About Louise Soucy
Our family home is right next door. We are year-round residents of Southwest Harbor. Our children attend the local schools and we are deeply involved in many aspects of our community.
Louise Soucy purchased this Cottage in 2009
Why Louise Soucy chose Southwest Harbor
Easy access to all of MDI from the cottage. Bar Harbor is a 15 minute drive, the summit of Cadillac Mountain is 13 miles, and the pleasure of the quiet village of Southwest Harbor is a few minutes' walk away.

Met our needs perfectly.
Well appointed house with everything necessary and in excellent condition. Good privacy and easy access to everything we enjoy in Acadia, carriage paths, hiking trails, harbor, coastal scenery, bird and deer viewing. Excellent house for winter or summer visit.
Perfect location! Beautiful cottage!
We want to thank Jim and Louise for sharing their amazing cottage with us. We arrived just in time to enjoy the MDI Marathon right in our front yard! Such an awesome experience! The cottage was clean and comfortable. Felt like home right away. And we were so close to everything that we wanted to do ~ mainly hiking the beautiful trails of Acadia with our dog. We are hoping to return in 2019!
Perfect cottage about a mile from town. Well maintained, comfortable and clean.
We have been renting this house for 5 years and it never disappoints. It’s an easy 20 minute walk to town, so you can have a nice dinner and wine and not worry about driving.
The property is well maintained and the owners are very responsive if you do have any questions. There is an eat in kitchen with a dishwasher and a great washer and dryer.
We enjoy the uncluttered space too- we’ve been to apartments where the decor was “charming, antiques and quaint” - meaning filled with so many tchotchkes that you could scream.
So if you’re looking for a nice relaxing quiet house in the Acadia Park area then this the place for you.
Comfortable lodging, great location
This is my third visit to Shell Cottage. Each has been an important part of my great experiences exploring Maine. A small, modest accommodation, but well located on the 'Quiet' side of Mt. Desert Island and very clean and well maintained.
Better than better
This is our second year at the shell cottage. We have booked for next year. Louise and Jim are welcoming and gracious hosts. The cottage is beautiful and is in walking distance into town. We love sitting on the porch and walking across the street to the butterfly garden. The cottage has all the amenities and is a wonderful place to be on vacation. The you very much for sharing the cottage and the Southwest Harbor experience with us.
Very comfy and clean.
Great little house in SW Harbor. The owners are very friendly, and they keep the home very nice, and clean. We would totally stay there again. A+++
Located on the quite side of Mount Desert Island. Minutes from Acadia National Park, hiking, biking and swimming. Ten-minute walk to the inner harbor.
