About the Property

3 BR 2 BA Sleeps 6

You cannot get any closer to the ocean! Check out the live Harborcam from our porch at: https://video.nest.com/live/Dajpa3.

This cottage sits 15 feet above high tide on Southwest Harbor, a classic Maine working harbor. The deck is perfect for watching the harbor, reading a book, or enjoying the beautiful sunsets. Our shore front offers a small sand beach and at low tide, lots of rocks and tidal pools for exploring. The dock is ideal for launching a kayak (bring your own or rent in town), a swim on a hot day, or for sipping your favorite beverage while perched on our bench.

The cottage is cozy, charming and spotlessly clean. It has the open stud walls of a traditional Maine summer camp. The main living/dining/kitchen area has a two-story ceiling with picture windows facing the water, comfy couches and chairs, a large round dining table, and a state-of-art wood stove for chilly mornings. The kitchen is small but very well-equipped, and does include a dishwasher.
The bedrooms, one downstairs and two upstairs, are attractively furnished with comfortable beds and comforters. There is a full bathroom on each floor (shower downstairs, and shower with separate tub upstairs), and full-sized washer and dryer on the first floor. Window fans and two space heaters are provided.

Downstairs: living/dining area; kitchen (with dishwasher); master bedroom w/king bed; small den with couch, chairs and a 37' flat sceen TV and DVD player; bathroom with shower; washing machine & dryer. The wood stove provides more than adequate heat to the main living room for chilly days. Renters concur that it is easy to use.

Upstairs: Bedroom with 2 twins; bedroom with queen and one (1) twin; full bath with shower and separate tub.

You'll never want to leave this corner of paradise!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

Why the Owner Chose Southwest Harbor, ME, USA:
For years we have loved sailing among and exploring the islands, hiking in Acadia, and enjoying the unique beauty of the Maine coastline. Mount Desert has all these things, and Southwest Harbor is our favorite town on the island.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The house is quiet, cozy and comfortable with a fresh simplicity. The deck and picture windows allow us to watch the ever-changing harbor scenes. We can wander among the rocks and tidal pools, and watch the sea birds and ducks. And we're close to all that Acadia, Mount Desert, our favorite town, Southwest Harbor, and the ocean has to offer!
