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!
