About the property

Two King Suites on the Harbor, each with their own Kitchen and Bath

Port Cottage is an exceptional rental experience.

This waterfront cottage has two stories. Each level features a king bed room, full bath, small kitchen, dining and living area, and deck/patio overlooking the harbor. The units are not connected by an interior staircase. An additional queen sofa sleeper and washer/dryer in the downstairs unit. This cottage is ideal for couples traveling together who want their own suites or parents with children.

***Many excellent reviews on another popular travel site***

Included are complimentary kayaks for use in the harbor, as well as beach and dock access.

The recreational, cultural, and dining offerings in this area are incredible with the fantastic Acadia National Park at your fingertips and Bar Harbor just minutes away by car or the FREE bus transportation system available just steps from the cottage door!

Port is nestled with three other cottages in a quaint residential neighborhood on the shore of Southwest Harbor, in the midst of an interesting variety of boating activities. From the decks, check out the ferry which goes to the Cranberry Islands multiple times a day from the Upper Town Dock (within view); lobstermen moor their boats right off our dock and sell their catch just a few docks down from ours. Across the harbor is Great Harbor Marina, home to commercial fishing boats, world class pleasure yachts during the summer, and the Hinckley charter fleet.

Acadia National Park, with its nearly 32,000 acres of land offers unequaled beauty and ocean front access. Over 55 miles of carriage trails were created and gifted to the people by John D. Rockefeller provide easy hiking and biking to the summits of nearby mountains with vista of unrivaled beauty.

In spite of all the physical beauty and charm of the 'Island' we hear most from our newer guests that they were most impressed with the friendliness of the community and the people of Southwest Harbor. Most are anxious to make a visit to Southwest Harbor an annual affair!

Complimentary high speed WIFI connection available in all cottages.

About Ryan Blotnick

The Dawson Family, owners since 1980, loves to share the beauty of Mount Desert Island with their guests. Ask owners Nancy and Jon for recommendations on restaurants, shopping, hiking trails, and secret swimming spots. We 'winter' in nearby Bangor Maine, about 45 miles Northwest of Mount Desert Island. Nancy is a Bangor native and we have an extended family there. But the beauty of the 'Island' draws us year 'round.

We spend weekends in Southwest Harbor through out the four seasons!

Ryan Blotnick purchased this cottage in 1979

Why Ryan Blotnick chose Southwest Harbor

Clark Point neighborhood is unique, rich in a variety of offerings and activities within minutes by foot, boat, bike or auto!

Being on the Harbor provides and ever changing visual experience. Heavily populated in the summer with an incredible array and variety of watercraft, from the fleet of vintage Friendship Sloops to luxury Hinckley sale and power boats, to the commercial fishing fleet of lobster boats and scallop draggers.

This property is 'south facing' which makes it a warm and welcoming place for us during the 'off season'... Our 'winter' home is Bangor where we work in real estate and insurance, 46 miles away, but spend nearly every weekend during the fall, winter and spring seasons!

Our property and location is great because there is a mix of summer residents and year 'round residents... there is an active community here in the 'off season'

During the summer the bus stops at our doorstep providing free transportation around Mt Desert Island. But when its not we are within a short distance to the Causeway Club, which has nine hole golf course, clay tennis courts and a salt water heated pool.

On the other side of the Club is the Park with superb hiking. One fantastic hike is Flying Mountain which is only about 250' in elevation and takes only 20 minutes to climb. The reward is a fabulous view East overlooking Somes Sound, Northeast Harbor and the ocean and islands off shore. The trail continues down to Valley Cove on the Sound and there's a fire road returning you to the point of beginning.

The proximity to the vibrant village 'down town' adds to the location. The village offers a great library, Harbor House a community neighborhood organization offering 'YMCA' type of programs for folks of all ages, a great bakery, specialty wine store, a gourmet food market, bike shop, pharmacy, and an array of fine restaurants.

Personally, the property provides access to the harbors and islands around Mt Desert Island.

What makes this cottage unique

Mount Desert Island offers the most spectacular vistas on the East Coast of the US.

A visit to 'the island' and this part of the Maine Coast would not be complete without a visit to one of the 'outer islands'... Islesford, the village on Little Cranberry Isle is minutes away from Southwest Harbor by ferry where the pace of life is of another generation. It's where a small year 'round population of hardy folk who look to the sea for their sustenance, swells with the 'summer folk who come from 'away' to occupy their waterfront homes and cottages. So check the Ferry schedule at the Upper Town Dock and treat your self to a visit to Islesford.

And if you want a great 'shore luncheon' visit the Dock Restaurant (www.isleforddock.info) Dining at the 'dock' is even better in the evening especially if you're lucky enough to see the sun set... its a site to behold!
