Car: Recommended

Short stone path to quiet, tidal Fernald Cove, perfect for swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding. Immediate access to Flying Mountain and St. Sauveur hikes or pedestrian-only road to beautiful Valley Cove, all part of Acadia National Park. 20-30 minute walk to town or a 5 minute drive.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We built this house for our own family, and we love it. We share a large, extended family home next door which is why we sometimes rent this one.

Why the Owner Chose Southwest Harbor, ME, USA:
Situated as it is between a quiet cove and Acadia National Park, this house makes you feel like you are 'away from it all.' And yet, it is a quick drive to the grocery store, the town of Southwest Harbor, pristine freshwater lakes, miles of bike trails and all that Mount Desert Island has to offer. Summer weather is ideal, the town is welcoming and lively, the local activities are many. This is a great spot for people who love an active outdoor vacation, on or off the water, or are just looking for a relaxing vacation surrounded by nature.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Sitting out on the deck looking at the view and watching the sailboats and the tides. Immediate access to Acadia National Park is a wonderful thing: out the back door, and the place is yours at any hour, and best of all, at off-hours. We enjoy biking to town and kayaking from Fernald Cove across to Northeast Harbor or up Somes Sound. Our favorite activity is swimming in nearby Echo Lake or Long Pond.
