Property description

Rooster Cottage has a detached garage and sits on an acre of land at the water's edge with a dock and mooring. The area is a quiet residential area within an easy bike ride to the town of Southwest Harbor (a little over 1/2 mile).
There is a Marina not far down Shore Road (Manset Yacht Service) where there are nice boats for rent (I have never rented from them, but I've never heard any complaints). Mt. Desert Island offers virtually everything for land and sea. There is nowhere like it.

Keywords: “Rooster Cottage” is a newly renovated & decorated simple cottage in the Manset Village of Southwest Harbor. Large windows and a deck extending the length of the cottage offers magnificent vistas of the harbor plus a deep water dock and mooring for a yacht up to 50 feet.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We have been coming to Mt. Desert Island since the 1980's and lived on the Island year round for nearly 6 years. After marrying in 2004 and having a child 2 years later we now come up for the summer months to our house on Goose Cove. We are active in the community and my wife is on the Board of Harbor House, the local Community Center. We have other rental properties in the area and are well known by both summer and year round residents.

Why the Owner Chose Southwest Harbor, ME, USA:
Mt. Desert Island offers us a wonderful place to do the things we like. We sail, tennis, swim in the lakes, hike the hundreds of miles of trails that Acadia National Park (3/4 of Mt. Desert Island) maintains. This is our summer life and where we want our daughter to grow up during the summers. I have older children who also come up for extended stays.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We actually do not live on this property, but to describe the benefits of this property is much like describing MDI (Mt. Desert Island). This property is unique in that there is a deep water dock that will accommodate sailboats at mean low water and a mooring weighted for 45'+ boats. I have a 36' sailboat drawing 5 feet and have on occasion left it there overnight without any thought of it touching bottom. If you are concerned, call me and I will provide exact depths. Here you will truly get a taste of Maine in a modern setting.
