A newly remodeled multi-level family retreat with all the comforts of home located on the outskirts of downtown Southwest Harbor (less than 1 mile) with close proximity to the Seawall entrance to Acadia National Park. The harbor is a block away at the end of the street, and the Town Dock is just around the corner. Spacious living room, deck and back yard with wooded and pasture views. The deck is fully equipped (new Weber gas grill, dining table and umbrella, Adirondack chairs), and the back yard has a custom stone fire pit and picnic table to host your family campfire circles, storytelling and feasts of s’mores.
Explore quiet side trails on foot and bike and visit Echo Lake and Long Pond on warm days to swim or kayak. Hop on a national park shuttle within walking distance of our home that will take you to other spots within Acadia National Park (Cadillac Mountain, the famous carriage roads, the Jordan Pond House and more), as well as Bar Harbor and across the island. A great range of eateries are nearby from family style to bistro, a few within walking distance of our home and others in quaint downtown Southwest Harbor.
Our home includes a master bedroom with custom bath; two second floor guest bedrooms with one queen, and two twins; and a second floor den with new queen futon that folds out easily. A first floor sitting room is just off the kitchen includes a brand new fold out queen sofa for extra guests, doubling as a comfortable guest room. Spacious fully equipped kitchen (and beautifully remodeled in spring 2015!) and a dining room table that can expand to seat 10 comfortably with counter space for 2-3 more. Large family and living room connected to dining area with flat screen TV and new leather couches make this comfy for a large group.
The main house has two full bathrooms upstairs all recently remodeled and a first floor bathroom with spacious walk in stone shower.
An additional highlight of our home is a separate one bedroom apartment accessible by an indoor breezeway that provides a private retreat from the main house. It includes one queen bed in the bedroom and a fold out couch that can sleep two in the living room, plus a dining nook, separate apartment-sized kitchen and bathroom with shower.
A screen porch and new deck were added in 2018!
The house includes Wi-Fi and cable, laundry, a ping pong table and four bicycles for guest use as well as lobster pots and all the right tools to enjoy this Maine delicacy.
Responsive, friendly, superb local caretaker nearby!
