About Alicia Edwardson
My husband Todd and I been vacationing to Acadia National Park and Mt Desert Island for 25 years. We've enjoyed area, people and LOBSTER every time we came. Always cool in the summer, always relaxing.
Alicia Edwardson purchased this House in 2005
Why Alicia Edwardson chose Southwest Harbor
We finally realized we loved it so much, we should buy a place we could call our own. We just decided this year we'd like to share it while we explore our new city apartment in Boston.
What makes this House unique
Being on a circle just out of town is really nice. There's only ten or so houses on the circle, so there's only a car or two da that drive by. Yet, we are a quick mile to the town center. And Southwest Harbor is the second biggest town on the island after Bar Harbor. So close, yet slightly remote: the best of both worlds.

Very nice private stay at Bliss.
We enjoyed our stay at Bliss in October. The property was very private and very close to SW Harbor. A storm cut our stay short by a couple days as the cottage lost power and we had to leave to stay in a hotel the last 2 nights. With no power and with well water, no power = no water. The cottage was clean and was just as described. The internet worked well and there was plenty of room and lots of assets for cooking if we had wanted to. The property is out of town and very dark at night. No street lighting and no lighting outside other than the porch lights. A dusk to dawn light would have been helpful so that we would not have to leave the car running until we got everything in the cottage when we returned each night. The property would be very nice for a small family or 2 couples. Summer rentals would allow for outdoor sitting on the deck. I would recommend the property for rental. The price was reasonable.
Nice secluded getaway
Nice quiet woodsy location. All the comforts of home.
Wonderfully quiet and peaceful
The cabin was quaint, comfortable, and we especially enjoyed the wooded, mostly-private deck. We loved the location on Mt Desert Island, a scenic drive from the hustle-bustle crowds of Bar Harbor and oh, so convenient for exploring all parts of Acadia National Park! We had a wonderful time and would recommend this place to all our friends.
The house was just enough for our needs. It’s a cute little cabin tucked away....felt very private. It was just enough amenities for our family...comfortable beds, washer and dryer, games, TV and pots to cook lobsters. Lots of family time here. Conveniently there was a lady minutes from the house selling lobster for $6/lb...that was great!! Our family has been visiting MDI for the last 4 yrs now, and it was our first time staying in Southwest Harbor. The only negative we had was that we had to drive further than normal to get to the areas we wanted to hike and visit, which was not a big deal. As a “get away”, it was perfect. Ashley, the cleaner, left her number if we needed anything and was available immediately when I texted her. Thank you for a great stay!
The area was amazing. It was quiet with just one mile to the town center were there were amazing places to eat. The bed was comfortable for my husband and I. Our two dogs loved hiking on the trails and playing in the ocean. Would definitely stay again!
Thank you for your lovely review! We try to make our guests comfortable, and anticipate needs. We know how important it is to have a clean, comfortable, dog-friendly place so we don’t have to miss the fur-babies!
Blissful for sure. The location was right around corner to Bar Harbor and all it's beauty.
The cabin is cozy, with all the comforts of home. So close to Bar Harbor and all of it's beauty. Maine has really drawn us in. It will be hard to leave. Don't hesitate to include Bliss in your plans. You won't be sorry. My dog felt right at home too. Thank your for sharing it with us.
We are glad you enjoyed your time at Bliss!
