Things to Do on Holiday in Southwest Harbor, USA

However, for when you can bear to prise yourself away from your private self catering property, there are plenty of activities to get your teeth into. You may want to enjoy long nature walks through the remote and scenic countryside. You could even choose to enjoy a cycle ride through the area and mountain biking is possible for the more adventurous.

The city has a predominately 19th century skyline, which is unusual in itself for any American settlement and much of this spectacular architecture has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is not a massive city, but it is definitely extremely charming and well worth a day’s visit.

Weather in Southwest Harbor, USA

The weather on your holidays in Southwest Harbor will be akin to a continental climate. However, the fact that you will be on the southern coast of an island in the Atlantic Ocean may well spare you from the worst of Maine’s weather.

In addition, there is an excellent wine shop which also sells good cheese and olives. A deli is also there in Southwest Harbor which is not inexpensive but is comprehensive in terms of what it sells and very close.There are walks directly from the house to forest and coast but varied and longer trails are close by. The house centres around the kitchen which is very well equipped. The kitchen provided the social centre for our party and we loved eating and drinking there all together. The house is comfortable and well fitted out. The garden is large and a social focus too, aided of course by the hot tub. The great thing about the house is that after a day out walking, it is a home that you want to go back too, whether it is to stay in all evening or to go out for a drink first or start the evening in the kitchen and then go out. We recommend it highly and would go back there. Mrs Carroll is a very welcoming owner.
