About the property

Comfortable and convenient Acadia rental home with sweeping views of Southwest

Head of the Harbor Overlook is a renovated cottage overlooking Southwest Harbor, Sutton Island, the Cranberry Islands, and Greening Island. This ideal spot is within walking distance of superb restaurants, specialty shops, a full service marina, galleries, and sea glass hunting. Coffee shops, an ice cream parlor, and children's playground are just a few things that are within a five minute walk. In just minutes you can drive to Echo Lake, Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse, and many other popular Acadia National Park destinations. Don't want to drive? Load up on the free MDI shuttle that stops directly across the street! During the summer stop by the farmers market or take a sunset sail on one of the many boats offering them. There are also many opportunities to take a ferry to one of the surrounding islands for hiking or biking.

This cottage has been appointed with very comfortable accommodations in order to make you feel instantly at home. The open kitchen and dining area feature stainless steel appliances, local granite countertops, and a large farmhouse sink in order to make meal preparations quick and easy. A lobster pot, and supplies are included (Fresh off the boat lobsters are available at the marina across the street) for those brave enough to cook their own! Local antiques are scattered throughout the house to remind us of simpler times. This area is also open to the living room which features fantastic views of Southwest Harbor! The downstairs bedroom has a set of bunk beds, single on top and double on the bottom. This room is very bright with many windows, roomy closet, gaming system, TV, DVD, and best of all a great view of the harbor! The full sized bathroom is located downstairs and includes a full-sized washer and dryer so that you can keep those bathing suits and beach towels ready at a moments notice! All TV's have cable and DVD players, and WIFI.

The master bedroom is located upstairs with it's plush king-sized bed, loads of room, flat-screen TV with DVD, video library, and did I say? Fantastic View! The last bedroom features an antique double spindle bed with lots of coastal charm, TV with DVD, and ample closet space.

A crib, receptical plugs, baby toys, child gate, and a high chair are provided for those needing one, also a bathing seat and hand rail are available for those needing a bit of assisstance with accessibility.
