Excellent stay at the Treehouse!
We truly enjoyed our stay at the treehouse, it was the perfect size for 2 people. Everything you need is already there so no need to pack a bunch of extra stuff. It was mostly secluded, there is a neighboring cottage that is beneath the treehouse, but when you are up there you don’t even notice. Overall it was a great stay. Southwest Harbor is lovely, and keeps you away from the hustle and bustle or Bar Harbor, and only 20 minutes drive to down town Bar Harbor.
Great Location - Adequate Space
This is an adequate place to stay in a great location on "the quiet side" of MDI. The owner, Anne, was very helpful and responsive to our needs! The apartment is very small, with a sloped ceiling in every room, so tall folks may not be as comfortable here. (My husband is 6'4)
A couple of improvements would go a long way towards making this space more enjoyable: screens on front windows and/or a screen door (no AC means you need a cross breeze to cool things off), and comfortable furniture for the deck. Because the apartment is small, , and the setting so beautiful, outdoor living space takes on great importance. There were 2 mismatched chairs (one metal, uncomfortable) and a grill on the deck. A pair of comfy chairs and a small table for drinks would really make a difference here! The mattress on the bed feels new and is comfortable, however pillows are old, flat and worn. Update these, too, please!
You can walk through the owners' yard to the beautiful rocky shore, but you cannot see the water from the deck; not sure why "long range views of water and Cranberry Island" was written into the description. Also, there is a house being built next door, so anyone booking this place August/September/October 2018 will hear construction noise all day on weekdays. Perhaps pricing should be adjusted until this project is complete as it does affect the tranquility quite a bit!
I don't like to post critical reviews, but travelers trusting their experience to a post on the internet need as much information as possible. A much nicer option is Anne's Cranberry Cottage next door, well worth the extra $30/night!
Nice, but could use some TLC
Nice, semi-private property close to hiking and all things Southwest Harbor has to offer. I felt the property description was a bit misleading. There is zero water view due to overgrown trees. There's also a new home being built about 400 yards away, so noise is a factor, and they start early. The Treehouse itself is cute and cozy, but definitely not for a tall person. I'm short and hit my head a few times on angled ceilings. Also could just use over all sprucing up, and perhaps an air conditioner for when it gets too hot. The owner's food suggestions were good, but I also took time to read the guest book. Helped us avoid some places too, very helpful. Overall, decent place if you're looking to just stay a couple of days.
Unique, quiet, rustic
I enjoyed the tree house, the sound of birds in the morning and walking down to the rocky shore. Confortable but could use a new mattress soon.
Cute little getaway in a perfect location.
This property was super cute and very private. It is a little small so if you are looking for a lot of space you may want to rent Cranberry house. However, there is a delightful deck to sit on and Anne was very attentive to our needs. Very clean and the path down to the water was very nice. Southwest Harbor was the cutest little town with a few great restaurants (Sips was my favorite). It was very easy to get to Acadia. It really was the perfect location. You really feel like you are in the woods with all the comforts of home, but you are just a short walk to a lobster pound and a short drive to town for anything you need, and a short drive to many hikes, lakes, and even the Lighthouse.
Very quiet and private. Just what we needed
Quiet, isolated and simple. For people who want privacy and to unwind.
