Heron Pool is a lovely country home privately situated on Somesville Harbor. It is at the end of a long driveway with sweeping views of the harbor and Mountains. The property shares a dock with the neighbors. Take in bald eagles, ospreys, loons, seals, deer, and more from the deck. Inside it is tastefully furnished with antiques, overstuffed couches, and plenty of space for your family. 4 bedrooms in the house, with 2 queen size beds and 4 single beds, and one queen size bed in the private cottage steps away from the house. Have lunch in the garden at a teak table set over looking the water, swim off the dock at high tide, kayak the harbor or just snooze in a lawn chair. Bikes and kayaks can be rented locally, and Somes Pond is minutes away and much warmer to swim in than the ocean.
Heron Pool sleeps 10 comfortably and is truly a family home. It is ideal for kids with a wooden swing set, fields and shoreline to explore, all well set back from the road.
If you ever leave the property you can enjoy all that Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, SW Harbor and NE Harbor have to offer. You may not be a Rockefeller but you sure can live like one. Make Heron Pool a part of your summer this year and for years to come.

Our group of 6 adults stayed 5 nights in this very special home. The home has character and charm with many special places and rooms to enjoy. You can tell a family has lived and enjoyed this vacation home over the years - and sharing it is a real treat. Sone the special places include the deck overlooking a beautiful pond view, the sun room overlooking the water, a dining room with plenty of room also with a nice view, and a picnic bench in the back yard overlooking the water to watch the ducks. The home has plenty of room with ample number of bedrooms. Also since the home is located on the quieter side of the island, it is easy to get away from the crowds and enjoy good restaurants in Southwest Harbor and peace and quiet. The home is well maintained and very comfortable.
Our family of 4 and another family of 4 shared this home for the last week. I cannot put into words how wonderful this home is. The pictures, as beautiful as they are, do not do the home justice. Driving into the driveway, after a long flight, we were welcomed with an incredibly beautiful home, that is so peaceful and comfortable to live in. The kitchen was perfect for food preparation, the bathroom and bedroom layout was fantastic, the dining was spacious for 8 of us, but could easily fit another 2 or maybe even 4? However, the best part of the room is that sunroom that overlooks the water. Drinking coffee there in the morning was the most peaceful part of my day, perhaps the most peaceful part of my year! The kids enjoyed heading to the water at low tide, picking up dozens of mussels which we enjoyed every evening. We loved the home and will definitely stay there when we come back.
Our whole family stayed for a week in this marvelous quiet waterfront home on Mount Desert Island. One of the things I loved about it was the sense that this was a real home to another family that loves the coast of Maine as much as we do. The accommodations were very comfortable, with a variety of sleeping arrangements that made it easy for each member of our family to find a room that worked perfectly. The furnishings were charming -- worthy of this classic Maine summer place. We were preparing for our daughter's Saturday night wedding at a nearby Seal Cove venue, and Heron Pool's central location -- handy to Somesville, Bar Harbor, Ellsworth, and Southwest Harbor -- was ideal. Cannot say enough good things about our stay!!!
