Recent Southwest Harbor reviews

  • The Keyhole is great for a family vacation!!

    "We recently stayed at the Keyhole with 4 adults and 2 little boys, it was perfectly rustic Maine! The cabin was well stocked and the new grill was perfect. Our boys loved walking the boardwalk to the private beach and spent many many hours there. The beach was beautiful and quiet with great views and sounds of lobster boats. It was an excellent location to all the attractions of the island. We will definitely be retuning to the Keyhole!!"

  • Four Winds

    "The cottage, Four Winds, is on the point of a peninsula just north of Southwest Harbor. It is a beautiful spot with its own beach and private dock. The house is roomy, clean, well stocked and very comfortable. The three front upstairs bedrooms open out to a large deck with lounge chairs and a hammock. Our family has enjoyed a vacation here for the last two years. We just loved taking the youngest kids on sea glass hunts on the rocky beach and watching the older kids of all ages swimming and fishing for crabs off the dock. We all enjoyed our meals on the patio while drinking in the peaceful views of the ocean with boats sailing by. Four Winds is a little piece of heaven tucked away on Mt. Dessert Island!"

  • 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."

  • Captain's Quarters

    "This is a clean and lovely cottage with windows that take advantage of the lovely water view. The living space is large and extends out to a good size deck complete with rockers and a picnic table. Oversized windows in the living room and master bedroom, along with three skylights and a windowed cupola, keep the entire space bright and fresh. The kitchen is small but functional and well equipped. Though we did no grilling, charcoal was stocked for our use. We appreciated the convenience of a dishwasher, washer and dryer. We were charmed to be greeted with a loaf of locally baked bread and jar of amazing blueberry preserves. After a quick phone call for an address we (and our guests) went to the nearby stand and bought out the preserves. Oh yeah, we treated ourselves to the stand's fresh baked cookies too! We chose Bass Harbor in order to stay away from the hustle, bustle and traffic of the Bar Harbor side of the island and it worked out perfectly. We easily accessed a lot of hiking trails and entered the carriage trails (to bike) from western parking lots. The ferry to Swan's Island is a short bike ride away and we spent an enjoyable day there. Nearby restaurants and those in Southwest Harbor were quite good. If this sounds like a vacation you'd enjoy, by all means consider Captain's Quarters as your home away from home."
