Recent Southwest Harbor reviews
The BEST place to stay on the island
"When I say that this was a dream cabin, I mean it. I road trip alone, so was looking for something practical and comfortable, yet secluded and scenic. This cabin went above and beyond.
The beds were comfortable, and everything in the kitchen worked perfectly. Having a washer and dryer was awesome...I used it a few times when I got dirty on hikes.
It's about 100 steps from the water, and having a private beach is absolutely incredible. I ended each night by having a beer on the dock. It was perfect. Also, you're on the "quiet side" of the island, which is really nice, as Bar Harbor can get NUTS during the weekends and summer months.
Ben was incredibly helpful and got back to me quickly. The price can't be beat.
I would HIGHLY recommend getting this cabin. When I come back to Maine, I can't imagine staying anywhere else."

"The web description doesn’t do justice to Grey Rocks! It is a well maintained 1890s mansion with all modern conveniences, in a gorgeous setting, with beautiful flowers in the yard and on the deck. It’s very private, at the end of a long gravel drive, woods on three sides and the rocky beach on the other. The back lawn is great for romping dogs and playing kids, and the full-length back deck is wonderful for picnics and hanging out and looking at the ocean, where you see (and hear) lobster boats going by. The kitchen is well-stocked with pots and pans, the dishwasher and laundry machines work well, and while there are only two showers in the four bathrooms, everything worked. We (ten people, two dogs) loved the house and the location** which made for an idyllic vacation.
** Five minutes walk to Thurston’s Lobster Pound – no parking hassle!"

"My husband and I, and 2 other couples just spent a week at this beautiful home and loved every minute. It is perfect because each couple has their own bdrm. and bath and the common areas are spacious and cosy. We were greeted with a gorgeous bouquet of lupine on the kitchen counter. The construction details of this home are amazing and agreeing with other reviews, the beds were very comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped(we only fixed breakfast), and the views will refresh your soul. We highly recommend "Il Bassino"!"

"This cozy cabin is convenient to both Acadia National Park and Southwest Harbor. The cabin oozes with charm and features a beautiful wooded location on a secluded cove. The owners are non-intrusive but very friendly and helpful. We were 100% satisfied. A great find!"
