This rental was even better than we had anticipated! The exterior of the house was bedecked with beautiful potted and planted flowers and shrubs. The gracious owners made an extra effort to greet us soon after our arrival, even though one of them had just gotten out of the hospital. They offered very helpful info regarding the rental and the area. We were very pleasantly surprised to find a bottle of wine and a large bowl of fresh fruit upon our entry to the rental unit, in addition to a list of services, restaurants, and wifi instructions. There are 4 units attached to each other, from the street back, with the owners living in the rearmost unit, and the forward 3 being rental units. Our rental unit #1 was nearest the road, but since the building is set back from the street, we didn't have a problem with street noise. It was very clean and well maintained, with modern appliances, furniture and fixtures. The 2 bedrooms were at opposite ends of the rental, a good privacy factor. The very nice outdoor gas grill saved some money and time for dinner preparation as well. Paper products, dish detergent, liquid hand soap, spices, garbage bags, coffee and tea, etc. were also on hand upon our arrival. The beds were very comfortable, with generous, fluffy pillows and soft linens. Ample, soft, absorbent towels were in the bathroom as well. A handy dumpster was provided for trash, and there was more than ample parking for everyone.
We enjoyed the Drydock Restaurant and Beal's Lobster Pier in Southwest Harbor, Galyn's Restaurant in Bar Harbor (on the porch facing the harbor and park), and Harbor Girl Emporium in Winter Harbor (lobster rolls!!!). Acadia National Park was majestically beautiful, especially Otter Point tidal pools and Cadillac Mountain. However, we found the Schoodic Peninsula to be stupendous, with wild waves, rocky coast and new vistas at every curve in the road. We also had an amazing whale watch out of Bar Harbor, sighting 6 whales!
We would definitely recommend this rental to anyone wanting a carefree and quiet home away from home in Southwest Harbor, and recommend Southwest Harbor over Bar Harbor, as Bar Harbor goes over the line to the touristy and kitschy, while Southwest Harbor is a working harbor, with just enough "touristy" to make it convenient for we visitors.

The photos do not do this place justice. We arrived to find a cozy, charming, very clean and uncluttered space. The rooms are a nice size, and the beds and bedding are very comfortable - a great place to retire to after a day of hiking. Some of us had to plug in to work during the week, and the wireless worked great. In fact, it really felt just like home: along with the internet, there is cable TV, a fully-stocked kitchen, towels and bedding, air conditioning, an outdoor grill and picnic area, parking, even little extras like beach chairs to take to the beach.
The location is also fantastic: southwest harbor is known as the quiet side, and has a great "small town" feel - quaint cafes, bakeries, and restaurants just down the road, a great grocery store a 5-minute walk away, and close to the beach at echo lake and numerous hiking trails. It's also just a short drive from bar harbor, northeast harbor, and bass harbor.
Tim was totally responsive during the booking process, and when we had any questions during our stay. A pleasure to rent from.
It was so wonderful and we would definitely rent again!

This is a great place. Everything was neat, clean, and new. It had everything we needed, blender, toaster, coffee maker. Grill out back was perfect for eating in. Also, close to Beals Lobster, for good seafood you can get take out. Not to far from Acadia Park and Bar Harbor, but enough away to have a little peace from tourists. We had two babies with us and space was fine. Highly recommend!

There is also : Whale watching / Lobster boat tours / Sail boat trips / Sea fishing / Fresh water fishing / Water Taxis to the surrounding Islands / Horse drawn carriage rides (from Jordon Pond House, a beautiful part of the park) / Sand Beach also in the park / Echo Lake Beach, in Southwest Harbor (a very popular beach with locals & tourists alike, offering restrooms, changing facilities and lifeguards) a great way to laze away a day! / The Cat, a 92 meter (300 foot) Sea Cat Going from Bar Harbor to Nova Scotia (Canada) in 2 hours 45 minutes! and lots more, so come and rent our place and get some more useful tips from us!

Thank you, Tim & Sian
