We are natives of MDI with 3 businesses that we operate. In addition to our eight rental properties, Steve is a master electrician with 6 or more employees and we operate a real estate firm with 6 agents. Our 2 children are grown and 4 grand children are almost grown. We enjoy boating the Maine coast, kayaking the local waters and walking the trails here on MDI. Our home away from home is Sarasota FL where we purchased a rental property at the Palm Bay Club on Siesta Key. For a warm retreat in the cold of winter reserve a vacation at our Fl condo.
Margo Stanley purchased this house in 1990
Our location on the water on the quiet side of MDI is only 25 minutes from the hustle and bustle of down town Bar Harbor on a day when the cruise ships are in. Entrances to the park are within 2 miles and Thurston's for lobster and Back Beach are within 1/2 a mile. The village of SW Harbor is just 3.6 miles from Bernard Rd where you'll find shops, banks, art shows on the green and restaurants.
We loved the quiet village atmosphere of this working waterfront location. Beautiful spot within walking distance to Post Office and a local lobster pound restaurant. The home was immaculate and lovely. Would gladly return.
Winter or summer, this lovely home situated Bass Harbor is the place to stay. Experience the amenities of a year round home by the sea, but enjoy the lovely views and fresh sea air right outside your door! This lovingly maintained home is home away from home.
In the summer, this classic Maine fishing village is picturesque, and busy, yet quaint enough to walk around the corner to enjoy fresh lobster at a local lobster pound.
Even in winter, there are restaurants open in the area, and the library is a great place to relax on a cold winter day. The cottage is near many of the national park areas, and it is an easy drive to the Bar Harbor area if one likes a an expanded trip to the park.
Having stayed at Homeport winter and summer, I would encourage anyone to experience a stay for a truly relaxing and enjoyable experience!
A spotlessly clean, well-stocked, cozy home–away–from–home, overlooking the harbor in a beautifully landscaped cul–de–sac. Hear the clanking of boats and the squawking of gulls. Take a kayak out or read a book on the deck and enjoy the view. Convenient to all local activities and the free shuttle bus. You will also not find a more accommodating set of owners!
All we expected - clean, airy, comfortable and on the water.
My husband and I have rented Homeport for three years now, usually in late September/early October. The house is clean and comfortable, with a large master bedroom on the first floor and a second floor bedroom with lots of windows overlooking the harbor. The kitchen is stocked with good pots and pans, large enough to eat in at the counter, or at the dining table in the alcove. There is WIFI and a telly. Bass Harbor is away from the chaos of Bar Harbor (cruise ships) but close enough to The Park to enjoy the walks and lakes. Thurston's Lobster Pound is walking distance and has the best lobster around. And blueberry pie. And adequate veggie burgers (I am a vegetarian...my husband eats fish). There is nothing sweeter than sitting on the deck in the late afternoon and watching the boats come in and go out. It really is a bit of heaven.
We have stayed on MDI many times and really liked this location. We walked to Back Beach and Thurston's wharf, a favorite restaurant for lobster We had the owners son bring us fresh lobster to cook at the home. He ties up right at the dock in front of the house. The kids loved the row boat and kayaks. Cafe Dry Dock and Sea Biscuits were great eateries in SW Harbor. The house was clean and well equipped. We'll be back.

Fine dining is in all of our villages, SW Harbor, Bar Harbor, Northeast Harbor and Tremont. Shopping at T Shirt Shops and designer brands are available. The Gilley Museum of bird carving is located in SW Harbor. The Abbe is in Bar Harbor and there are several others to explore. Art fairs and musical groups are always available for your enjoyment.
