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.

Swans Island accessible by Maine State DOT Ferry, from Bass Harbor. In the summer, most days, there are six round trips daily.
