As you walk into 'Port's' main level, you are consumed by panoramic views of the harbor. Step out onto the deck and you can smell the ocean air and feel as though you can reach out and touch the boats in the harbor.
 
The open floor plan allows you to soak in the views whether you're cooking in the kitchen, relaxing in the sitting area or dining at the table with family and friends. The galley-style kitchen has lots of prep and cupboard space and stainless steel appliances. Reminiscent of a yacht, 'Port' has crisp white walls and natural wood accents, including exposed beams and natural wood ceiling, To top it off, this area is tastefully furnished with comfy couches and leather accents. The upper level offers an open loft bedroom with double bed and overstuffed chair. And in the lower level you'll find the master bedroom with hot tub on private patio overlooking the harbor, a full bath with granite sink, laundry and a second bedroom with twin bed plus a twin trundle.
 
Come to the 'Quiet Side': 'Port' is situated on the shore in the quaint village of Southwest Harbor. From 'Port' you can take a stroll into town and explore unique shops, fabulous restaurants, museums, antique shops, an oceanarium, and much more.. Rent a boat locally or take the water taxi to explore the waters and islands surrounding Mount Desert Island. The condo is also located just minutes from world-famous Acadia National Park, which offers crystal-clear lakes, sandy and rocky beaches, rocky shorelines, beautifully maintained hiking and biking carriage trails, mountains to hike or drive, and so much more. Opportunities for whale watching, boat rentals and charters, fishing, swimming, golf, tennis, shopping, kayaking, hiking, and many more are within minutes.
 
Away from the Crowds, Close to Everything!: Situated on the 'quiet side' of Mount Desert Island, you can enjoy the real Downeast Maine away from the crowds, but still be within minutes of world-famous Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. You can explore all that the park has to offer by yourself, take a guided tour or take Mount Desert Island's bus, the 'Island Explorer', available to the public free of charge! Destinations include just about anywhere you want to go on the island. There are a number of outfitters located on Mount Desert Island that rent bicycles and kayaks as well. Just fifteen miles to Bar Harbor and you can enjoy a wide variety of activities from the most relaxed to the most rigorous, dining for all tastes and budgets, and shopping in many unique shops and galleries. Regardless of your interests, 'Port' and the surrounding attractions are sure to make for a fulfilling vacation!
 
Come in the Fall-Beautiful Foliage, lower rates! : The months of September and October are a fabulous time to come to 'Port'. The rates are lower, the crowds have left, the weather is comfortable and the foliage is spectacular!!! Acadia National Park is rated among the best places in the United States to view fall foliage!

Great Place to Stay!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Port. The views were spectacular! All accommodations were outstanding. Loved the deck, patio, pier and hot tub! Southwest Harbor is a great vacation spot. Beal's Lobster Pier was very enjoyable, loved talking to the locals. My favorite hike was Wonder Land trail through the pines to the ocean, not far from the condo. I would highly recommend this vacation rental! Elizabeth D - (Oct 2017)

Beautiful waterfront condominium

We have stayed in these condos for the past 2 years and enjoyed the absolutely perfect view of the harbor with stunning sunrises . The condos are well equipped and the manager, Jane, is outstanding in attention to every detail. I would recommend this property to all. Robert P - (Sep 2017)

Comfy condo with a fabulous view!

This was our 2nd stay in Port at the Windward Shores. Both visits we stayed for 3-4 weeks and lacked for nothing. The location is perfect for accessing the main village of SW Harbor on foot and Acadia National Park by car or free shuttle bus. The views SW Harbor, the Marina and the outer islands are awesome in any weather, day or night. The condo is well appointed and the kitchen is well stocked with appliances/utensils/dishes. We did purchase 4 wine glasses as there were none. We donated them to Port for future wine lovers. A great place for up to 6 guests except the dining table only accommodates 4. We will definitely return to Port the next time we visit Mt Desert Island. Terry C - (Sep 2017)
