About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

The most memorable feature of this cottage is the fantastic view of the harbor! With a rocky beach and 105 foot dock guests love getting acquainted with our active harbor.

We have kayaks available on a complimentary basis for your use in the harbor.

Topsail Cottage has two levels with two kitchens, two baths, and two living areas it is Ideal for a large or 2 family or two couple vacation.

The cottage is Just a short walk to town and access to many fine restaurants and village amenities, including a community center, tennis courts, play ground, and shops.
LAYOUT: GROUND LEVEL: Living area with kitchen, bedroom with queen size bed, bedroom with trundle daybed, full bath. FIRST LEVEL: Living area with kitchen, bedroom with king size bed, bedroom with twin beds, full bath, laundry. No interior stairs between the two levels.

The recreational, cultural, and dining offerings in this area are incredible with the fantastic Acadia National Park at your fingertips as well as the island's other small towns and villages accessible on a FREE bus transportation system!

The Park, with its nearly 32,000 acres of land offers unequaled beauty and ocean front access. Over 55 miles of carriage trails were created and gifted to the people by John D. Rockefeller provide easy hiking and biking to the summits of nearby mountains with vista of unrivaled beauty.

In spite of all the physical beauty and charm of the 'Island' we hear most from our newer guests that they were most impressed with the friendliness of the community and the people of Southwest Harbor. Most are anxious to make a visit to Southwest Harbor an annual affair!
