Secluded Waterfront Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Secluded as stated. Very nice and clean. We had deer and gulls in the yard and harbor seals in the water just off the deck. Centrally located just outside of downtown Southwest Harbor.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time and highly recommend this place. The cabin has a great view, is easy to get to and from anywhere on MDI, and is very clean. We found it perfect for what we were looking for and comfortable for a couple (could be cramped for more than that). Storey King was very responsive with questions beforehand and made it clear he was available for anything we needed during our stay (though we didn't need anything and did not bother him). The cabin itself is secluded, even while being right off a main road. It give the equal benefit of having privacy when you want it but also being close to everything you need or want to see during your visit. The only thing that stops me from giving a 5-star rating is the bathroom, which could use an upgrade to the sink and a new shower head. The kitchen had all the utensils you need, the gas fireplace was plenty to warm the cottage, and the views of the harbor and the mountains of Acadia couldn't be beat.

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We love Eagle Watch and have enjoyed several restful vacations here. We were greeted by a bald eagle in the tree off the deck and a seal in the harbor. The cottage is well equipped and very comfortable. Our only suggestions would be to replace the toaster and to modernize the bathroom and replace the shower head.
