Southwest Harbor house description
How about a Maine adventure with kayaking, swimming, hiking and breathing in the fresh Maine air and still stay in a new home that makes you really feel like you've been pampered? This is what you'll experience with just a 20 minute ride to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. If that is too long; swim, hike or kayak Long Pond or Echo Lake just 5 minutes away. Still too far? How about a leisurely stroll to Southwest Harbor shopping and restaurants, maybe walk down to the Southwest Harbor Lobster Dock and pick out a few crusty lobsters to bring home and either steam or grill! While they're cooking relax with a glass of wine on the deck under the umbrella and enjoy the view of Southwest Harbor and Cadillac Mountain!
This is why we come to Maine, THE LIFESTYLE! Charming Bass Harbor and the Bass Harbor Lighthouse is just up the road, take out pizza and ice cream at Gott's(an MDI institution), is just a few minutes up the road. Looking for kayak or bike rentals? They are just a few minutes away at downtown Southwest Harbor. You can put your bikes on the free LL Bean Bus in the summer and ride the carriage roads in Acadia (catch it at the bottom of the street) and never have to use your car.
If you want to explore the spectacular Schoodic Penninsula or the charming towns of Cherryfield or Blue Hill this is a great central place to start. Come once and you'll be back year after year just like us!

ReviewsWrite a review
Owners were easy to work with and knowlegable about local activities, restaurants, etc. This home was very neat, clean and well equipped. We loved the kitchen & the deck. Beds were very comfortable. It was an easy walk into town. This property is located on the "quiet side" of Mount Desert Island & is a short drive to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. If our travels bring us to this area again, we would definitely consider this property.

About: We started traveling to the Northeast 10 years ago searching Nova Scotia, Massachusetts, and the entire Bar Harbor and Acadia area for a vacation home. Nothing seemed like home until we found the town of Southwest Harbor. Everything you could want or need is just a stone's throw away yet its still home to Acadia's many glorious and varied experiences: Thunder Hole, Jordan Pond, Long Pond, Echo Lake, Cadillac Mountain, Northeast Harbor and Seal Cove (be sure to look for Martha Stewart!).
Why Southwest Harbor:
There's no place like Maine. ' The way life should be.' Life is simple and safe enough to let your kids walk into town or to the lobster docks or harbor.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Free seasonal transportation as the Island Explorer picks you up and the end of the street to take you anywhere on the island, a huge plus. An exquisite view of the harbor and mountains, a kitchen to accommodate any gourmet chef. Just because you're on vacation doesn't mean you should give up your comforts! Grill outside on the deck and enjoy the fabulous Maine weather! Walk out the backyard to The Great Harbor. Realize so much of Acadia National Park is within a 5 minute ride of Southwest Harbor, swim or kayak at Long Pond, Wonderland Hike, Shipwatch Hike, and the Seawall!
