UNIQUE COVE SIDE CABIN ON SOMES SOUND NEXT TO BABBLING BROOK

Southwest Harbor Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Lovely, romantic, rustic cabin on cove side cliff with spectacular view of Somes Sound. Sit in rocking chairs on edge of cliff to sip coffee and watch sailboats gliding by on Sound, pileated woodpeckers in the woods, ducks in cove, an occasional seal, and hummingbirds, nuthatches, and goldfinches at feeders. Cabin is surrounded by tall pines on three sides with opening to water views on the fourth side. Living/dining area includes a large stone fireplace and a wood stove. Dining table seats eight. Buffet counter next to kitchen provides serving space. Living space seating includes futon couch, L.L. Bean rocker, and two seat rocker. Love seat faces fireplace. Large windows open onto cove views. Kitchen has an electric stove. Full bathroom. Master bedroom has a double bed and bay window seat overlooking cove. Side window overlooks brook, a series of small pools and cascades that step down to the cove between moss covered banks. Second bedroom includes two oak twin beds and views of brook. Sounds of babbling brook will lull you to sleep. Electric heat in all rooms. Shed includes space for bikes and firewood.

Two miles to fine restaurants and shopping in Southwest Harbor -- and a very good laundromat. Under three miles to swimming in Echo Lake and park hiking trails. The cabin is less than a hundred yards from the Valley Cove Acadia hiking trails to Valley Cove and up Flying Mountain.

We are retired New York private school teachers. I am a librarian. My husband taught high school biology and environmental science teacher and is a musician. We spent several summers sailing to Maine before buying a home in Seal Harbor in 1979.

Robert and Sue Hipkens purchased this cabin in 1986

We bought our waterfront cabin in Southwest Harbor as an investment property where we also hoped to spend time because of its beautiful location.

We like to wake up in the morning, after a night of listening to the brook, and look out at the sun dappled water in the cove. We like to have breakfast seated in the rocking chairs overlooking the cove watching the ducks, birds at the feeder and sailboats. A short walk takes us on a walk to Valley Cove or up Flying Mountain.
