"My husband and I, and 2 other couples just spent a week at this beautiful home and loved every minute. It is perfect because each couple has their own bdrm. and bath and the common areas are spacious and cosy. We were greeted with a gorgeous bouquet of lupine on the kitchen counter. The construction details of this home are amazing and agreeing with other reviews, the beds were very comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped(we only fixed breakfast), and the views will refresh your soul. We highly recommend "Il Bassino"!"

"Another great visit! The views are magnificent looking up at Acadia National Park across the water. The house is directly on the ocean with a dock. It was very roomy for a us with a large living room and wood stove. The town of Southwest harbor has a variety of stores and some excellent restaurants about 5 minutes away by car. Red Sky is a fantastic restaurant in the town - I'd really recommend that for the top night. There are numerous hiking trails in the area we used as well. We went to both Northeast Harbor and Bar Harbor - both an easy drive with great views on the way. The ocean here is unbelievably clear! Even had a harbor seal from the dock at night. A great vacation!"

"The web description doesn’t do justice to Grey Rocks! It is a well maintained 1890s mansion with all modern conveniences, in a gorgeous setting, with beautiful flowers in the yard and on the deck. It’s very private, at the end of a long gravel drive, woods on three sides and the rocky beach on the other. The back lawn is great for romping dogs and playing kids, and the full-length back deck is wonderful for picnics and hanging out and looking at the ocean, where you see (and hear) lobster boats going by. The kitchen is well-stocked with pots and pans, the dishwasher and laundry machines work well, and while there are only two showers in the four bathrooms, everything worked. We (ten people, two dogs) loved the house and the location** which made for an idyllic vacation.
** Five minutes walk to Thurston’s Lobster Pound – no parking hassle!"
