Property Details

Updated: Mar 31, 2015
Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 5 Sleeps

Sit on the deck of this wonderfully situated cottage and look out over the Great Harbor of Mount

Desert to the mountains of Acadia National Park. Or walk 30 yards across our field to the shore,

where you will find a wide beach framed by massive ledges replete with tidepools, mussel beds, and

other fascinations for young and old. Our cottage is superbly located and combines convenience,

privacy, and comfort. It is a nicely furnished, fully equipped vacation home with a large deck and,

if requested, use of our canoe. On the ground level are living room, dining el, full kitchen, master

BR, bath, and laundry. The second floor contains a very large room with twin beds at one end and an

additional single bed at the other as well as a full bath.

Ours is a prime location at the tip of Clark Point, which lies between Southwest Harbor and Somes

Sound. From our cottage, it is a two minute walk in one direction to the historic Claremont Hotel,

with its tennis and croquet courts, dock, and fine restaurant. In the other, it is three minutes to

the town dock, lobster wharf and pick-up point for the free Acadia bus. A few minutes further walk

brings you to the ferry dock with service to the Cranberry Isles. The Southwest Harbor town center

is now less than a half mile, as are boat and bike rental facilities, the Gilley Museum, and varied

restaurant and shopping opportunities. The lakes and mountain trails of Acadia Park are within a 5-

30 minute drive, as are the Causeway Club and Kebo Valley golf courses (both open to the public at

reasonable rates). In short, this is the place to be for a vacation during which everyone will be

happily engaged.

An Idllic Maine cottage

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at the shore cottage twice, first as a couple and just recently as part of an 11-person family reunion (the cottage was allocated to the four younger family members). It served admirably in both cases. The cottage and the main house which it adjoins are located on a spectacularly beautiful spit of land, stone and sand at the southern end of Somes Sound looking over to the mountains of Acadia National Park. The view northward up the sound is one of the truly splendid sights on an island (Mount Desert) which abounds in wonderful vistas. The town of Southwest Harbor somehow manages to cater to rent-paying visitors (it is full of interesting restaurants and an excellent bike shop) without losing its character as a year-round fishing village. If you like Maine, this is perfect heaven.

Activity and Interests

Wonderful beach and ledges are your "front yard". Free Islander bus to all Acadia Park destinations within 150 yds of our home; Causeway Club nine hole golf course and public tennis courts both within walking distance. And for something entirely different, try the MDI Granite museum, Seal Cove Auto museum, and the Wendell Gilley gallery right in Southwest Harbor.
