Somesville was the first village settled on Mt. Desert Island in the 18th century by Abraham Somes. It is virtually surrounded by Acadia National Park and sits at the head of Somes Sound, the only fjord on the east coast of the United States. The best thing about Somesville is its central location on the island, allowing equidistant drives to Bar Harbor's shops and restaurants, Northeast Harbor's historic summer homes and village, and the rustic charms of Southwest Harbor and the 'Quietside'. The island is alive with music, art, lobster and blueberry festivals, and friendly helpful people.

Ken and I are retired art teacher and theater costume designer. We have owned Hawthorn Cottage since 1980, taking over from Chauncey Somes, whose ancestors settled the island. We have especially enjoyed sharing our love of Mount Desert Island and Acadia with our guests all these years. We hope you will join our large number of returning guests in savoring the best of Maine.
Marilee purchased this cottage in 1980
