Property description

Quiet, serene living in country home over looking the ocean. Spectacular 180 degree view includes to the North and Northeast: Blue Hills, Bass Harbor and Mount Desert Island; to the East: Placentia and Goff Islands; and to the South: Frenchboro. At night watch the blinking lights from Lighthouses at Bass Harbor and Frenchboro. Day time enjoy the lobster boats and porpoises.

During the day cruise ships and sailing vessels from 30' sloops to ocean going racers with masts 150' tall, pass by on their way to/from Eggemoggin Reach and Bar Harbor areas. Large centrally heated home in excellent condition with 25' x 20' composite deck. 250 feet of gentle sloping back yard to ocean; several pebble beaches amongst the rocky shore for beach cookouts, launching kayaks; acres of mowed fields wonderful for outdoor activities. Large picnic table and plenty of chairs on deck.


'Thanks for the opportunity to use your wonderful property. The view is truly magnificent and the yard wonderful. Swans is a special place. Are you renting the property now for next summer? Please let us know. There is something about that island that makes for very special vacations for this family.' 2008 Renter


'Just wanted to thank you for letting us share your lovely cottage. What a fantastic location. It was just what we needed to unwind from our fast paced lives. The sun rise was so beautiful from the beach. We saw a whale one morning, we had a pair of porpoise' visit almost daily & of course the seals.' 2008 Repeat Renter (5 Years)


'Thank you for renting your lovely Swans house to us again. We had a fine week. One night we turned off all lights and watched a lightning storm over the bay. Another we watched the full moon come up over the bay. And a third day we witnessed a sailboat race across it. My wife had her annual lobster (she claims they are never as good anywhere else) and I ate donuts from the Bake Shop. We would like to return the corresponding week next year if the house is for rent again.' 2008 Repeat Renter (5 Years)
