My wife and I stayed here with 9 adults and our new baby, including my in-laws and my own parents. Needless to say, we needed space for everyone's peace and privacy. This home was perfect. The wrap-around porch was a great place to relax and watch the yachts and lobster boats head out of Southwest Harbor. The porch also gave us great views of the sunrise over Acadia's mountains (as do three of the six bedrooms). The large picture windows in the living room offered the same views and the window seats were great spots for reading or napping. Almost all of us gathered around the living room fire each night. The kitchen was amazingly well stocked and very clean. We cooked dinner at the house every night with everyone fitting comfortably around the large dining room table.
The house is about 2 miles from the town of Southwest Harbor. We really loved this town. It has a nice gourmet market, a wine & cheese shop, a few clothing boutiques, a very affordable nine hole golf course right on the water, and a fantastic library--although the house has a formidable library in its own right--so you might never feel compelled to venture to the town library.
The owner and the caretakers were very responsive and helpful. We would definitely stay at the house again.
