  • Charming house in perfect fall setting!

    "I stayed here for one week at the beginning of October (the perfect time to see all the beautiful fall leaves) and cannot say enough pleasant things about the house, the owner of the house, and the surrounding area. In all, the house held me, my wife, another couple and their toddler and a teenager quite comfortably. The kitchen was absolutely fantastic--plenty of room, beautifully appointed and far more supplies, pots and pans than any of us were expecting. And the wifi (which was incredibly fast) and washer and dryer were also very nice little bonuses that we enjoyed throughout the week. But the overall consensus seemed to be that the best part of all about the house was the gorgeous view. What better way to wake up every morning than by looking out of one's window and taking in the sea and mountains all in one view. Absolutely breathtaking! The owner, Claudia, was more than helpful and kind in the process leading up to renting the house, but also gave us lots of recommendations and help once we arrived there. All of her recommendations of things to do in South West Harbor and the surrounding area were spot on and ended up being some of our favorite things that we did on the trip. The house itself is also quite centrally located, which proved perfect for day trips to Southwest Harbor, Seal Harbor, Acadia National Park and the surrounding area, not to mention all of the restaurants, lobster pounds, bakeries, book shops and hiking trails all within a bike ride or 5 minute drive. Would highly recommend this lovely house to anyone and will definitely keep this little gem in mind the next time we return to Maine!"

  • Perfect location

    "My family and I enjoyed a week at this beautiful cottage by the sea! Southwest Harbor is breathtakingly beautiful, this charming home was w wonderful place to come back to at the end of a day of biking, hiking and swimming. The yard was large enough to set up games and the large front porch a great place to gather (Mosquitos were our only challenge). Bedrooms large and beds very comfortable, bathrooms have all been updated. The only drawback was the furniture in the living room, dining room. Very worn down and not suitable for 6 ft. Tall men. Also the internet service was not dependable. Other than those issues our memories of this vacation house will be treasured."

  • Perfect little cottage!

    "My husband and I were celebrating our 32nd anniversary and booked the delightful "Safe Harbor" cottage. We couldn't have been more pleased. It's beautifully decorated, very clean and nicely appointed, and the view of picturesque Southwest Harbor is wonderful. We spent a lot of time in those adirondack chairs in the pictures just watching the comings and goings of the lobster boats and sailboats…it never got old! The location is also very convenient to the shops and restaurants of the village of Southwest Harbor. It is very close to the road, but since this is "The Quiet Side" of Mt. Desert, it was never a problem for us. Christie, the owner was very nice and accommodating…the internet wasn't working when we got there so we called her. She had it fixed the next morning. We would love to go back again soon!"

  • A perfect stay for mother/ daughter bicycle adventure

    "My mother and I found this farmhouse cottage to be very quiet, relaxing and clean for our short vacation. We had a lovely stay in this perfectly spacious cottage for two adults -two porches, large bathroom with washer and dryer, and open kitchen/dining/living room. A highlight for me was the strong water pressure in the shower after our days of hiking and biking. The island shuttle stop is a short walk/ride near the Southwest Harbor post office. The free shuttle schedule can get a bit confusing. To catch the bus going into Bar Harbor-stand across the street from the marked bus stop area."
