Southwest Harbor cottage description

PORT COTTAGE HAS TWO BEDROOMS WITH KING BEDS

THERE ARE TWO LEVELS NOT CONNECTED WITH AN INTERIOR STAIRCASE. EACH LEVEL HAS A KING BEDDED ROOM, A SMALL KITCHE, A FULL BATH AND A LIVING ROOM:

Port Cottage is an exceptional rental experience.

This waterfront cottage has two stories. Each level features a king bed room, full bath, small kitchen, dining and living area, and decks overlooking the harbor. An additional queen sofa sleeper is in the downstairs unit. This cottage is ideal for couples traveling together who want their own suites or parents with children.

Included are complimentary kayaks for use in the harbor, as well as beach and dock access.

The recreational, cultural, and dining offerings in this area are incredible with the fantastic Acadia National Park at your fingertips and Bar Harbor just minutes away by car or the FREE bus transportation system available just steps from the cottage door!

Port is nestled with three other cottages in a quaint residential neighborhood on the shore of Southwest Harbor, in the midst of an interesting variety of boating activities. From the decks, check out the ferry which goes to the Cranberry Islands multiple times a day from the Upper Town Dock (within view); lobstermen moor their boats right off our dock and sell their catch just a few docks down from ours. Across the harbor is Great Harbor Marina, home to commercial fishing boats, world class pleasure yachts during the summer, and the Hinckley charter fleet.

Acadia National Park, with its nearly 32,000 acres of land offers unequaled beauty and ocean front access. Over 55 miles of carriage trails were created and gifted to the people by John D. Rockefeller provide easy hiking and biking to the summits of nearby mountains with vista of unrivaled beauty.

In spite of all the physical beauty and charm of the 'Island' we hear most from our newer guests that they were most impressed with the friendliness of the community and the people of Southwest Harbor. Most are anxious to make a visit to Southwest Harbor an annual affair!

Complimentary high speed WIFI connection available in all cottages.

It is ideal for couples travelling together with separate quarters for each couple and parents with children who can all appreciate the separation. Each level has a King bedroom, small kitchen, full bath, and living room/dining area. It will sleep 6 if you include a queen fold out sofa in the first floor livingroom).

              Each level has a living area with fantastic views of the harbor, the water is just feet away.

              The recreational, cultural, and dining offerings in this area are incredible with the fantastic Acadia National Park at your fingertips and Bar Harbor just minutes away by car or the FREE bus transportation system available just steps from the cottage door!

              Port Cottage is nestled with three other cottages in a quaint residential neighborhood on the shore of Southwest Harbor and in the midst of an interesting variety of boating activities. From the second floor deck check out the ferry which goes to some of the outer islands passes several times a day to the Upper Town Dock (within view); lobster fishermen moor their boats right off our dock who 'work off' the lobster wholesaler's docks (within view) just to the left of our property on the shore. Across the harbor is Great Bay Marina hosting commercial fishing boats and several world class pleasure yachts during the summer.

              Acadia National Park, with its nearly 32,000 acres of land offers unequaled beauty and ocean front access. Over 55 miles of carriage trails were created and gifted to the people by John D. Rockefeller provide easy hiking and biking to the summits of nearby mountains with vista of unrivaled beauty.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1979

              About the owner: Since 1980 the Dawson Family has shared their love for the beauty of Mount Desert Island with their guests. Ask owners Nancy and Jon for recommendations on restaurants, shopping, hiking trails, and secret swimming spots. We 'winter' in nearby Bangor Maine, about 45 miles Northwest of Mount Desert Island. Nancy is a Bangor native and we have an extended family there. But the beauty of the 'Island' draws us year 'round. We spend weekends in Southwest Harbor through out the four seasons! Things get very quiet in January and February but there are still great restaurants and winter activities that keep us busy.

              Why the Owner Chose Southwest Harbor:
              Clark Point neighborhood is unique, rich in a variety of offerings and activities within minutes by foot, boat, bike or auto! Being on the Harbor provides an ever changing visual experience. Heavily populated in the summer with an incredible array and variety of watercraft, from the fleet of vintage Friendship Sloops hand built by our neighbor Ralph Stanley, to luxury Hinckley sail and power boats, to the commercial fishing fleet of lobster boats and scallop draggers. This property is 'south facing' which makes it a warm and welcoming place for us during the 'off season'... Our 'winter' home is Bangor where we work in real estate and insurance, 46 miles away, but spend nearly every weekend during the fall, winter and spring seasons! Our property and location is great because there is a mix of summer residents and year 'round residents... there is an active community here in the 'off season' During the summer the bus stops at our doorstep providing free transportation around Mt Desert Island. But when its not we are within a short distance to the Causway Club, which has nine hole golf course, clay tennis courts and a salt water heated pool. On the other side of the Club is the Park with supurb hiking. One fantastic hike is Flying Mountain which is only about 250' in elevation and takes only 20 minutes to climb.
