Property description

Our quiet, newly built summer cottage on the western slopes of Freeman Ridge in Southwest Harbor, Maine at the end of a private road, is the perfect place to enjoy your vacation in Acadia National Park on lovely Mount Desert Island. The cottage has complete privacy, located in a peaceful, forested surroundings. Built on a ledge, the cottage has a tree top view of the woods and there are keyhole glimpses through the tall spruce of Bernard Mountain to the north and Swans Island to the southwest. The tall forest surrounding the cottage give an expansive treehouse feel to a modest cabin with a small footprint. Like most summer cottages in Maine, Granite Ledge is a single construction building and designed for seasonal use. Built to the owner's specifications, the cabin's framing and roof are made from lumber harvested and milled from the property. All appliances are brand new, floors are finished hardwood, giving a luxurious feel to a rustic experience.

Location

Car: Necessary

The privacy and seclusion of Granite Road is ideal for couples, including honeymooners who want complete privacy or for families wanting a peaceful, forested surroundings, yet we are conveniently close to locations within Acadia National Park and the ocean. We are about five minutes by car from the center of the village of Southwest Harbor where you will find grocery, hardware and drugstores, an excellent small town library, attractive shops and a number of good restaurants catering to a variety of tastes and styles. Or take the “back way” through the woods on foot (or bicycle) which will take about 15 minutes. Bar Harbor is about 25 minutes away by car or 45 minutes on the free, publicly supported Island Explorer Bus Service which leaves from a number of locations in and around the village and covers most of the Island including many of your destinations within Acadia National Park.

Please note: Granite Road is a new private road that is not listed on Google Maps or Mapquest.
