About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This unique property, a "Couple's Retreat," is located on Swans Island, six miles off the coast of Maine. It boasts a wrap-around porch with incredible oceanfront and sunset views. If you are going to the coast of Maine, you will find that our home is warm and welcoming and the view always spectacular.

The Swan's Island cottage has been completely restored and renovated with a new addition, which combines New England charm with modern conveniences. Two fireplaces add warmth to the living room and the master bedroom. The adorable cottage kitchen has a breakfast bar that looks out at the ocean. And, of course, the porches surround the front and side, offering plenty of opportunity to enjoy the magnificent oceanview and breathtaking sunsets.

Access to island is provided by The Swan's Island Ferry which leaves from Bass Harbor, Maine. You can ride bikes, kayak, sail, hike, or just relax and enjoy the beauty of coastal Maine.

Best Maine Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We go to Maine every 5 years or so, and this time we wanted to stay on an island. Wanting to be close to Acadia National Park and the ferry, we picked this lovely cottage on Swans Island. Judy, the owner, couldn't be more accommodating, and the cottage is impeccably designed..we felt like we were on the show "The Rich & Famous"! Sunsets over the harbor were mesmerizing. Highly recommend!

Car: necessary

This is an island...the grocery store is small so its better to do a big shopping before coming over on the ferry. The ferry ride is only 6 miles, and you can bring a car/minivan/pickup on it. There is one place to eat and its very good-and you can buy fresh lobster right from the boats.
