Kelly Cottage sits above Great Harbor and the granite wall of desirable Clark Point Road. This open concept year round vacation rental, has a comfortable living area, kitchen/dining space, bedroom with Queen sized bed and ample clothing storage plus a full bath with a beautiful stained glass transom above the door.
Your summer vacation, here, may begin with morning coffee, while looking out at the working harbor, at the Upper Town Dock(less than .2 miles down the road). A walk to town to sample some of the delicious fare from restaurants such as, Sips, Café Drydock, Red Skies(evenings) and more, is bound to be part of the day. The Island Explorer can be picked up in town by the post office, so you can see Acadia National Park, without driving.
If you decide to come in the fall ~ you can hike mountains and trails to see the beautiful foliage or just drive around the island for the contrast of the autumn colors against the changing shades of the ocean and the evergreens ~
Winter can be one of the best times to vacation on Mount Desert Island! The hill in the field beside, Kelly Cottage, has been a favorite sliding place for years ~ and cross country skiing on the park trails will be an activity you will always remember ~ Southwest Harbor, is more of a year round village, with some restaurants and shops that are open all year and winter activities at the Southwest Harbor Library, Harbor House Recreation Center, local churches, etc., are open to all.
Back to spring and the beginning of blooming trees and gardens, opening seasonal restaurants/shops and golf courses, is a fun time to visit, too. Be a part of the appreciation of the sunny and warm days, when they come ~ When spring has actually sprung!
