"My husband and I stayed with our daughter (8-year-old) for a week. The cottage is very comfortable and has everything one could need. It has a lot of charm and a lovely garden in the front. The shops and restaurants are a quick walk away, yet the location is private and quiet. We enjoyed walking the Shore Path every day and the southern entrance is very close. We brought our old golden retriever and it was wonderful to have a park just a block away for him. Acadia National Park is very close and easy to get to. The complimentary blueberry pie is a wonderful treat! We couldn't ask for anything more!"

"We came to Maine to raise a barn. This cottage was perfect for us. It was clean, cozy, and friendly. We had everything that we could possibly need. I did some cooking for our crew, and had everything that I needed. The owners were very responsive, helpful, and generous. The location was just a few miles from where we were working, and close to everything else that we needed. We had a very pleasant stay.
The only reason to hesitate in giving a great review, is that others will love the place as much as we did: Then it would not be available the next time we want to stay. The pictures do not depict the true feel of this lovely home.
Thank you Audrey and Ken from us, and all of our team of timberframers.

"We have been visiting SWH for 15 years and this cottage is our favorite yet. Wonderful views of the harbor, well stocked kitchen and great location for walking to town restaurants and shops.
Southwest Harbor is the perfect location for people who want to explore all that Mt. Desert and Acadia have to offer. It is much less crowded on the "quiet side" of Mt Desert and provides close access to Acadia's hiking trails, carriage roads and the island's good restaurants.
We will be back!"

"Beautiful place! Loved the deck and gorgeous view of the inlet. House was clean and well stocked with everything you could need. Beds were comfy. Having kayaks was great! So quiet and peaceful, yet close enough drive to see Acadia and Winter harbor."
