Southwest Harbor Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5-6)

Our comfortable cottage is private, surrounded by woods with a view of the ocean and passing boats through an opening in the trees. Our beach is accessible via a long boardwalk leading from the side yard. Great beach walking and shelling and a place for picnics.

In addition to full kitchen with oven and microwave, there are three bedrooms sleeping 5 with a roll out bed for an additional person. There are two large bedrooms: one with a queen and the other with a twin and a double. The third bedroom has a single bed. All rooms have electric heat when needed. The cottage has complete housekeeping facilities and sheets and towels are provided. The cottage has wi-fi and internet capability.

We are within a few minutes drive of Southwest Harbor for dining and shopping. Acadia National Park is easily accessible all over the island and offers lots of opportunities for hiking, bicycling and kayaking. There are sailing opportunities in Southwest Harbor, and Northeast Harbor and boat trips to the islands.

You will never tire of exploring one of our country's most beautiful islands.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Perfect weather and a perfect spot to bond with our grandchildren. Loved the "homey" feeling. Wish it was ours.

Serenity surrounded by beauty

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at the Keyhole a few times over the years, and it always feels like coming home. I am a photographer, and couldn't stop taking pictures while on the island, it was beautiful everywhere we went. We enjoyed delicious lobsters, and quiet breakfasts on the deck. We never managed to hike all the trails we wanted to, and I will be happy to come back to do some more.

Time to Breathe

  • 5 of 5

I have been coming to Keyhole Cottage for many years; the last time three years ago with my wife, who died less than a year later. This was the first year I've been back since then. Keyhole Cottage is a place to take time to breathe; to sit and listen and watch without the interruption of television; though there is wifi and so you can always check the news if you really want to. Since you are in the midst of Acadia National Park you are close to all the attractions that that wonderful place has to offer: hiking, bicycling etc. You can see the sunrise from Cadillac Mt, or you can walk a hundred yards to your own beach and to do the same. The accomodations are more than adequate and the cottage has a nice deck with the keyhole view of the water.A great place to be.
