Just what we were looking for: tastefully furnished, quiet, away from but not too far from village of Southwest Harbor .

PERFECT WINTER GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We drove from NYC and stayed in the carriage house for three nights over Valentine's weekend and it was the perfect place for a snowy, cozy getaway. Ken and Cyd have thought of everything — the carriage house was perfectly equipped with everything we needed. We spent two nights cooking at home and the kitchen was fully stocked with no detail spared. The bedroom was lovely and the bed was very comfortable. And we loved the heater above the shower - perfect for the winter months. There was a big snowstorm whilst we were there and our favorite spot quickly became camped in front of the gas fireplace, drinking wine and playing Scrabble, which we found in a little cupboard by the couch. By the time we woke, the driveway had already been cleared and shoveled. Ken and Cyd also had lots of pamphlets, maps and menus for local attractions, which we used to plan our trips to Acadia and Bar Harbor. They were incredibly welcoming hosts, very responsive during the planning process and willing to answer any questions during our stay. We loved our visit to the carriage house and would definitely like to stay again!

COZY AND CHARMING

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here for a week this summer. It is a very clean and tastefully decorated home. The owners were very helpful. It was a nice quiet place to come back to after a day of much activity. We have been renting vacation homes (3 in Acadia) for many years and this is one of the nicest we have stayed in. We will definitely stay here when we return to Maine the next time.

FANTASTIC!

  • 5 of 5
We loved Ken and Cyd's place due to the hominess and well equipped Carriage House. We really enjoyed being on the "quiet side" of MDI. The location was private but very close to great hiking, biking and swimming. We loved our strolls to the town through woods and over a granite causeway. Ken and Cyd are two very friendly and helpful hosts. They really go out of their way to make their guests feel comfortable. We can't wait to return to the Carriage House in the woods!

LOVELY PLACE FROM WHICH TO ENJOY A BEAUTIFUL AREA

  • 5 of 5
We truly enjoyed our stay at this cottage. We had a wonderful week of activities, and at the end of every day it was great to look forward to coming "home" to the Carriage House. It was so attractive, clean, relaxing, and colorful. We were both sad to leave at the end of our week.
Besides doing a lot of hiking, on our last night we went on a sunset cruise on the Margaret Todd, a beautiful four-masted schooner, out of Bar Harbor. It was great to watch the crew work the sails, and lovely views and a memorable sunset.
The Collins' are great hosts, very willing to share information and suggetions about the area. They made us feel very welcome. This was our second visit with them and look forward to other stays here in the future.

RELAXING RETREAT

  • 4 of 5
If we ever return to Southwest Harbor we will definately stay here again. The cottage was exactly as described. There was nothing left to ask for.All we needed was a market and the owners led us to one nearby. The owners even left detailed maps of the area that we could explore on foot. If you are considering a couples retreat, this cottage is the place for you.
