Recent Southwest Harbor reviews

  • Simply Spectacular

    "The title says it all, a "charming, 2BR oceanfront cottage with stunning views". 2016 was our first experience with Apple Cottage, and it was simply spectacular. The cottage exceeded all expectations - well appointed, super clean, comfortable, quiet, and the view is probably the best on the East Coast - you can simply sit all day and enjoy the gentle breezes and every changing ocean landscape. A venue and experience that will call you back!"

  • Perfect base camp in Bass Harbor

    "Our second stay at the Ebb Tide with our pooch was as perfect as the first. Such a perfect location on the water in Bass Harbor. The house is wonderful with awesome views of the sunset from the house, patio with a fire ring, or chairs down at the water. It was so nice to have a quiet place to come back too and unwind after a day of exploring the wonderful hiking trails that Acadia National Park offers. Shelly maintains beautiful gardens around the house and has several bird feeders that attract lots of birds. The house is equipped with everything you need to make your stay enjoyable and if you do need something Shelly and Larry are eager to assist. We used the gas grill for half our meals, and enjoyed several local establishments in Southwest Harbor the other nights. Highly recommend "Eat a Pita" and the attached "Island Bar" for an awesome meal. Thurston's Lobster Pound is a 10 minute drive or use the canoe that comes with the house and paddle across the harbor and tie up at their dock to earn those steamers and beer! Many evenings we took a drive along the Seawall with walks at Wonderland Trail, Ship Harbor Nature Trail, and the Bass Harbor Lighthouse. We saw lots of deer each night we did this. The shower includes a floor to ceiling window that looks out onto the harbor - how many times do you get to enjoy a wonderful sunset while showering! There is a sun room off the master bedroom with a day bed that our pooch enjoyed - he could watch all the critters and keep us safe :) The house is very bright with lots of windows, but also in a very private setting. The hiking on Acadia is very similar to the terrain in the White Mountains of NH, just shorter peaks but with views of the ocean. Even though there were 2 or 3 cruise ships in Bar Harbor most days, we met very few people on the trails and had many summits to ourselves. Very enjoyable hiking! For dog lovers - dogs are welcome on most trails, but there is also an off leash dog park over by Seal Harbor where dogs and horses are welcome, but no bikes. It has a 5 mile loop along with other trails and a pond for the pooches to go swimming. Very worth checking it out. We highly recommend a stay at Ebb Tide - already planning a return trip next year."

  • Nice condo, right on the harbor

    "The description of the property was accurate. Property was well maintained and clean. The owners were very nice. We had an issue with the water heater and it was resolved the next day (even though it was a holiday!) Thank you John! I would definitely recommend this condo for someone looking to stay on Mt. Desert Island. It is on the quite side, which we didn't mind the 30 minute drive into Bar Harbor. We really enjoyed downtown Bar Harbor and of course, Acadia National Park. In town of SWH, grab a pizza and ice cream at Quiteside Cafe. You will not be disappointed! We had a rainy day and took the time to go to Schoodic Point. It is off the island but definitely worth the trip! Best part, nobody was there! Had a great time on Mt. Desert Island and would stay in the same place again!"

  • 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!"
