It overlooks beautiful Southwest Harbor, the entrance to Somes Sound, inner and outer islands, as well as a the western and eastern mountains of Acadia National Park. Perfectly located for sunrise or sunset views, or for simply relaxing and watching the elegant Hinkley Yachts, racing sailboats or local fishing fleet come and go. A few steps out the door and you can catch the Cranberry Cove Ferry to the outer islands or the Island Explorer - Acadia's free shuttle that offers Mount Desert Island visitors and residents free transportation to hiking trails, carriage roads, island beaches, and in-town shops and restaurants.

It is a one story wood-shingled ranch style home with private sleeping loft. It includes an extra large back deck nestled at the intersection of woodland and ocean view with no neighbors in sight, and a seasonal wildflower garden.

The Cottage features a gas grill, high speed wireless Internet, cable TV, DVD, deck, and outdoor furniture.

Incredible getaway - beautiful ocean view/deck

  • 5 of 5

I only have good things to say about this property. BEAUTIFUL location and quaint, cozy interior. Comfy beds and incredible, large deck to eat and relax on. Can see the ocean from the deck. Spent lots of time on the beach looking for sea glass and went hiking in Acadia (less than 15 min to many trails including Acadia Mountain <moderate to strenuous at times> which I recommend - phenomenal view). The cottage is around the corner from downtown Southwest Harbor which is fun for an afternoon of coffee and shopping. 20 min from Bar Harbor. Perfect getaway - I can't wait to go back next summer with friends!
