'Myst Haven Cottage' is a beautiful 2 bedroom, 2 bath ranch (sleeps 5) on Balsam Way, a private road. Located on the 'quiet side' of the island just a 5 minute drive to quaint Southwest Harbor. Also, accessible to the free Island Explorer bus.
Listen to the ocean sounds and Western Way bell at night. A 5 minute walk to the Seawall Beach (a rocky beach) portion of Acadia National Park. Very close to Wonderland, Ships Harbor and Bass Harbor Head Light. Watch the fishing boats and yachts come and go through the Western Way as you stand on Seawall Beach. Just a 20 minute drive to Bar Harbor, which offers dining and shopping.
The house sits on a wooded acre lot that is very peaceful. Lie in the hammock out back and listen to the ocean as the mist rolls around you on certain bright sunny summer days. The stars are so bright at night you could almost touch them.
Quaint Rural Atmosphere: Ranch house situated on a small country way off of 102A/Seawall Road offers island atmosphere with a 5 minute walk to the ocean to smell the salty air and watch the boats go by Western Way. Located near Seawall Campground portion of Acadia National Park.
I moved to the island in 2000 after falling in love with it on family vacations. I'm originally from West Chester, PA. I built the house in 2003 and decided to share it with others from away who would like to come and explore this beautiful island as I did when I vacationed here.
