Southwest Harbor house description

NEW for 2012! - We now offer 2 master suites and a home theater. Landscaping upgrades will be made in the spring

"Alacrity" is a bright and lofty, colonial nestled into the pines of the Acadia Region. The living, dining room has a surround of windows and atrium doors leading to a large wrap around deck, a generous kitchen, and a private first floor master suite with a deck, double sinks, whirlpool, and shower. This all season home has a second floor with three ample bedrooms, an office, and a den. The second floor master suite has private bath and a deck with mountain and ocean views. The lower level has a home theater with wet bar, bath, and a decked porch - A lovely place to sit and savor a starry moonlit night. Sunrises, sailboats, Cadillac Mountain are all within a delightful view from this inviting property.


A short walk south takes one to the Causeway Golf Course. A footbridge across the causeway takes one into town where one will find charming shops, lobster pounds, and a variety of establishments to tempt any palate. Enjoy the remodeled library as well as museums, galleries, and churches.

A short walk north offers a climb up Flying Mountain which is noted as Acadia's greatest reward for the least amount of effort after which one can bask on the rocks of Valley Cove beach. For a greater challenge take a trail to St. Sauveur or Acadia Mountain. Discover still more of the awesome treasures of Acadia National Park on the free Island Explorer Bus or take an auto drive along breathtaking seascapes.

Lectures, cinema, and live performances are available in summer. Fall, winter, and spring offer much beauty and opportunity as well. Fall foliage is splendid, cross country skiing along the carriage roads of Acadia is magnificent, and spring simply renews awaiting souls.
