Spend your vacation in a sophisticated modern setting in our modern upgraded cottage with your private access to a pink granite seawall for viewing yachts, lobstermen and wildlife in MDI's Western Way ocean thoroughfare. The Eagle picture below was taken right there. The building is in prime shape, with amenities that bring it to an A+ level.

Large living and dining area; recent new kitchen with gas stove, dishwasher and gourmet granite eat-in bar; one bedroom (King Bed configuration); granite and glass bathroom with walk-in shower.

Washer and dryer to keep your laundry up to date, and a wood stove and propane area heater to keep you toasty on chilly Maine evenings. All kitchen gear you'll need to cook up your gourmet lobster feasts.

The cottage was designed by a noted local architect and our renovations make it a contemporary, stylish gem. Please look at the recent reviews for a sense of how our guests have liked the place. It is optimal for one or two adults, and we have seen a very strong interest in the September and October season when the weather and views can be amazing.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: Owners on property in main house on the 3 acre estate. We live here about half of the year. Our son is grown and on his own, so it is very quiet here.

Why the Owner Chose Southwest Harbor:
Our family has vacationed and lived in the area for generations, so it was preordained that we would end up somewhere nearby. When we had a chance to buy this place we jumped on it.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We found this property 17 years ago abandoned because of the time and expense it takes to keep an oceanfront property up to date. It took us 15 years to get it right, but now it is a truly first class environment.
