Guestbook comments from the owner

It had all the amenities we needed and we were very happy! We also really loved how we could continue on Long Pond Road to get to hiking trails and swimming holes.

Relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5

This property was exactly what we hoped for: clean, comfy and roomy for our family of five. Best of all, its tranquil setting in the woods provided the Maine "wilderness" experience we were hoping for, while being close to the many harbor towns on Mt. Desert Island and Acadia National Park. We'd like to come back!

Great Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay. The house was VERY clean and comfortable. Everything was in excellent shape. The house was isolated from the few other houses in the area by trees, giving a very private feel. We saw deer in the front and back yards. Great hiking trails were close by. Absolutely no complaints what-so-ever.

Not too big, Not too small. Clean as can be. Like new.

Well equipped. A bit of a drive from Acadia but not too far.

Well off main roads so very quiet. Nice wi-fi.

A comfortable cottage in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been more pleased with the Blueberry Hill cottage. So glad we decided to stay in Southwest Harbor. Only 20 minutes from Bar Harbor without the masses of people and noise. We hiked and biked everywhere and loved coming back to the cottage at night to relax and savor the view out the many windows. Plenty of places to eat in Southwest Harbor and the other villages that are in the area. We have stayed in several VBRO's and will place this cottage at the top of the list.

Very, very clean and large house

  • 5 of 5

The Blueberry house was a great house for our visit to Mt Desert Island. While the location was near Southwest Harbor, it was only about 20 minute drive to the Bar Harbor area. There is still sufficient hiking trails nearby, as well as a large grocery store and liquor store. The house was comfortable for 4 and was incredibly clean. There were plenty of pots, pans, dishes, and utensils in the kitchen. They are enough fans for each bedroom, which was needed because we were there when it was unseasonably warm. The view of the pastures and wooded area made it nice and quiet. The back patio area could use a larger table if you have a full house of guests.

Tip: Go to Dave's Seafood in SW Harbor for fresh lobster.

Beautiful place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was spotless when we arrived and so welcoming. It is a great location and has everything you need to enjoy your stay. We saw some deer and turkeys while sitting out on the deck, which was awesome. We really enjoyed our stay in Southwest Harbor and will definitely return. Kathryn, the owner, was a pleasure to deal with!!!
