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."

  • 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."

  • "Home away from Home"

    "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"!"

  • Clean & comfortable

    "Our family stayed here during our 1st trip to Maine. The house was very clean and nicely decorated. The beds were all comfortable and the kitchen had pretty much everything you needed if you decided to cook while there. It was nice to have a comfortable, quiet place to go to at the end of the day after being busy exploring all of MDI during the day. There were some great restaurants in town and all the major attractions are within 1/2 hour away."
