Dartholm, located on quiet Shore Road in Southwest Harbor overlooking the picturesque harbor, has had an unusual history. Originally built as a dance hall in the early 1900's, Dartholm was repurposed to become the summer residence for the president of Dartmouth (hence its unique name), and recently updated to be a gracious shingle-style cottage available for year-round living. Views from the traditional cottage are expansive, with yachts and lobster boats traversing the harbor, scenic views of Somes Sound, the Cranberry Islands and mountains of Acadia beyond. Dartholm optimizes what life on the waterfront has to offer.Dartholm has been beautifully restored and renovated, a wonderful blend of traditional elements and modern conveniences. There are five bedrooms in the main house with the master suite and an additional bedroom suite on the first floor, a warm and inviting living room, cottage-style dining room, modern chef's kitchen and den. Additionally, a seasonal one-bedroom guest house offers an additional living area with full kitchen, laundry and bath. Most rooms enjoy the wonderful harbor, island and mountain views. Dartholm has been impeccably maintained and includes a beautifully landscaped private back yard with deck, two-car garage, garden shed, deep water dock and two moorings. The Town of Southwest Harbor, a vibrant year-round community, offers a multitude of quaint restaurants and shops, and is a well-known center for all types of boating activity; certainly an area that would complement life at Dartholm.
