Recent Southwest Harbor reviews
We loved it!
"Owners, Jon and Nancy, were most kind to our family. We found the water-view and the property to quiet and peaceful. One can see that Jon and Nancy take pride in their gardens and property. Top Sail was clean, well equipped and maintained. The property was accurately depicted in the photos and written description. Top Sail comfortably sleeps 8. Having a washer and dryer, two kitchens and two baths was most convenient. As we paddled in their kayaks, we enjoyed looking at the boats in Southwest Harbor. Southwest Harbor has cute shops and several nice eats. Beals: informal, great lobster; The Little Notch: excellent bake goods and sandwiches; and Sips' blueberry pancakes are awesome. The ride was easy to beautiful Acadia NP and Bar Harbor. Sunrise and sunset in Acadia are memorable. Bar Harbor is so much fun with shops, eats and excursions. I highly recommend Top Sail and I would return again."

"Sow's Ear is the perfect destination and home base for an MDI vacation. The pictures do not show the lovely attention to details and the cozy, comfortable nature of the cottage. There was plenty of room for a family of four. The kitchen is well stocked, the bathrooms are immaculate, the bedrooms are spotless and comfortable, and the neighbors and owners are friendly and helpful. Our teenage boys took part in a daily adventure/rock climbing camp located in Bar Harbor, which allowed my husband and I long leisurely days exploring the island and relaxing. Some of the best carriage roads are about a mile away. I could not imagine a better home base on MDI. However, I would not recommend this home for travelers with small children. There are too many interesting things to touch!"

"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"!"

"Acadia has always been one of my favorite places, so it was a treat to bring my family for their first visit. Northeast Harbor has just the right balance of quietness, quaintness, friendliness, and ease of living after spending days exploring and hiking. The park and the other side of the island were both easily accessible. Town is just a couple of blocks away with everything you need, including a couple of places with great food and baked goods. The larger grocery store in Bar Harbor is only 15 minutes away. This brightly colored, comfortable and well-equipped cottage was the perfect place to call home. We loved the timber framing, the large kitchen, the spacious rooms, and especially the covered porch & outdoor eating area where we could linger over breakfast and morning coffee. The owners, who were onsite, were extremely hospitable and helpful with anything we needed, including recommendations for places a little off the beaten path. Many thanks to the owners for making our visit to Acadia such a special one with their hospitality and friendship. We hope to be back for a longer visit next time!"
