The space
Offering some of the best ocean side views of Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island! Located in Southwest Harbor, 20 minutes away from Bar Harbor and the Park Loop road--- and minutes away from many park associated trails and a lighthouse. The Moorings Inn is a pet friendly, historic, ocean side inn with our own private beach and boat rental service on site. We pride ourselves in the uniqueness, history, and character of our property, and how it forces you to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of everyday life!
Like many small businesses in Maine, we do not have a/c in any units or buildings---- our location right on the water keeps us nice and cool even during our "hot" summer days, with fans in all rooms and cottages to supplement.

Guest access
Guests staying in this suite have access to our Main Inns living room and den, our private beach and all accessories, and coffee inside the Main Inn in season!
During our off-season (Nov - May) the Main Inn building is closed. The building is locked, and due to the building being closed for the winter the driveway loop to that building will not be plowed. Please park in the parking lot and avoid the unplowed areas for obvious reasons.

Other things to note
This is a small studio efficiency as advertised, not a 1 bedroom apartment. Keep that in mind when adding people and pets, or if you require more space. This unit has a kitchenette, not a full kitchen. If you require a full kitchen, book accordingly. As per the pictures, the bed is in fact against the wall. This unit is on the 2nd floor. No A/C in any units.

This room has the potential to hear noise from the neighboring yacht yard. This suite is right beside another studio efficiency, and is below a 2 bedroom apartment.

We are a historic Inn, and all our accommodations reflect that. We are not modern chic, but a unique boutique!

All rates are based on double occupancy, and all persons over 2 are an extra 25$ per night (Airbnb adds the fee once you add the amount of guests).
Pet fee 25$ per night per pet non-negotiable (paid on arrival). Please make sure you either leave that cash in the room or pay that via cc.

All rooms have their own locks and keys.
All rooms have heat, with a thermostat on the wall!

The Moorings Inn is a locally owned, ocean-side, historic Inn with a rich history dating back to 1765. Located at the base of Somes Sound on Mount Desert Island, you can see all of the mountains of Acadia with clear views of the sunrise and sunset just from our backyard. We pride ourselves in our history, uniqueness, and this property's ability to make you disconnect from the hustle and bustle of everyday life! We offer wine & cheese nights in season for our guests-- to be enjoyed indoors or on our private beach! There is also a boat rental service on-site (Mansell Boat) that guests have priority for should they want a captained charter or to cruise around the island solo. Our location on the edge of Manset bay keeps our weather windy and cool, so we have no a/c in any units. Our Inn was built to be a personal house in 1765, and was turned into an Inn in 1916--- but has never lost its feel of a home! To respect its history, our Inn is filled with antiques, nautical themes, and many ship models. As with many historic Inns, the few families that have owned these buildings have worked hard to keep them as original and unique as possible--- so we are by no means modern-day chic, but are a unique boutique! Go to our website (mooringsinn) to check out more pictures of our Inn and grounds! We are located on 133 Shore Road, Southwest Harbor, ME.
