Recent Mount Desert Island reviews
Charm and Comfort in a wonderful setting
"This is a great spot to do Acadia. It's right in the center of the park in a charming old village. Very well furnished and comfortable, more so than appears in the photos. The owners are very helpful and gracious."

"What a find. My wife and I took our adult daughters and husband and boyfriend to Bar Harbor. The views from our home away from home was spectacular. The home is spacious and tastefully decorated. We really enjoyed the wrap-around deck. We use the grill several nights and the gas outdoor fire pit was awesome. The owner, Bonnie, was a gem. We had a slight problem the first night and she had it fixed immediately. My car broke down and she set me up with her mechanic who was terrific.
Our youngest and boyfriend hiked over 30 miles of Acadia National Park. The bus system is super. The Light House Boat tour is worth the money and time.
Our favorite things
Gaylin's restaurant for nice lobster dinners
Side Street Cafe for great lobster rolls and lobster stew
Beerworks for duh! Beers by Maine craft breweries
Maine-ly Meats. Great BBQ
And CJ's for the best blueberry pie ala mode or blueberry soft serve (we did this about every night)
In short don't pass up this destination and lovely home"

"We enjoyed our stay at this clean, private, quiet apartment in a beautiful location. Bass Harbor was a short walk as were some of the National Park sites. There are beautiful views from the private beach. Owners were very friendly and accommodating. All in all, it served us well as a quiet, relaxing home base as we visited may sites on the island. We would definitely stay there again."

"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!"
