Recent Southwest Harbor reviews

  • Great place!

    "We (6 adults) came from Arizona, Virginia and Minnesota for a week of family fun. We found this house to have fabulous beds and a fantastic view. It's an attractive, comfortable home with a great kitchen too. We loved everything about it."

  • What a Wonderful, Comfortable Place

    "This cottage is in such a beautiful setting you almost hate to leave. And when you do you don't have to go very far. The causeway at the end of the semi-private lane lured us down there morning and evening every day to watch the tide flow in and out of Norwood Cove. The heart of Southwest Harbor with its restaurants and shops is an easy walk away. Beautiful Bass Harbor is just down the road. As mentioned earlier, the house has everything you need from cooking gear to spices to laundry detergent and paper goods. It has good Wi-Fi and cable TV. It has nice towels and sheets and very good beds. The owner's book was full of great suggestions, and we took advantage of their ideas almost every day. The Knollette is not a fancy place, but it is a very accommodating place. We loved it from the moment we first saw it. The four of us Acadia first-timers agree that Southwest Harbor and the Knollette is the place to be on Mount Desert. We will be back."

  • 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."

  • 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."
