About this listing
Located just 2 miles from the Southwest Harbor town center, this private summer cottage is tucked in the woods on the quietside of Mount Desert Island (home to Acadia National Park.) Our rates vary from month to month, but in all cases discounts are available for bookings of 7 days or more.
This two bedroom cottage has a small pond off the deck and a peek-a-boo view of the ocean and mountains. There are two bedrooms (one king and one with twin beds), a full bath with double sinks, tub and shower, a great room with kitchen, dining, and living space, plus a small pantry and laundry area. The house is completely furnished with kitchen equipment, linens, games, and books.
Manset is the home of the famous Hinckley Boat Yard and some of the most beautiful views of Somes Sound, the mountains, and the waters of Mt. Desert Island. The surrounding area of Mt. Desert Island is rich with beauty and loaded with things to do. Hiking and biking on Acadia National Park trails, sailing, motor boating, beachcombing, swimming, rock climbing, golfing, whale watching, antique shopping and eating delicious seafood are among the many activities within a very short drive of Manset.
The Island Explorer (a free local shuttle bus) stops nearby. It is seasonal (June to September.) Ferry service to the local islands is nearby as well at the Manset town dock.
