Southwest Harbor cottage description

'Cottage at the Head of the Harbor' is located on a slight terraced hill with wild flowers, rock gardens and beautiful vistas of the harbor and ocean. It is within an easy walk to charming shops, grocers and restaurants in the center of town. Breathtaking harbor views are available from the living room, first floor master bedroom, and a second floor bedroom. This house is lovingly decorated with many bright and subtle Maine touches. Each bedroom sleeps 2. A queen-sized sleeper in living room sleeps 2 more.

First floor: Large open living room with eastern views of the harbor and ocean and western views of the Western Mountains. A fully stocked kitchen with new appliances including a dishwasher and microwave oven. The two decks outside the living room and master bedroom face east and allow for leisurely days of reading and gazing. There is an outdoor gas grill. Huge master bedroom with king bed includes full bath with Jacuzzi tub. A second full bath on first floor includes shower/tub and washer and dryer. TV with DVD player and cable stations in living room. Second floor: Front bedroom with double bed has beautiful ocean and mountain views. Second small bedroom has 2 twin beds. There is a cute half bath with venting roof window. A lovely place to relax the mind and the soul. Once you're here, you won't want to leave.

Nearby, and within walking distance, are charming shops and restaurants, a local bakery, town library, dinner theatre, and lobster piers. Within a quick drive are mountain and ocean-side hiking, and the island's only lighthouse. Bar Harbor is 20 minutes away with shops, nightlife, great restaurants and daily whale watching excursions. The Acadia National Park loop road and carriage roads are 15 minutes away. The park has over 70 miles of carriage roads and bridges constructed by John D. Rockefeller, all designated only for hiking and biking. The island's only organic farm is 10 minutes away, near Somesville, with fresh fruits and vegetables available throughout the summer. Sailing lessons and kayak rentals are available in town. Sailing excursions are available in Northeast Harbor and Bar Harbor. The island's finest sunsets are 5 minutes away in Bass Harbor, with 2 pier-front restaurants.
