About the property

Experience an authentic working harbor environment!

This marina-side condo offers great access to views of all the comings and goings of an authentic working harbor. We cater to folks from all over, the local lobster fishermen to very upscale luxury yacht's. The views are spectacular and include the occasional Bald Eagle or Peregrin Falcon sightings.

We feature full size kitchen appliances and a lovely seating area and gas grill for those evenings outside. There's two bedrooms, the Master has a queen size bed with an attached bathroom. The nautical themed spare bedroom has a double bed with the bathroom across the hall. Both bathrooms feature double size walk-in showers, adaptive bathroom accessories are available. And a fold out couch in case you need more room. These adorable units are within walking distance to all area shops and the fabulous restaurants here in SWH. We are in the heart of Acadia National Park. Features of the park such as Bass Harbor Head Light and Echo lake are just minutes away. Take a hike up Beech Cliffs or St. Saviour for panoramic views of the island. Spend an evening exploring Bar Harbor and all of its shops and hustle and bustle. Make sure to try a whale watch tour or take a sunset cruise upon a Friendship sloop right from your doorstep!

This little slice of heaven has something for everyone!

This is a working marina and is very exciting and fun to be at. However it is not remote and quiet, the units are comfortable and accommodating but there is much activity during the day. Lobster boats start early in the morning and are great fun to watch, usually fresh lobster can be purchased right out front from the office and a cooker is available for your use.

Nice apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the Cannery. The apartment was clean and well equipped. The host, Christie was nice and easy to reach. Southwest Harbor was a better choice than Bar Harbor which has become too crowded for us.

Thank you

Nice, clean space

  • 4 of 5

My only issue was that the pictures present as the property has a direct view of marina which is not the case. The unit opens in a large marina parking with view of a huge 'gas tank' right in front of the windows of the 'stern' unit.

I was not particular disturbed by this being an active marina and noise but yes was not enthused by having to come out or sit out directly in a busy parking lot. One of the pictures shows a view of the marina is actually taken from the water facing end of large parking lot and not representing what you see from the unit itself.

Rest everything was very good, a very clean, well stocked and spacious unit, not too far from all the major activities. Christie was very nice about all the queries and nice to meet her in person too.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Stern cabin and it was very comfortable. It's a working Marina, so it was a tad loud in the mornings with trucks coming in, but they tell you that up front so we were prepared. The little town within walking distance was also great.

This is a marina side condo, very exciting with tons of things to do. It's location puts you close to all marine activity including yacht watching and lobster off-loading. It's close proximity to the village of SWH allows for leisurely strolls to area restaurants, galleries, shops, etc., or day trips to Acadia National Park and all it has to offer.
