Recent Southwest Harbor reviews

  • Wonderful cottage, Wonderful vacation

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Seawall cottage close to Southwest Harbor. The cottage was delightful, comfortable and a pleasure to call home for a week. The view was amazing and a wonder to see first thing each morning. The deer were welcome visitors a few times during our stay! The cottage was well appointed and the bathroom was beyond amazing. We have visited the Acadia National Park area a few times and this was the best place we ever stayed and was very reasonably priced. The town of Southwest Harbor had wonderful restaurants and services. Whereas it was a little difficult to get in and out of the town due to road construction, the peacefulness and quietness of this part of the island was well worth the minor inconvenience. When we travel back to the area, my husband and I will definitely stay at this cottage if available. I only wish Grant had a larger property for rent here so we could bring the whole family!"

  • Perfect family week in Maine

    "We rented this house for two families with a total of four adults and four children, ages 6-11. It was the perfect home base for Acadia National Park; we were close to the entire park and just a 10-minute drive to parts of it. This is the quiet side of the island and not touristy like Bar Harbor but it is easy to get to Bar Harbor for food or shopping. The house has a gigantic family room with a pool table and every possible entertainment amenity. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes and cooking tools and drawers and cabinets are labeled, which is a brilliant idea. If you get tired of cooking we recommend the pizza and baked goods at Little Notch. Hosts were gracious and generous, and answered even the tiniest questions quickly. They even replaced a phonograph needle for us so we could show our kids how a record player works. :) One note: the house has five bedrooms, including the downstairs apartment. One of the upstairs bedrooms has its own bathroom but the room is accessible only through another bedroom. This worked fine for us but might be useful information. We would rent this house 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."

  • Time to Breathe

    "I have been coming to Keyhole Cottage for many years; the last time three years ago with my wife, who died less than a year later. This was the first year I've been back since then. Keyhole Cottage is a place to take time to breathe; to sit and listen and watch without the interruption of television; though there is wifi and so you can always check the news if you really want to. Since you are in the midst of Acadia National Park you are close to all the attractions that that wonderful place has to offer: hiking, bicycling etc. You can see the sunrise from Cadillac Mt, or you can walk a hundred yards to your own beach and to do the same. The accomodations are more than adequate and the cottage has a nice deck with the keyhole view of the water.A great place to be."
