Watch the sun rise over the ocean from our living room, and after a day of hiking, reading, sailing, watching bald eagles and schooners of yore pass by, head over to the other side of the house to watch the sun disappear over the water and behind the Camden Hills. Unspoiled and private ocean views from three sides of a quiet waterfront home on Garden Point, Swan's Island. Sleeps up to 5 (a loft with a bed, one bedroom with two twins, the other with two full-sized beds), your own pier and float, available for kayaks and small boats, with a ladder for swimmers. Also mooring within 50 yards available.
There is a view back to the mountains of Acadia National Park, with many trails surrounding the property. Our island is a quiet one, with incredible trails, historic lighthouse, and a fine sand beach. There are art studios to visit, and many stunning places to rest your own easel. A welcoming library has internet 24/7; we have a post office, small store and at least two harborfront places to buy your own lobster. Also, a take-out that is open all week, zumba and yoga classes, pancake breakfasts.
Swan's Island is 6 miles away from Mt. Desert Island and Acadia National Park. It is accessible by six ferries most days of the week.
There is a landline in the house but please check with your carrier for cellphone coverage.
