Recent Southwest Harbor reviews

  • Charming Home, Great Location!

    "My wife and I just enjoyed a lovely stay with our baby at this cozy cabin on the water. The house was in great shape, with a fully stocked kitchen, washer & dryer and pleasant furniture and decor. Furthermore, the owners (who spend the summer next door) were gracious and hospitable hosts-- they lent us their walking sticks for hiking around Acadia! We loved being in quaint Southwest Harbor, away from the touristy bustle of Bar Harbor. The home is steps away from Beal's Lobster Pound and about 15 minutes from "downtown" SH. The back porch looks out (through trees) to gorgeous Somes Sound, and we took advantage of the kayaks provided to paddle around and see some wildlife. Looking forward to our return trip!"

  • An AMAZING week at this beautiful Seawall cottage

    "This was our first trip to Acadia and we could not imagine nicer accommodations in such a wonderful location. Grant and Becky went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect when we got there and made sure our expectations were exceeded during our stay. The views from the beach and the deck were stunning. The grounds were wonderfully maintained and the garden was a treat to explore. The cottage was cozy, beautifully decorated, and well equipped (the wood stove came in handy during the cool fall evenings). This is the perfect location for easy access to all that Mount Desert Island has to offer. It is no surprise that this is one of the highest rated rentals on MDI. We are definitely looking forward to our next trip to Acadia and the Seawall Cottage."

  • 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."

  • Wonderful Time in Southwest Harbor

    "We spent almost three weeks in Southwest Harbor and absolutely loved the cottage. It is very bright and airy, and well equipped with modern appliances. The kitchen was well equipped as well, which is a plus for travellers who enjoy cooking, like we do. We were traveling with our 6-month old son, I would definitely recommend this cottage for traveling with young children. The location in great, it's only a short walk into town and a short drive from Acadia National Park attractions on the quiet side of the island. We enjoyed going to Beal's Lobster Pound down by the pier, getting bread from the Little Notch Bakery and produce from the farmer's market. There is also a liquor store nearby with an interesting selection of American craft beers. There are also many hiking opportunities nearby, including a few easier trails that are great for doing with babies/small children. Echo Lake is also a very short drive away, with a nice beach and water that is warm enough for swimming. We will definitely consider renting again next time we go down to Mount Desert Island."
