Overview

Southwest Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 8

Rent our comfortable and spacious home, located on the Shore Road between the Hinckley and Manset Town docks. Perched atop a former warehouse, it is surrounded by a huge deck, and affords spectacular views of Southwest Harbor and the mountains of Acadia National Park.

The open kitchen/dining/living room area features picture windows and a massive hearth of local stone. Convenient to Acadia National Park, hiking, biking, kayaking, free island shuttle bus and all MDI attractions.

Things to do: Visit Acadia National Park: Hike the trails, bike the carriage roads, swim or fish or boat in the lakes, enjoy Park programs such as ranger-led nature hikes, watch the wildlife, or relax at the beach - this is one of the most spectacular Parks in the National Park System.

The hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor is a short drive across the Island, where you can enjoy an amazing variety of tourist activities appealing to any taste or budget.

Finally (this is our personal favorite), you can simply relax at home. Send the kids down to fish or out to play in the yard. Sit back on our deck and enjoy the view. Watch the boats in the harbor, enjoy the play of light on the mountains of the Park or the islands offshore, see if you can spot a bald eagle soar overhead, and let yourself unwind.

What's this about a warehouse?: Our house was once a commercial property. It was, at various times, a boat-builder's shop and a seafood distributorship. There are two large warehouse bays in which we store cars and boats (big boats!) in the winter, and our house is built over one of the bays. However, it is no longer used commercially.

Spacious Water View Home with Large Deck.

  • 5 of 5
My family of four and our friends, another family of four, just spent a wonderful week at this home. It is located on the quiet side of the island putting it about 35 minutes from most of our activities in Acadia. For us that seemed plenty close. Good eating choices and other resources were close by. The property is located at the end of a driveway that passes by another home. It is situated across the street from the harbor where a public dock is located and offers wonderful views of the harbor that are partially obstructed by trees in the summer time. There is a large yard with a tree house where the kids can play. Parking is behind the house off the street which was nice as we had bicycles mounted on the car. In short, it is a nice private location with plenty of resources nearby and just a short drive to the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor and Acadia.

The house itself provided plenty of room for the eight of us without feeling cramped in the least. Each family had its own bathroom with towels and there is also a nice washer and dryer. The main living area adjacent to the kitchen has two tables, end to end, which provides space and seating for 8-10 people. The kitchen was well stocked with an electric stove, dishwasher, drip coffee maker, pots and pans, and utensils. We were able to easily eat in for breakfast and cook the occasional dinner as well. As others have noted it is located on top of a type of garage space for working on boats. There was no activity while we were visiting. In fact, the property offers a nice degree of privacy and the whole area is quiet enough to hear a pin drop at night. While the decor is a bit dated, everything is clean and in good working order.

The deck is quite large and wraps around the house, the main access to the house is off the deck and it sits about 15 feet off the ground. There were two flights of stairs to go from the ground level driveway to the main entrance. It was one of my favorite features as it offered great views of the harbor, there was a traditional wooden picnic table and 4 plastic chairs for seating. I recommend wearing shoes on it, as it is older and the stain is peeling in some areas. I did spend many hours drinking coffee and relaxing on the deck!

The owner was very responsive and easy to communicate with by email and telephone. I felt the information in the listing was accurate.

We enjoyed are stay in comfort and would definitely stay there again!

Great Stay in Paradise

  • 4 of 5
We had a great time at your comfy cabin in Southwest Harbor. The views from the living room and deck are amazing. The location is great too. Its an easy walk to the dock, the harbor, and a great little restaurant. The home is a bit quirky in its layout and decor, but that makes it more fun. The only caviat is that there were a couple areas in need of repair- the roof leaked in one spot and the deck needs some new planks. These were really minor issues, though, and may have been repaired since our stay. All told, we loved it and would definitely go back.

Owner's Response: Re the leaky roof: We had a roof replacement done (poorly) a couple of years ago, after which leaks began to develop. At the moment, we are in negotiations with the contractor for a remedy. It will be fixed by the 2011 season.

Tried to read a book on the porch but was unable to take my eyes off the beautiful views. Even at night the views are great. We kayaked from the bottom of the driveway of this house right into the water. House is big and a bit quirky which made it fun.

We will be back

We rented this house for my parents,(who are older),my husband and self for one week. This was spectacular in comfort, beauty and accessibility for surrounding Bar Harbour, Acadia,shuttle,and ferry to cranberry Islands. The everyday view is gorgeous and the house itself has all the comforts of being away from home. The owners were very kind in sending pictures to me and explaining extra information, especially since my mother is legally blind. A good time for all of us and a big thank you to them!

Our house is located on the Manset Shore, in the town of Southwest Harbor on the 'Quietside' of Mt. Desert Island. The town dock is just yards from our driveway, and there you can board the free Island Explorer shuttle bus that serves the entire Island, catch a ferry to the Cranberry Islands, or fish for mackerel (we provide fishing poles). You can launch your kayak at the foot of the driveway, or search for sea glass or shells at low tide. The Manset Shore is a working waterfront, with the Hinckley Yacht Service yards a few blocks away, and you can observe the activities first-hand. There are several restaurants within a few blocks of the house. The town of Southwest Harbor is less than 2 miles away, with restaurants, shops, museums, kayak and bicycle and boat rentals, churches, a drug store, banks, and a post office, Acadia National Park is just minutes away, with its mountains, shoreline and lakes.

Other Activities: kayaking, whale watching, hiking
