Property description

Loft apartment over a small barn, on a Midcoast Maine island, close to Acadia National Park. The apartment is fully furnished, provides comfortable accommodations for a single, or couple. It is a fifteen minute walk to the shore. The property is located in the woods on 5 acres on one of Maine's coastal islands, Swan's Island. The apartment is a seasonal rental, available from mid-May through September, by the night (two nights minimum weekends - Friday&Saturday), with a weekly rate available on request.

The rental is on the north side of Swan's island, in an area known as 'Island Retreat'.The apartment overlooks a large clearing, and is about a short walk from the shore. The area is on/near several hiking trails.

There are no moose, bear, porcupines, skunks, or poisonous snakes on Swans Island.

There is no public camping on the island.

Swans Island is accessible by Maine State DOT Ferry, from Bass Harbor. In the summer, most days, there are six round trips daily. There is no public transportation on Swans Island, bicycling is a challenge due to the terrain. The island is about 7,000 acres in extent, with about twenty miles of roads.

Dog friendly: owners and pets welcome with prior approval. Dog rules: must not share the bed - crate trained/wag bag, vaccines current, non- destructive, never left alone in apartment.
