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.


Fantastic rental!

Water’s Edge was truly the perfect house for our family vacation! We enjoyed the beautiful views, the very comfortable beds, the amazingly well-stocked kitchen, exploring all its great historic magazines and books by the warm fireplace on chilly nights, and the proximity to Southwest Harbor allowing for many walks into town and tennis matches at the nearby courts.
