This charming two bedroom condo is ready for you and your family. Pack your toothbrush and come visit the 'Quietside', Southwest Harbor, a working harbor with Acadia National Park as its neighbor. Everything you need is right here including a washer/dryer, fully equipped modern kitchen offering a dishwasher, coffee maker, microwave, and lobster pot. We are located within walking distance of the village and harbor. Walk to the bakery, restaurants, and the free Island Explorer Bus. Bass Harbor Light House and Seawall (Acadia National Park) are just minutes away. Swimming in Echo Lake or kayaking on Long Pond are also nearby. Bar Harbor and the main entrance to Acadia is just a short drive (or bus ride) away. Bicycle rentals are within walking distance.

Two bedroom unit with handicap entrance if needed!: Please note this unit has many options depending on your needs. One-step entrance are just two of the options available.

Spend the day exploring Acadia National Park and your nights enjoying the cool breeze; perfect for sleeping. Feel connected while away with high speed wireless internet access, cable TV, and phone.

The village is just a short walk and the bakery has daily selections to tempt your sweet tooth. The local eateries are one of our best kept secrets.

Guest Comments: We would like to thank you both for allowing us to rent your “home away from home”. It is SO nice! It is in the perfect location to do everything. We just love the décor. You could just tell that every detail was thought out perfectly.

As far as the amenities, well a FIVE STAR HOTEL as nothing on you!! You certainly go overboard with what you offer. We appreciated the 300 thread-count sheets, bath towels, beach chairs, kitchen pans, utensils, coffee filters, gas grill, etc.

We had a fabulous week!! Got 9 hours sleep every night, which has become a rare event. The weather was perfect, with a nice breeze coming off the water to keep us cool. We had good meals, walked into the village, rode bikes, and basically RELAXED and enjoyed spending quality time together.

Thanks again for everything we look forward to returning,

Sue and Walt

COULDN'T ASK FOR ANYTHING MORE

Couldn't Ask for Anything More
  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Ebb Tide with our two daughters (ages 10 and 15), and were absolutely delighted with the apartment. It is immaculately clean, stocked with absolutely everything we needed (including basic food supplies), very comfortable, and on top of all that, very nicely decorated. Lisa, the owner, was a pleasure to deal with.

The location is very practical. A two-minute walk to Southwest Harbor's main area, with a variety of restaurants, bakeries, etc. (don't miss trying Cafe 2/Eat-a-Pita, it was one of our favorites on MDI). And a reasonable drive (15-20 mins) to Bar Harbor and main entrance to Acadia National Park.

The only minor downside was traffic noise early in the morning, as bedroom windows face the main road. One room has an A/C, which we used to keep the room quiet. It wasn't a big deal, but if you're a light sleeper and want to sleep late, be aware.

That said, we were thoroughly satisfied, and would return anytime. And MDI/Acadia is an absolutely wonderful place to visit, especially when blessed with the great weather we had the third week of August.

Thank you, Lisa!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. When setting up EbbTide I tried to use my personal travel experiences and make all those little things available for my guests. I'm glad you and your family enjoyed your stay and appreciate your thoughtfulness.
Southwest Harbor is a working harbor and our fishermen head out to the harbor early...the temps are usually low enough during the night but I agree, the air conditioner does offer white noise. A second unit has been purchased for the 2nd bedroom, I didn't want to interrupt your vacation with the installation but had I known you needed it, would have gladly taken care of that for you.
Please consider EbbTide your home away from home when your travels take you back to our island.

EBB-TIDE IN SOUTHWEST HARBOR

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at the Ebb-Tide in Southwest Harbor very much. The condo was clean and comfortable. It was very handy having a kitchen and washer/dryer. The beds were also very comfortable. We enjoyed the location outside of the Bar Harbor crowds, but it was only a 20 minute drive to Bar Harbor when we wanted to be there. It's a short drive to some very nice shoreline areas on the south end of the island, or to Echo Lake which was great. We also highly recommend a visit to the nearby Atlantic brewery for some great microbrews and some of the best ribs anywhere. We had a great time and would definitely do it again.
Thanks!

A FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time in Maine staying at Ebb Tide! With three young children, it was nice to stay in a condo with all the amenities. We ate breakfast there each morning, and made dinner there several nights. The town is within walking distance and we often walked up for ice cream after dinner. Ebb Tide was very clean and very comfortable. None of us had any trouble sleeping! The washer and dryer came in very handy. Most days, we drove over to Acadia National Park or to Bar Harbor. It was an easy drive to both. On the Quiet Side of the island, we discovered Echo Lake, a great place to swim with kids. We appreciated all of Lisa's recommendations of places to eat and to see!! She has great taste!! Thanks for everything! Heather and Brian

GREAT, COZY, VERY CLEAN CONDO

  • 5 of 5
my boyfriend and i, along with another couple, stayed here for 4 nights over labor day weekend. it was a great, hassle-free experience. lisa, the proprietor, was extremely helpful and professional. she offered to make reservations at restaurants, recommended activities. when we arrived, there were maps and recommendations for places to see, trails to hike on the table for us. this is a house that is meticulously clean and organized. there were labels for literally everything. one of the nights, we cooked a lobster in the kitchen and also used the grill outside. the kitchen is fully stocked not only with pots and pans, but also spices, teas, etc. there are 2 nicely decorated bedrooms, each with a comfortable queen-size bed. there was some street noise from the street outside, but it wasn't an issue unless you left the windows open. in terms of location, it's right next to the main street in Southwest Harbor, which is only a few blocks, but still has restaurants, bars and shops. i am so glad we stayed in Southwest Harbor versus Bar Harbor. it was so much cuter and more quaint.

ENJOYING THE QUIETSIDE AT EBB-TIDE

  • 5 of 5
I really enjoyed my stay in Ebb-Tide. Everything was in very good condition, clean and the beds were comfortable. Southwest Harbor is a really good location because even though it is close to Bar Harbor, it is far enough away that you avoid much of the traffic caused by people visiting that town. The entrance for Park Loop Road is also near by, so it is an excellent place to stay if you want to visit the park. I would recommend this place to both my family and friends. Reel Pizza in BH was a great. We enjoyed Thurston's Lobster Pound and Sips Restaurants also.
