Recent Southwest Harbor reviews

  • Very satisfied

    "I am almost reluctant to submit this review, in that doing so would risk getting the word out about how nice this place is. We thoroughly enjoyed our week here. The house is ideally located in SW Harbor, on the quiet side of MDI and the associated crowds in Bar Harbor, Cadillac Mtn, etc. the house itself is quiet, private, clean, comfortable, and well-appointed. However, it is not luxurious in the traditional sense (the luxuries here are the quiet, views, rocking chairs on the deck, breeze off the water, and so on). The beds are comfortable which is key. There is fast internet and a nice TV, although we never turned the TV on given all the outdoor activities. The dock is a great bonus and we used it extensively for kayaking in the harbor. Very thankful to have found this place."

  • Wonderful cottage!

    "We absolutely loved our stay! Barn is a bit rustic. There were 6 in our group and stayed very comfortably in the cottage."

  • Great stay on MDI

    "We recently stayed at this wonderful home. The previous reviews did a nice job of capturing the benefits/features of this home so I will hit just a few highlights. Found Southwest Harbor to be very quaint and nice break from Bar Harbor. Good jumping off point to all points on the island. There are a handful of restaurants in town (we enjoyed Eat-a-Pita ... it is much more than pitas). There is a nice wine shop with a wide selection of wine and cheeses. Fire pit in back. Nice way to relax after a full day ... plenty of firewood on hand. Family room very comfy with leather couch and chairs, fireplace, large TV. There is a grocery store in town but if you plan on doing a lot of cooking we recommend that you try Hannaford's in Bar Harbor. Suzanne was great. Easily accessible by phone or email. We would definitely stay here again should we return to the area."

  • Ideal getaway!!!

    "My husband and I have been going to Mt. Desert Island for over 45 years to enjoy the spectacular ocean walks and views, mountains, and lakes that the island offers. As much as we loved our twice (or thrice) annual trips to Acadia, the noisy motels/hotels and long restaurant lines were becoming tiresome and diminished our level of enjoyment. We'd often rented cottages elsewhere but had never found a cottage in the Bar Harbor area that we liked until we stumbled upon Paul's Cottage. What we ideally had wanted was a cottage on the ocean with a fireplace that offered both privacy and easy access to Acadia Park. After spending a fall and spring week in Paul's Cottage this past year, we have found it a perfect fit for us, offering many amenities including the following. - situated right on the shore with stunning westerly island and sunset views - welcoming, friendly, and accommodating owners (available but not intrusive) - a large updated kitchen not wanting for anything - fresh lobster and other seafood, produce, groceries, etc. available within a short drive - very good restaurants (especially in season) if desired - Acadia Park sites within easy driving distance - various books and games to enjoy by the huge fireplace (endless supply of firewood available) or on the spacious deck overlooking the water - the Southwest Harbor Library issues guest passes for non-residents for supplemental reading choices We are very much looking forward to our two-week stay this fall and are considering a winter visit at some point."
