Our 2017 Family Reunion at Harbor Watch was a total success! Location and property were great!

  • 5 of 5

Every year our family gathers from New York, Texas, Boston, and the SF Bay Area to share new experiences together. This year we chose Harbor Watch and we'll be talking about this wonderful, welcoming, quiet, convenient, spacious, clean, inviting home for the rest of our lives! We all loved being there (ages 4 months to 70) and recommend it to any size group (we were 9 adults, 3 children, 1 infant, and Jen-the-dog). Our hosts, Robert and Karen, couldn't have been more attentive and accommodating. We couldn't have asked for more gracious hosts. South West Harbor is the ideal location for an Acadia Park vacation and so is Harbor Watch!!!

Spacious , excellent location, great view of harbor

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our families. Grandparents, children and grandchildren . The house had ample space. What a treat to not only have 5 BR but 6.5 BA! The living and dining areas perfect for gathering and shared meals. Loved being on the Quiet Side of Mt. Desert Island in Southwest Harbor. We could walk to the charming town. Also views of the Harbor from the outside deck and dining porch area were wonderful and allowed us to watch the tide ebb and flow . Owners very helpful and easy to work with. A definite rental to recommend especially for a large group. Thank you

Nice Southwest Harbor Loctaion

  • 5 of 5

Harbor Watch is so close to the center of town (Quietside) that you can walk out for dinner at several great locations. And, desert is close by too!....It was a great place for our annual family gathering. Comfortable accommodations for 5 couples, but can fit more if needed. It is truly a turnkey, trouble free house, and a great base location for whatever your MDI adventures may be. Bob And Karen were easy to make arrangements and extremely flexible with my travelers needs (Thank You !!)

Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Harbor Watch was the perfect home for our family vacation. With 5 bedrooms and 6 1/2 baths, we had plenty of space for our family of fifteen. We loved the large dining area, nicely equipped kitchen, and the deck. Harbor Watch was clean and well maintained. Bob and Karen were quick to make sure we were comfortable and help with suggestions on local restaurants, shopping, hiking, and excursions. Looking forward to our next visit to Southwest Harbor and Harbor Watch.

3 Generations

  • 5 of 5

This house nicely accommodated three generations. It was well located and appointed. We were in the center of town allowing us to walk or bike nearly everywhere. We asked the owners for a special accommodation with little advance notice and the owners made it happen. They are great hosts. Try the wild blueberries.
