NEW HOT TUB! LUXURY OCEANFRONT SETTING ON HARBOR, PRIVATE DOCK

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday condo in Southwest Harbor - Midships at Windward Shores

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 6

New for 2013 - Hot Tub!!

Come and enjoy the luxury accommodations and spectacular, unparalleled views of Southwest Harbor at 'Midships' at Windward Shores. Windward Shores is an exclusive 3 unit condominium enviably situated at the head of the harbor on the shores of Southwest Harbor. But don't shy away because of the word 'condo', this is no cookie-cutter condo! Windward Shores is not part of a larger complex. It is just one custom built waterfront property in a quiet residential neighborhood, with a homey, cottage feel. 'Midships' is the largest of the 3 condos boasting 3 levels, floor to ceiling windows, private patio, deck, sloping lawns, and private dock.

From the gleaming hardwood floors and spiral wooden staircase to the granite countertops and tiled doubled-headed master shower, it's the attention to detail that make 'Midships' a cut above the rest.

With truly breathtaking views from any of the three levels at 'Midships' as well as from the deck and private master patio with hot tub, you're ever close the the ocean. Closer still, step out to the sloping lawn, where you'll find seating and a Chiminea (outdoor fireplace or 'firepot') just above the shoreline and access to Windward Shores own private dock, all right in front of you!

Attention to Detail: As you walk into 'Midships' main level, you are consumed by panoramic views of the harbor. The open floor plan of this level allows you to soak in the views whether you're cooking in the kitchen, relaxing in the sitting area or dining at the table with family and friends. The fully appointed kitchen has gorgeous granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, including a double oven, cook top stove, refrigerator with water/ice dispenser and a built in microwave. Take the spiral staircase to the upper level and find a great spot for watching the activity of the harbor, enjoying cable on the flat screen HDTV, or curling up with a good book. This level also offers a bedroom with double bed.

In the lower level you'll find the master bedroom with hot tub on private patio overlooking the harbor, tiled master bath with double-headed shower, a second bedroom with twin bunk beds, and another bathroom with tub and shower. Plenty of room to spread out!

Away from the Crowds, Close to Everything!: Situated on the 'quiet side' of the island, you can enjoy the real Downeast Maine away from the crowds, but still be within minutes of world-famous Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. You can explore all that the park has to offer by yourself, take a guided tour or take Mount Desert Island's bus, the 'Island Explorer', available to the public free of charge! Destinations include just about anywhere you want to go on the island. There are a number of outfitters located on Mount Desert Island that rent bicycles and kayaks, several with walking distance of 'Midships'. A stroll into Southwest Harbor or a short drive to Bar Harbor and you can enjoy a wide variety of activities from the most relaxed to the most rigorous, dining for all tastes and budgets, and shopping in many unique shops and galleries. Regardless of your interests, 'Midships' and the surrounding attractions are sure to make for a fulfilling vacation!

Come in the Fall-Beautiful Foliage, lower rates! : The months of September and October are a fabulous time to come to 'Midships'. The rates are lower, the crowds have left, the weather is comfortable and the foliage is spectacular!!!

Have school-age kids but still want to avoid the crowds, why not come to 'Midships' in June!

Great property. Very well maintained and clean. Liked being on the quieter side of the island but still close enough to get to the park and Bar Harbor. The hot tub was a nice feature. Eat 2 Pita is a must for eating in town! would definitely rent this place again and recommend it to friends.

Wonderful vacation condo!

My family spent a terrific week at this condo in Southwest Harbor. The listing was very accurate and we loved the location so close to town and the beautiful view of the harbor. The condo was nicely furnished, comfortable and well supplied. This area of Maine has so much to offer - hiking, biking, golfing along with great restaurants and shops. The condo was a peaceful and relaxing place to come back to after a busy day. I would highly recommend it!
