Clean, quiet and comfortable
This is a great house to use as a base camp for trips to Campobello to Acadia NP. Our family enjoyed the beautiful views from the deck and foosball table. We did not have any moisture issues with the basement. The owners quickly answered any questions and we appreciated information on where to dine in the area. We were able to relax and enjoy our time in Maine.
We are so pleased to hear you had a great stay at Harbor View House and enjoyed the region. We hope you’ll keep us in mind for your next visit to Downeast Maine!

Spacious, clean and comfortable place in a lovely setting
Our family of 6 thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Harbor View House. While it is a little drive to get to other places, we liked that it was in a lovely, quiet setting up on a hill overlooking the harbor. We enjoyed hiking down to the water. The large kitchen and dining room was a plus for our large family, and the living room was spacious and had comfortable seating. The house was very clean. We enjoyed the use of the grill and the view from the deck was gorgeous. The ping pong and foosball tables were fun to have available, as well as the board games. We spent most of our time doing day trips to the surrounding areas: Acadia National Park (Mount Desert and Schoodic Peninsula, Lubec and the Quoddy Lighthouse, Campobello Island to see FDR's summer cottage, seeing the lobster industry at work at South Addison & Jonesport, Beals Island (with ice cream at Bayview takeout restaurant) and Machias. Wild Blueberry Land is a fun, kitschy place to visit and get a feel for the wild blueberry farming industry in the area - the fresh blueberry scones were amazing! We enjoyed take-out pizza from Elmer's Country Store. Travel to Acadia took about 1.5 hours, depending on what area. Overall we had a wonderful stay and would recommend it to families for a comfortable place to stay.
We are so pleased to hear you and your family enjoyed your recent stay at Harbor View House! It sounds like you really enjoyed all the Downeast region has to offer as it is beautiful here.
We welcome you back and hope you’ll pay us another visit on your next trip to the region!

Quiet Vacation Rental with Beautiful Views!
My family and I stayed at the Harbor View house for 4 nights during our vacation in Down East Maine. The house was centrally located for the places we wanted to visit from Acadia NP up to Lubec. The location of the house with its beautiful view over the bay and with it being surrounded by tall trees was just the place we were looking for in Maine for some peace and quiet. There is plenty of room to spread out around the house and the kitchen was outfitted with pretty much all one may need during stay. The large outside deck was a great place to eat breakfasts and dinners and to watch the sunsets and lobster boats, plus there is also a sun room with table if the weather is bad outside. We all enjoyed playing with the ping pong and foosball tables after a long day of exploring. The only drawback we noted was that the downstairs was very musty smelling, especially in the bedrooms. My sons both have asthma so we did not feel comfortable with them sleeping down there, so my wife and I ended up sleeping downstairs in the room with the two double beds. It was better when we had the sliding windows opened up and found a fan to help move the air, but musty again after we'd been out all day with house closed up. All in all, the location was great for what we wanted, the house was nicely decorated with all we needed, and the owners were very easy to work with during the whole reservation and payment process. Would definitely recommend to others but would hope the basement could be dehumidified to allow for a better sleeping experience.
Down east Maine vacation
We chose the Harbor View House due to its central location to Down East sites, as well as its close proximity to Acadia and points west. There is tons of room in the house, a fabulous kitchen and a great family dining table. While we were out too late most nights to enjoy it, the outdoor deck is great, and we used to grill to cook most of our meals. The kids totally enjoyed the foosball and table tennis rooms, and there are lots of other games to enjoy. The property is very quiet, and it was a pleasure each night to be able to leave the screened windows open to let the cool fresh air in. A true delight for any family stay!
We are so pleased you enjoyed your recent stay at Harbor View House!
Thank you for your reservation and we hope you will come back and pay us another visit here in Downeast Maine. It is so peaceful and relaxing and the scenic views are truly lovely.

Quiet, comfortable home away from home.
As a family of seven, it can sometimes be a challenge finding a place to stay. Harbor View House fit our needs perfectly. The view from the porch was fabulous. The kitchen was well stocked. The house was nicely decorated (and yet not full of breakables that made me nervous to have my three-year-old "run around.") For the rainy/foggy times, the TV, ping-pong and supply of games fit the bill. The local caretaker was nice... though fortunately we never had a need to call upon him during our stay.
As for Addison, it's a bit off of the beaten path (which we prefer... though plan for extra travel time and limited trips to the grocery store) but strikingly beautiful and charming. We spent most of our time on day trips traveling to Acadia, Machias, and Lubec but found the nearby beach and hiking to be wonderful as well.
Would definitely recommend the Harbor View House for a Downeast Maine vacation that can't be beat.
We are so pleased you enjoyed your recent stay at Harbor View House and we appreciate your wonderful review! We think our house is very family friendly so are glad to hear you were able to relax with your family and enjoy the house and all the region has to offer. We welcome you back and hope you will pay us another visit when you return to Downeast Maine.

Perfect spot to experience the real DownEast Maine
Harbor View House was ideal for us. We were two couples from Arizona spending the 4th of July week visiting friends on Beals Island, just 20 minutes away. The house has everything you want and it was spotlessly clean and organized while still being campy and fun. Lots of room to gather or for private time. Outdoor deck and grill with comfortable seating and an enclosed porch for enjoying the view on cool evenings. Good wi-fi and even movie channels plus a professional grade ping-pong table! We saw eagles and watched fireworks from the deck. Played golf in Jonesboro (Barren View GC) and ate the best lobster rolls ever at the shack just beyond the bridge on Beals Island.
All communications with the owners and the caretaker were easy and friendly.
The 5 star rating was unanimous from all of us. Thank you!
We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed your recent stay at Harbor View House! We are always appreciative of such positive feedback about the house, our services, and the surrounding area. We love it too and welcome those that want to explore this part of Maine as it is such a gem!
Best regards and we welcome you back anytime you'd like to pay another visit to Downeast Maine and the Addison area!
