Additional Location Information

About the Cottage….
The Cottage has views of the water, and is close to the water, but the property does not go down to the shore. The harbor has 2 town docks both within a block of the Cottage, which are a great place to watch the boats in the harbor.

The Cottage is a wonderful place for gatherings, with lots of living room, den, dining room, gazebo and outdoor space. It is a great place for meals, yard games, cook-outs, puzzles, watching videos, or just being together. The screened, electrified gazebo at the Cottage has been used by guests as artists' studios, an outdoor dining room and often in the evening as a place for impromptu musical gatherings. It is a great place for morning coffee, or a glass of wine in the late afternoon, and a grand place to watch the moon sail across the harbor and highlight the boats at night. On rainy days it is a great place to work a puzzle. The patio has two grills, tables and plenty of seating. There are many games, puzzles, movies and books available in the Cottage for quiet times or rainy days, and a fire in the wood stove is cozy if the weather is chilly.

About the area….
Napier Cottage is located on Clark Point Road in Southwest Harbor, between Southwest Lobster and Beal's lobster pound. Clark Point Road is a lovely quiet street which runs parallel along the harbor, with views of the harbor the entire length of the street. It is wonderful for strolls to town in early morning for a cup of coffee and fresh-baked pastry, or in the evening down to one of the docks to watch the sunset over the boats in the harbor. The Cottage is within walking distance of town, of quite a few nice restaurants, the post office, the library which has nice things for children and adults, a grocery store which has a deli with homemade items fresh daily, a wine and cheese shop, two wonderful bakeries and several art galleries as well as other shops. It is also half a block from two town docks, from two lobster pounds, where you can buy lobster to eat while watching the fishermen unload their harvest of lobsters, or take them home to cook, and from two stops by the Island Explorer, the free bus which will take you all over the island and through Acadia National Park. The buses will pick you up and let you off anywhere you wish. Bikes, canoes and kayaks can be rented in Southwest Harbor, and there are both sail and motor boats which will take you out to the Cranberry Islands. Part of Acadia National Park is located in SW Harbor, and has a wonderful picnic area where you can search the rocks and tidal pools for treasures tossed ashore by the ocean. It is a 5-minute drive to a lake with a beach for swimming. A 20-minute drive will take you to Bar Harbor, where there are many tourist attractions and activities The island is full of wonderful things for both adults and children to do and to learn--lots of concerts, lectures, hikes, museums, wild gardens, on and on.

The closest airport is Bar Harbor airport, which is 15 minutes away, and there is a larger airport 45 miles away in Bangor, ME.
