Southwest Harbor retreat
This property was very clean and comfortable, the downstairs bedroom
And bathroom were great. The upstairs was comfortable, but the stairs are high and steep, not for those with knee issues or young children. They provided some toys which was nice. Overall
This house was everything you could ask
September stay at Hidden Elm
This was a happy experience! The booking went smoothly and the property was everything we had hoped for and more. Lots of space to spread out, clean, quiet, lots of natural light, easy walk for coffee, sandwiches, harbor view. The only reason for 4 out of 5 stars on cleanliness was because the cleaning crew missed a couple of minor things. The overall condition of this rental was spotless. We would definitely book again!
Best House Best Location
We loved our stay in SW Harbour. The house was perfect. We were in walking distance to all stores in the village. The owners made sure to tell us that if we needed anything that they were there to help. The IGA was five minutes away by car. Great internet. We would stay here again. Totally enjoyable
Perfect Maine retreat
We had an exceptional stay at this home in SWH. It was even nicer in person despite the great photos. We struggle we finding homes in this area that feel like a get away vs staying in someone else's home. This house has character and charm but has been skillfully added on to and tastefully updated. The kitchen is amazing. Although we enjoyed many of the area restaurants (many within a short walk) we love to cook as well. The kitchen is well appointed with high end cookware, knives and appliances. Nice plates, glassware, etc--things we in the past have found lacking at other rentals. It's a large kitchen and it was perfect for an at home lobster fest we hosted with friends and family one evening. All the beds were very comfortable with new, high end linens. The master shower is amazing, great water pressure after a day of hiking! The location is wonderful; in town but the home is tucked away from the Main Street by the hidden driveway. Our older kids enjoyed walking to the ice cream shop, cafes and shops and we had no worries (ages 12/15). There are two decks, both quiet and private. We enjoyed coffee on the front porch in the Adirondack chairs almost every morning. There is a great supply of puzzles and games as well. It was early June when we stayed, so still cool in the area, and we needed to use the heat 1-2 nights. The layout of the home was ideal for us, with a private master wing that also included a sitting area, all separate from the living room and upstairs. Generous 'his & her' closets for settling in quickly. It was great having a full size washer and dryer as well. We can't wait to return. After 10+ years of vacationing seasonally, this is hands down our favorite home and location. You have easy access to all things on the quiet side (Thurston's Lobster, Wonderland, Ship's Harbor) and are 15 minutes from Bar Harbor and the major park points. The bike rental shop in SWH (highly recommend) is ideal, you can walk to get your bikes. We did this for a few days and pedaled around town. The community is very pedestrian friendly. Our hosts were available by text/phone if needed and were very responsive to a few simple questions I had. Thank you to our hosts for an amazing week at your home! Don't wait on this one; it's a rare and wonderful find!
Lovely Home Away from Home
This beautiful, well appointed home was the perfect spot to celebrate my mother's 70th birthday. While its' location right in town made walking to dinner easy, it is set back from the road for privacy.
The kitchen is well stocked; we especially appreciated the ground coffee left for us. Numerous areas to sit and read or chat add to the homey feeling.
Do keep in mind that the first floor bedroom has an en suite, while the three second floor bedrooms share a bathroom on the first floor.
We would return here in a heartbeat!
