and it worked like a charm. This is a hook of hook_menu_site_status_alter(), passing site status by reference allowing you to dynamically alter access to some pages in maintenance mode.

Writing your own quick module could do the trick in few lines :)

Quick example :

<?php
function mymodule_menu_site_status_alter(&$menu_site_status, $path) {
  if (
$menu_site_status == MENU_SITE_OFFLINE) {
if (
$path == 'foo/bar') $menu_site_status = MENU_SITE_ONLINE;
}
?>
