An incredible ocean front location with amazing sunsets and easy access to the ferry.

  • 4 of 5

Unique seaside pastoral setting with gardens, lawn games and great porch and patio. Swan's is very quiet and beautiful island with lots of great places to explore. Fine sand beach, Carrying place, Irish Point, bouncing rocks, Noah's ballast and the light house!

The owners were very pleasant, accommodating and very gracious hosts.

We're a ferrry ride away from Acadia National Park and the much photographed Bass Harbor lighthouse. Swan's Island has its own beautiful lighthouse, harbor, walking paths, beach and freshwater quarry. There is a deposit of giant rocks called Noah's Ballast to visit. Walking the coastline and biking the roads is a great activity for kids and adults alike. Our home is located on Mackerel Cove. It is convenient to the ferry. We have a pebble beach. You can get into one of the 3 kayaks that are provided right from this beach and explore the coastline. We can provide you with a boat mooring. A ping pong table, croquet set, badminton set, and hammock are provided. We offer a large yard in which to enjoy these activities. There is a tent platform if your kids feel like sleeping outside. You can enjoy the sunsets from the inside porch or the patio. Perhaps you'd rather be on the waterfront cooking your lobster on the seaside fireplace. On chilly nights enjoy evenings next to the woodstove. There are books and games in the house. A beautiful million dollar library is only three quarters of a mile away. It boasts a porch open 24 hrs. a day with free WiFi. Open for several hours each day except for Mon., the library allows the use of computers, has a special section for kids, and gives borrowing privileges to visiting residents.
