About this area:

Located on the west side of Mt. Desert Island, Pretty Marsh is largely rural in nature with pristine shore. Approximately fifteen minutes from Southwest Harbor's village center and twenty-five minutes from Bar Harbor and major park entrances, Pretty Marsh is a perfect destination for those seeking a quiet retreat while remaining within reach of shopping and restaurants.



The first morning a bald eagle landed on the tree right in front of our deck - a perfect harbinger of our amazing time in this beautiful location and fabulous house. The views are stunning, kingfishers and loons abound, and porpoises swam by a few times. The house is a relaxed camp, and has everything we needed. We certainly hope to return!

Family vacation

Very charming place. Loved having access to a private dock & water for fishing & boating. On first arrival, we came in late in evening, & it seemed very isolated, dark & a little creepy! But upon morning light we embraced the quiet & beautiful surroundings! Several of us saw the 2 dolphin on a couple different occasions! I was in the rowboat when I saw them & it was awesome! At night we would turn off every light in the house, go out on the deck and the dock & watch the stars. The view is incredible! You can see the Milky Way! We saw many shooting stars & satellites! Bring headlamps to light your way to the dock! The deck provides a beautiful view of the sunset & a serene place for morning coffee! There were 9 adults & plenty of room for everyone!

The view is amazing, the sunsets are spectacular, porpoises, seals, eagles, and osprey all visible from the deck and even more so from the kayaks we rented! The house is so comfortable and we just love it - we were so happy to be back for our second year!
