Why Janet Strong chose Southwest Harbor
We live next door, year round, when the house came up for sale we purchased it knowing the place would make a great vacation home.
What makes this House unique
Completely upgraded including the kitchen and bathrooms. Pretty off the road location, super view of Acadia mountains and harbor. The house is bordered by a field, lined by woods. Being situated on a hill provides stunning views. The house has simple lines, a nice flow. Comfy furniture in the den and living room are great spots to read or just enjoy the view through big windows, you may see deer in the back field, an Osprey in the sky and always fishing or sailing boats in the harbor.

Convenient to the town of Southwest Harbor where there is a little of everything; Eateries, bakery, groceries, wine and cheese, liquor store, craft beers, retail shops, hardware store, gas, gym, an information center and the post office. Nearer, less then 3 mins. by car, is the Manset Town Dock offering a boat launch and fishing dock. Drive 10 minutes to swim in Echo Lake. The Seawall Picnic Area, bordered by the ocean is a bird watchers delight and 2 Acadia trails - (Wonderland and Ship Harbor) wind down to pink granite shores all just down the street. Bass Harbor Headlight, the only lighthouse on the island, is a 15 minute drive!
Great destinations for cyclers too.
