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

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!

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.

HARBOR STAR COTTAGE HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
Three sisters and two of their daughters used Harbor Star Cottage as a home base as we explored Acadia National Park and the Bar Harbor area. This cottage is perfect-so clean and beautifully decorated. The kitchen is equipped with the best of appliances, utensils, and cookware. There are spa like soaps at every sink and "green" cleaning products. We were beyoned comfortable. One other very important bit: the owners are easy to contact and quick with their arrangements. Highly recommend.

HARBOR STAR COTTAGE IS GREAT!

  • 5 of 5
This was the second year my 80 year old parents and I stayed at the Harbor Star Cottage. What an ideal location and setting, away from the crowds of Bar Harbor but close enough to get everywhere a tourist would like to go. House is well equipped (and clean!) with everything you could need, great kitchen, comfortable beds and two full baths. Im hopeful we will be able to return again next summer.

Map

Car: recommended

Harbor Star Cottage is located on the 'quiet side' of Mount Desert Island, convenient to many outdoor activities on the Island and Acadia National Park such as canoeing, kayaking, hiking, biking, swimming and carriage rides, yet only a scenic 15 mile drive to the shops, attractions and restaurants of Bar Harbor. The cottage is located about 4.3 miles from picturesque and historic Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse, 1.5 miles from Long Pond, and 3 miles to Echo Lake Beach.
