Property description

As you walk into 'Port's' main level, you are consumed by panoramic views of the harbor. Step out onto the deck and you can smell the ocean air and feel as though you can reach out and touch the boats in the harbor.

The open floor plan allows you to soak in the views whether you're cooking in the kitchen, relaxing in the sitting area or dining at the table with family and friends. The galley-style kitchen has lots of prep and cupboard space and stainless steel appliances. Reminiscent of a yacht, 'Port' has crisp white walls and natural wood accents, including exposed beams and natural wood ceiling, To top it off, this area is tastefully furnished with comfy couches and leather accents. The upper level offers an open loft bedroom with double bed and overstuffed chair. And in the lower level you'll find the master bedroom with hot tub on private patio overlooking the harbor, a full bath with granite sink, laundry and a second bedroom with twin bed plus a twin trundle.

Come to the 'Quiet Side': 'Port' is situated on the shore in the quaint village of Southwest Harbor. From 'Port' you can take a stroll into town and explore unique shops, fabulous restaurants, museums, antique shops, an oceanarium, and much more.. Rent a boat locally or take the water taxi to explore the waters and islands surrounding Mount Desert Island. The condo is also located just minutes from world-famous Acadia National Park, which offers crystal-clear lakes, sandy and rocky beaches, rocky shorelines, beautifully maintained hiking and biking carriage trails, mountains to hike or drive, and so much more. Opportunities for whale watching, boat rentals and charters, fishing, swimming, golf, tennis, shopping, kayaking, hiking, and many more are within minutes.

Away from the Crowds, Close to Everything!: Situated on the 'quiet side' of Mount Desert Island, you can enjoy the real Downeast Maine away from the crowds, but still be within minutes of world-famous Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. You can explore all that the park has to offer by yourself, take a guided tour or take Mount Desert Island's bus, the 'Island Explorer', available to the public free of charge! Destinations include just about anywhere you want to go on the island. There are a number of outfitters located on Mount Desert Island that rent bicycles and kayaks as well. Just fifteen miles to Bar Harbor and you can enjoy a wide variety of activities from the most relaxed to the most rigorous, dining for all tastes and budgets, and shopping in many unique shops and galleries. Regardless of your interests, 'Port' and the surrounding attractions are sure to make for a fulfilling vacation!

Come in the Fall-Beautiful Foliage, lower rates! : The months of September and October are a fabulous time to come to 'Port'. The rates are lower, the crowds have left, the weather is comfortable and the foliage is spectacular!!! Acadia National Park is rated among the best places in the United States to view fall foliage!

Have school-age kids but still want to avoid the crowds? Why not come to 'Port' in June!
Enjoy a picnic on Windward Shore's Private Dock. Watch the activity in the harbor as working lobster and fishing boats mingle with exquisite yachts. When the sun sets behind you, experience a sight unparalleled as the boats in the harbor are illuminated...gorgeous!
