About Melissa and David Mohon

We love the Acadia area and vacation ourselves there every year. One of our favorite things to do in the area is to take the Carriage Rides from Wildwood Stables to Jordan Pond Teahouse.

Melissa and David Mohon purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Melissa and David Mohon chose Southwest Harbor

I was stationed in Maine while in the Navy and fell in love with Acadia National Park and the Mount Desert Island region. I wanted to have a place for my family to vacation in the summer and also to provide a relaxing and comfortable place for other families to enjoy while visiting all the attractions of the Acadia area!

Wonderful Cottage and great time!

  • 5 of 5
We just got back from an awesome stay at the Harbor Star Cottage. David and Melissa had everything we needed right at our fingertips. Keurig coffee galore, lovely laundry detergent, and every little thing that we would have at home but never think of packing.

My family had a blast and with 4 kids, my wife and I needed the room to get some peace! This cottage gave us plenty of room to get our own space when needed.

We would definitely book again if we go back. Great value!

Return Guests Love Harbor Star Cottage!

  • 5 of 5
We are just wrapping up our second stay at Harbor Star, and it has been every bit as wonderful as last year. The thing we will add to our previous review is how well the cottage was prepared for our arrival. We have rented many vacation properties over the years, but nowhere have we found the thoughtful and generous provisioning as at Harbor Star. We feel like welcome guests at someone's home, not just customers at someone's business. We love being spoiled this way and look forward to more of the same next summer! Our thanks to Melissa and David for our "home away!"

The Best

  • 5 of 5
This "cottage" is truly a home away from home. We spent our 50th anniversary exploring the Maine coast, and truly enjoyed returning after a long day and relaxing without the usual commotion found in a more urban setting. Communications from Dave and Melissa was great, and everything about the cottage was as advertised. The photos on the website do not do justice to the coziness and hominess of the this home. Very convenient via a short drive to Southwest Harbor and Bar Harbor. 30 minutes to almost anywhere you wish to go in the area of the park. Thanks to Dave and Melissa for a wonderful stay.

Harbor "5-Star" Cottage!

Harbor "5-Star" Cottage!
  • 5 of 5
We have just completed a delightful stay at Harbor Star Cottage and can recommend it highly. Nothing about the cottage says, "rental"; everything about it says, "home." Inside and out, it is constructed, decorated, equipped, and maintained to a very high standard.

Its location is ideal. Southwest Harbor is Mount Desert Island's best-kept secret: a working fishing village...an authentic Coastal Maine town...twenty minutes from the summer crush of humanity in Bar Harbor. Southwest Harbor has excellent restaurants, fun shopping, and all the necessary services. The cottage is also ideally located within Southwest Harbor: on a wooded lot in a quiet residential neighborhood just minutes from town center.

The owners are wonderful to work with...quick to respond and very accommodating. We cannot imagine anyone's being disappointed with Harbor Star Cottage as their island retreat. We have already reserved for next year!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your very kind words! We try very hard to make the cottage feel like home, so it is wonderful to hear that it felt that way to our guests. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your time at Harbor Star and look forward to your visit next year!

Far Exceeded our Expectations!

  • 5 of 5
Harbor Star Cottage was absolutely perfect! My husband and I and our 4 children spent a week here. We were very active during the day; hiking, kayaking, biking, etc. and coming home to the cottage every afternoon/evening was such a pleasure! It was so cozy and comfortable that it was as good as being home. The cottage is immaculate, well organized and the homeowner clearly thought of everything, down to the delightful selection of wonderful smelling laundry detergents! I am going to recommend this cottage to all of my friends and if I ever go back to Maine, I will definitely be staying at Harbor Star Cottage again!

Lovely cottage - just like the pictures

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had a wonderful 8-day stay in the cottage. It has all the amenities you could need and everything is in terrific shape. The kitchen is fully equiped and has nice, new appliances. The decor is lovely and very cozy. It looks exactly like the pictures, only they don't convey how comfy everything is. Melissa was very quick to answer all of our questions too. It is in a quiet neighborhood off the main road which is a big plus, but you do need to drive to everything. Still, the island is small enough that nothing is more than 20 minutes away. Highly recommended.
