                      The Rice Cottage is one block from downtown Southwest Harbor. You can walk to the grocery store, library, hardware store, gift and clothing stores, great restaurants or rent a bike across the street at Southwest Cycle. The Island Explorer bus can be caught one block from the house and will take you all over Mount Desert Island. Acadia National Park is just a few miles up the road. A ferry and the mail boat can be a fun trip to see near by islands like Suttons, Great Cranberry and Little Cranberry Island.

                      Antiquing is fun in Northeast Harbor, Ellsworth and Searsport. Don't miss the Chicken Barn and The Old Creamery in Ellsworth.
