Overview

Southwest Harbor Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bath, sleeps 4 with supplemental sofa couch for two. 6 maximum

Our quiet, newly built summer cottage on the western slopes of Freeman Ridge in Southwest Harbor, Maine at the end of a private road, is the perfect place to enjoy your vacation in Acadia National Park on lovely Mount Desert Island. The cottage has complete privacy, located in a peaceful, forested surroundings. Built on a ledge, the cottage has a tree top view of the woods and there are keyhole glimpses through the tall spruce of Bernard Mountain to the north and Swans Island to the southwest. The tall forest surrounding the cottage give an expansive treehouse feel to a modest cabin with a small footprint. Like most summer cottages in Maine, Granite Ledge is a single construction building and designed for seasonal use. Built to the owner's specifications, the cabin's framing and roof are made from lumber harvested and milled from the property. All appliances are brand new, floors are finished hardwood, giving a luxurious feel to a rustic experience.

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we pulled up to the cabin we knew it was going to be an amazing week. The house is immaculately clean, every detail is taken care of, and the mountain views are breathtaking. There was nothing the owners didn't think of. It was beautifully decorated, so simple and just nestled in the forest. Thank you so much Laura and family for a magnificent stay. The location is just a minutes drive from the lovely quiet village of southwest harbor, and about 20 minutes to the Acadia loop. Best house and location we could have asked for for our first trip to Maine with our two young kids. We will be back!

Map

Car: necessary

The privacy and seclusion of Granite Road is ideal for couples, including honeymooners who want complete privacy or for families wanting a peaceful, forested surroundings, yet we are conveniently close to locations within Acadia National Park and the ocean. We are about five minutes by car from the center of the village of Southwest Harbor where you will find grocery, hardware and drugstores, an excellent small town library, attractive shops and a number of good restaurants catering to a variety of tastes and styles. Or take the “back way” through the woods on foot (or bicycle) which will take about 15 minutes. Bar Harbor is about 25 minutes away by car or 45 minutes on the free, publicly supported Island Explorer Bus Service which leaves from a number of locations in and around the village and covers most of the Island including many of your destinations within Acadia National Park.

Please note: Granite Road is a new private road that is not listed on Google Maps or Mapquest.

There is a bar with three stools overlooking the kitchen for additional seating.

The deck includes seating and a gas grill for outside summer cooking and entertaining. We provide DSL service so you can check your e-mail and get the news and weather. We have found that most cellphones work from this location and so we do not provide landline telephones.
