Regarding Pets and Smoking: After much consideration, we have decided not to allow pets in our property. Most pets are well behaved, we know, and certainly, many people love to travel with their pets. However, in our experience both personally, and in business, the incidence of allergic reaction to dander is prevalent. So in consideration for those with allergies we have established a permanent policy of NO Pets Allowed. Please understand our position, and know we do personally love pets.
Our property is NO SMOKING, INSIDE OR OUT.
Rules of the house:: Our property is NON SMOKING: INSIDE OR OUT.
Good quality linens and towels are provided.
Please leave all used linens in a bag by the door for the housekeeper upon your departure, and make sure the cottage is left in the same condition in which you found it. Deposit will be returned as soon as we are advised by the housekeepers that the cottage is in good order.
If something is inadvertently broken, please advise us right away. In 2013 our housekeeping charge of $60 will be deducted from the security deposit after departure in place of the original add-on with the reservation.
Refund of security deposit will be $140if there is no damage or extra cleaning required.
Occupancy:: The property is best suited for two adults.
No one under the age of 21 is allowed to rent without a parent on premises. Although we want everyone to enjoy themselves, this is a small neighborhood where everyone sleeps with the windows open, so partying and/or playing of loud music or TV after a reasonable hour is not appreciated. Our neighbors are kind and friendly people whose quiet enjoyment of their property we respect.
We hope you have a great vacation with us, and will want to return.

Why Barbara Fleming chose Southwest Harbor
The ARTIST's Cottage, a weekly rental, is located on the 'quiet side' of our island, yet near many of ANP's most popular beaches and trails. We love the ambiance of near seaside living with lobster pounds
close by, as well as the charming village life, craft and
artists' venues, Sights and sounds of the sea give us pleasure in living here.
What makes this cottage unique
Walk to town, take the free island bus (during the season), Convenient and private. The Cozy cottage is within walking distance of the water, Marina and beach overlook. Boats and sea sounds abound, and
ferry terminals to the outer islands are nearby.,
