Recent Southwest Harbor reviews

  • Serenity surrounded by beauty

    "I have stayed at the Keyhole a few times over the years, and it always feels like coming home. I am a photographer, and couldn't stop taking pictures while on the island, it was beautiful everywhere we went. We enjoyed delicious lobsters, and quiet breakfasts on the deck. We never managed to hike all the trails we wanted to, and I will be happy to come back to do some more."

  • Fantastic Place To Stay with easy access to Acadia

    "Apple Cottage was wonderful and the perfect place for a family of four to stay. The cottage was immaculate! Views from the deck and property of the Cranberry Isles were excellent. At low tide we enjoyed finding sand dollars right off the property. Owner was responsive, very friendly, and clearly loves Mount Desert Island. She made excellent restaurant and hiking recommendations. Southwest Harbor is a lovely community with nice options for eating-out or picking up necessary supplies. If you stay at Apple Cottage you will be happy that you did."

  • 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!"

  • 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."
