  • Beautiful cottage in great location

    "We have been visiting SWH for 15 years and this cottage is our favorite yet. Wonderful views of the harbor, well stocked kitchen and great location for walking to town restaurants and shops. Southwest Harbor is the perfect location for people who want to explore all that Mt. Desert and Acadia have to offer. It is much less crowded on the "quiet side" of Mt Desert and provides close access to Acadia's hiking trails, carriage roads and the island's good restaurants. We will be back!"

  • Wonderful time

    "What a great property. Furnished with just about everything you could possibly need for your stay, comfortable, pretty location on the creek, and ideal for exploring this beautiful part of the country. I would definitely recommend it to couples or families. When you finally have enough of the lobster rolls then Vazquez Mexican take-out in nearby Milbridge is a great choice, or if you want to splurge then try Salt Box in Hancock. We really could not have enjoyed our stay more."

  • Spacious property located in the heart of Bar Harbor.

    "Summerside Cottage is a nice two-story, 4-bedroom home with great access to the town of Bar Harbor. My family of 7 adults and one baby were very comfortable here and really enjoyed our stay and all that Bar Harbor has to offer. Property is well-maintained, instructions are clear, customer service was fantastic, in advance of our trip, and I would highly recommend this property to other families. My only suggestion would be some floor fans in each bedroom to help circulate the air at night. Hands down, this was a fantastic place to stay for our entire family!"

  • Exactly What We Wanted- Cozy, Clean, Scenic, and Quiet

    "I am several weeks late in posting a review. However, I feel compelled to post because the reviews here helped us make a very good selection. Also, I want to thank the owners of this very nice cottage and the caretaker who was so helpful for the perfect week we spent here. The house was exactly what one hopes for - very clean, cozy, comfortably appointed, nice and quiet. We truly relaxed here and recharged ourselves. Like others have mentioned in their reviews, the views looking out over the bay were big and beautiful, and the patio is very nice for spending a morning or afternoon. Being that it was a cool weather time of year, we enjoyed fires in the living room's open stove fireplace at night and making two big pots of hearty seafood stew with large quantities of fresh seafood we purchased in town. There's plenty to do in the area if you want to stay busy - Acadia, lighthouses, Schoodic, Bar Harbor and so on. We did visit Schoodic and Quoddy Head- both great. For us, however, the best parts were reading by the fire, enjoying the peaceful tranquility of the setting, watching the wildlife, and going for refreshing walks - all of which we did and thoroughly enjoyed. It was late in the season and we didn't bring our kayak because of weather concerns. However, we'll return, and definitely bring our kayak because the area is PERFECT for kayaking. This was our first time to Milbridge. It's a good little town with all the basics - grocery, bank, post office. The location of the cottage was 3 or so miles out from town on a peninsula with bays on either side. It is a convenient location to town yet far enough out to feel very private. I think some of the other nearby areas we considered- Corea, Steuben, Harrington- would have been a bit too far out since they have to go to Milbridge for groceries and such. That's why we were pleased with Milbridge for our choice. The cottage itself was cozy and comfortable. Cozy is the word that just keeps coming to mind whenever I think about our time there- relaxing on the couch late at night, fire going, wife's fuzzy slippers, soup on the stove, glass of wine in hand, good book or movie to look at. We also thought it was a good price for a nice place - especially after driving around and checking out a couple of others we had considered in our search. So, I'd say this is a good choice if you want a nice, comfortable place with all the basics covered because you can be active or just relax in great scenic surroundings."
