STUNNING LOCATION BORDERING ACADIA - VIEWS - VIEWS - VIEWS

Manset House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Beautifully furnished and well maintained large, single-story, private oceanfront home situated at the end of a long driveway on seven acres of land. The house boasts 275 feet of coastal frontage and features unrivaled views of Acadia National Park's impressive mountains which rise up from the sea to the north. Spectacular 180 degree panoramic ocean, island, and mountain views from nearly every room.

The house is located a few miles from Southwest Harbor on Mount Desert Island, home to Acadia National Park. Our location is a 5 minute walk from the part of the park known as Seawall. The house is just a few steps from the ocean and sits on a low bluff protected from the sea by a granite seawall. It overlooks some of the best boating waters on the East Coast. Privacy, serenity, and astounding water views give you a wonderful sense of escape. Coastal Maine is magical. This house allows you to experience that magical feeling on a magnitude that will take your breath away.

Some of our guests spend time just sitting and admiring the awe inspiring views of Acadia and its array of wooded islands and majestic mountains. The rocky beach is only a few steps down from the large flat lawn, which provides an ideal spot for entertaining or simply taking in the extensive scenery. Sailboats race, lobstermen haul traps, and kayakers paddle by, all just a few feet east of the house.

There's a large master suite with fireplace, private bath, and a huge bay window overlooking the ocean views- you can see it from the raised bed! Up the hall, another bedroom has its own private bath and ocean views. The large living and dining room has another fireplace and features an arched bay window looking out at vast views of the ocean, islands, and mountains of Acadia National Park. Two more bedrooms share a bath and provide sleeping quarters for four others. There is a well equipped kitchen, a separate wet bar, and plenty of closets and storage areas.

Our coastal getaway offers convenient access to any recreational activity Mount Desert Island has to offer. We are located 5-10 minutes from ferry service to the Cranberry Islands and Swans Island, beautiful day trips that will give you other perspectives of the beauty of Acadia National Park. Another wonderful boat trip that we highly recommend leaves from Bass Harbor. The name of the business is Island Cruises. They offer the best nature cruise on the island. It is affordable, educational, and a memorable way to spend a few hours observing the spectacular beauty that Mount Desert Island and its surroundings has to offer. Fresh water swimming in beautiful lakes surrounded by mountains are also a short drive from our house. Bass Harbor and Bernard, two working fishing harbors, are just up the road. These harbors remain much as they were decades ago, and generations of fishermen fish the waters of Blue Hill Bay surrounding them. The most photographed lighthouse in New England, the Bass Harbor Light, is a five minute drive up the road, and offers amazing views of the granite coast, ocean, and islands that make Maine famous. I could go on and on about all the scenic wonders that surround our house at Seawall. I urge you to do some research and uncover the plethora of activities that Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park have to offer. If you are like all of our guests, you will want to return as there seems to be never enough time to explore all the options available in our area.

Our house provides the perfect environment to entertain guests comfortably, or, if you prefer, allows you and your family to escape to a world of coastal Maine serenity. This wonderful house has been in our family for over 70 years and has the feel of a home, not a rental property.

Please call for more information about our seaside house, available for rental May through October. We are currently booking for the 2014 season. We have quite a few annual tenants, so please book ahead as the house fills up rather quickly. Please inquire about special rates that we periodically offer for last minute bookings.

My brother and I own the house. Both of us are in the hospitality business. We constantly strive to make our house at Seawall a wonderful place to spend a vacation and as a result, we have many return guests.

The Owner purchased this house in 1958

My family has been coming up to coastal Maine in the summer for many generations. Our house at Seawall has been a gathering place for various members of our extended family for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, and family reunions. My brother and I own the house and have offered it for rent since 2003. Mount Desert Island is a wonderful place to spend the summer months and our family continues to enjoy time at Seawall when tenants are not in residence.

Our house at Seawall boasts some of the best views of Acadia on the island. My brother and I feel lucky to own such a special place and hope that you will come experience Acadia National Park while making our house your home base.

We stayed in this wonderful house for the first time in 1999 and have returned every summer since. Has to be the best view on the island. I highly recommend renting this house and plan to continue to do so for many years to come.

WOW! What an incredible spot. The house was everything they said it would be--and more! The views are spectacular; the house comfortable and inviting and stocked with everything you could possibly need. There are endless activities and many ways to explore the island; however, if relaxation is what you are looking for, you can just pull up an adirondack chair or take in the view from the expansive bay windows! We hope to retun year after year. Thanks for sharing your gem of a home!
