A Weekly rental with stunning views in Southwest Harbor, Maine
To the northeast is the fjord of Somes Sound, while south is a view of Southwest Harbor and several of the offshore islands.
All have Acadia National Park’s scenic mountains as a backdrop.
Island Watch sits on a ridge, a bit removed from the busier, in-town atmosphere. However, we have our own private path that will take you into the center of Southwest Harbor.
From there you can board the free Island Explorer bus, wander through an art gallery, have a gourmet dinner, or just get an ice cream at the local café. Some of our local establishments are Beal’s Lobster pound, Rogue Cafe, Sawyer’s Market, Red Sky Restaurant, and the Wendell Gilley Museum.
We are also only minutes away from some of the least used and most scenic trails in Acadia National Park. The Rockefeller family constructed beautiful carriage roads throughout the park which you can enjoy on foot, in a horse-drawn carriage, or by bike.
The seven bedrooms of the main house each have their own bathroom. The suite on the lower level has a complete kitchen and fireplace. The main deck area provides a relaxing gathering area for your entire group, where you can kick back and watch the boating activities below.
There is also a separate efficiency apartment rental unit, called Bird’s Nest, over the detached garage on the same property.
