About the property

Harbor & Mountain Views

((7 DAY - WEEKLY RENTALs ONLY)) Located on the the very desirable Shore Road in Southwest Harbor, 'Jennifer's Cottage' has a 16X20 deck with expansive views of both Southwest Harbor and the Mountains of Acadia. One can see Greening Island and the entrance to Somes Sound from the Deck and from the Second floor one can see Bear Island Lighthouse and the Cranberry Islands. The house is about 100 feet from the water's edge.

'Downtown' Southwest harbor is a short 2 minute car ride and the Seawall beach of Acadia National Park is 3 minutes by car.

A Couple or a family can easily enjoy all that Acadia National Park has to offer.

The First Floor features a kitchen, with a breakfast table for 4, a dining room with seating for 6. The first floor also features a living room with new furniture, including a queen roll out couch, LED TV, Blue Ray DVD, and a very large picture window to the Harbor and Mountains. Off of the living room is the aforementioned deck with seating for 6 and a gas grill.

The 2nd floor features a large master bedroom with a King bed. From the large picture window in the Master, you will have breathtaking views of the harbor, Acadia Moutains, Bear Island Lighthouse, and the Cranberry Islands. In front of the picture window are 2 chairs and a small table.

The 2nd floor also includes a room with 2 twin beds and a room with 1 twin bed. The room with 2 twin beds is a 'walk thru' bedroom - meaning you walk thru the bedroom wth two twins in order to get to the Master Bedroom. There is a door that can be closed between the Master and 'walk-thru'. Also on the second floor is the master bathroom.

The basement is very clean and also contains another full bathroom and a laundry area.

Unlimited U.S. long distance, Cable TV, and Wireless Internet are included.

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 cottage in 2013

Why Jen & Len chose Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island

The views of both the Harbor, Mountains, and boats(both pleasure craft and fishing) are unmatched.

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.
