This area is enhanced by the beauty of Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park and our wooded property add to a quiet restful vacation

A Home Away From Home: This cottage was built in 1986 - 1990 by our family and has proven to be a haven for young and old as we seek a serene area where the outside enters the inside and we live among the forest and friends of the forest.

It is expansive and open and allows private time plus the excitement of friends and family bound together.

The privacy of the acreage makes one feel cut off from the world while being within a five minute walk into the middle of town. The town is small but expands greatly in the summer season and offers shops, dining, medical services, and a community center, a first class public library, land and water sports of every conceivable type, music and festivals, outstanding museums, religious opportunities, small town fun and games, a children's center, elderly programs, sporting activities, and stumbling on all types of native animals.

We encourage 'greening' activities with the home and surroundings and environmental procedures to leave the earth like we find it.

Now what might you do to invest your time in this paradise? Well, photography, .bird watching, whale watching, discovering puffins, seals, eagles, studying all types of native animals that roam free on the island are just a few of the joys of nature at your service. Walking, hiking, biking, boating, sailing, kayaking will fill your days and make you enjoy peaceful sleep on the 'Quiet side'. You can look at the National park site which covers all Park activities for both adults and children with extensive hiking trails, beaches / lakes plus day and evening tours and programs.....www.nps.gov/acad/ This is a major informamtion source for our travelers.

The cottage will be filled with books, guides, maps etc...on what to do and where to do it.

Spacious yet cozy, close to town yet tranquil!

  • 5 of 5
Thanks to Bruce and Rebecca for a wonderful stay! Everything was fantastic and there was SO much space (there ended up being only the four of us this time, but we could bring our extended family if need be). Despite the large space, we still felt cozy and our 9-month old loved exploring. The property is wonderful, there are little hidden nooks everywhere yet it is very well landscaped and manicured. We were literally a 3-5 minute walk down the hill and in literal center of Southwest Harbor. The bus to Acadia is around the block. And right up the street from the hubbub of town, you find yourself in this peaceful place, a true miracle. Will stay again.

Peaceful Vacation

  • 4 of 5
This quirky place is secluded up above Southwest Harbor. We were able to overlap visits from friends and family and the place accomodated all. Even with one bathroom, the space was fantastic and the views from the windows were marvelous. The kitchen was well stocked with extras like spices, oil and vinegar. It is located so close to town that we enjoyed many walks to shopping, dinner, and the Cranberry Island Ferry. The owners are very nice to deal with and very responsive by email!

Owner's Response: This, our first year of rental of our family cottage, 'The Miracle', we have had several great reviews left in our visitory diary but none any more pleasing as this one. We always try to
put ourselves in the shoes of the visitor and offering what we would enjoy if we were the visitors.
Many times the cookie jar had to be used to allow some to vacation and it is nice when everyone can get their money's worth plus some lasting memories of a Maine vacation.
Everyone has said they also enjoyed meeting our pet squirrel on the steps of the cottage
when they arrived.. .

The 'Miracle' Vacation Cottage on the 'Quietside' of Mount Desert Island is where the quiet nature of the area maximizes your vacation enjoyment. Southwest is nestled among the mountains of Acadia National Park and days can be spent walking trails along the ocean and through the mountains.

Brilliant sunrises begin days of exploring nature's wonders until watching in awe our ocean sunsets. Whether eating a picnic lunch at Seawall, lobsters on the pier or enjoying fine dining in a variety of restaurants you're in relaxed comfort and looking forward to the next day.

The Island offers a wide selection of shopping and it is continuously alive with cultural activities of every type, including but not limited to, music, festivals, parades, art exhibits, a full range of water activities, golfing, hiking, bird watching and a great selection of National Park tours and exhibits.

The free, propane powered 'Island Explorer Buses' cover the Island from morn till night - a unique service.
