Swans Island is a quintessential Maine summer island. It is a unique experience where one can truly escape life in this idyllic setting. There's one little store, a small year round friendly community, and old school charm.
You can gaze out at the spectacular harbor views from the porch (and bedrooms) of this comfortable house (that accommodates up to six people, with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and a look-out loft.) The fisherman’s dock where you can select your lobsters for dinner is just down the hill. And a beautiful, historic light house is a lovely, short walk away. There’s even a “fine sand beach,” that can be reached from the woods. Swans Island is a scenic 30 minute ferry ride from the mainland, where you can go for the day to check out bustling Bar Harbor or explore Mt. Desert Island. This is a great vacation opportunity that has it all!

Fresh water quarry (swimming), fine sand beach, great for walking, biking, conversation. Church/local fairs & dinners. Artist's studio tours, watercolor painting classes, yoga (but all-in-all, not as artsy as it might sound -- Swans is a 'working' island with more boat painting than picture painting.). Excellent for families. Excellent for picnics. Great library with lectures, movies, readings, programs for kids. Day camp which can be joined by the day or the week and great for ages 7 to 13.
