Recent Southwest Harbor reviews

  • Best kept secret on Mt. Desert

    "This cabin was amazing and perfect for our family of 3. The view, the shoreline, the babbling brook, the seclusion, the creek, the "rustic cabin..where do I begin?We absolutely loved it! We felt like we were back at summer camp only in a nice log cabin with running water, hot water, electricity, comfortable beds. The bedrooms are on the creekside of the house attached to the log cabin side by a breezeway. That made it nice for those that want to sleep in to not be disturbed by the early riser. I hope we can come back again."

  • Moon Shining on Somes Sound

    "Our stay at the cottage was more than we could have imagined. The setting was lovely with a full moon shining on the water from the great room window. The cottage was well decorated and it felt like you were at home but on vacation. It had ever thing you need and then some. We loved the fact that we could take a short walk(5 minutes) to get fresh lobster dinners and then browse the downtown Southwest Harbor. Our son and daughter-in-law had date night each night in the window seat. One on his computer and the other reading her book. Just too cute!!! We really liked the fact that we could be in the park in about half an hour and also to Bar Harbor. We were very thankful that we could leave the bustle of Bar Harbor and return to our cozy quiet cottage. So glad we chose not to stay in Bar Harbor but enjoyed the quiet side of the Island. The owners happen to be in town at the same time and offered many suggestions but still gave us our privacy. We enjoyed meeting them. We would and have recommended it to many of our friends. We could not have been any more pleased with our choice in this cottage. One of our better vacations because there was something to do for all our ages."

  • September in Southwest Harbor

    "We had three couples staying at the cabin for one week the second week of September. Our objective for the week was to bike and hike the Carriage Roads in Acadia. The location of our cabin was perfect. Easy to find, felt secluded but actually not far from the interesting town of Southwest Harbor. The house was well-equipped and cheerfully and comfortably appointed. Our week had just one morning of rain and the rest of the week was cool but sunny and perfect for hiking and riding the Carriage Roads. One of our group ran every morning along the picturesque Shore Road safely. The house was well-maintained and we would unhesitantly recommend the cabin to others."

  • A Great Time Was Had By All!

    "We were a party of 6 friends. Everyone loved the house.It was so warm and comfortable. It felt like a well loved family home that always welcomed friends who came to visit. We had everything we needed in the house.Everything was taken care of very well. All the suggestions from the owner were helpful.We would all recommend this lovely house to anyone interested. Southwest Harbor was a charming town with lots of things to do. Bar Harbor was nearby. Please check the cruise ship arrival schedule before you go there to make sure 6,000 people are not getting off the ship the day you plan to go there. Be sure to go visit the Granite Museum. The gent who runs is is one of the last granite men around knowing how everything was done in the old days. We only wish we could have stayed longer. Aleria Cottage was the perfect place to stay on a perfect vacation."
