Southwest Harbor Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Sunny 2 Br, 1 Bath Cottage, Sleeps 6. Located On Quiet Street, Close To Town.

New to the rental market in Summer 2014, Robin’s Nest is perched at the top of a quiet, dead-end street, less than a mile walking distance to the center of Southwest Harbor. The town center offers a variety of restaurants, shops, public library, and playground. Catch glimpses of harbor views from many rooms in this sweet 2 bedroom, 1 bath home.

The cottage has a very comfortable layout and can accommodate 6 guests. The kitchen, dining room, and living room are on the first floor; two bedrooms and a bathroom (with tub/shower) are located on the second floor. The largest of the bedrooms has a queen-sized bed, with ample room to put a pack and play or toddler mattress in the room. The second bedroom has two twin beds. A sleeper sofa in the downstairs living room can accommodate two additional guests. The washer and dryer are located in the basement and are available for guest use.

Robin’s Nest is well landscaped, with a sunny rear deck, private back yard, paved driveway, and single-car garage, where you may store your bikes or kayaks. The home is tastefully decorated and well appointed. The owners have young children and are happy to accommodate yours. A portable crib, high chair, and other baby and child items are available upon request. Please contact the owner with your special needs. Pets are negotiable.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was by far the best summer we've had yet! The house was awesome; the fun never stopped! The hike up Cadillac Mountain was strenuous, but the view was amazing. The fact that it's the "quiet side" of the island, and that it's just down the road to Main Street, and The Upper Deck. This was an awesome experience here in Southwest Harbor! Five Stars!

The perfect getaway spot

  • 5 of 5
We were the second guests to stay at Robin’s Nest, and had a fabulous vacation. With a toddler and dog, we had many specifications: close proximity to Acadia's sites, open space for our dog, safe for a clumsy toddler bent on independent exploration, and good amenities for cooking/ BBQing, just to name a few. And, this cottage met and exceeded all of these expectations.

The location is perfect – while on the “quiet side of the island,” the area is brimming with things to do. The "downtown" is cute, with shops, a library, and good restaurants (many have outdoor seating and are dog friendly). It’s a 10-minute drive from a number of Acadia attractions, such as the Seawall beach area and the Wonderland hiking trail (perfect for little ones). In addition, it was about a ~20 minute drive to more well-known attractions of Acadia, such as Cadillac Mountain and Jordan Pond. We really enjoyed being close to everything we wanted to see, but not in an overwhelmingly busy area of the island.

In addition, the cottage is incredibly well-kept, beautiful, and comfortable. The view of the harbor from the sitting room window is stunning, and there is a well-landscaped backyard and small apple orchard to explore. The neighborhood is very quiet as well, so you don’t have to worry about cars barreling down the street (which is good, especially when you have an off-leash dog and toddler).

And, the owners are incredibly hospitable and responsive. We arrived following a tropical storm, and the power had gone out in the whole neighborhood. While we were without power for the first few days of our trip, the owners set us up with a generator to power the fridge and hot water, flashlights, and candles. And, they kept in touch with us throughout the beginning of our trip to update us on the status of the power and respond to any of our needs. While the power situation was completely out of their control, they struck the perfect balance of attentiveness, while maintaining boundaries to give us privacy. Turns out that the power outage was the perfect way for my family to unplug and really relax, so it actually ended up being a real benefit to our vacation. But, to be clear, there is cable, Internet, and anything you need if you want to stay plugged in … barring another tropical storm.

We couldn’t recommend this cottage more highly. It’s tempting to keep it as a secret so we don’t have competition to stay there – but, it’s way too lovely to keep to ourselves. Enjoy!
