"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."

"Our family use to camp on Mt. Desert Island years ago. We decided it was time to return but with real beds instead of tents and sleeping bags. Sunnymead is so charming and has such character. With adult children, we needed a house for everyone to have their own space. Our family of eight fit nicely here. The house is older and more like a real Maine cottage. It is well maintained and very clean. There are plenty of towels and bathrooms for everyone! The bedrooms are good size and the beds comfortable. We loved all the windows to open for the magnificent Maine breezes. The house is well supplied with dishes, glassware, pots and pans. The grounds are very nice with a good sized yard for children, surrounded by tall, lush trees. Our grandson LOVED the swing! We enjoyed dinner in the gazebo as well has taking our lobster dinner to the private shore area that is a brief walk from the house. Just remember flashlights if you stay til dark to stargaze. There are several picnic tables at the shore. Our grandson loved the history of the house as it relates to the book Fudgmania, and had fun looking for all the items mentioned. The house has one TV but you are in Maine and on vacation so I encourage you to not think about that! There is Internet available. The owner is so helpful. We had a minor issue in the first day and she was easy to contact and it was handled immediately. The house is not far from Southwest Harbor and is just off the road so it is very quiet and peaceful. Check out Cookies and More just up the street, or Little Notch Bakery for breakfast pastry in town. I hope it doesn't take me another 15 years to return!!"

"We have been visiting SWH for 15 years and this cottage is our favorite yet. Wonderful views of the harbor, well stocked kitchen and great location for walking to town restaurants and shops.
Southwest Harbor is the perfect location for people who want to explore all that Mt. Desert and Acadia have to offer. It is much less crowded on the "quiet side" of Mt Desert and provides close access to Acadia's hiking trails, carriage roads and the island's good restaurants.
We will be back!"
