Overview

Southwest Harbor Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Unsurpassed views of Southwest Harbor and the mountains of Acadia National Park.

This 100 year old cottage has been lovingly renovated by the family that owns it in order to retain the character and charm of the original summer home while adding all the modern conveniences, including heat, to make it extremely comfortable. The cottage sits on the shore of Southwest Harbor in Manset with approximately 1.5 acres of lawn, woods and stream and 150 feet of waterfront. The property juts out just enough to offer views of the water on three sides of the house - to the East, North and West. Enjoy the setting from the Adirondeck chairs on the lawn, from the rocking chairs on the wrap around porch or from the comfort of the screened porch.

Bring your boat and use our deep water mooring and outhaul. From Southwest Harbor, there are endless possibilities for exploration by boat.

The front door leads into an elegant foyer with William Morris style wallpaper. Turning to the right leads you to the stairs to the second floor and the more formal living room, we call the harbor room. The harbor room runs east west parallel to the harbor with seven windows looking out to the harbor and mountains beyond. It is decorated in a sophisticated, yet comfortable manner and features a wood burning fireplace, games, a library of many books and different reading nooks. There is a door outside leading to the wrap around porch.

From the front door, turning to the left leads you to the dining room and kitchen, both beautiful and classic. The dining table can seat 12 people. The kitchen is fully stocked with new appliances and everything you need in the kitchen. The island counter seats 4.

Beyond the kitchen, though triple doors, is the screened porch with a dining table for 8 and lovely comfortable seating area. Beyond the dining room, is the back door and back foyer, elegant downstairs bathroom, washer dryer, mudroom, dog door.

Between the kitchen and harbor room, and accessible from both sides, is the family room. The family room has a second wood burning fireplace, wallpaper with hunting dogs in green and a flat screened television, cable, apple tv, and blu-ray player.

Between the dining room and family room is the original pantry, now with bar sink and coffee maker and lots of charm.

The second floor consists of five bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Bedroom 1, with wallpaper with blue flowers, has a king sized bed and incredible views of the water and mountains. Bedroom 2, with pink floral wallpaper, has a classic three-quarter bed (48' wide) and a twin sized trundle. It also has incredible views of the water and mountains. Bedroom 3 has a bunk bed, toys, charm and water & mountain views. Bedroom 4, with yellow wallpaper with birds, has a queen sized bed and bit of water view. Bedroom 5, with red nautical wallpaper, has 2 twin beds, plus an additional twin trundle that pops up and can be put together with one of the twins to create a king sized bed. It too has a little view of the water and beyond.

This cottage is a terrific jumping off point for exploring Downeast Maine, but you could also be very happy never leaving the property.

For many years the quietside of Mount Desert Island has been our favorite Maine destination, and this house is the best place to be on the ocean, with views of the harbor and the nearby mountains. We admire the way the old summer cottage (built around 1900) has been modernized into a year-round property but which still retains the Victorian feel. The house is filled with amenities to ensure a comfortable stay. Antiques are there, but there is also access to cable, flat-screen TV, etc., and the kitchen is fully equipped. The new bathroom upstairs is wonderful with an oversized tub, a roomy glassed-in shower, and two basins. The feeling of the property is one of privacy and seclusion, and yet the house is just a few minutes from the restaurants, shops, library, bank, etc. in Southwest Harbor. It is an easy drive to all parts of the incomparable Acadia National Park.
