Why Elise Pettus chose Southwest Harbor
I spent summers in Maine with my family since I was small. My parents bought the house and left it to me. We have used it as our family vacation spot for the last 15 years.
What makes this house unique
Every stay up here has been magical for our family. We love the park-its dramatic mountain and ocean views, love all there is to do, love being on boats, etc. Great place for guests to visit- there is so much to do! Whether its visiting world famous gardens, playing golf--or mini golf--its all here!
