Recent Southwest Harbor reviews
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."

"We had a fabulous week here at Head of the Harbor Overlook! Your lovely cottage more than lived up to our expectations! It's in a great location and we found it very clean and comfortable. The views were great and the house amenities were very thoughtful. It really was a "home away from home"!"

"The house is even lovelier than the pictures. It's clean, beautifully decorated with lots of windows for the beautiful views in every direction. The garden is also tastefully designed and well tended. Grocery and specialty shops are within 5 minutes. We stayed an extra day and still never ran out of things to do. Bar Harbor and main Acadia is just 30 minutes away and a pleasant drive. There are Acadia attractions right in Southwest Harbor about 10 minutes away. The Island Explorer bus service has a stop a block away. Great restaurants (Beals) are within walking distance. It was interesting to watch the fishing boats come in and out of the harbor. The sunsets are viewable from the patio or the dock. Would rate this rental 6 stars if possible."

"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."
