Southwest Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

6 bedrooms, 2 full/2 half bathrooms, sleeps 11

Manset Rock is located on the quiet side of Mount Desert Island (MDI), home to Acadia National Park (ANP). ANP is full of spectacular spots and activities including: sunrise on top of Mt. Cadillac, visiting Thunder Hole & Otter Cliffs, biking the carriage paths, hiking park trails, boating up Somes Sound, golfing at Kebo Valley, shopping and dining in Bar Harbor, day trips to the islands, swimming and canoeing on Long Pond, popovers at the Jordan Pond house.

Manset Rock: The property includes two homes (The Main House and The Cottage), a boat house, private dock and woodland trail. It overlooks beautiful Southwest Harbor, the entrance to Somes Sound, inner and outer islands, as well as a the western and eastern mountains of Acadia National Park. Perfectly located for sunrise or sunset views, or for simply relaxing and watching the elegant Hinkley Yachts, racing sailboats or local fishing fleet come and go. A few steps out the door and you can catch the Cranberry Cove Ferry to the outer islands or the Island Explorer - Acadia's free shuttle that offers Mount Desert Island visitors and residents free transportation to hiking trails, carriage roads, island beaches, and in-town shops and restaurants.

The Main House: The main house built in 1903 is a classic oceanfront wood shingled 'cottage,' with ocean views from nearly every window, complete with a full covered wrap around porch, located on the water overlooking a secluded pebble beach. The 3-story home has 6 bedrooms that sleep up to 11, a large living room with panoramic ocean view, a formal dining room with seating up to 14, and a full kitchen and walk-in pantry. The house features fine crafted woodwork throughout, ample window seats, breakfast nook, butler's pantry, woodburning fireplace, high-speed wireless internet & computer, gas grill, cable TV, DVD, deck, private dock, hammock and outdoor furniture. Appliances include a answering machine, fax machine, dishwasher, electric range, freezer, microwave, refrigerator, washer, and dryer.

Manset Rock Cottage - #396940: Original to the property, The Cottage was transformed into a charming guest house to The Main House in the 1960's. It is a one story wood-shingled ranch style home with private sleeping loft. It includes an extra large back deck nestled at the intersection of woodland and ocean view with no neighbors in sight, and a seasonal wildflower garden. Directly on the water, you can access the private pebble beach via a short walk along the deer path or by the Main House. The Barn has 4 bedrooms that sleep 7, a large combined living/dining room, and a full kitchen with breakfast nook. There is a wood burning fireplace in the living room. The Barn features a gas grill, high speed wireless Internet, cable TV, DVD, deck, and outdoor furniture. Appliances include a washer, dryer, dishwasher, electric range, refrigerator, and microwave.

BEAUTIFUL SECLUDED WATERFRONT HOME

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed here with 9 adults and our new baby, including my in-laws and my own parents. Needless to say, we needed space for everyone's peace and privacy. This home was perfect. The wrap-around porch was a great place to relax and watch the yachts and lobster boats head out of Southwest Harbor. The porch also gave us great views of the sunrise over Acadia's mountains (as do three of the six bedrooms). The large picture windows in the living room offered the same views and the window seats were great spots for reading or napping. Almost all of us gathered around the living room fire each night. The kitchen was amazingly well stocked and very clean. We cooked dinner at the house every night with everyone fitting comfortably around the large dining room table.

The house is about 2 miles from the town of Southwest Harbor. We really loved this town. It has a nice gourmet market, a wine & cheese shop, a few clothing boutiques, a very affordable nine hole golf course right on the water, and a fantastic library--although the house has a formidable library in its own right--so you might never feel compelled to venture to the town library.

The owner and the caretakers were very responsive and helpful. We would definitely stay at the house again.

CHARMING WATERFRONT HOME

  • 4 of 5
Ten of us stayed for a family reunion. This charming old family home has a spectacular view of Southwest Harbor, lots of privacy, but is not far from all you want to experience. Good restaurants in SW Harbor and beyond. We loved walking out on the long dock and the rocks to take photos. Sailboats nearby added lots of charm. Well equipped kitchen, two refrigerators. The furnishings are cozy, including window seats. TV, computer, WiFi, games and books . . . Two full baths and two half baths. Easy access to the rest of the island without having to deal with crowds of tourists. Owners were very easy to work with.

PERFECT MT DESERT VACATION SPOT

  • 5 of 5
I fell in love with this property when I first saw the picture; I was not disappointed when I got there. The house was very clean and comfortably furnished. Everyone in our party repeatedly said, "This is a great house."
The owner was very attentive, and contacted me very quickly.
I would go back to this house in a minute!
Southwest Harbor is the "quiet side" of the island, but more action is not far away.
This is a fabulous property. Don't hesitate to book!
