Guestbook comments from the manager

"We are glad we decided to stay in Southwest Harbor. The place is within walking distance of the main street and had easy access to food, galleries and the town library. I would recommend Southwest Harbor to anyone who wants a layback place to stay. The layout of the cottage made great use of the place. The property was clean and just like the photos (actually the owner was in the process of making some upgrades in terms of decorations and landscaping). We would stay here again."

Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at this property. The shower was exceptional. Everything we needed was there. A gas station was fairly close and offered fresh bakery items for breakfast. This was the quiet part of the park which we appreciated. It was a fairly easy walk to downtown. Would rent here again.

Great location, close to downtown

  • 4 of 5

Second year in a row that we have stayed here. It is perfect for walking to downtown Southwest harbor and is close to many trails in Acadia. It is comfortable for two, with just about everything you could need. Nice to have a washer and dryer in the unit and wifi. There is not much of a view and the business out front blocks the drive a little but not really a problem. A female deer and her fawn came by every evening.
