Property Description:

Tastefully furnished and impeccably kept, this adorable and cozy home affords wonderful views of all the harbor activities and mountain views beyond. A small marina next door and the comings and goings of area fisherman will certainly give you plenty to see from the Living Room, large deck or the screened-in side porch. A smaller village adjacent to its big sister Bass Harbor, Bernard typifies the unspoiled, working village scene of down east Maine. Bernard is roughly twenty minutes from Acadia National Park's main entrance, and only five minutes from Southwest Harbor and Echo Lake for fresh water swimming. Don't forgot to stop by famed Thurston's Lobster Pound, just a short walk away, or the cozy and attractive

About this area:

The 'quiet side' of Mt. Desert Island, which includes Bass Harbor, Tremont, Seal Cove, and Bernard on the southern and western sides of the island, is much more rural in nature and only about twenty to thirty minutes to major park entrances. What Bass Harbor lacks in shopping, it makes up for in seafood restaurants and local color, as this is a village with a true 'Down East' flavor, as well as the famous Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse.

A simply wonderful home and setting. We hated to leave. No detail left unattended to. Extremely quiet place. Amazing mornings. Photos can't capture how beautiful the location is. Highly recommend the home and the owners.

Loved everything about our vacation. Enjoyed Acadia and will return soon. The Knowles Company is first class and would recommend highly. Windswept Retreat exceeded our expectations and I will rent again when we return!
