Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: We are a family of 4 who have been coming to Acadia every year since 1989. Jim came to visit Acadia National Park as part of a Field Biology class for college and fell in love with Acadia. When Robyn graduated from college, he wanted to take her somewhere special, and so we went to Acadia. We fell in love with the beautiful mountains and cliffs that overlook oceans, the lakes and the woods, and just enjoying nature. We loved the lighthouse and the natural seawall that are nearby. We also enjoyed the laid-back, slower lifestyle of the Down-easter’s. We loved Acadia so much, that we purchased a piece of land with the hopes of retiring in Acadia some day. We were fortunate enough to be able to build a home on that land and begin using it in 2006 and offer you the chance, as well, to use it also to enjoy the piece of heaven we found in Acadia. Our family loves to vacation here each year, and we know that once you visit, you will love Acadia, too!
Why the Owner Chose Southwest Harbor, ME, USA:
Our home is in a quiet,wooded area where you can enjoy wildlife as well as peace and quiet. We like to watch the birds, deers, squirrels, chipmunks, and rabbits. We have seen a fox and coyote also. We also enjoy the wild flowers in the garden as well as the humming birds and dragonflies that visit daily. Our neighborhood is safe. Children can ride bikes in the neighborhood since it is off the main road and has very little traffic. We love that we are close to many Acadia National Park areas, especially Echo Lake, Seawall (great place to see shooting stars), and Bass Harbor Lighthouse, yet not in the noisy, crowded areas at night when we wish to get a good night's rest for the next days activities. We can even ride our bikes to the town to catch the FREE Island Explorer bus. These buses are the Best deal on the island. We love hiking the near-by trails and looking at the Milky Way at night. You have never seen so many stars, except maybe at a planetarium.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have gone out of our way to make our home comfortable for you and ourselves. Our home is much more than just a rental. We also use this house for vacation, so you know it's comfortable and well stocked. We have added many, many extras such as nightlights, flashlights, extra supplies in case you forget to buy them the 1st time you are at the market. There are even cookbooks, DVD's, Books, Games, and puzzles (great for rainy days). We have an overflowing Welcome Package chalked full of ideas for your vacation. We also enjoy using the picnic table and grill to enjoy the outdoors and wildflower garden.
