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!!"

  • 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."

  • As comfortable as home

    "Sow's Ear was an absolute delight for our family of 3. It only took one day of close attention to get our 5yo daughter to look and not touch all of the interesting decorations spread around the house. The kids room is adjacent to the stairs so wouldn't recommend for under 3's without bringing a portable gate, but otherwise great. The house is very new and super comfortable. With the windows closed it is super quiet. When open, you get a fantastic airflow. The natural light throughout is also great. Although on a neighborhood side street, it is easy walk into NE Harbor (5 min or less, faster on bike), which also has a new co-working space if you need that sort of thing during your stay. The location is very convenient to everything on the island with easy bus access if you don't want to drive. The kitchen is fully setup for whatever you need and the furniture is newer and comfortable. the gardens are truly remarkable and very relaxing. Having access to the garage for storing bikes was great, so I didn't have to keep them tethered to the car the entire week. Also, don't miss a visit to the Naturalist's Notebook store in NEH. Also learned that the street you come into ties into scenic Sargent's Drive so it makes the drive home and in the morning all that much more appealing when going to other parts of the island."

  • 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."
