A short walk from the town dock and three minute drive from the center of Southwest Harbor, this comfortable artist and musician's home has an expansive backyard and beautiful wrap-around porch for outdoor dining and relaxing in the sea air.

The space
Soak in the salty air as you lounge on our eighty foot wrap-around porch and catch glimpses of Somes Sound through the maples.

This sunny house features three bedrooms, all with comfy queen-sized beds. The large bedroom on the second floor has two beautiful southwest-facing windows and the other bedrooms face the water (one is on the first floor). The large bathroom on the second floor features a luxurious custom shower and antique claw-foot soaking tub. The first floor has a generous living room with a Steinway grand piano as the focal point, as well as a nice sound system with a turntable and records. This cook's kitchen is well-equipped with a gas stove, nice pots and pans, spices, olive oil and some baking basics so you can hit the ground running. It is designed as a hangout spot with an island that seats six for informal meals. There is no formal dining room, but the covered porch seats six for al fresco dining.

Guest access
You'll have access to a washer & dryer in the basement. Amenities include high speed internet and a gas grill. Bikes can be stored on the porch. Bring your own lawn games for the shared backyard.

Other things to note
Extra kid beds are available upon request.

Southwest Harbor, Maine, United States

Shore Road boasts views of picturesque Manset Harbor with the backdrop of Acadia's majestic mountains. Here you can take a ferry ride to a sunset dinner at the farm-to-table Islesford Dock Restaurant, or rent your own sailboat and explore Northeast Harbor across the sound. Mount Desert is home to endless outdoor adventures including peerless hiking and carriage trails, beaches, and lakes. Enjoy swimming at the pristine Echo Lake, golfing at the Causeway Club (open to non-members), or lobster eating wherever! Bicycle and kayak rentals are available right in town, or head to Bar Harbor for rock climbing or a whale watch.

For those not familiar with the area, Southwest Harbor (a 3 minute drive away) is an absolute gem, and Manset its most historic and beautiful seaside neighborhood, home of the famous Hinckley Marina and Boatyard, where some of the world's most iconic yachts spend the summer. Take in the sunset over cocktails at the historic Claremont Hotel's Boat House Restaurant. Enjoy some of the island's best fine dining at Red Sky, casual outdoor dining at Beal's Lobster Pound, or take a break from lobster with some traditional rustic Mexican fare and margaritas at XYZ (a five minute walk).

Southwest also features gift shops, galleries and cafes, as well as a bakery, an excellent wine shop, and a boutique grocery. This is the quiet side of the island; all the beauty of Acadia without the volume of tourist and cruise ship traffic you will find in Bar Harbor. On nearby Beech, Acadia, and Western Mountains, you will find old growth forests, stunning views of Echo Lake, Long Pond and Blue Hill Bay, and rarely encounter another hiker before noon. Just down the road, Ship Harbor and Wonderland offer casual strolls to some of Acadia's most precious coastline vistas. Don't forget to visit Bass Harbor Head Light, the most photographed lighthouse in New England!
