Perfect Place for a Quiet Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
The Harbor Cottage is on the "quietside" of Mount Desert Island, but is only 20 minutes from Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. The owner Roger is an excellent host and made the entire process easy, from rental agreement to check out. He's happy to help with recommendations for local restaurants and things to see on the island. The main house is perfectly sized for two, with a cozy living room and kitchen. The master bedroom is large and comfortable with a deck overlooking the harbor. The downstairs bathroom, with jetted tub, is very comfortable and spacious. There is plenty of light throughout the house due to the sky lights and large windows. The property was clean and immaculately maintained, we felt at home right away! The house is only 5 minutes away from the Bass Harbor lighthouse, which has spectacular views and walking trails. We would definitely recommend this house to friends and family and hope to visit again one day. If you are looking for a quiet getaway on the edge of the water this is the house for you!

Awesome trip thanks to this cottage

  • 5 of 5
Recently, my wife and I honeymooned at this cottage. The owner was very friendly and helpful, speeding us through reservation process. He also was very accommodating and informative - he has compiled lots of information about the island for renters to utilize, which was very helpful for us as first time visitors! The cottage was just tad smaller than we had anticipated, and was everything we needed for our trip. The kitchen is well-furnished, and including helpful things like a lobster pot and other seafood specific utensils that made cooking up lobster (which we bought from a place about 1 minute away by foot) much easier.

Again, this was our honeymoon, and it was excellent, but that would not have been the case if this place hadn't been so great. We look forward to coming back to the island in the future, and potentially staying here again.

Very relaxing and peaceful

  • 5 of 5
The pictures and description of this cabin don't do it justice. It is a very relaxing and amazing place to stay. Roger (the owner) only added to how wonderful it was for my wife and I. He was very quick to respond to any questions we had in advance and checked in to make sure we arrived ok. The location is amazing and the views are as well. It's in a quiet area with easy access to anything you could want to see on Mt. Desert Island. We were there before the tourist season began. There were plenty of places open and all of the natural attractions were still accessible to us. I would highly recommend this cabin to anybody looking to unwind and destress. My wife and I will be staying here again and again in the future.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5
As the previous reviews said, its even better in person!
It is the perfect couples getaway.
Spacious yet private... updated and cozy.
The harbor view is right out of a Hollywood movie.
The endless sun light waking you through the skylights in the morning to stunning sunsets golding over our dinners.
We enjoyed an entire week of winter peace, watching the fishermen on their boats, hiking snow covered trails, discovering breath taking vistas, hunting down fresh lobster at the pounds, and simply breathing in lots of fresh air.
Roger, the owner could not be more attentive and kind.
This whole experience was a delight and will be our winter hideaway for years to come...

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My partner and I rented the Harbor cottage this past summer. Having stayed at various places on Mount Desert Island, this was by far our favorite. The views were amazing. The house was bright, open, and clean, and you can tell Roger takes great pride in the place. Other reviews have been spot on in terms of the views and comforts of the home. The space is well designed and the home is fully-equipped to meet all of our needs. For us, the location is ideal...on the quieter side of the island, away from many of the crowds, but close enough to the great restaurants and small town feel of Southwest Harbor and, of course, Acadia. I would by far say that Roger is the most helpful and enthusiastic owner we have dealt with on both Homeaway and VRBO rentals. We would highly recommend this place!

Great property with spectacular views

  • 5 of 5
We just finished a stay in the house last week. As other reviewers have said, the pictures are very accurate, though I believe they don't do justice to the views available from nearly every window and porch. There are fantastic and commanding views of the harbor and the mountains of western MDI. It's also fun to watch the ferry coming in and out. Sunsets are fantastic, and I can imagine in the summer when it's warm enough, sitting outside on the front balcony would be great for watching them (but they are great from the dining area downstairs as well).

The place really is a great size for two people, feeling both cozy and yet spacious enough that you're not on top of each other all the time. We didn't use the side studio, though that seemed like it would be fairly comfortable for additional people. The house is very clean, well-appointed and attractively decorated, and the kitchen is excellent. Appliances are new and in great working order. The owner is very responsive and helpful, and it's clear that he takes pride in this house.

I happen to really like this side of the island, and Bass Harbor is a great spot to be. There are two beautiful coastal trails within a few minutes' drive, Wonderland and Ship Harbor, which are great for morning or evening walks. There are a couple of very good (but not fancy) restaurants in Bass Harbor, within a minute walking distance of the house, and Southwest Harbor with more and varied options is only about ten minutes away by car. Overall, if you love MDI but are looking to get away from the b.s. in the Bar Harbor area (yet still be close enough to the main parts of the park to go in if you want to), this is a fantastic spot.
