Southwest Harbor house description

Cedar View is a sweet cottage in an excellent location. It is tucked in the woods on 16 acres of land that abuts Acadia National Park. Very private setting but easily accessible to town, the harbor and many great hikes. It is located on picturesque Fernald Point Road. At the head of the road is the Causeway Golf Course and on the other end is the Acadia National Park trail head for Flying Mountain and Valley Cove. Flying Mountain is a family friendly hike with breathtaking views of the islands. Valley Cove is a stunning, cliff lined cove, accessible down a bike and stroller friendly fire road. The cottage is one mile walk into town over the mill dam, with gorgeous views of the harbor. The town of Southwest Harbor has shops, restaurants, a playground and of course the harbor, where there are numerous tour boat and sailing opportunities.
The house itself is a two bedroom, second floor living cottage. Main floor includes open living room, kitchen and dining area, a bedroom with a queen bed and a full bathroom with washer and dryer. The second floor extended loft has two twin beds, walk-in closet and full bath with soaking tub. There is a pull out sofa in the living room and a wrap around porch to sit and enjoy the morning birds or evening breeze. Wireless internet, TV and DVD player, BBQ. Walking distance to Acadia trails, golf course and the quaint town of Southwest Harbor. This cottage was a home office for the last 6 years and is newly on the market as a rental property.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1999

          About the owner: We built Cedar View together, by hand, before our kids were born. We put in every nail and board - it was a labor of love and will forever remain a wonderful memory. We moved up the hill a ways not long after our youngest was born. The cottage became an office space for Sig's engineering design work until this year when we were able to make him a home office. In addition to doing engineering, Sig plays in a local band and has his boat captains license. Anna is also an engineer and teaches physics and sustainable energy at the local college. Axel is 10 and Janey is 7 and both love to play in the woods, build forts and sail. Our golden retriever is 14 and is named after one of the descendants of the Carroll Family who left a large amount of land and the Carroll Homestead to Acadia National Park.

          Why the Owner Chose Southwest Harbor:
          Cedar View is a sweet cottage in an excellent location. It is tucked in the woods on 16 acres of land that abuts Acadia National Park. Very private setting but easily accessible to town, the harbor and many great hikes. It is located on picturesque Fernald Point Road. At the head of the road is the Causeway Golf Course and on the other end is the Acadia National Park trail head for Flying Mountain and Valley Cove. Flying Mountain is a family friendly hike with breathtaking views of the islands. Valley Cove is a stunning, cliff lined cove, accessible down a bike and stroller friendly fire road. The cottage is a 1.5 mile walk into town over the mill dam, with gorgeous views of the harbor. The town of Southwest Harbor has shops, restaurants, a playground and of course the harbor, where there are numerous tour boat and sailing opportunities.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Star Gazing and listening to the many sounds of the woods while sitting on the porch and catching distant glimpses of the light out on Baker Island is just about as relaxing as you can get.
