Recent Southwest Harbor reviews
50th birthday and long awaited visit to Acadia NP
"My wife and I have been talking about going to Acadia NP and Maine for about 20-years. We couldn't have chosen a better place owned by better people! Jon and Nancy are wonderful people and very welcoming. We shared some California wines together. We planned our trip to try and miss the season rush and it was perfect. Our daily hikes were virtually by ourselves and the Lobster Pounds opened a few days before we left our, so no shortage of the good stuff! This property and it's location is absolutely fabulous! It's close to everything you would want and the view from the deck is amazing. This trip was everything (and more) than we could have hoped for. Thanks Jon and Nancy for being such great hosts!!"

"This was our third and longest visit to Mt. Desert Island. We knew we wanted to stay in Southwest Harbor and I was delighted to find the one-bedroom Carriage House. It was the perfect space for two people. Very quiet, comfortable and well appointed. A great place to unwind from the stress of everyday life. The location is within walking distance of "downtown" Southwest Harbor and Flying Mountain trail head. Debbie (owner) was great to work with through the whole rental process and promptly responded to all inquires and questions. We would definitely stay here again!"

"The cottage is perfect for a single person or a couple, is fully equipped, clean and comfortable. Great views of the ocean and Duck Island and Little Duck Island. Quiet, except for the sound of the ocean, birds, and the occasional lobster boat. Good restaurants within a very short drive; Red Sky was particularly excellent. The owners are very attentive, responsive and pleasant. Special place."

"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"!"
