  • Outstanding House and Views and Vacation

    "This is the 3rd time we have stayed here and our 4th will be in October again. Each time we visit, we discover new things about Swans Island and love this house even more. My brother and I have lived all over the US and in SE Asia (Bangkok, Thailand and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia) and we have traveled extensively. Without question, this house and our stay on Swans Island is by far the best vacation we have ever had. Thats why we continue to return. The house is spectacular in terms of the view and accommodations. My brother is a grommet cook and every utensil and appliance are available along with a marvelous gas range and stove. The house is the most comfortable I have ever stayed in. The fireplace is perfect at night and we have experienced both warm days and snowy evenings in October. Our last visit, we hitched a ride with a local lobster fisherman and took an all day hike around Marshall Island. Beautiful and peaceful scenery. Loved it so much, we hitched a ride again but this time to Frenchboro which was even more beautiful. We normally buy lobsters off the boat at the Co-Op or from Normy and Nancy Burns. We have also collected snails and mussles at Fine Sand Beach and seen the bald eagle who lives near by. We have also fed nuthatches and chickadees from our hands on the main house deck. I cannot say enough good things about this house as well as the wonderful owners Clark and Barb. They have always made our visit and stay perfect. Looking forward to many returns.

  • Fall Vacation at the Boat House

    "The pictures of the interior of the Boat House were very accurate. The remodel of the home was tastefully done and up to date. The views of the harbor from the living room were spectacular. We stayed at the end of the season and it was a bit chilly. The heating system was a bit of an issue as the pipes banged at night which interrupted our sleep. We also new it was a working harbor but if you were a light sleeper the fishermen and boats would wake you up early in the morning. We are early risers so that was not an issue. The owners should also let guests know that there is a room attached to the house that harbor/marina folks use. That did startle us when we first heard people in the room. Some other improvements would be to update the linens and towels, connect tv to cable in the bed room , a vacuum cleaner, and to leave instructions on how to use the VCR. Aside from the few things we mentioned it was a nice place to stay."

  • A wonderful retreat

    "My husband and I spent a lovely week in the Chalet and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owners provided everything we needed, including lobster pots and lots of dishes, cups and serving ware. Towels and blankets were plentiful. We especially enjoyed our early morning coffee on the deck watching the tide come in and the neighborhood clam diggers. The house was spacious, clean and well organized. I highly recommend this if you want a quiet, somewhat secluded place where relaxing is your top priority."

  • What a Wonderful, Comfortable Place

    "This cottage is in such a beautiful setting you almost hate to leave. And when you do you don't have to go very far. The causeway at the end of the semi-private lane lured us down there morning and evening every day to watch the tide flow in and out of Norwood Cove. The heart of Southwest Harbor with its restaurants and shops is an easy walk away. Beautiful Bass Harbor is just down the road. As mentioned earlier, the house has everything you need from cooking gear to spices to laundry detergent and paper goods. It has good Wi-Fi and cable TV. It has nice towels and sheets and very good beds. The owner's book was full of great suggestions, and we took advantage of their ideas almost every day. The Knollette is not a fancy place, but it is a very accommodating place. We loved it from the moment we first saw it. The four of us Acadia first-timers agree that Southwest Harbor and the Knollette is the place to be on Mount Desert. We will be back."
