Charming Cottage Overlooking Harbor and Gorgeous Gardens

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Our charming 2 bedroom cottage overlooks the harbor as well as gorgeous gardens. These gardens have been photographed for post cards of Maine. Sit on the front deck and smell the salt air and enjoy peeks of lobster boats, sailboats, and the actions of a working harbor.

The cottage is located in a prestigious neighborhood on Clark Point Road. No need for a car. You can walk to town and dine at gourmet restaurants, shop at upscale boutiques, specialty wine, cheese and food mart, lobster pounds, a great oceanarium for children, library, fish market, and ocean swimming.

You may also flag down the free Acadia Bus in front of the cottage for a ride to any part of the island: towns, hiking trails, movies. You can walk into town and rent a bike and load it up on the bus to be dropped off anywhere in route. The location allows for great independence for all, especially children!

About Marilynn Wittenberg

We have owned this cottage and the main house next to it for 24 years. Occasionally we rent out our 3 bedroom house upon request. We have traveled a great deal, but still find this to be one of the most beautiful areas to come back to again and again.

Marilynn Wittenberg purchased this house in 1991

Great Cottage!!!

Owners friendly and helpful with first stay in MDI. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, near hikes, Acadia Park, and short walk to town. Plan on staying here again.

Southwest Harbor Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Maine - this cottage is perfectly located - a short walk into town. Very clean - has everything you will need. Short drive to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park is just beautiful! Plus the beds were so comfy!

Highly recommend!
