This charming two bedroom condo is ready for you and your family. Pack your toothbrush and come visit the 'Quietside', Southwest Harbor, a working harbor with Acadia National Park as its neighbor. Everything you need is right here including a washer/dryer, fully equipped modern kitchen offering a dishwasher, coffee maker, microwave, and lobster pot. We are located within walking distance of the village and harbor. Walk to the bakery, restaurants, and the free Island Explorer Bus. Bass Harbor Light House and Seawall (Acadia National Park) are just minutes away. Swimming in Echo Lake or kayaking on Long Pond are also nearby. Bar Harbor and the main entrance to Acadia is just a short drive (or bus ride) away. Bicycle rentals are within walking distance.

Two bedroom unit with handicap entrance if needed!: Please note this unit has many options depending on your needs. One-step entrance are just two of the options available.

Everything you need is on site for you; washer, dryer, gas grill, deck to enjoy your morning coffee and the harbor view. Spend the day exploring Acadia National Park and your nights enjoying the cool breeze; perfect for sleeping. Feel connected while away with high speed wireless internet access, cable TV, and phone.

The village is just a short walk and the bakery has daily selections to tempt your sweet tooth. The local eateries are one of our best kept secrets.

Guest Comments: We would like to thank you both for allowing us to rent your “home away from home”. It is SO nice! It is in the perfect location to do everything. We just love the décor. You could just tell that every detail was thought out perfectly.

As far as the amenities, well a FIVE STAR HOTEL as nothing on you!! You certainly go overboard with what you offer. We appreciated the 300 thread-count sheets, bath towels, beach chairs, kitchen pans, utensils, coffee filters, gas grill, etc.

We had a fabulous week!! Got 9 hours sleep every night, which has become a rare event. The weather was perfect, with a nice breeze coming off the water to keep us cool. We had good meals, walked into the village, rode bikes, and basically RELAXED and enjoyed spending quality time together.

Thanks again for everything we look forward to returning,

Sue and Walt

Great spot....conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

Immaculately clean and walking distance to shops and restaurants in Southwest Harbor. From this location one can explore all parts of the Acadia National Park within easy driving times. Lisa was very accommodating with any questions we had. Hope to get back here some day! Excellent handicap accessible home.

Our Maine Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved the EbbTide, it was so homey and comfortable. Lisa sent us an email right before our visit and told us all we would need is our clothes and a toothbrush, and it was true. The EbbTide had most everything we needed! We loved the location in the Quiet Side where things were less crowded and more relaxing. But we loved how close we were to Acadia and Bar Harbor which we visited frequently. Lisa was happy to answer any questions and give any suggestions for where to go or what to do. We loved our week at the EbbTide in Southwest Harbor!!!

The best spot in Southwest Harbor!

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the best VRBO that we have ever stayed in. This cozy and cute spot has everything you need. The kitchen is well stocked, it is clean and comfortable, and the beds sleep very well. We really enjoyed eating out on the patio every night, as it is nicely decorated. The owner is very welcoming and quick to respond to your needs. As a bonus, this place is a short walk to downtown Southwest Harbor. We absolutely loved our stay at Ebb Tide and would recommend it to anyone.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice words. EbbTide is a special place and I am happy you and your family were able to enjoy it as your home away from home. I want to take a minute to thank you and your wife for taking care of EbbTide as if it was yours. If I hadn't known you had small children, I never would have guessed they were in the unit. You took the time to leave everything in perfect condition. Best regards, Lisa PS. We wish you many more years together!!!

convenient and clean

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Ebbtide 275. We especially enjoyed walking to cafes in the Southwest Harbor little downtown where you don't have the hustle and bustle of other areas. The condo was comfortable and with the air conditioning units running also fairly quiet. It was a fantastic home base for our daily hiking and shopping trips. Overall, a great value while staying in MDI area. Thank you.

Charming and Comfortable Harbor Gem!

  • 5 of 5

This sweet condo is generously provisioned, bright, and super comfortable with every need anticipated and covered. Its location is perfect with easy parking, welcoming access, and maximum customer service. Good restaurants, shopping and necessities are only a block away. The quality of the furnishings, linens and products was especially enjoyable, and I recommend this property with enthusiasm.
