Wonderful cottage in great surroundings
This cottage is the essence of Maine. It's small and cosy. A great fireplace to drive the dampness away! Its old but charming it its oldness! Hiking is close by. Southwest harbour is a cute little town. Communication with Dean and caretakers is great.
Quaint cottage on beautiful Southwest Harbor
The cottage sits on a beautiful wooded property with a broad private rocky beach. The cottage itself is cozy, clean and has all of the needed amenities. It's not fancy or modern, but is somewhat refreshing in that you feel like you've rolled back to simpler times. We enjoyed fires in the fireplace each evening, playing cards and doing puzzles. We walked through the woods, sat on the beach, read a book on the dock and laid in the hammock. It was a great escape.
A comfortable older cottage with view of Bear Island Lighthouse
If you are looking for a new cottage or recently updated cottage, this is not it. With that said this older cottage was clean and comfortable. It is private and quiet. The kitchen was well appointed. There are 3 rooms that have a water view. The water front is just a short walk by way of a wooded path. I took a harbor tour that went right by Bear Island Lighthouse. It was not until later I realized we actually had a view of the lighthouse from the property. The lighthouse is not very tall since it is on a cliff so it does not standout. We stayed 4 nights and had a fire in the fireplace 3 nights. Dry wood was provided. A nice cottage by the woods and water.
ideal location, comfortable
we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Cottage was ideally located and we were able to explore the lovely and charming Maine coast.
So glad you had a wonderful time.
Vintage Cottage in Beautiful Setting
Perfect vintage style cottage. Rustic and gorgeous setting. Ideal for exploring the island. Close to downtown and other harbors. Close to the forest and hiking. Plenty of space - though attic loft sleeping area was too warm to utilize. Every amenity you need and was clean. Definitely reminiscent of another era in a good way! Working fireplace, comfortable beds and laundry area with large back porch as well. The walk down to the beach area is very pretty and we saw many deer. Home surrounded by fragrant lilacs and other flowers. It was a very relaxing and enjoyable stay! Would highly recommend and return.
Incredible getaway - beautiful ocean view/deck
I only have good things to say about this property. BEAUTIFUL location and quaint, cozy interior. Comfy beds and incredible, large deck to eat and relax on. Can see the ocean from the deck. Spent lots of time on the beach looking for sea glass and went hiking in Acadia (less than 15 min to many trails including Acadia Mountain <moderate to strenuous at times> which I recommend - phenomenal view). The cottage is around the corner from downtown Southwest Harbor which is fun for an afternoon of coffee and shopping. 20 min from Bar Harbor. Perfect getaway - I can't wait to go back next summer with friends!
Golf: There are two golf courses on Mt. Desert Island. The first is the Causeway Club, a semi-private (open to public as well as members) 9 hole course (that plays 18) in Southwest Harbor, approximately 10 minutes from Manset Rock. The second is Kebo Valley, a very challenging 18 hole course in Bar Harbor, approximately 35 minutes from Manset Rock.
