Southwest Harbor House Rental Photos and Description
House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
Situated on a quiet private road...
This classic island cottage is surrounded by a beautiful yard and gardens, perfect for sunning, dining (a grill is available for cookouts on warm summer evenings), or relaxing.
Conveniently located a short 10-minute walk to the beach and downtown, Kinfolk Cottage is close to restaurants, shops, galleries, and all the ambiance Southwest Harbor has to offer. It is also on the route of the Island Explorer, offering easy access to guests who want a guided tour of Mt. Desert Island.
For those with a penchant for Down East history—as many who visit Southwest Harbor have—the cottage was commissioned by Mrs. Loren B.T. (Catherine) Johnson, and built in 1925–1926 as an overflow cottage for her summer guests. In 1961 Herbert and Gladys Curtis bought it from Clarence Hall, a Philadelphia attorney who summered on Mount Desert Island for many years.
The Curtis’ daughter and son-in-law, Dorothy and George Vose, took ownership in 1969. Forty years later, the Vose family still enjoys and lovingly maintains the property.
