Southwest Harbor cottage description

You cannot get any closer to the ocean than the location this house offers!! At high tide, the water nearly comes up all the way right up to the porch deck!

This rustic cottage sits 15 feet above high tide, on a working Maine harbor. It is charming, clean and comfortable! The new dock (2011), as well as the deck, are perfect for watching lobster boats, sailboats and yachts come and go. Go for a swim off the dock! Or enjoy a sunset out on the end of the dock. The gulls and sea ducks will entertain you as they bathe in the tidal pool and you may even spot a seal poke his head up as he swims by.

Inside, the cottage has the open stud walls of a traditional Maine summer camp. The main living/dining/kitchen area has a TWO-STORY CEILING with picture windows facing the water, comfy couches and chairs, and a large round dining table. The kitchen is small but well-equipped, and includes a dishwasher, microwave, coffee pot, and toaster oven.

The bedrooms, one downstairs and two upstairs, are clean and attractively furnished with comfortable beds and comforters. There is a full bathroom on each floor (shower downstairs, and shower with separate tub upstairs), and full-sized washer and dryer on the first floor. Fans and two space heaters are provided.

Downstairs: Living and dining area; kitchen (with dishwasher); master bedroom w/king bed; second downstairs room is a den with a couch, a couple of chairs, a 37' flat sceen TV and DVD player; bathroom with shower; washing machine & dryer. The wood stove is the ONLY source of heat for chilly days but keeps everything super toasty, along with full quilt comforters on all beds. Renters tell us the wood stove is super easy to use!

Upstairs: Bedroom with 2 twin beds; bedroom with queen bed and one (1) twin bed; full bath with shower and separate tub.

From your cottage, immerse yourselves in this beautiful part of the world, watching the shore change with the tides, and exploring the rocks and tidal pools alongside the sea birds. Take in the busy harbor scene from the deck, or rent your a kayak to launch from your very own shoreline!

Explore the shops and restaurants (some gourmet!) of
Southwest Harbor, a small town with the conveniences of library, pharmacy, two grocery stores, hardware store, wine and cheese shop, and post office. Take the children to the Oceanarium where they can hold a star fish and more! Play a round of golf at the Causeway Club.

When you are ready to venture a bit further, nearby Bar Harbor is full of restaurants and shops, as well as a museum and movie theater, and an island you can walk to at low tide. Tiny Northeast Harbor has elegant galleries and restaurants, and a lovely harbor.

Acadia National Park is breathtaking with hundreds of miles of biking and walking trails for all degrees of ability, and a fresh water lake for swimming. Or enjoy its beauty by driving to the top of Cadillac Mountain and along the eastern cliffs of the island. See the striking Bass Harbor Light House. The free Islander Bus will take you to many points in the park, as well as Bar Harbor.

You'll never want to leave this corner of paradise!

                          Why the Owner Chose Southwest Harbor:
                          For years we have loved sailing among and exploring the islands, hiking in Acadia, and enjoying the unique beauty of the Maine coastline. Mount Desert has all these things, and Southwest Harbor is our favorite town on the island.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          The house is quiet, cozy and comfortable with a fresh simplicity. The deck and picture windows allow us to watch the ever-changing harbor scenes. We can smell the sea air and wander among the rocks and tidal pools. And we're close to all that Acadia, Mount Desert, and the ocean has to offer!
