This popular and charming in-town house is situated on tidal Somes Cove with gorgeous easterly views of Somes Harbor and the mountains of Acadia National Park. Sea kayak (2 provided), canoe, or boat literally from your backyard from the new deck and dock (see photos). A kayaker's dream! The house is right on Main Street in the historic village of Somesville. It has all the amenities. HD flatscreens, high speed internet, and phone. ATTENTION PHOTOGRAPHERS!!! Set up your tripod on the deck and photograph bald eagles,ospreys, and harbor seals working the alewife run in the cove every day. You'll be amazed! The backyard serves as an awesome place to relax and reflect while you watch the tides and enjoy the deck,/dock, and gas grill. Centrally located on MDI, you are only 10 minutes from Bar Harbor, NEH, and SWH. Convenient access to the bus stop for the 'Island Explorer'. Access to Somesville Town Landing. Truly a great place to stay while you enjoy everything in Acadia.

Book directly through me and avoid service fee.
