Overview

Somesville Townhome Rental Photos and Description

1st floor unit of a duplex, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

GARDEN COURT is a first-floor duplex with three bedrooms tucked away on a private lane off the Beech Hill Road in Historic Somesville. Our quiet rural setting offers children plenty of space to play outside, build a fort near the one our kids built many years ago or grab some down time to relax between Acadia adventures. Beech Mountain, located within Acadia National Park, is just 1 1/2 miles from your front door. The three best swimming/kayaking/canoeing lakes are right around the corner by car or bicycle. Farm-to-table freshness is just 1/3 mile from the home at Beech Hill Farm, an organic farmstand. Enjoy an evening at nearby Acadia Repertory Theater, drive 12 minutes into Bar Harbor, or head the other way and discover 'The Quiet Side'. Garden Court is perfectly situated to access all the wonders of our beautiful island and Acadia National Park.

$50 MULTI-WEEK DISCOUNT There is so much to see and do!

Our home comfortably accommodates up to 6 and is tastefully appointed and fully equipped. Garden Court is pet friendly.

About The Owner

My husband, John, and I have lived on Mt Desert Island for nearly 40 years. I landed my dream job seven years ago as head gardener at Thuya Garden, a beautiful English border garden in Northeast Harbor. John is a building contractor and has built many beautiful shingle style homes on the island. We love to travel in our Scamp Camper that we've nicknamed 'Shrimp Scampi'.

The Owner purchased this townhome in 1989

Why The Owner chose Somesville

We fell in love with this beautiful property and incredible location in 1989. John built Garden Court for my mother when she retired to Maine. We now rent the ground floor of her home and we live upstairs. Garden Court sits on one acre of land along a private driveway in a quiet neighborhood. Check out the beautiful sunsets from Beech Hill or hike Acadia National Park trails just one mile away. I'm happy to answer any questions you may have, please call 207-244-4090. Priscilla Hutton. Also, please feel free to call my good friend, Suze, who helps me with Garden Court (207)299-0207.

What makes this townhome unique

Great family location. Perfect for couples or friends traveling together. Easy access to our island's best swimming beaches and adventures into Acadia. Garden Court guests enjoy fishing and carry-in canoe/kayak launching privileges at exclusive Somesville Town Dock. Bring your mackerel gear and squid jigs!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The "C" family came and conquered MDI for the 4th straight year at Garden Court. I once again thank you.... for allowing us to stay here for our summer vacation. Between getting up to see the sunrise and jigging for squid till 1 am - I think I need a vacation now! Sorry we missed you at the Gardens - we just didn't make it over there this year. John - I owe you some squid next year - my family wolfed them all down. Bruce - good luck getting the mini-bike going. Jonah wants to ride it. We truly feel this is our home away from home and look forward to coming back."

Peace and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here while my daughter was on the island attending a week long camp. It was absolutely fantastic. Peace and quiet and far enough away from the road not to hear the traffic (which is light, anyway). Within easy driving distance to the Park and to Bar Harbor. The rooms are large enough, and the full kitchen and grill was great to cook in versus eating out (groceries are nearby in Southwest Harbor). There's plenty of hiking to do in the area within 10 minutes, and Beech Hill Farms is right down the road. It's also cool enough during the day and at night, the provided quilts and blankets were an added plus. The owner accepts pets (I brought my dog). Because he wouldn't take "No" from staying off the furniture, I didn't mind not getting back the full deposit, and if I travel to MDI again, would stay again if given the opportunity.

Terrific home and location on the island!

  • 5 of 5

Your home was perfect! My boyfriend, myself and our 2 dogs had a great stay here. It was very comfortable and cozy and had all the amentities you can ask for, perfect location to get to any of the harbors on the island and even the National Park. After a long drive, the wine was a great present as we came walking through the door, also thanks for leaving the light on! Thank you for helping with renting the place with only 3 days notice!! I was very thankful for that! Thanks again and we will definitely be back with some friends to show them around and will stay here indeed!
