Property Description:

This waterfront cottage has an air of sophisticated relaxation - a true pearl imbedded along the shore at Great Harbor in Southwest Harbor! Settle into one of Starboard's numerous deck chairs with a good book, or take advantage of the sun on a cloudless summer day. View the boating activity on this pristine, "great" harbor, or join the activity when you launch a kayak at water's edge. Inside you'll find a home that's inviting, cheerful and unpretentious, and complete with everything you'll need to make your stay most enjoyable. The Island Explorer Shuttle stop is just steps away, as is the heart of the charming village of Southwest Harbor. Should your specific needs require even more space, consider renting any one or more of the neighboring Great Harbor properties - Starboard II, Port, or Topsail.

About this area:

Mt. Desert Island's second largest village, Southwest Harbor, features a charming Main Street with an appealing assortment of shops and restaurants. The neighboring village of Manset, which is along the southern shore of the harbor, tends to be rural in nature but features a number of excellent restaurants and boatyards, including Hinckley Yacht Yard and Morris Yachts, both of which boast an international reputation. If Bar Harbor is the 'gateway' to Acadia, Southwest Harbor is the gateway to Acadia's westside trails and attractions, including Seawall, Ship's Harbor, and Echo Lake, all between five and eight minutes from the village center.



This cottage was everything we hoped it would be. The 3 bedroom was bright and filled with light. The sliding door opened right on to the water and dock in the photo - Master bedroom had a large window overlooking the same view. Woke up to the amazing view each morning and simply enjoyed it drinking coffee in bed. SouthWest Harbor is a small quiet town where you can relax, and just 20 min drive to Bar Harbor where all the action is. This property even has kayaks and canoes to use if you feel like padding around the harbor - which we did in the evening when the water was calm. The beds all slept very nicely with thin down comforters for the perfect warmth. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a retreat with an amazing view.
