Our View

Actually, this can be your view. Imagine waking up each morning to this harbor scene with the sound of waves gently washing along the shoreline. The seagulls can be heard overhead and echoing across the waters.

The entrance to Somes Sound, the only natural fjord on the eastern coast of the United States, is directly in front. To the right is Greening Island where you will see a home where Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote some of his poems. To the left is our own private dock where you can walk to get even better views of the Hinckley Yacht Yard and Southwest Harbor. And, the mountains! They often turn golden with the setting sun.

The locals and yearly visitors refer to this as the “quiet side” of Mount Desert Island for good reason. It is a place of beauty and deep appreciation for the coastal lifestyle. Forget about the hustle and bustle. Relax and enjoy your time here so you can recharge and feel refreshed.
