OCEANFRONT (500'), 5 ACRES, COUNTRY HOME WITH SPECTACULAR VIEWS

Swans Island House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 8 in beds

Quiet, serene living in country home over looking the ocean. Spectacular 180 degree view includes to the North and Northeast: Blue Hills, Bass Harbor and Mount Desert Island; to the East: Placentia and Goff Islands; and to the South: Frenchboro. At night watch the blinking lights from Lighthouses at Bass Harbor and Frenchboro. Day time enjoy the lobster boats and porpoises.

During the day cruise ships and sailing vessels from 30' sloops to ocean going racers with masts 150' tall, pass by on their way to/from Eggemoggin Reach and Bar Harbor areas. Large centrally heated home in excellent condition with 25' x 20' composite deck. 250 feet of gentle sloping back yard to ocean; several pebble beaches amongst the rocky shore for beach cookouts, launching kayaks; acres of mowed fields wonderful for outdoor activities. Large picnic table and plenty of chairs on deck.

'Thanks for the opportunity to use your wonderful property. The view is truly magnificent and the yard wonderful. Swans is a special place. Are you renting the property now for next summer? Please let us know. There is something about that island that makes for very special vacations for this family.' 2008 Renter

'Just wanted to thank you for letting us share your lovely cottage. What a fantastic location. It was just what we needed to unwind from our fast paced lives. The sun rise was so beautiful from the beach. We saw a whale one morning, we had a pair of porpoise' visit almost daily & of course the seals.' 2008 Repeat Renter (5 Years)

'Thank you for renting your lovely Swans house to us again. We had a fine week. One night we turned off all lights and watched a lightning storm over the bay. Another we watched the full moon come up over the bay. And a third day we witnessed a sailboat race across it. My wife had her annual lobster (she claims they are never as good anywhere else) and I ate donuts from the Bake Shop. We would like to return the corresponding week next year if the house is for rent again.' 2008 Repeat Renter (5 Years)

RELAXATION HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved this place!!!!!! This was our first time visiting Swan's Island and definitely picked the right place to stay. We adored everything about it! If you want a total escape in an idyllic setting and to be left alone in peace and quiet this is the place to stay. From waking up to the beautiful sun rises to cuddling up next to the fireplace. This was the perfect family place. My three year old son loved running around in the large back yard and picking shells on the sea shore on the property. This was a large house and plenty of room for the family. My favorite place to sit in the house was in the living room on the couch in front of the large windows overlooking Bar Harbor. Highly recommended

A WHOLE LOT OF HEAVEN!

  • 5 of 5
Whether I am there with friends or family (or even all by myself) this home on Swan's Island is a remarkable getaway for rest and relaxation. Everyone gets to pick out their own bedroom and there are plenty of bathrooms to share. The kitchen is well equipped and serving any meal is a pleasure. But the real beauty of this place is when you walk out onto the deck at any time of day or night, sunshine, fog, or rain - it is all magical! But if you must venture forth from the property, the walks, rides, or drives are equally compelling. Everyone waves to you... No really, everyone! I recommend this rental to all ages!

WONDERFUL PLACE TO BE!

  • 5 of 5
Swan's Island is a wonderful retreat and this property made it that much more special. Beautiful view of the water from the deck, living room and dining room with sailboats occasionally sailing by. A small beach with the house, or a quick ride to Sandy Beach. Wonderful seafood, fresh lobster (which is a definite part of Maine).. The owners have clearly taken care of this property, with updates to the kitchen and other parts of the house (we were there two summers prior). If you want a special, quiet, peaceful Maine vacation experience, this is a great place to be.

AWESOME RENTAL

  • 5 of 5
My family and I have stayed 5 times at this rental. The home is charming, there is no better view anywhere in the world ! Sitting on Ky and Jake's deck reading and gazing at the ocean, watching lobster boats and sailboats was very relaxing. The yard is fabulous for family baseball, volleyball and other sports. I would definitely recommend this rental. We hope to go back next summer.
