About Susan and Andy
We are a family of four lucky to be living and working on this beautiful island. Andy and I both grew up here on MDI (though he is a born and raised Mainer, and I am a Texan transplant). We have two daughters, ages 13 and 10, who have thankfully taken on our favorite pastimes with gusto: hiking, sailing, swimming, gardening and exploring Acadia's gems with our trusty hound are at the top of our lists.
Why Susan and Andy chose Southwest Harbor
Island Watch was built in the early 1960s by the daughter of a lighthouse keeper. The panoramic views and vistas were no doubt reminiscent of her years living on nearby outer islands, and they are most certainly what attracted us to it. To have such a beautiful gathering spot so close to town but remote enough to feel far away from it all is a unique opportunity that we feel so lucky to have. We look forward to sharing it with you!
What makes this House unique
Island Watch is pet friendly, spacious, quiet, has magnificent panoramic ocean, mountain, islands, and village views. Two fireplaces and two complete kitchens for stretching your group out! We also have Wi-Fi, plus a HD television in many rooms with a wide selection of channels to choose from. On those rainy days, sit by the fire and enjoy reading, or play one of our many board games. You can walk to the village from our front door; it is a quarter of a mile hike through the woods to town to get an ice cream or browse through our many shops. All of the rooms have their own bathrooms. We have safe off the street parking for over a dozen cars.
