Swans Island house description
Swans Island is a quintessential Maine summer island. It is a unique experience where one can truly escape life in this idyllic setting. There's one little store, a small year round friendly community, and old school charm.
You can gaze out at the spectacular harbor views from the porch (and bedrooms) of this comfortable house (that accommodates up to six people, with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and a look-out loft.) The fisherman’s dock where you can select your lobsters for dinner is just down the hill. And a beautiful, historic light house is a lovely, short walk away. There’s even a “fine sand beach,” that can be reached from the woods. Swans Island is a scenic 30 minute ferry ride from the mainland, where you can go for the day to check out bustling Bar Harbor or explore Mt. Desert Island. This is a great vacation opportunity that has it all!

- Fresh water quarry (swimming), fine sand beach, great for walking, biking, conversation. Church/local fairs & dinners. Artist's studio tours, watercolor painting classes, yoga (but all-in-all, not as artsy as it might sound -- Swans is a 'working' island with more boat painting than picture painting.). Excellent for families. Excellent for picnics. Great library with lectures, movies, readings, programs for kids. Day camp which can be joined by the day or the week and great for ages 7 to 13. ...moreless

Spectacular Ocean View, Maine Island Get-Away!
Spectacular Ocean View, Maine Island Get-Away!
My family has spent summers on Swans Island for over 50 years. Because our family's cottage is small, we have rented many island homes over the years for overflow. When we heard the Lofvings were renting their house, we jumped at the chance to stay there. Compared with many of the other homes we have rented on the Island, we found the Lofving house was carefully prepared and decorated to make a vacationer's stay comfortable. The house is bright and cheery with beautiful views of the harbor from the wonderful wrap around front porch, and the upstairs bedrooms. The Lofving house is located in the picturesque "village" of Burnt Coat Harbor. The Swans Island Tea Room is a short walk up the road, and the Light House is 1/4 of a mile walk in the other direction. The one small store on the Island and the lovely Fine Sand beach are both a quick drive away. If you want to "get away from it all" Swans Island is the place to go, and the Lofving house is one of the most special homes on the Island to spend your time in.
