Swans Island studio description

Loft apartment over a small barn, on a Midcoast Maine island, close to Acaidia National Park. The apartment is fully furnished, provides comfortable accommodations for a single, or couple. The property is a ten - fifteen minute walk from the shore. The property is located in the woods on 5 acres on one of Maine's coastal islands, Swans Island. The apartment is a seasonal rental, available May to September, by the night (two nights minimum weekends - Friday&Saturday), with a weekly rate available on request.

The rental is on the north side of Swans island, in an area known as 'Island Retreat. The apartment overlooks a large clearing, and is about a fifteen minute from the shore in any direction. The area is on/near several hiking trails. There are no moose, bear, porcupines, skunks, or poisonous snakes on Swans Island. There is no public camping on the island. Swans Island accessible by Maine State DOT Ferry, from Bass Harbor. In the summer, most days, there are six round trips daily. There is no public transportation on Swans Island, bicycling is a challenge due to the terrain. The island is about 7,000 ares in extent, with about twenty miles of roads.
