Perfect spot on MDI's Quieter Side!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Pilot House. Location is perfect- a short walk up to the SW Harbor center, where there are some great restaurants and the fabulous Sawyer's Market where you can get nice meats, fish and a great selection of basic gourmet food items. The condo is equipped with everything we needed- we cooked in a few nights and ate at Coda and Beal's Lobster Pier. We also stopped at Common Ground Cafe a few mornings, and enjoyed their popovers and felt good about contributing to a restaurant that serves free meals to locals in the off-season months.
Free Acadia shuttle stops right in SW Harbor so no need to drive into Acadia or Bar Harbor. Don was very easy to book with and quickly took care of an issue we had with the Wifi. The only complaint we had was that we could hear the guests in the unit above us - the first group included 3 active toddlers, and the 2nd group included adults that were not light-footed and stayed up late... we adjusted, and it would not stop us from booking here again, but wanted to be totally honest.
This property was average for us. The check in process and Don were great. The living area and kitchen were nice. The view from the balcony to the harbor was scenic.
The bedrooms are in the front of the house with traffic going by at night and early morning making it hard to sleep at times. The headboard of one of the rooms is against the window. The beds were not comfortable for us. One of the beds has a very noisy boxspring and the other bed has a noisy frame. We did not sleep well during our stay. The bathrooms smelled like urine and need cleaned.
The property is walking distance to a nice market, bakery, restaurants, and coffee shop.
Other than the comments above, we had a great time in Acadia and will come back for more visits. We cycled the carriage trails and took a kayak tour with Maine State Kayak that was awesome.
Excellent place to stay
The condo was clean and in a great, walkable location. Don was highly responsive and helpful! We really enjoyed our time here in Southwest Harbor.
Very good with easy access to all places
The house was very good and clean. It was in good location and near to all major activities. We liked a lot.
Cute Coastal Condo
We loved this condo! Cute, cozy, and comfortable, it was perfect for our needs. We didn't spend too much time in it since we were exploring the island so much, but such a great spot away from the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor while being close enough to visit for little day trips.
Nice 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom
Everything is as pictured. The owner is very responsive to any needs or issues. He was quick to take care of the one issue we had.
Just to note that the unit's bedrooms are on a busy street with a decent amount of traffic.
Since we were there in summer, we just used the window unit A/C to block out the noise. Worked great.
The unit was clean and just as advertised.
