Southwest Harbor Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 loft bedroom, 2 full bathrooms waterfront on Southwest Harbor

As you walk into 'Port's' main level, you are consumed by panoramic views of the harbor. Step out onto the deck and you can smell the ocean air and feel as though you can reach out and touch the boats in the harbor.

The open floor plan allows you to soak in the views whether you're cooking in the kitchen, relaxing in the sitting area or dining at the table with family and friends. The galley-style kitchen has lots of prep and cupboard space and stainless steel appliances. Reminiscent of a yacht, 'Port' has crisp white walls and natural wood accents, including exposed beams and natural wood ceiling, To top it off, this area is tastefully furnished with comfy couches and leather accents. The upper level offers an open loft bedroom with double bed and overstuffed chair. And in the lower level you'll find the master bedroom with hot tub on private patio overlooking the harbor, a full bath with granite sink, laundry and a second bedroom with twin bed plus a twin trundle.

Come to the 'Quiet Side': 'Port' is situated on the shore in the quaint village of Southwest Harbor. From 'Port' you can take a stroll into town and explore unique shops, fabulous restaurants, museums, antique shops, an oceanarium, and much more. Or, walk to the marina and watch the lobster fishermen bring in their catch. You can even buy a fresh lobster while you are there! Rent a boat locally or take the water taxi to explore the waters and islands surrounding Mount Desert Island. The condo is also located just minutes from world-famous Acadia National Park, which offers crystal-clear lakes, sandy and rocky beaches, rocky shorelines, beautifully maintained hiking and biking carriage trails, mountains to hike or drive, and so much more. Opportunities for whale watching, boat rentals and charters, fishing, swimming, golf, tennis, shopping, kayaking, hiking, and many more are within minutes.

Away from the Crowds, Close to Everything!: Situated on the 'quiet side' of Mount Desert Island, you can enjoy the real Downeast Maine away from the crowds, but still be within minutes of world-famous Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. You can explore all that the park has to offer by yourself, take a guided tour or take Mount Desert Island's bus, the 'Island Explorer', available to the public free of charge! Destinations include just about anywhere you want to go on the island. There are a number of outfitters located on Mount Desert Island that rent bicycles and kayaks as well. Just fifteen miles to Bar Harbor and you can enjoy a wide variety of activities from the most relaxed to the most rigorous, dining for all tastes and budgets, and shopping in many unique shops and galleries. Regardless of your interests, 'Port' and the surrounding attractions are sure to make for a fulfilling vacation!

Come in the Fall-Beautiful Foliage, lower rates! : The months of September and October are a fabulous time to come to 'Port'. The rates are lower, the crowds have left, the weather is comfortable and the foliage is spectacular!!! Acadia National Park is rated among the best places in the United States to view fall foliage!

Have school-age kids but still want to avoid the crowds? Why not come to 'Port' in June!

Enjoy a picnic on Windward Shore's Private Dock. Watch the activity in the harbor as working lobster and fishing boats mingle with exquisite yachts. When the sun sets behind you, experience a sight unparalleled as the boats in the harbor are illuminated...gorgeous!

Our family had a fabulous stay at Port. The condo was very comfortable and had everything we needed. The view from the condo was nothing short of spectacular! We really enjoyed exploring Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor without the crush of tourists that come during peak season. We will definitely visit again in April or early May. When we left, my 5 year old son summed up our stay perfectly when he said "these have been the best days of my life."

Harbor view

  • 4 of 5
Clean, kitchen well equipped, great view. My criticisms are only one tiny bar of soap, no extra toilet paper, which seemed a little less than one would expect in a relatively expensive rental. The stairs were very steep and narrow, which could be a problem for older folks and small children. It also made getting luggage downstairs difficult. One request made by the management, dishes washed AND put away, seemed a little unreasonable. I ran the dishwasher, no problem, but the dishes were way too hot to put away and get out by 10 o'clock.

I hope my complaints don't seem picky, because overall I liked the place. Southwest Harbor is beautiful and has a number of good restaurants. Late in the season it is uncrowded and very peaceful. We saw pretty much the entire island (it's all gorgeous), and never left Mt. Desert Island during our week. We met many delightful people, both locals and other tourists. It was a pretty fine way to spend a week.

Port was exactly as listed plus some!

  • 5 of 5
When my best friend and I arrived for our 2013 week's vacation, we gasped as we entered the front door of Port and saw the breathtaking and spectacular view of the harbor out the sliding glass door directly ahead. The condo was immaculately clean, the living room comfy and cozy whether we were watching TV at night or drinking coffee and watching the sun come up in the mornings. Had we been inclined to cook at all, the kitchen had everything from lobster pots to an electric griddle for cooking. My friend stayed in the loft, and I stayed in the master bedroom downstairs; both were comfortable and plenty spacious. The washer and dryer were a real bonus as we didn't have to come home with a suitcase full of dirty clothes, and the hot tub on the back patio overlooking the harbor was sheer luxury. Be sure and have breakfast at Sea Biscuit and Grumpy's, both just up the street. This would be a perfect getaway for all except those with mobility issues as sleeping quarters are either up in the loft or down a fairly narrow stairway. The Southwest Harbor location is close to the bigger and more touristy Bar Harbor (which was great fun for a couple of day trips) as well as to Acadia National Park entrances, where we took some great hikes (and for those of you in your 60's, 70's or even 80's, there were plenty of us not athletic types out there walking the trails and scaling the rocks!). If I ever returned to Bar Harbor, Port would be my #1 pick for a place to stay.

Delightful

  • 5 of 5
Lovely condo. Nice decor. Clean. Excellent kitchenware like pots, pans, wine glasses. View is amazing. Super quiet but acadia national park and bar harbor are a quick drive to more action. About 10 really good restaurants in walking distance so you don't have to drive to eat out.

Washer dryer, hot tub and outdoor fireplace a bonus.

Strongly recommend.

This was a last minute reservation and just what the doctor ordered. "Port" was clean and ready to go and the layout was perfect for our family. Becky (manager) was very helpful when the hot tub was not working (it was the circuit breaker - I should have figured this out but...) She immediately called and we had the hot tub up and running that night. Thanks for a great location (away from traffic of Bar Harbor but close for all activities), great house and excellent view. Thanks so much

We left wishing we could stay. Don't miss out on this place!!
