Recent Southwest Harbor reviews

  • 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!"

  • Perfect getaway!

    "We loved our stay at head of the harbor. It was the perfect spot to get away. We loved being able to walk to town and the view of the harbor was perfect. We went to Acadia and Bar Harbor several times...less than 30 minutes and the drive is beautiful! Would highly recommend it to anyone, house is comfortable with tons of amenities and thoughtful touches, especially for families!"

  • 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."

  • Fantastic Cottage Location

    "My husband and I had the privilege of spending a week at this amazing cottage. If you are looking for a quiet, beautiful place to vacation, look no further. "Stone Beach" is perfect for two people. Grant and Becky could not have been nicer hosts. They were very informative about where to eat and what to do while visiting Mount Desert Island. Our favorite restaurant was Thurston's in Bernard. The granite bathroom is exceptionally nice. The king bed was very comfortable. We really enjoyed watching the deer in the yard every morning while eating breakfast and walking the seawall. We highly recommend staying here!"
