Nice house. Great location!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our trip to southwest harbor! We enjoyed the laid back atmosphere of the town and the proximity to hiking and kayaking. The house was just right. It included all the essentials and then some. We would definitely come back!

Beautiful, clean, well-kept home with so much charm. Very comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at the cottage. It is beautifully decorated and very clean. The owners really want you to feel like you're at home. Our family enjoyed the deck, the views, the games, the books, the movies, and the proximity to The Upper Deck and other restaurants. The house is in the perfect location for exploring all that Mr. Desert Island and Acadia have to offer. Our son didn't want to leave when the week was over! Simply put, it is a fantastic place to stay!

Perfect week at the Shoreside Cottage~

  • 5 of 5

It really doesn't get any better than this...

From the huge deck overlooking the harbor, to the quaint kitchen stocked with everything you need, from the great hostess, Christie, to the family style hospitality at Beal's Lobster House, from the King Size comfy bed upstairs to reading and dozing on the enclosed porch with twin beds... games and books lake swimming... and joy.......

It's our second time here, and we look forward to many more summers at the Cottage~

GREAT HOUSE AND FANTASTIC LOCATION

  • 5 of 5

The house had everything we needed. You could tell someone lives there, it is a home not just a rental. All you need is groceries.

The town is quaint and charming. The locals are fun, lots of great conversations and suggestions. Perfect place to relax after miles of hiking Acadia. Would love to come back......fastest week ever.

Cool 1930's cottage right by thr harbor.

  • 5 of 5

We certainly enjoyed our stay here. We came for a week in October to hike the Acadia trails and enjoy the Fall foliage. Southwest Harbor has so much charm and is much less crowded than Bar Harbor. The cottage was well equipped with whatever you might need for your vacation. I loved the sleeping porches though it was too cold to use in Oct.

I definately would stay here again.
