Somesville House Rental Photos and Description

The main house has one bedroom with a double bed, one bedroom with a bunk bed, one full bathroom, and a large room the incorporates the full kitchen, a dining table and a sitting area with a couch and a TV. There is also a working pellet stove perfect for Spring and Fall visitors The Bungalow has two twin beds (which can be pushed together) a sitting area and a full bathroom. The structures are conected by large deck with built in seats. The house is built on a slope so when your sitting on the deck you feel like your in the trees, thus, The Treehouse!

Extremely quiet surroundings, at end of a long drive belonging to Green Island. You'll have access to a launch area at the end of the drive to put in a kayak or canoe. The area is perfect for paddling around and exploring. There are two small islands to visit for a picnic or a swim, a colony of seals to watch (please try to respect their space) and if your lucky Bald Eagles and Opreys nesting and hunting in the area. This side of Mount Desert is often sunny when other parts are fog bound. The water is warmer here and more calm. Perfect for Kayaks and canoes.

Scott and Susan live at the top of the hill. If you have any questions they will do their best to help.

Scott Lawliss purchased this house in 1971

This property is perfect for one couple looking for a romantic getaway, two couples who want to vacation together but have a little seperation or a family. Well behaved dogs are always welcome.

The Treehouse is quiet and peaceful, the views are incredible, the architeture is unique and it's a kayakers paradise. A truly great place to explore Acadia and MDI.

Lovely trip at the charming tree house!

  • 4 of 5
The tree house on Mount Desert Island is definitely worth the trip. Situated on a mossy, tree covered hill a few short minutes from a small bay/cove on the island, this house and property were both perfect for a stay with our adventurous dogs. Although we were there quite late in the season for hiking and biking in Acadia, the cool mornings and evenings on the lovely deck and looking out on the water and trees were perfect for us. All the fun attractions at Acadia are a short drive, and Bar Harbor isn't far either. Southwest Harbor (our favorite town) was close also. The only thing we might suggest is coming a week or so earlier, as some attractions like the lobster pounds on the water and some restaurants were closed for the season. But, we had no major problems with the house and would certainly return. The master bed was comfortable and the shower's water pressure was great. The separate "guest" house is perfect for another couple or older children. Overall, we had a great time and hope to be back again!

Peaceful, secluded hideaway

  • 4 of 5
What a beautiful, peaceful place in the trees by the water! The main house had just the right amount of space with lots of windows and great views! The house was clean and had everything we needed to cook our meals. It was great having the extra guest house for family to use. The owner checked on us to make sure we had all that we needed. We enjoyed the seals in the cove, and were close to hiking, kayaking and driving to Bar Harbor. This is a true gem, and we hope to come back soon!

Owner's Response: Cheryl,

Thank you for the positive review! I cant figure out if you gave us four stars or five stars. The first page showed four but this page shows five. If five, thank you very much. If four, I'm curious why not five given your glowing write up.

Nonetheless, it is great review and we really appreciate it.

Cheers,

Scott

The main attraction of the Treehouse is its seclusion, its incredible views and its private access to the Western Bay. You'll have a access to a private launch area where you can launch kayaks, swim or lay in the sun. The kayaking in the area is relatively protected and among the best in the area. Western Bay is one of the 'go to' spots for for many of the kayak guides in the area. Alternatively, You are within an easy drive of all the MDI towns and the attractions of Acadia National Park. Southwest Harbor (7 miles) has good restaurants, a superb grocery and wine store, a supermarket, a bakery and a lovely harbor. Bar Harbor is larger and always busy. The stores, restaurants and bars stay open late. Acadia National Park is all over the island and offers incredible hiking, the carraige trails, the Park Loop Road, Jordan Pond House, Thunder Hole etc. etc. There are ponds nearby for fresh water swimming or fishing, kayak rentals nearby, and even riding stable in the park offers horses for hire. Golf and tennis in are available in Southwest Harbor and Bar Harbor and there are professional gardens to visit in Northeast Harbor. Whether you chose to spend the day kayaking in your back yard or exploring Mount Desert Island at the end of the day you'll return to the peace tranquility of the Treehouse down Green Island Lane.
