TASTEFUL MOUNTAIN COTTAGE WITHIN WALK TO OCEAN TOWN AND ACADIA

Southwest Harbor Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-9)

Sink into a large, sectional sofa after a day of swimming, hiking, boating or sightseeing in this new home. Nestled in one of the most beautiful parts of the country, this cottage is loaded with amenities including WIFI, a big-screen T.V, wrap-around deck with hot tub, iPod compatible stereo system, ceiling fans with remotes and air conditioning. The hot tub comes with the property and we ask renters to put in bromine daily. We are a pet-friendly house, but ask for pets not to be on our furniture. In lieu of an extra pet deposit, we ask for dog owners to be sure to vacuum after their pets:)

This cottage is within walking distance to Acadia National Park hiking trails and the ocean, and it is close to the nearby town of Southwest Harbor where plenty of restaurants and shopping are available. Stars light up the night sky, with the cool breeze that coaxes you to a sound sleep. It is truly a memorable vacation destination!

My husband Dave and I have been coming to Mount Desert Island for years. I grew up coming to Maine as well in the summers and never tire of this wonderful location. We have three children and a dog, and plan to retire here when they are all through college!

Jennifer Higgins purchased this cottage in 2008

This home is built for comfort and has mostly one floor living. Mount Desert Island is a wonderful place to spend the summer and the climate and surroundings make you feel healthy and rejuvenated.

In Southwest Harbor there is something for everyone! Young children enjoy exploring the rocky coastlines and hiking and swimming in our nearby lakes, adventurers enjoy hiking, boating and biking on amazing carriage trails, and older visitors like to drive throughout the park, golf and visit gardens and exhibits.

EVERYTHING WE HOPED FOR

  • 5 of 5
Comfortable, very attractive house with a large deck looking out at forest. It was private, quiet, very convenient to Southwest Harbor, grocery shopping, Acadia. We discovered a way to walk into town over the causeway and through a forest path. There is every kind of glassware you might want, a
large fireplace in front of which it's lovely to sit at night, an Acadia mountain right down the road. We really liked SW Harbor, and this house made our 3 weeks even more of a pleasure. Owners were quickly responsive to questions and helpful, even leaving a vase of flowers to greet us. We would be happy to rent this house again.

PERFECT FALL VACATION!!

  • 5 of 5
My wife, six month old daughter, myself and our pug traveled to Maine for the first time and we had an amazing time! The house was perfect for us. The fireplace made the living room nice and cozy. The hot tub under the stars made the nights sparkle. The kitchen was stocked with utensils, a few things of tupperware to store leftovers and plenty of glasses to fill with your favorite libation. The location was great too! There is a grocery store about a mile away from the house, which made getting supplies a snap. An entrance to Acadia National Park is about a mile in the other direction from the store. I highly recommend hiking the trail right off Fernald Point Road. When you get to the top of Flying Mountain, you are rewarded with spectacular views!

On a personal note, we're from Long Island, NY and just happened to stay here during Hurricane Sandy. We had a tough couple of days trying to reach our families but finally did get through and everyone was okay. Initially we weren't sure if we were going to be able to make it back to our home (as it didn't have power and reports weren't looking too good). When I emailed Jen, the home owner of this house we were renting in Maine, she was very kind and offered to work with us staying longer if needed. It's that kind of consideration and compassion that let's me know the owners of this house are kind and genuinely awesome people.

If you're looking for a house in the Bar Harbor area that offers great amenities, is close to everything, and has owners that make the process thoroughly enjoyable...this is your house!!

PERFECT HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
We had a group of 8. The open floor plan and vaulted ceiling living "great" room made the house feel very spacious, yet homey. We loved the promixity to the numerous hiking trails and Southwest Harbor. After a long, active day outside, the fireplace and hot tub were priceless...especially with a starry sky. I have stayed in numerous timeshare and vrbo rentals and by far, this house provided the most "like home" essentials. The owners were wonderful throughout the time before, during and after our stay. They quickly responded to any questions and were very accommodating to special requests.

Our group was in town for the Mt. Desert Island marathon. The house is less than a mile from the finish line, which was a big plus. Next time we return to the area, this house will be our first choice.

PERFECT GETAWAY HOME

  • 5 of 5
This property is absolutely beautiful, clean, immaculate and well maintained. It was a wonderful home to come back to after a day of activity. It is close to conveniences, restaurants and the various small towns within Mt. Desert Island. A bit of paradise in a secluded community. My husband and I did not want to leave after our week was over. The owners were delightful and helpful in all communications. We will definitely be returning in the future.

EXACTLY AS ADVERTISED

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed in this lovely home in Southwest Harbor. The home was immaculate when we arrived and was a lovely place to come home to at the end of a day of hiking. The fireplace and hot tub were nice extras and the kitchen was well-stocked with dishes and cookware.

It was only the three of us - me, fiance and dog. But this house could have comfortably held a much larger crew.

The neighborhood was quiet and off the beaten path, but has easy access to a section of Acadia as well as a nearby midsize grocery store and many good restaurants in Southwest Harbor.

Our interactions with the owners were very professional and our security deposit was returned promptly.
