The space
Make a memorable summer escape to this four-bedroom Southwest Harbor home, a well-equipped family property with a private deck, a lovely yard with a firepit and a picnic area, and an ideal location for visiting Acadia National Park.

This sun-splashed home is located in Manset, a small village just two miles south of Southwest Harbor on the quietside of Mount Desert Island. Here at the mouth of Somes Sound, you'll be only three miles from the edge of Acadia, five miles north of the Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse, and 16 miles southwest of Bar Harbor.

Come home from an afternoon of kayaking or hiking to relax in the casual living space, where you'll find an open floor plan, tile floors, and a comfortable leather sofa and armchair. Open the curtains to let in the summer sun, use the free WiFi to share photos of the day's adventures, and gather around the coffee table with a deck of cards or a board game.

Move into the adjacent full kitchen to pull fresh lobsters from the refrigerator, shuck some corn at the eat-in table, and get your favorite ingredients ready for a summer evening barbecue. You'll have standard appliances to assist with the cooking, as well as a gas grill just outside on the deck.

Set the picnic table on the grass for an al fresco dinner in the shade of the trees, and let your kids play tag on the lawn as the adults finish up the cooking. Come dessert, you can gather the provided lounge chairs around the outdoor firepit to roast marshmallows, tell stories, and make lasting memories with your loved ones.

As the adults linger outside on the deck with their coffee, the kids can head indoors for a friendly foosball tournament. And as the day's clothes spin in the private washer/dryer, the entire family can gather for a movie or two on the flatscreen TV with cable and Netflix streaming.

With four bedrooms and two full bathrooms, the Hyewood House will accommodate as many as eight guests (including a maximum of seven adults). You'll find one bedroom with a king-size bed, one bedroom with a queen-size bed, a third bedroom with a twin-over-double bunk bed, and a fourth room with two twin beds. The two bathrooms each offer a tub/shower combination.

Thanks to its tranquil location on the western, "quietside" of Mount Desert Island, Southwest Harbor and the village of Manset are a wondrous escape for hikers, kayakers, and all lovers of the Maine coast. Charter a boat to reach Sutton, Little Cranberry, or Great Cranberry Islands in Somes Sound, or wander the shores of Manset to catch the view of the Bear Island Lighthouse.

Spend your days hiking to the nearby summits of Beech Mountain, Bernard Mountain, and Mansell Mountain in Acadia, or take a dip on the shores of Echo Lake Beach four miles north. Head west for the morning to climb Cadillac Mountain or admire the jaw-dropping views on the Ocean Path, and return home to enjoy a few lobster rolls at Beal's Lobster Pier on Clark Point two miles north.
