This is a property that was bought and built by our great grandparents in 1932. Since then it has been passed down to the current generation of brothers who have been improving the house with modern amenities to make our guests and renters feel at home. We have been fortunate over the years to have had many 'long term' renters who come back year after year and once you stay at the house you will understand why they do.

Terry or Wes Spahr purchased this house in 1932

Our great grandparents were one of many families who back in the early 1900's decided to escape the summer heat of Philadelphia and head north to the beautiful island of Mount Desert. After searching the towns of Northeast and Bar Harbor for the best spot they could possibly find, they settled on the quiet town of Manset which lies on the south side of Southwest Harbor. They were able to buy a property where the famous Stanley Hotel once stood and built the beautiful house you see today.

Sea Ledges in our humble opinion has the best view on the island. With Southwest Harbor to the west, Somes Sound to the north, and the Cranberry islands and the Atlantic Ocean to the east, the view is absolutely incredible. Added to this relaxing atmosphere is the closeness of Acadia National Park without the craziness of Bar Harbor. Finally, very few houses offer 14 beds (big enough for two families!) and a deepwater dock with 2 moorings for your boats.

HAPPY 50TH!

  • 5 of 5
This was our 50th wedding anniversary and we were lucky enough to have all our family with us. This was their gift to us. There were 13 of us and we were so pleased with the home and the gorgeous view. It's so spacious and family friendly. Enjoyed the dock-caught a couple of fish! Picked enough blueberries for pancakes. Place was immaculate when we arrived. Ray Swan, Hapkinton, MA

COLUMBUS DAY 2006

  • 5 of 5
Columbus Day is a great time to be on the island. The leaves are just starting to change color and it is usually quite warm. Most of the stores are open-as are the restaurants. Lots of visitors on the island who are hikers and bikers.- Shelly and Ofer Wemirsoky, Boston, MA

Car: recommended

All of the above listed actvities are found within a short drive of our house. One may enjoy the nearby beauty of the carriage roads of Acadia either on foot or by biking and Echo Lake is just 10 minutes away for those who think swimming in the ocean is a bit too chilly. We do not provide boats of any sort for renters to use but Mansell Boat Rental Company is just down the road.
