This wonderfully situated cottage combines convenience, privacy and direct access to the shore, where there is a wide beach framed by massive ledges complete with tide pools, mussel beds, and other fascinations for young and old. The cottage is a comfortably furnished vacation home with a fully equipped kitchen and large outside deck. On the ground level are the living room with dining nook, full kitchen, master bedroom, bath and laundry. The second floor contains a very large room with twin beds at one end and an additional single bed (partially screened) at the other as well as a full bath.
Ours is a prime location at the tip of Clark Point, which separates Southwest Harbor from Somes Sound. The cottage enjoys a private location about 100' back from the shore with views over a hay field to the mouth of Somes Sound and the mountains of Acadia Park beyond. From our cottage it is a three minute walk in one direction to the historic Claremont Hotel and in the other, to the town dock, lobster wharf, and pick up point for the free Acadia bus. A few minutes further brings you to the ferry dock with service to the Cranberry Islands. The Southwest Harbor town center is now less than half a mile, as are boat and bike rental facilities, the Gilley Museum, and varied restaurant and shopping opportunities. The lakes and mountain trails of Acadia National Park are within a 5-30 minute drive, as are the Causeway Club and Kebo Valley golf courses (both open to the public at reasonable rates). In short, this is the place to be for a vacation during which everyone will be in contact with the wonders of nature and very happily engaged.
