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.

We loved this house! There was a total of 14 people staying in the house plus a dog. The house couldn't have fit us any better. The view off the back deck was priceless and so wonderful to wake up to each morning or see at sunset. Southwest Harbor town nearby was perfect to get quick snacks and food at the market or meals out or just window shopping. Callouts to next renters would be use the Sawyers Market in town - so close and yummy fresh food and produce.
