Swans Island cottage description
This is an extremely private, 2.7 acre property with a spruce, birch perimeter on 3 sides. 180 degree ocean view & ocean access with steps to beach, is your 4th side. It is ideal for a small family of four or two couples. A long, winding, 300' driveway brings you from the main road to the cottage. Pickleball Court on site. Massive granite boulders define the property and step you to the cottage's back entry door. While at the 5' wide, kitchen sink window you miss little ocean activity as seals/porpoise/eagles/cormorants/duck families/loons appear/disappear. Terns spin on a dime to dive into the ocean for their herring meal not 100' away. New plants/flowers/shrubs adorn the cottage perimeter in raised granite defined beds. Outside the beds is a lawn that wraps around the cottage.
The master bedroom's 3 window grouping makes you feel as if you are on the deck of a large ship when you awake each morning as all you can see is ocean....The sounds of waking birds and crashing waves slip you to sleep and greet you each morning.
You view 180 degrees to Blue Hill Bay to north and to Duck Island lighthouse to the south with colorful sunrises due east. Beautiful harbors: Southwest Harbor, Northeast Harbor and Bar Harbor are an hour away via ferry.
Looking to the north from your dinner deck, you catch the soft edges of sun setting color, lavenders, periwinkles, blues and pink.
Large power and sailing vessels appear/disappear while you are playing croquet or badminton on the front lawn.
A large, sandy beach is 5 miles away on this island. A local market offers groceries. A bakeshop offers breakfast/lunch and International Wednesday dinners.
In the event of a power outage a propane (500lbs) generator automatically supplies power to the cottage for everything except the outdoor outlets.
New library is just a 1/4 mile walk/ride

Swans Island is as private and unspoiled a property as we could find along the Maine coast while offering easy access to beautiful harbors and one of the world's treasured National Parks, Acadia and Mount Desert. Swans offers the freshest fish/lobster/scallops from several retail markets on the island.
