Beautiful 3 bedroom oceanfront cabin on 4 acres, sits 50 yards from 310 feet of private beach on quiet Duck Cove on Swans Island , Maine. Modern cabin has 2 small bedrooms with 1 double bed each, a loft with a queen and a twin. One bathroom with separate bath house. Perfect beach to launch kayaks from onto Swans Island's world famous sea kayaking shores. Swans Island is a 40 minute ferry ride off Mount Desert Island, home of Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor and many more fun things to do. From our cabin hike to fresh water swimming at the Quarry Pond, to the crashing waves of Hero Beach. Bicycle friendly island with a newly opened Tea Room and the Fisherman's Coop where you can buy cheap lobster. Watch the windjammers sail by our beach into the working harbor with the Burnt Coat Lighthouse.
Our family has 3 children ages 18, 15 and 11. We live on a ranch in Colorado and get to visit Maine for about one week every year. The kids have grown up coming here every summer and have a great time swimming (in ocean or freshwater quarry pond nearby), hiking, biking, and eating.
Owner/Manager purchased this cabin in 2007
We found this beautiful little island when our youngest child was 6 weeks old, and love our little cabin. The quiet community and gorgeous scenery are also a plus. We chose Maine because of the beautiful coastline, remote atmosphere, and because we have good friends who live there.
We love the quiet, the tide pools and all the beauty of the ocean. We ride bikes, paddle in the ocean and eat lots of seafood. The trails, the fine sand public beach across the island, the quarry swimming hole, (a quick walk from the house), and the copious amounts of very affordable fresh seafood are great benefits to an already wonderful vacation experience.
Swan's Island is a short ferry ride off of Mount Desert Island, ME, home of Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor and many more fun things to do for the whole family. Beautiful, picturesque setting overlooking Duck Cove and Marshall Island. Pictures say it all!!! You need a high clearance vehicle due to the rough road.
