Just minutes to the year-round community of SW. Harbor yet offering a quiet location, our 3 bedroom ranch style home is situated on 2 acres that abut Acadia National Park. The open floor plan features a cathedral ceiling with recessed lighting and the living area has a wonderful stone fireplace and built-in media station.

Two of the bedrooms offer skylights and all bedrooms have generous closet space, wood floors, and ceiling fans. The master bedroom overlooks a small Trout pond and has its own 3/4 bath. The large heated attached garage has its own entrance to the back yard and back deck. A front porch provides enough space to sit and relax. Hiking, biking & cross country ski trails are within walking distance, 2/10th of a mile. The hiking trails lead to Beech, Mansell and Bernard Mountains

There is a seating area with a picnic table. Hammock, and outdoor fireplace in the back yard. We are only about 3 miles drive from a (swimming) lake beach in Acadia National Park. There is a labyrinth of trails behind the house with directions how to get to them. It is very private.

Great place to relax at the end of the day!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Jody and Dave's house for 10 days with 3 grandchildren and daughter and her husband. We had alot of rainy weather to start out with and then it got hot!! They were so responsive to any problem or question we may have had. They loaned us their DVD collection so the kids would have plenty to choose from and we would not have to run to the video store!!

The house was so comfortable, clean and it felt like home. Plenty of room for visiting with relatives at the kitchen table and also had privacy for teen and preteens!!! A lot of spices were provided by the owner as well a laundry and cleaning supplies and soaps, shampoos, etc.

The location was great. Nice and quiet and away from traffic at the end of the day. We toured all of Mount Dessert Isle visiting different beaches and towns.

Southwest Harbor has some great little shops. The Little Notch Bakery had wonderful bread and we ordered pizzas one night that were delicious.

We would defniteely recommend this property to friends or relatives because it feels like home.

Jody and Dave -- Thanks for everything!

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in this home during a recent trip to Mount Desert Island. The house was perfect for our needs. It is located in a very peaceful setting abutting Acadia National Forest. The home is super clean and well equipped with kitchen and bath essentials. We found the supply of tourist information very helpful. As we were there during the summer Olympics, we really enjoyed watching the action on the big screen television! Jodie, the owner is super to deal with. She really went the extra mile to make sure we had a great rental experience, including making herself available to answer questions and give tips on fun things to do on the island. We had a great time and would definitely recommend this rental.

A home away from home...

  • 5 of 5

My family had the pleasure of staying at this property during the month of Aug. Our first impression was that the house was beautifully decorated throughout and it truly felt like home. The kitchen was fully stocked and toiletries were provided. The property is located in a quiet and peaceful setting. If you are looking to stay away from the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor this would be a good choice. Since the property abuts the Acadia National Park, you can hike to the trails from the house! My kids enjoyed the hike to Long Pond... Lastly, the home owners are very helpful and accommodating. Thanks Jodie for all the info you provided us prior to our trip.

Beautiful house, very helpful owners

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for 10 days during our visit to Mount Desert Island. The first thing we noticed was how beautiful the property is. It has a wonderful open layout with beautiful architecture/interior design and many well funushed bedrooms. The house gets a lot of natural light and has a beautifully maintained backyard with a pond and hammock. The house was spottless and well equiped. The pictures do not give justice to just how nice this property is. Compared to other properties we viewed in our visit this was by far the nicest and best all around.

As well, the property is very conveniently located in Southwest Harbor with easy access to both the quiet and more busy parts of the island. The property was also very private, unlike other properties which are very closely situated to neighbors.

I cannot express just how accomodating and pleasant the owners were. They had wonderful customer service and were very willing to work with us to accomodate our needs. We were shocked at how much the owners went above and beyond what is expected to make sure our stay was enjoyable.

I would definitely recommend this property to both friends and relatives and I hope to come back.

Thanks Jodie for a great stay!

Wonderful Southwest Harbor Home

  • 5 of 5

We were up to Southwest Harbor in October, 2010 for 2 amazing weeks. Jodie and Dave’s immaculate home is wonderful it is like being in your own home with all the comforts and dog friendly. Southwest Harbor is a quaint, little town on Mt. Dessert near all the area’s scenic attractions. The home is surround by trees and you are welcomed by a beautiful wild flower garden as you pull up to the door. It has all of the amenities you could hope for including Widescreen TV, Cable, Wireless Internet, Washer & Dryer, and a fully stocked Kitchen. You will feel like you have known the owners for years and that you are renting a friends home. A quick return of your deposit check tops off a great experience.

Quiet, artistically decorated and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My husband and i, along with my dog spent four nights at this lovely home in late September. The home is on a nice parcel of land, with a lovely pond and woods in the back. We loved the interior decorating of the home, the HUGE TV, and the large closets. The kitchen is well stocked, and the grill is quite nice. The kitchen appliances are very modern (especially the washer/dryer) The location is great, in close proximity to the restaurants and shops of Southwest harbor. there are trails within walking distance of the home or a short drive away. The best thing about the house is the owner! She is very accommodating, helpful, and goes the extra mile to keep her renters happy. She gave us terrific advice about the area, and answers her emails promptly. Thanks Jodie!
