About the Property

3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, sleeps 6 adults and 2 toddlers

Harbor Star Cottage, a year round hideaway, is less than five minutes from the Echo Lake entrance of Acadia National Park and approximately a mile from the quaint and quiet town of Southwest Harbor. This lovely cottage, with pinewood floors throughout is tastefully and comfortably decorated. You will feel right at home as soon as you walk in the door! The living room is cozy and inviting with a gas fireplace, cable TV and wireless internet. The gourmet kitchen is fully equipped with state of the art stainless steel appliances and local granite countertops. The 3 bedrooms are spacious yet cozy and are each furnished with queen sized beds. Two toddler beds are also available, for families with little ones! The bathrooms are equipped with a tankless Rinnai water heater, so you will never run out of hot water! The outside patio deck is surrounded by birch trees and wildlife. There is also a gas barbeque grill for those cookouts on warm summer nights!

Location

Car: Necessary

Harbor Star Cottage is located on the 'quiet side' of Mount Desert Island, convenient to many outdoor activities on the Island and Acadia National Park such as canoeing, kayaking, hiking, biking, swimming and carriage rides, yet only a scenic 15 mile drive to the shops, attractions and restaurants of Bar Harbor. The cottage is located about 4.3 miles from picturesque and historic Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse, 1.5 miles from Long Pond, and 3 miles to Echo Lake Beach.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We love the Acadia area and vacation ourselves there every year. One of our favorite things to do in the area is to take the Carriage Rides from Wildwood Stables to Jordan Pond Teahouse.

Why the Owner Chose Southwest Harbor, ME, USA:
I was stationed in Maine while in the Navy and fell in love with Acadia National Park and the Mount Desert Island region. I wanted to have a place for my family to vacation in the summer and also to provide a relaxing and comfortable place for other families to enjoy while visiting all the attractions of the Acadia area!
