Beautiful home in serene setting.

  • 5 of 5

This. Is a beautiful home in a perfect setting. It is set in a serene wooded area. The owner has gone to great lengths to decorate the house with great taste and to provide all of the comforts of home for the renter.

We loved staying in the carriage house. We felt just like at home.

  • 5 of 5

We just loved the property. It was well taken care of. We liked that there was a little path not to far from the house that took us on a hiking adventure lol. This place was a great place for us to enjoy our honeymoon and I am glad we decided to stay here. Hopefully in the future we will be back.

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

The carriage house is lovely, super clean, and well cared for and appointed. The setting is peaceful and private, whether enjoying the starry sky from the outdoor seating area or sitting and reading on the window seat. The location is a short drive to the center of Southwest Harbor and the nearby parts of Acadia, and not far from Bar Harbor and the busier section of the park. The owners are the only neighbors within eyesight, and they were very respectful of our privacy while also being friendly and letting us know they were there if we needed anything. But everything we needed was already there! We hope to be back soon!

Perfect Cottage for Two

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week in Southwest Harbor and had a wonderful time. Staying on the quiet side of the island is a great way to go. It isn't far from any of Acadia's attractions and there are some wonderful trails right nearby. The Artist's Retreat was perfectly clean. We have rented other cottages before, but never one as well set up or as clean as this one. If we visit again, there is no doubt we will try to book this spot again.

By far one of our best VRBO experiences

  • 5 of 5

The property is absolutely perfect and the owners have spared no expense in making it very much like your own home. Everything you need and more, and if it's not there they will get it.

They suggested activities and dinning establishments that were excellent. Great location for all island activities. We would love a return visit.

Great little cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was perfect. The place is nestled back in the woods a little ways, so it was nice and private. Everything looks as if it was recently updated, and there are a ton of little details that let you know the owners take pride in having people stay there. We'll definitely try and stay here again if we're ever back in the area.
