Southwest Harbor Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom Cottage • 2.5 Bath • Sleeps 6-8

'Cottage at the Head of the Harbor' is located on a slight terraced hill with wild flowers, rock gardens and beautiful vistas of the harbor and ocean. It is within an easy walk to charming shops, grocers and restaurants in the center of town. Breathtaking harbor views are available from the living room, first floor master bedroom, and a second floor bedroom. This house is lovingly decorated with many bright and subtle Maine touches. Each bedroom sleeps 2. A queen-sized sleeper in living room sleeps 2 more.

First floor: Large open living room with eastern views of the harbor and ocean and western views of the Western Mountains. A fully stocked kitchen with new appliances including a dishwasher and microwave oven. The two decks outside the living room and master bedroom face east and allow for leisurely days of reading and gazing. There is an outdoor gas grill. Huge master bedroom with king bed includes full bath with Jacuzzi tub. A second full bath on first floor includes shower/tub and washer and dryer. TV with DVD player and cable stations in living room. Second floor: Front bedroom with double bed has beautiful ocean and mountain views. Second small bedroom has 2 twin beds. There is a cute half bath with venting roof window. A lovely place to relax the mind and the soul. Once you're here, you won't want to leave.

Nearby, and within walking distance, are charming shops and restaurants, a local bakery, town library, dinner theatre, and lobster piers. Within a quick drive are mountain and ocean-side hiking, and the island's only lighthouse. Bar Harbor is 20 minutes away with shops, nightlife, great restaurants and daily whale watching excursions. The Acadia National Park loop road and carriage roads are 15 minutes away. The park has over 70 miles of carriage roads and bridges constructed by John D. Rockefeller, all designated only for hiking and biking. The island's only organic farm is 10 minutes away, near Somesville, with fresh fruits and vegetables available throughout the summer. Sailing lessons and kayak rentals are available in town. Sailing excursions are available in Northeast Harbor and Bar Harbor. The island's finest sunsets are 5 minutes away in Bass Harbor, with 2 pier-front restaurants.

Cottage at the harbor (Southwest Harbor)

  • 5 of 5
I can't understand the previous review. We have stayed here for 4 years in a row and loved it. Not only has it always been clean, but it's well equipped, and everything works. The owner is the most responsive and helpful one we've found in the area. The house is nicely furnished and in a great location. We hope to go back in future years.

Owner's Response: We have many return visitors who love our home and location year affter year. Each year we make enhancements to the home to improve our guests' experience. We always offer suggestions and recommendation for what to do on the island if a guest requests. There aren't many island views and locations at our price point.

Cottage in Southwest Harbor

  • 1 of 5
We stayed in this cottage Sept 11-17, 2010. The bathrooms and kitchen were quite dirty: lots of cobwebs and dirty bathrug in master bath, mould all around the bathtub and walls in other bathroom, plus faucets very difficult to operate. Mould in coffeepot on the kitchen counter and on fruit in refrigerator, pots and pans that had to be scrubbed before use.
Foul odor in an upstairs bedroom forced us to keep window open at all times.
Dirty bedspreads and blankets, and sheets which did not fit the master bed.
A lot of dust everywhere.
The overall situation (mostly mould and dust) forced us to leave one day early.
We wrote the owner od October 1 about the problems we encountered,but we have not heard from him.
We do not wish to publish a review, we just would like to know that the problems are being addressed.
