"My extended family stayed a week at the Captain Nathan Clark house and we found it an ideal location for our family reunion. The house itself is historic and beautiful, and with it's innumerable additions and remodels over many decades it has a funky charm as well. We found it as comfortable as an old shoe! It actually has two kitchens (which we designated as "food" and "beverage") 2 family rooms, as well as a formal dining room with a view of the harbor. The layout allows for many people to cook and eat together, but also to find space to spread out and find peace and quiet. There are two different outside porch areas and extensive yards and gardens. My teenage kids enjoyed the fascinating old books and great collection of games and puzzles.
It is only a 1 minute walk to Beal's Lobster Pier, where we ate MANY times during the week (and also watched an amazing fireworks display on the Fourth), and an easy stroll into town. A great surprise and wonderful addition to town is the Common Good Cafe, where for a donation to the local soup kitchen you can eat your fill of the BEST popovers on the island (Sorry, Jordan Pond House!). Another nice surprise: just a very short walk up the side street to the lovely grounds of the Claremont Hotel and Xanthus restaurant and dockside cocktail bar. It was nice to be staying in the relative tranquility of Southwest Harbor with bustling Bar Harbor being still just a short drive away. Southwest Harbor is real "working water" with fishing boats, Coast Guard and more. It was a great reunion and we will be back!"

"My husband and I spent a week at the Knollette and it was absolutely perfect. The house itself is very well-appointed - comfortable, attractive, cozy, with everything we needed. It was a great place to come home to after canoeing, hiking, and eating lobster (LOTS of lobster). The size and space were perfect for the two of us and all our gear (including bike and canoe). And the location is spot on. The house itself, located in a wooded section of a dead-end road near the causeway, feels very private, but it is within easy walking distance of Beal's Lobster Pier (did I mention lobster?) as well as the great restaurants in Southwest Harbor. It was close to all the places we wanted to hike and paddle, and the ability to walk to town for dinner and ice cream made every evening so relaxing. Really, the perfect vacation rental."
