About the property

Sink into a large, sectional sofa after a day of swimming, hiking, boating or sightseeing in this new home. Nestled in one of the most beautiful parts of the country, this cottage is loaded with amenities including WIFI, a big-screen T.V, wrap-around deck with hot tub, iPod compatible stereo system, ceiling fans with remotes and air conditioning. The hot tub comes with the property and we ask renters to put in bromine daily. We are a pet-friendly house, but ask for pets not to be on our furniture. In lieu of an extra pet deposit, we ask for dog owners to be sure to vacuum after their pets:)

This cottage is within walking distance to Acadia National Park hiking trails and the ocean, and it is close to the nearby town of Southwest Harbor where plenty of restaurants and shopping are available. Stars light up the night sky, with the cool breeze that coaxes you to a sound sleep. It is truly a memorable vacation destination!

About Jennifer Higgins

My husband Dave and I have been coming to Mount Desert Island for years. I grew up coming to Maine as well in the summers and never tire of this wonderful location. We have three children and a dog, and plan to retire here when they are all through college! Email me with higgins222@verizon.net with questions!

Jennifer Higgins purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Jennifer Higgins chose Mount Desert Island

This home is built for comfort and has mostly one floor living. Mount Desert Island is a wonderful place to spend time in the summer and the climate and surroundings make you feel healthy and rejuvenated. It has a variety of amenities including hot tub, pool table and ping pong. A huge wrap around deck, ceiling fans with remotes and wall-to-wall carpeting in the bedrooms make it very comfortable.

What makes this cottage unique

In Southwest Harbor there is something for everyone! Young children enjoy exploring the rocky coastlines and hiking and swimming in our nearby lakes, adventurers enjoy hiking, boating and biking on amazing carriage trails, and older visitors like to drive throughout the park, golf and visit gardens and exhibits.

Perfect Secluded Maine Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay at this wonderful cottage. The hot tub on the deck surrounded by trees and the gas fireplace within the great room were the features we enjoyed most. The home was very clean and came well stocked with dishes and towels.

Nice home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our stay at this property. Pictures represent the house well and communication with Jennifer was clear and helpful. The hot tub was a HUGE hit, and the kids enjoyed pool and ping pong in the basement.

What a wonderful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time here with our 4 kids. The hot tub was the perfect way to end our long days of hiking. Jennifer was so quick to respond to any questions we had about the house. The kids (ages 3,8,11,14) loved everything about the house, as did we! Thank you!

Incredible House, Amazing Location, with lots of privacy

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house last June. Let me just say the pictures do not do it JUSTICE. The house was incredible and fully equipped with EVERYTHING you need. The owner was very friendly, easy going, and answered all my questions in a timely manner. The house is conveniently located near downtown SW Harbor, Acadia National Park, and The Causeway Golf Club (Beautiful 9 Hole Course on the Water!) The deck was my favorite part of this house. It is very spacious, equipped with a large grill and a HOT TUB! The hot tub was a great bonus and my friends and I used it daily in the early mornings. I would recommend this house to ANYONE visiting the area!

Great House, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time traveling to Maine, and we are so glad we chose this home for our vacation. The house is located in a quiet location, which is semi wooded. The house was very clean and well stocked with everything you need to make your stay enjoyable. The location is perfect for exploring Acadia National Park as well as the other Towns in the area, and is close to many restaurants. We spent most of our time exploring Acadia National Park and did a lot of hiking daily. It was nice to come back to the house and relax in the hot tub on the back deck. The house has a gas fireplace in the living room and we used it nightly, it was nice to relax on the couch watching TV and the fire. The owner is great to deal with, she always promptly answered any questions I had prior to our arrival. We will definitely be renting this house again when we come back to Maine. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone visiting the area.

Sure, we would love to come back !!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on a cold, rainy day:with 2kids, 2 teenagers, parents and grandparents. All of us loved this house ,(with garage, fireplace, hot tub plus bank beds for the kids), from the check in to the last minute. On the first evening the owner promptly answered our call with help how to start the fire place. The house is great for hot or cold weather, clean, beautiful and well maintained. Excellent location for even just hanging out and/or exploring by foot or on bicycles the beautiful surroundings and close by hiking trails. To all of the previous reviews I would say now, Yes and Amen. I would recommended this rental to my friends and family. Danuta from Las Cruces, NM
