LOVED OUR STAY HERE!

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying at Central House. We had 4 kids and 4 adults and everyone was very comfortable. The teenagers stayed in the apartment on the top floor so they had their own space, the grandparents stayed on the first floor and everyone had their own bathroom. The house was well-furnished. The bathrooms were quite deluxe and the beds were comfortable. We especially loved the front porch for reading and relaxing. We were less than a block from the charming town center of Southwest Harbor and we enjoyed patronizing the restaurants, shops and market there. We were a very short walk to the Island shuttle bus as well. We highly recommend this house.

THE IDEAL GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We cannot say enough about Central House! The house itself was beautiful. All of the bedrooms were very spacious and they each had a fantastic en suite. From the lovely hardwood floors to the fabulous homey kitchen to the windows that opened to let in the fresh air - this house was perfect. The location of Central House was ideal. We could walk to the town and there were a number of excellent restaurants for dinner. The house was only 20 minutes from the National Park and Bar Harbor, but Southwest Harbor was very peaceful. We were able to meet Barbara at Central House, which was an added bonus. She showed us around the house and gave us helpful information about the area. We loved the house and the area! We would definitely stay at Central House again.

WONDERFUL IN TOWN ESCAPE

  • 5 of 5
fantastic place for a family reunion or just get away but not too far. the bed rooms were HUGE and baths to match. the 3rd floor apt was wonderful as a second kitchen/eating area or just allow for privacy and relaxation. house had all the amenities that any person or family would need. the owners have tried to think of every detail that anyone would want. the driveway was large and allowed the kids to play without worrying about traffic. lobster pound 1/2 mile down the road, close to town for shopping. i would recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing get away but with TONS of stuff to do within minutes; including the Island Explorer bus to get you over to Bar Harbor and Park Loop Rd. Highly recommended.
