Property Description

Bird's Nest is an elevated efficiency apartment with sweeping views of Somes Sound, the ocean, the mountains of Acadia National Park, and the lighthouse on Bear Island. At the end of a long winding private driveway Bird's Nest provides a quiet get away for a couple. There is a small efficiency kitchen and a sunny second floor deck to enjoy the view while having a peaceful breakfast or evening meal.

Bird's Nest provides a great base from which to explore the trails, mountains, lakes, ponds of the less visited parts of Acadia National Park. Many of the park trail heads and the fresh water beach with great swimming at Echo Lake are less than 2 miles away. We have our own private wooded trail that is a short hike to downtown Southwest Harbor where you can board the free Island Explorer bus and reach the busier side of Mount Desert Island including Bar Harbor and the more visited parts of Acadia such as Thunder Hole and Sand Beach. You can even take a longer ride to the Schoodic Peninsula section of Acadia.

Our trail provides easy access to the small shops and amenities offered in Southwest Harbor. These include dining experiences from cafes and ice cream shops to fine dining.

Quiet side heaven

The Birds Nest was perfect for a couple to experience Acadia but avoid the crowds at Bar Harbor. Perfectly appointed with everything you would need for cozy escape. The views from the deck are breathtaking as is the nighttime sky. Marjorie and Kevin the owners were warm welcoming but not intrusive. Our first trip to Acadia couldn't have... Read More

Birds Nest was great! Loved our cozy house.

The house is cozy and clean. We enjoyed our stay. Close to downtown Southwest Harbor and a 10min drive to Acadia National Park.

Cozy secluded studio!

This property lived up to all expectations. It is a small studio with all the basic furnishings on a hill overlooking Southwest Harbor. Perfect for a quieter experience on MDI. The apartment can get warm, but there is a window AC unit to take care of that. The porch is perfect for morning coffee, or cooking on the provided gas grill. It is nearby a... Read More
