I have grown up going to MDI and am so glad to own this home, built by my parents in 1990. My daughters have caught the bug and love it as much as I do, may retire here!
Owner purchased this House in 2008
Why Owner chose Southwest Harbor
We love Acadia National Park and spend every free minute climbing the mountains, swimming in the lakes, biking, kayaking... ahhh! Our dogs love it as much as we do!
What makes this House unique
Maine is a state of mind! We spend all our time outdoors but love to hang out by the fire on rainy or cold days, the glass round table is perfect for puzzles

Perfect family rental for Acadia Vacation
We had 6 adults and 3 kids in our party. House was perfect for everyone. Open concept. Great sitting out on deck enjoying the views. House had everything you could need (dishes, pots, high end appliances, beach towels....). Only 20 min from Acadia and Bar Harbor. Everyone in my family enjoyed their time at the house and area.
Thanks for your kind remarks and so glad the house suited your needs!
Excellent Home for two families with kids, on vacation
We enjoyed Diamond Rock very much. Adults and kids, aged 12-17.
Two families lived comfortably here for a week with each set of parents in their own master bedroom. Clean house with everything that we needed.
Southwest Harbor is about 25 minutes from Bar Harbor, but we never really experienced any traffic. Easy 20 minute ride over to the bike trails to begin our day or cycling or hiking or both.
We made many meals in the home as going out was expensive and difficult for 9.
Used the well stocked kitchen and gas grill on the deck to make whatever we needed.
We did not use the TV, but wifi worked well. No complaints.
Plenty of seating for meals and relaxation.
Even had a few indoor fires for the kids as the nights were cool.
We used the deck all the time - in the morning we'd enjoy breakfast. After returning from our day's activities, we might have a drink or two there.
In the evening, we'd star gaze. With less light pollution, we could see satellites passing overhead (solid white dots) and it turned out to be a great week to observe the International Space Station. We had an app on our phone that told us where and when it'd pass - just a lucky week that it passed over us on three straight moonless nights.
Absolutely wonderful house - perfect for our family, equipped handsomely, ideal location. The best!!
We truly loved this house and recommend it to any and
every family who wishes to enjoy the western side of
Acadia NP. Ideally situated just outside Southwest Harbor,
it has lovely dining and family space on the first floor and
many quiet bedrooms on the ground floor, all with good
mattresses. The deck is delightful, the light is fabulous, the
kitchen well stocked with every imaginable cooking
device, the grill substantial, the neighborhood peaceful, and
the location convenient to everything, the owner (Anne)
friendly and accomodating and eager to please. We cannot
imagine a more lovely vacation home!!!
The property was very unique and spacious... plenty of rooms for our three families.
There was a lovely kitchen with plenty of work space and new appliances. Lovely deck and even shuffleboard in the basement.
No regrets - this one is a winner!
There are so many wonderful things to say about Diamond Rock! The 2 master suites and 3 1/2 bathrooms were perfect for the 5 of us (2 couples & our single 25 year old daughter) and there were 2 bedrooms to spare! The natural light that fills this house was wonderful! This beautiful home is spacious - giving the early risers a place to sip their coffee & talk without waking the others. The air conditioning was a welcome amenity! Living room had plenty of seating for the 5 of us. We put the game table to good use in the evening and had plenty of room around the dining room table to eat and plan the days excursion. Loved the fact that the kitchen was open to the living room so no one was excluded from conversations. Quality built home (wood trim warm & inviting), tastefully decorated, very clean, extra pillows & blankets, kitchen had all the essentials, and property well maintained. The washer & dryer high quality & looked new, centrally located to all bedrooms. House surrounded by beautiful trees but you can still see the ocean. Upper deck wraps around & lower deck has a clothesline. Such a quiet location - totally relaxing! Appreciated the wireless, especially when our security alarm went off at home - we were able to logon right away to see which sensor went off. The bedrooms are spacious - so nice to be able to unpack & have room to move around. The whole house is layed out so well! This home is in a great location - secluded but close to downtown southwest harbor & a short drive to Bar Harbor. The owner gave timely replies to questions and made many great recommendations for grocery shopping, dining and activities - a huge & much appreciated help to us as first timers to MDI. Two bouqets of fresh flowers greeted us when we walked in & we enjoyed them all week. The weather was wonderful every day we were in town so we weren't 'home' much but had it rained we would have been quite comfortable lounging around the house and would have used the TV and DVD player. It is without reservation we recommend Diamond Rock to you!
Our Favorite Place to Relax
Diamond Rock is our favorite vacation spot. The house is perfect, from location to layout, to all of the extra amenities. The design is comfortable and inviting with many extras to make it comfortable and easy to relax, prepare our own meals in the well stocked kitchen, or recuperate from a day of hiking in the park. We enjoy the quiet side of the island and find it easy to get to all points of interest. Southwest Harbor is minutes away and has bike rentals for the Carriage Roads, restaurants, and shops, as well as stops for the free Island Bus if you don't want to drive to other parts of the Island. The top of the mountain provides wonderful views of the sound as well as the night sky. We can't wait to return!
