Overview

Southwest Harbor House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 6)

With many delightful features including little nooks and window seats, this sweet Maine house in Southwest Harbor offers its guests a pleasant place to relax. Set in a pretty neighborhood, only steps away from the village center, and just a short distance further from the harbor, this lovely home, fringed with perennial gardens, also offers a convenient location.

Located on the 'quiet side' of the island, you are a few minutes from hiking Acadia's many trails, swimming in the gorgeous lakes, standing above the majestic fjord (Somes Sound), or walking along the harbor or sea shore. Many of the island's most scenic areas are less than 5 minutes away.

One can walk to the local restaurants(fine dining or casual), coffee house, an excellent local market with wonderful produce and quality meats, fine wine and cheese shop, pharmacy, post office, excellent library and quality gift shopping. One can also walk to the head of the harbor and take the ferry for lunch or a great brunch on cranberry island. Everything is so convenient and scenic here.

This house is a wonderful family home. Both children and adults appreciate the feeling and location of the house.

The Linens are high quality throughout the house. The kitchen is well-outfitted with high-quality cookware, and implements. Having been in the luxury yachting business for years, we have tried to anticipate our guests every need.

We have rented our home for many years through local agencies and have many repeat guests.

About The Owner

We have spent many years in the luxury yachting business as a chef and captain. We get a lot of enjoyment preparing the accommodations for our guests.

The Owner purchased this house in 2001

Why The Owner chose Southwest Harbor

We wanted to live in Southwest Harbor because it is a charming village, with a true working waterfront, and authentic feel. The town has everything without the T-shirt shops and other tourist traps. Being close to the Harbor was important to us, as well as, being able to walk to the village instead of getting in the car. We wanted to live on a quiet street.

What makes this house unique

Sitting in the window seat at the table for breakfast is truly a treat. Walking to the Causeway, and the Clairemont Hotel for gorgeous views of the Sound. Taking a drive to the Seawall, going to the tide pools, hiking and swimming. Then rewarding ourselves with a nice dinner out.

Guestbook comments from the owner

(from guestbook) We had a lovely week at Wesley House. We really appreciated the suggestions you made on where to go and used them often. It was nice to come back to the peace and quiet here at the house. We made good use of the well-stocked (implements) kitchen and even tried our hand at cooking lobster. (instructions were very helpful) The house is wonderful; great location - close to town and beautifully arranged. We especially enjoyed the window seats and great back porch. Thanks so much for making this house available to us, we had a fun and relaxing trip.

Lovely Stay at Wesley House

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at Wesley House (July 25-31, 2010). The photos do not do the house justice. We were charmed as soon as we walked in the door and found it to be perfectly suited for our group, which included grandparents, parents and two kids under 5. This was our first experience with vrbo, and it couldn't have been better. The instructions and advice left for us were very helpful, and the owners were readily available to answer any questions. We ended up following a number of the owners' recommendations, including a sailing trip on a Friendship Sloop, dinner at Abels lobster pound and local walks, all of which were great. Everything was well-maintained, the kitchen was well-stocked, and the extras (toys, books, stroller) were great. Our kids loved the rope swing out front, and the location was perfect for us - we didn't have to drive to the little shops, cafes, ice cream and playground - they were all just a short walk away. We loved the feel of Southwest Harbor and were very happy we ended up staying there. We would definitely recommend this property to a friend or relative.
