Guestbook comments from the owner
...we thouroughly enjoyed staying at your Harbor Watch home! We have told all of our sailor friends who annually sail in Down East Race Week out of Northeast Harbor about your home, so you may be getting some more requests!



Thank you for all your tips and advice! We went down memory Lane and rented bikes, rode in the Park to the Jordon Pond House for tea and popovers, sailed for an afternoon on the Friendshiip Sloop, private tour of the Abby Aldridge Gardens, drinks at the Claremont Hotel, bought live lobsters nearby at Beals and cooked them at home [Harbor Watch]. And we topped it off with a 75th birthday dinner at Red Sky... It was all GREAT! Thank you so much and hope to do it again some year soon.

HARBOR WATCH

  • 4 of 5
Very clean, great location. Lots of amenities. We had eleven people, it would have been uncomfortable having more than 13 or 14 total. Would benefit better outside storage for bikes etc. An additional fridge would be very helpful and almost essential when having such large groups. An AC unit (in addition to an already present heater) would be helpful in the porch since that is the only place for more than 4 people to eat. Would definitely come back.

GREAT WEEK IN HARBOR WATCH

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned home to Virginia after a week in Harbor Watch with a total of 12 family members ranging from 2 years old to 84! We had a wonderful time and all slept comfortably. The location of the house on the "quiet side" of the island worked out perfectly for us. Everyone could easily walk to town and we managed to make many trips to the bakery where the two year old picked out favorite cookies. We were able to easily have big family dinners on the closed-in back porch and we could watch the boats and the water changing with the tides while we ate. The hiking and views from Acadia were spectacular and a group of 6 went sea kayacking and loved it even though the weather was a bit cool. We, of course, ate a Jordan Pond to experience the pop overs and we were not disappointed. The two year old and five oldest went on a carriage ride which we would certainly recommend. Another day was spent at Asticou gardens in Northeast Harbor. Very beautiful and easy to walk for the older people and two year old in our group. We had one full day of rain and some of us went to Woodlawn House in Ellsworth which was very interesting, and others went to the College of the Atlantic Dorr Museum where there is a touch pool and many bones and pelts for children to touch. Definitely worth a stop. We found the house very comfortable - the kitchen was very well equipped and the beds and multiple bathrooms worked out great. The IGA grocery store right before town had most of the food supplies we needed. This was our first time up in Maine ane we are so appreciative of having been able to rent Harbor Watch.

HARBOR WATCH

We loved Harbor Watch. The many rooms with their own bathrooms was great. We did think the house was directly on the water, so that was a surprise. Also, we needed more towels. But we loved the wi-fi, large table for meals, location, coziness. The house was clean and well-maintained. We were grateful for the washer and dryer and used them regularly! We ate at every little restaurant in town and loved the little shops. We even took at art class with Jenny. We loved Lulu's Lobster tour, the local kayak company and Allison our guide. Two of us even did the biplane! We LOVED riding our bikes on the carriage roads and ending at the Jordan Pond House for a late lunch.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Harbor Watch. Our goal is to make sure that you have the best vacation ever. Please note that all information on the web site and that we send to guests indicates that Harbor Watch has a wonderful harbor view, not that it is water front. We are sorry that some how your communication with others in your party became confused. Also, guests are provided with whatever towels and linens are needed for use at the home. The staff is notified of the number of incoming guests which determines what towels they put out. If, however, guests have special needs, our phone and the caretaker's phone (available 24/7) are provided so that we can promptly direct guests to additional linens in house. We wish to be immediately responsive to your needs.

Owner's Response: We are glad Harbor Watch met the needs of your diverse group. We strive to provide five star service and accommodations. Contact information is provided for ourselves and the caretaker (available 24/7). If there is anything that is within our control that prevents a five star rating, we wish to be made aware so that we can take immediate action. You only have a week or two to spend on beautiful Mt. Desert Island and we want to do everything we can to make it your best vacation ever!

HARBOR WATCH

  • 5 of 5
Mount Desert Island is a great vacation spot and Harbor Watch in Southwest Harbor is an excellent place to stay. The house is roomy, comfortable and well-maintrained. There is a terrific view of the working harbor from the back deck and the town is small, but with a number of good restaurants and many nearby attractions. It is away from the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor which is about 30 minutes away on the other side of the island. There are numerous hiking trails on the island, many quite close to SW Harbor. There are scenic view everywhere with lakes, mountains and the rock-bound coast yielding great vistas. We loved the area and the house!

GREAT FAMILY PLACE

  • 5 of 5
Harbor Watch is roomy, well equipped, clean and very family friendly. We loved sitting on the deck looking toward the harbor. The kids got a kick out of living on the main street of quaint and lively Southwest Harbor. The location is awesome...a stone's throw from hiking, swimming, kayaking, biking....you name it. We appreciate the welcoming and helpful communication of our hosts.
