Property description

Manset Rock Cottage is located on the quiet side of Mount Desert Island (MDI), home to Acadia National Park (ANP). ANP is full of spectacular spots and activities including: sunrise on top of Mt. Cadillac, visiting Thunder Hole & Otter Cliffs, biking the carriage paths, hiking park trails, boating up Somes Sound, golfing at Kebo Valley, shopping and dining in Bar Harbor, day trips to the islands, swimming and canoeing on Long Pond, popovers at the Jordan Pond house.


Manset Rock: The property includes two homes (the Main House and The Cottage), a boat house, private dock and woodland trail. It overlooks beautiful Southwest Harbor, the entrance to Somes Sound, inner and outer islands, as well as a the western and eastern mountains of Acadia National Park. Perfectly located for sunrise or sunset views, or for simply relaxing and watching the elegant Hinkley Yachts, racing sailboats or local fishing fleet come and go. A few steps out the door and you can catch the Cranberry Cove Ferry to the outer islands or the Island Explorer - Acadia's free shuttle that offers Mount Desert Island visitors and residents free transportation to hiking trails, carriage roads, island beaches, and in-town shops and restaurants.

Manset Rock Cottage: Original to the property, Manset Rock Cottage was transformed into a charming guest house in the 1960's. It is a one story wood-shingled ranch style home with private sleeping loft. It includes an extra large back deck nestled at the intersection of woodland and ocean view with no neighbors in sight, and a seasonal wildflower garden. Directly on the water, you can access the private pebble beach via a short walk along the deer path or by the Main House. The Barn has 4 bedrooms that sleep 7, a large combined living/dining room, and a full kitchen with breakfast nook. There is a wood burning fireplace in the living room. The Cottage features a gas grill, high speed wireless Internet, cable TV, DVD, deck, and outdoor furniture. Appliances include a washer, dryer, dishwasher, electric range, refrigerator, and microwave. Great for the small family or to add to Manset Rock Main House for extra guests.

Manset Rock Main House - HA # 256323: The main house built in 1903 is a classic oceanfront wood shingled 'cottage,' with ocean views from nearly every window, complete with a full covered wrap around porch, located on the water overlooking a secluded pebble beach. The 3-story home has 6 bedrooms that sleep up to 11, a large living room with panoramic ocean view, a formal dining room with seating up to 14, and a full kitchen and walk-in pantry.
