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.

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.
