Southwest Harbor cottage description

New in 2013 at 'Harbor Daze' - Hot Tub! This charming, three-bedroom, two-bath cottage offers an open living area, private backyard, and a large deck with spectacular views of Southwest Harbor. Immaculate and comfortable, it is an ideal place to just relax or use as a home base for all your vacation activities. Whether you are in the fully equipped kitchen, sunny dining area, or relaxing on the couch, the nautical motif, cathedral ceilings, and floor-to-ceiling windows provide a light and airy feel and great views of the harbor. Sit at the desk in the loft to write out your postcards while taking in the view. Enjoy the sunrise over the harbor as you sip your morning coffee on the deck and watch the harbor come to life. Then enjoy all that the island has to offer, but be sure to be back in time to catch the breathtaking sunset. As the sun sets behind you, watch the light illuminate the boats in bright white with a pink glow on the entire harbor.
Soak in the brand new hot tub after a day of hiking, biking, swimming, sightseeing, shopping....

New in 2013: Hot Tub, HD TV and all new bedding!


Away from the Crowds, close to everything!: Situated on the 'quiet side' of the island, you can enjoy the real Down east Maine away from the crowds, but still be within minutes of world-famous Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor.

You can explore all that the park has to offer by yourself, take a guided tour or take Mount Desert Island's new bus, the 'Island Explorer,' available to the public free of charge! Harbor Daze is on the Island Explorer bus route...destinations include just about anywhere you want to go on the island.

Wide Range of Fun Activities: There are a number of outfitters located on Mount Desert Island that rent bicycles and kayaks as well. Just ten miles to Bar Harbor and you can enjoy a wide variety of activities from the most relaxed to the most rigorous, dining for all tastes and budgets, and shopping in many unique shops and galleries. Regardless of your interests, this cottage and surrounding attractions are sure to make for a fulfilling vacation!

Come in the Fall-Beautiful Foliage, lower rates!: The months of September and October are a fabulous time to come to 'Harbor Daze' House. The rates are lower, the crowds have left, the weather is comfortable and the foliage is spectacular!!!
