Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: We have been summer residents of this area since the 1960's and 70's and recently retired here year round after 31 years of teaching in a private school in Massachusetts.

Why the Owner Chose Southwest Harbor:
This cottage was originally built in the mid 1950's as an extension to the main house, which sits nearby, providing much needed extra bedrooms. In 1997 we renovated the building, turning one of the bedrooms into a passage way which opens into a generous family living space with kitchen/dining/living area. The house now has it's own private driveway and entrance off Shore Road.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This cozy cottage is located on the quiet, but very scenic Shore Road. Walk out the driveway and turn left for a spectacular 2 mile walk 'around the block.' The walk will take you through 2 working boatyards, past the town dock and ferries to the outer islands, bus stops for the free seasonal island bus service, two boat rental businesses and past some spectacular views of Somes Sound.
