The Quiet Side of Mount Desert Island
Built in 1883,our historic Maine inn enjoys an ideal location in the village of Southwest Harbor – quiet residential neighborhood, walking distance to Main St. and some of the best harbor water views on the “Quietside” of Mount Desert Island.
Sea Kayaking, Nature Cruises, Bicycling, Hiking, Swimming, Golf, Galleries, Shopping and dining are just a short stroll down the street or only a couple of miles away.
In addition, our area of Mount Desert Island is renowned as a popular area of the country for some good, old-fashioned star gazing, due to the minimal light pollution. Just 4 miles from our inn is Seawall – a naturally formed oceanside area that is simply perfect for nighttime stargazing, relaxing with a good book and a special someone or enjoying a picnic for two while listening to the crashing ocean waves.
