Beautiful, private setting with incredible views.

  • 4 of 5

The house was comfortable for two people. We were very happy, but would have felt crowded with four. Convenient location in lovely SW Harbor. The shower was a little cramped and awkward (in a clawfoot tub with wraparound curtain). We LOVED watching the harbor seals sun themselves in the late afternoon. We would definitely return.

Amazing views and location, well equipped.

  • 4 of 5

On arrival we startled the bald eagle who flew off.

We spent the weekend watching the seal take plunges from a nearby dock and rear back up onto it, from the three huge living room windows facing the bay on two sides and the full length oceanfront deck. Cabin is very comfortable, beds reasonably firm, two armchairs, worked well for four adults. Quiet and private.

Gas fireplace extends into room and was very comfortable at 49F nights, so long as you keep the bedroom doors partly open. A small fan and extension cord would aid circulation.

Bring an extension cord and outlet strip, maybe a reading lamp- there are few outlets. Has full kitchenware , closet space, dishwasher, good water, a lot of bric a brac limiting your space to spread out.

Just south of the center of Southwest Harbour, you can choose to avoid the traffic and drive ten minutes south to several Park areas and trails, shore access, lobster shacks. Or head into town a mile or two North. Very convenient.

If you are elderly or balance-impaired be warned, the tall clawfoot bathtub is not suitable, with a tippy concave not flat floor, curtains all around, and *nothing* to hold on to equating to a balance challenge. For anyone else this is a marvelous place to stay.

Cozy SW Harbor Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the cottage. It was pleasantly rustic and fitting in the environment - perfect for our short trip trip to Mount Desert Island. . We spent two days in Acadia National Park, which was our primary reason for visiting, but we were also enchanted with all the beautiful small towns. They each had there own delightful personalities. The weather was chilly and damp while we were there so we couldn't really enjoy outdoor views from the deck and fire pit, but the views from the large windows of the harbor were wonderful. The gas stove kept us cozy in the mornings and evenings. The bedrooms were small but the queen size bed was comfortable. The kitchen had everything you needed for cooking. The place was clean and well maintained.
