The Perfect Summer Retreat

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we were greeted by our gracious hosts Cyd and Ken we could not have felt more at home. Everything we had read about the Carriage House prior to our arrival proved to be spot on. In fact, it exceeded our expectations. Comfortable, well equipped, clean and well maintained, quiet and private are just some of the adjectives that describe the Carriage House. Our hosts were always eager to answer questions, provide recommendations, and offer assistance yet always respected our privacy. We had our cocker spaniel with us and she also loved the spacious yard, especially sitting by the chimenea with a fire while we enjoyed wine after a full day. It is a fabulous location close to Southwest Harbor but far enough away to feel like a relaxing retreat. We can't wait to return and would recommend it without reservation.

Lovely base for exploring Acadia

  • 5 of 5
The Artist's Retreat is an ideal base for a couple to explore Acadia. The carriage house is small, but comfortable and well maintained. The owners provide great information and support as needed, but are very respectful of their guests privacy.

The photos and overall presentation of the carriage house on the website are quite accurate. The living area is small but comfortable, with a couple nice sofas. It opens into a well equipped kitchen with a small table for dining. The bedroom is a nice size, and there is enough closet space. The carriage house sits within an open space in pine woods, and there is an outdoor seating area good for reading or just enjoying the peace and quiet.

The property is situated a bit far from the town of Southwest Harbor. It is possible to walk into town without going on the main highway (Maine 102), but it's more a hike than a stroll, and takes about 30 minutes. So any shopping and restaurant visits are best done by car.

This is a beautiful place in perfect condition and I highly recommend it as a base for exploring Acadia.

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!
