Southwest Harbor Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Cozy summer cottage sleeps 4 with a full bath, kitchen, dining, living area.

Spruce Cottage - This summer cottage is located in Manset, near SW Harbor, the home of the famous Hinckley Boat Yard and some of the most beautiful views of Somes Sound, the mountains, and the waters of Mount Desert Island. It is within easy walking distance of the boatyard, the town dock, boat rentals, two churches, excellent restaurants, the free island bus service and a nice 2-mile walking loop. The surrounding area of Mount Desert Island is rich with beauty and loaded with things to do. Hiking and biking on Acadia National Park trails, sailing, motor boating, beachcombing, swimming, rock climbing, golfing, whale watching, antique shopping and eating delicious seafood are among the many activities within a very short drive.

We have been summer residents of this area since the 1960's and 70's and recently retired here year round after 31 years of teaching in a private school in Massachusetts.

Jennie or Andy Cline purchased this cottage in 1998

This cottage was originally built in the mid 1950's as an extension to the main house, which sits nearby, providing much needed extra bedrooms. In 1997 we renovated the building, turning one of the bedrooms into a passage way which opens into a generous family living space with kitchen/dining/living area. The house now has it's own private driveway and entrance off Shore Road.

This cozy cottage is located on the quiet, but very scenic Shore Road. Walk out the driveway and turn left for a spectacular 2 mile walk 'around the block.' The walk will take you through 2 working boatyards, past the town dock and ferries to the outer islands, bus stops for the free seasonal island bus service, two boat rental businesses and past some spectacular views of Somes Sound.

My wife, our daughter, and myself enjoyed a wonderful week here in Manset. The cottage is quiet, clean, and exceptional. The pictures do not do the cottage justice, it is even more beautiful in person. The grounds are wonderful and the setting is idealistic. The cottage is in the heart of Acadia National Park, it is a great location. There are many wonderful amenities - we will be back!

Owner's Response: Thanks, Jim and Michelle, for your review. We enjoyed having you and will continue to work on improving our pictures. Things are winding down and the beautiful fall colors will soon be gone. Hoping you all will return some day soon.

Even with very poor weather conditions I still had a wonderful time in my quaint, comfy cottage. Everything you could need or want was there for you. The quiet, peaceful setting and comfortable, cozy cottage is all you need and is only complemented by the beautiful Maine coastline and community. Would highly recommend!

We have had the BEST vacation! Spruce Cottage is so cozy and serene. We really appreciate your help in providing a high chair and 2 pack 'n plays for our 2 little ones. It's tough to travel with a 2.5 yr. old and 10 mos. old. Thanks for the great accommodations and making our travels much easier. We can go back to the city refreshed and hope to come back. Thanks for everything.

Thanks so much for making your beautiful place available to us. We had a great (but too short) stay. The cabin was awesome...best stocked rental house we've ever seen. We also loved the water-fall-like pressure in the bathroom! We will have to come back another time... three days was definitely not enough! Went to Bar Harbor twice, great little town. The Sand Bar cool even in the fog. Carriage roads were gorgeous. Didn't get to see Thunderhole for real, but we'll be back!

This cottage was an awesome place to stay. Just the right size, clean and has everything you need. We enjoyed watching the pond, looking for frogs and biking along the shore road.

Like everyone else who stayed here, I dreaded having to leave. The cottage is wonderful and the little 'touches' you provided made the place seem more like a home.

This is our fifth trip to Maine and by far the best cottage. It is so spacious with lots of room to put our stuff. It's a very restful place.
