Photos and Description of the Southwest Harbor vacation estate rental

4 Bedrooms, 3 Full Baths

The Victorian cottage with a mansard roof and contemporary addition has been restored to its stately charm with original art, orientals, 100 year-old wood floors, antique fixtures as well as all modern amenities -- granite counter tops, top kitchen and laundry appliances, three flat screen tvs with cable and wi-fi, surround sound, and soaring ceilings throughout. The downstairs layout is open for entertaining and communal cooking, with a bright, modern addition overlooking the sprawling yard to the pond. Three full bathrooms, including one on the ground floor. Bedrooms (4) offer a king, queen, a double, and a bunk bed with twin and double on bottom (crib available). Enjoy al fresco dining on the large stone patio just outside the kitchen.

Set on an idyllic one acre property with a secluded duck pond, the mansard enjoys partial views of the mouth of the harbor and includes a separate 10 X 12 writing studio with high-speed internet and views of a wildflower meadow and pond. Additionally, a 'wreck house' with toys galore is on the property and is available for recreational use during the daytime. An elliptical machine is also available, and a basketball hoop, boxing bags, swings, trampoline, etc. Our four nieces/nephews next door are welcome to use the space, so the wreck house is for community fun. It is a real delight on a stormy day!
