Property Description:

As the name suggests, this adorable, 3-bedroom home with 1-bedroom guest cottage enjoys a "Beautiful View." Whether you're stealing a quiet moment alone or sharing time with friends, you're sure to enjoy the lovely water and mountain views this home offers from its 3-sided wrap around porch. With a natural, undeveloped meadow across the road, you can relax at home in quiet surroundings with an unobstructed view of passing sailboats and lobster boats, the Cranberry Isles, Western Way passage, and mountains of Mt. Desert Island before you. And when you're ready to venture out, just walk across the road and down a country lane known as The Cable Crossing Road to reach the Manset Shore and a wonderful cobblestone beach. From there you can launch the canoe that comes with the house, or your own kayak (life vests provided), comb for sea glass, or sit lazily by the water. All of this combined with a spacious setting and thoughtful renovations will surely lead you back again for years to come.

About this area:

Mt. Desert Island's second largest village, Southwest Harbor, features a charming Main Street with an appealing assortment of shops and restaurants. The neighboring village of Manset, which is along the southern shore of the harbor, tends to be rural in nature but features a number of excellent restaurants and boatyards, including Hinckley Yacht Yard and Morris Yachts, both of which boast an international reputation. If Bar Harbor is the 'gateway' to Acadia, Southwest Harbor is the gateway to Acadia's westside trails and attractions, including Seawall, Ship's Harbor, and Echo Lake, all between five and eight minutes from the village center.


Serene, Lovely, Ocean View

I have stayed in this meticulously restored and decorated historic farmhouse many times. Its charm and comfort are unmatched with close access to Seawall and several great hiking trails. The adjacent “Book House” is an added very special private bonus.
