About Jen & Len

We have been coming to Mount Desert Island for over 15 years. After renting down the street 2 years ago, we enjoyed the Manset side of Southwest Habor so much that we immediately started searching for a property in Southwest Harbor.

Jen & Len purchased this house in 2013

Why Jen & Len chose Southwest Harbor

The views of both the Harbor, Mountains, and boats(both pleasure craft and fishing) are unmatched. The craftsmanship, combined with the furnishings and gardens are unmatched in Southwest Harbor

Charming Cottage with Wonderful Views

  • 5 of 5

This cottage proved to be perfect for our family vacation to Mt. Desert island.

The house was bright, airy, comfortable and clean. The neighborhood was quiet and we loved the views from the master bedroom and deck. We were very pleased with the location in Southwest Harbor, a much smaller community than Bar Harbor, but with ample attractions and places to eat. Plus it's only short 20 minute drive away from the main loop in Acadia National Park. We definitely would recommend this property and would happily stay here again.
