About Elisabeth Glass

We live in Colorado but enjoy summers on Mt.Desert Island (MDI) where our sons grew up sailing at the local sailing center. We love MDI for Acadia National Park, its beauty, the ocean, wildlife, and a lifestyle of simple pleasures enjoying nature and relaxation.

We enjoy all that summer's offer from sailing, cycling, hiking, and just living simply in a wonderful community. It is a haven we love.

Elisabeth Glass purchased this house in 2003

Why Elisabeth Glass chose Southwest Harbor

Mt Desert Island (MDI) is unique among Maine destinations because of Acadia National Park. We love Southwest Harbor for its Maine small town-feel, good restaurants, MDI Community Sailing, and great community. Our home is on the 'quiet side' of MDI, but the cultural attractions of Bar Harbor are only 20 minutes away.

What makes this house unique

Meadowside Cottage offers us simple summer living where we can walk or cycle to the beach, to the Seawall, or to Southwest Harbor. Our home is on one acre with a meadow on one side and a wooded section beyond the grassy backyard. It is convenient to town, but has a rural feel, too. The Islander bus will stop at the house if you wave at the driver and it provides a free ride all over Mt Desert Island including Bar Harbor.

Great spaces for family hanging out and dining

  • 4 of 5

This cottage is close to both Southwest Harbor and the southern parts of Acadia. There are plenty of spaces available for the family to hang together, or separately. Lots of amenities, great kitchen. Owners were very easy to communicate with. Would absolutely go again.

Beautiful home with everything you need to be comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house and everything it had to offer. Great place to enjoy family. Rooms were spacious with a large family and dining area. There was a keyboard, guitar, and games to keep kids and family entertained when not enjoying nature. We enjoyed it so much!

Comfortable and spacious vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in June for a week with another family and would highly recommend this property for two traveling families of four to five people with young children. There is ample room for everyone inside and outside, and a comfortable layout with plenty of entertainment to offer. The road is relatively quiet and the house is located near the rocky beaches of Southwest Harbor but still only about 20 mins from Acadia or Barr Harbor. Would have no problem staying here again, as they provide every amenity you could need in a vacation home. Thanks to Elisabeth for sharing their home with us.

Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time on Mount Dessert Island, specifically Southwest Harbor and Acadia National Park. 323 Seawall was a great location on the quiet side with just a short drive to all the island has to offer. This was a very spacious house for our family of 5 adults and one young teen. With beautiful flower gardens, herb and vegetable gardens, and every possible amenity you could ask for, this house has it all. It truly was a well-stocked cook's kitchen. We look forward to coming back someday and staying at this location.
