                  Quietside retreat is a five minute walk to the quaint village center of Southwest Harbor, a five minute drive to Acadia National Park and just a 20 minute drive to Bar Harbor. Hiking, nature, boating and relaxing surrounds Quietside Retreat. With many options for sightseeing tours, boat excursions or just relaxing and enjoying a good book on the covered porch, there is something for everyone in Southwest Harbor.

We retained many of the homes original features including stairway, hard wood floors on 2nd floor and front farmer's porch. We have modernized the interior with new cherry kitchen cabinets and stainless steel appliances, new electrical, plumbing, and heating with on demand hot water, two new bathrooms and stackable washer and dryer. This home offers a large back yard for enjoying the evening campfire and cook out.

                  Why the Owner Chose Southwest Harbor:
                  We have watched this home for many years in its declining state and decided now is the time to rescue this home and restore it to it's original splendor. We hope you enjoy as much we do. Please make Quietside Retreat at 264 MainStreet, an everlasting memory for your family.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Superior intown location. Park your car and enjoy the free bus service around the island or walk to town for dinner and an ice cream. This home has a real coastal feel.
