Southwest Harbor house description

Rent our comfortable and spacious home, located on the Shore Road between the Hinckley and Manset Town docks. Perched atop a former warehouse, it is surrounded by a huge deck, and affords spectacular views of Southwest Harbor and the mountains of Acadia National Park.

The open kitchen/dining/living room area features picture windows and a massive hearth of local stone. Convenient to Acadia National Park, hiking, biking, kayaking, free island shuttle bus and all MDI attractions.


Things to do: Visit Acadia National Park: Hike the trails, bike the carriage roads, swim or fish or boat in the lakes, enjoy Park programs such as ranger-led nature hikes, watch the wildlife, or relax at the beach - this is one of the most spectacular Parks in the National Park System.

The hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor is a short drive across the Island, where you can enjoy an amazing variety of tourist activities appealing to any taste or budget.

Finally (this is our personal favorite), you can simply relax at home. Send the kids down to fish or out to play in the yard. Sit back on our deck and enjoy the view. Watch the boats in the harbor, enjoy the play of light on the mountains of the Park or the islands offshore, see if you can spot a bald eagle soar overhead, and let yourself unwind.

What's this about a warehouse?: Our house was once a commercial property. It was, at various times, a boat-builder's shop and a seafood distributorship. There are two large warehouse bays in which we store cars and boats (big boats!) in the winter, and our house is built over one of the bays. However, it is no longer used commercially.

          Our house is located on the Manset Shore, in the town of Southwest Harbor on the 'Quietside' of Mt. Desert Island. The town dock is just yards from our driveway, and there you can board the free Island Explorer shuttle bus that serves the entire Island, catch a ferry to the Cranberry Islands, or fish for mackerel (we provide fishing poles). You can launch your kayak at the foot of the driveway, or search for sea glass or shells at low tide. The Manset Shore is a working waterfront, with the Hinckley Yacht Service yards a few blocks away, and you can observe the activities first-hand. There are several restaurants within a few blocks of the house. The town of Southwest Harbor is less than 2 miles away, with restaurants, shops, museums, kayak and bicycle and boat rentals, churches, a drug store, banks, and a post office, Acadia National Park is just minutes away, with its mountains, shoreline and lakes.

          Other Activities: kayaking, whale watching, hiking
