Port Cottage is an exceptional rental experience.
This waterfront cottage has two stories. Each level features a king bed room, full bath, small kitchen, dining and living area, and deck/patio overlooking the harbor. The units are not connected by an interior staircase. An additional queen sofa sleeper and washer/dryer in the downstairs unit. This cottage is ideal for couples traveling together who want their own suites or parents with children.
***Many excellent reviews on another popular travel site***
Included are complimentary kayaks for use in the harbor, as well as beach and dock access.
The recreational, cultural, and dining offerings in this area are incredible with the fantastic Acadia National Park at your fingertips and Bar Harbor just minutes away by car or the FREE bus transportation system available just steps from the cottage door!
Port is nestled with three other cottages in a quaint residential neighborhood on the shore of Southwest Harbor, in the midst of an interesting variety of boating activities. From the decks, check out the ferry which goes to the Cranberry Islands multiple times a day from the Upper Town Dock (within view); lobstermen moor their boats right off our dock and sell their catch just a few docks down from ours. Across the harbor is Great Harbor Marina, home to commercial fishing boats, world class pleasure yachts during the summer, and the Hinckley charter fleet.
Acadia National Park, with its nearly 32,000 acres of land offers unequaled beauty and ocean front access. Over 55 miles of carriage trails were created and gifted to the people by John D. Rockefeller provide easy hiking and biking to the summits of nearby mountains with vista of unrivaled beauty.
In spite of all the physical beauty and charm of the 'Island' we hear most from our newer guests that they were most impressed with the friendliness of the community and the people of Southwest Harbor. Most are anxious to make a visit to Southwest Harbor an annual affair!
Complimentary high speed WIFI connection available in all cottages.
