The cabin is non smoking. There will be ‘butt‘ cans for smokers to use outside. Smoking inside will result in a cleaning fee. We ask that you keep your pets at home for several reasons, the ‘land minds’ they leave behind and allergies other guest may have.

Year Purchased: 2012

About: We live on the property about 300 feet from the cabin. We built the cabin from a log kit, started in 2012 and finished in June 2013 for the rental season.

Why Southwest Harbor, ME, USA:
This cabin was finished this year, 2013. It measures 20' x 30 and features a separate bedroom, a sleeping loft, a separate bathroom, a full size kitchen and a screened in deck. It is nestled in a wooded area at the base of Mansel Mountain on the ‘Quiet Side’ of the Island, within 500 feet from the owners residence, cabin #1 and the nearest neighbor and only 3 miles to the center of town. There is private access to hiking and bicycling trails using your own entrance to Acadia National Park, right outside your front door. Within a short driving distance there are swimming, deep sea and fresh water fishing, canoeing, kayaking and boat rentals. There are also other recreations such as golf, tennis, horseback riding, Whale Watching cruises, glider rides, Park guided tours, bird watching, lighthouse tours and galleries within a short driving distance.
