Great location! Owners thought of everything!

  • 5 of 5

Newman cottage was perfect for our family vacation. The cottage had toys for our children, lobster pot for our lobster dinner, tree swings, sand toys, everything you need! The location is wonderful as well, the short walk to the shore was great. Having a fire in the chiminea was an added bonus! Plenty of space for 6 of us. We couldn't have asked for anything more!

Very well appointed house with responsive owners

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Newman Cottage. This property was probably the best appointed rental property we've stayed at to date. There are three upstairs bedrooms, one set up for two kids. Plenty of dishes and cutlery in the kitchen, a dishwasher and an efficiency washer/dryer. There are TVs with Netflix streaming throughout the house, a DVD library and WiFi. The owners live in a separate house at the back of the property and are very friendly and responsive. Despite being situated next to the road, the house is extremely quiet, as there was virtually no traffic. The location is convenient, the island is relatively small, so that it is a quick drive to anywhere you may want to go - for a hike, a bike ride or into one of several towns. We very much looked forward to our vacation and we weren't disappointed.

The cottage was exactly as advertised but more tasteful and homey than I anticipated.

  • 5 of 5

Newman cottage provided an excellent base from which to explore MDI. Southwest Harbor was a small unique and friendly community. Bar Harbor was 20 minutes away.

Cozy and convenient

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I stayed here while visiting my sister's family. It much closer to her home than hotels in Bar Harbor and a better value as well. Check in and all transactions were easy and we would definitely stay again.

Peaceful, charming old house by the side of the road

  • 5 of 5

Nicely updated old house, south of Southwest Harbor. Pretty walking path to Manset Shore begins across the street. Kitchen is well-stocked with dishes, pots & pans, utensils, lots of small kitchen appliances (3 types of coffee makers!). Quiet location, even though on road. Good internet connection; nice washer & dryer. Didn't need to fire up the pellet stove in the living room, but it looked inviting. Short drive to Bass Harbor Head lighthouse. Only a few cons - one bathroom, so you need to plan out your showers; no restaurants or shops within walking distance (but easy drive into Southwest Harbor). Very reasonable price for a whole house - would stay again.
