About the property

Spacious home in private wooded setting!

This spacious 3 bedroom 3.5 bath home is situated in a private, wooded setting on the edge of Southwest Harbor's bustling village. All one one level, it offers sophisticated yet comfortable furnishings in an open floor plan design. A cozy sun room extends the space and leads to a lovely wrap around deck. Within walking distances to the village center, it's also close to several Acadia National Park access points.

All on one level, the home features an open floor plan with high ceilings and interesting architectural details. The cheerful and well-applianced kitchen offers a center island with prep sink, and a generously sized pantry. The kitchen opens to a sunny breakfast area with seating for four or more. The adjacent living room offers plenty of seating on overstuffed, leather furnishings and a large, flat screen tv.

It offers a queen bed and en suite bath with an enormous Jacuzzi tub and separate shower. The second bedroom is set with a queen bed and has an en suite bath with tub and shower. The third bedroom offers a set of twin beds and an en suite full bath with tub and shower as well.

Wonderful home in Southwest Harbor, Acadia

  • 5 of 5

We (2 couples) loved this spacious, comfortable home in Southwest Harbor and would stay there again in a heartbeat. Southwest Harbor is on the quiet side of Mount Desert Island and was the perfect base for our five day stay. The house is exactly as pictured, with everything you need, including some very thoughtful extras (loved the muffins! the wine! the Halloween candy! the fruit!) The kitchen is outfitted remarkably well for a rental, the beds are very comfortable, each of the three bedrooms has its own bath, and there is even Netflix available. The owners are on site but not intrusive in the least (in fact, we never even saw them in 5 days) and were very responsive and pleasant to deal with by email, phone, text. Their suggestions for places to eat and things to do are spot on. We have stayed in SWH before and can attest to the excellent food at The Rogue Cafe, Red Sky, and Thurston's. Really, a lovely place. Thanks, Sarah and Paul, for sharing your home.

Acadia National Park Trip

Sarah and Paul, my friends and I had a wonderful time staying at your home. Your house was large, clean, well furnished and very nice. If we ever return to Acadia National Park we will certainly check your home's availability.

Thank you for everything.

Wonderful loaction to visit Acadia

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful, well maintained and has every amenity you will need. Beautiful backyard to sit back, gave a cup of coffee and bird watch. House is close to Southwest Harbor and to all of the great access points for hiking in Acadia. Nice, quiet secluded location. Owners are extremely responsive to all requests and could not have been nicer. Highly, highly, recommend this house.

Beautiful, clean, well appointed house.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Sarah and Paul for a wonderful stay. Your house is beautiful. I love the lay out, the beds, the pillows, the decorating and all the amenities. It had everything we needed in it. We had a wonderful time. We hiked Acadia and did a bigger lunch at Jordan Pond or Bar Harbor then returned for a light dinner and an evening of games. I only wish we had planned for a longer stay.

I have rented many properties over the past several years through home Away and this was the best of the best. The kitchen/living area suited our needs to enjoy the family while cooking together. The house was immaculate and provided everything needed for the week. Paul and Sarah (the owners) were superb and attentive to our needs. My family and I highly recommend this property and would absolutely stay again in a heart beat!!
