Overview

Southwest Harbor Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

The Knollette--Tucked away in the woods on a quiet, private lane, this fully equipped cottage with grassy yard is a short walk to a unique water and mountain view and low-tide play area, as well as to the center of Southwest Harbor in the heart of the Quietside of Mount Desert Island. (Google marks the house closer to the water on our lane than it is.) In town, there is shopping, dining and access to the Island Explorer, the free shuttle to all parts of MDI and Acadia National Park. The Park provides opportunities to hike, bike the carriage roads, canoe or kayak or walk the scenic ocean-side walks. There are also opportunities to rent boats to play on the beautiful waters of the Great Harbor or to golf, antique hunt, eat seafood and explore the surrounding islands.

About The Owner

Our family has been enjoying MDI since we were little in the mid-1900s. We live on the property nearby and are here to provide assistance. We are 3 brothers, two with wives, who act, golf, play tennis, hike and sail among other things while we are able to be here, sometimes together.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1975

Why The Owner chose Southwest Harbor

Our family, 'twas our grandparents, began visiting MDI in 1900 and we cannot imagine vacationing elsewhere.

What makes this cottage unique

At the base of Causeway lane is the causeway and its bridge. At near high tide, many adventuresome folks love to jump off the bridge and body surf under the bridge. At low tide it is time for shells.

Then, at the cottage, we also love watching the deer wander the property.

What a Wonderful, Comfortable Place

  • 5 of 5
This cottage is in such a beautiful setting you almost hate to leave. And when you do you don't have to go very far. The causeway at the end of the semi-private lane lured us down there morning and evening every day to watch the tide flow in and out of Norwood Cove. The heart of Southwest Harbor with its restaurants and shops is an easy walk away. Beautiful Bass Harbor is just down the road.
As mentioned earlier, the house has everything you need from cooking gear to spices to laundry detergent and paper goods. It has good Wi-Fi and cable TV. It has nice towels and sheets and very good beds. The owner's book was full of great suggestions, and we took advantage of their ideas almost every day.
The Knollette is not a fancy place, but it is a very accommodating place. We loved it from the moment we first saw it. The four of us Acadia first-timers agree that Southwest Harbor and the Knollette is the place to be on Mount Desert. We will be back.

Exactly as advertised

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful place, complete with many of the essentials you want but wouldn't think to bring or buy (cooking utensils and spices, laundry detergent, board games, playing cards, etc.). The suggestions were all excellent and it was nice to be away from the hubbub of Bar Harbor. We were very close to the delightful rocky water area pictured and a reasonable bike ride from the Seawall (a great picnic/book-reading spot). I wish we had come during the peak months, since some things in Southwest Harbor were closed and there was a bit of construction, but otherwise I have no regrets.

Perfect place to explore Mount Desert Island

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Knollette for a short break whilst in the USA, it was everything that we hoped it would be comfortable and clean with everything that we needed for our stay there. Knollette was a perfect base for us to explore the island from. Ken was extremely helpful in answering questions and sorting out an easy way to be paid from the UK, he was also really helpful in advising us due to the government shutdown.

I would highly recommend the cottage and if it wasn't so far would love to return to it. We enjoyed cycling and walking in Acadia and also went whale watching from Bar Harbour.

Just perfect for our family of four

  • 5 of 5
This was just what we were looking for!! This house was nice, quiet, and secluded, but we could walk to great restaurants for dinner (Sips and Cafe 2). The house had everything we needed, and we did stay in and cook a couple of nights too. After touring the island for the week, I would choose SW Harbor again and the Knollette. The kids had ice cream almost every night at Quietside Cafe. We enjoyed several of the hikes mentioned by the owners, ranger talks in the Park, boat tour with Island Cruises (afternoon nature cruise was great), and ate lobster every day. Would go back in a heartbeat!

Charming Little Cottage in a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5
My mom, two small children, and I stayed here for a week in July and aboslutely loved it. I wish we had booked for two weeks!! It's small, but perfect for a couple or a small family. It's tucked away in the woods and very private, but just a quick (and lovely!) stroll into town. The woods and yard and perfect for small kids. Southwest Harbor is definitely the place to stay - plenty to do, but still quiet and away from the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor. Can't wait to come back next year!!

Wonderful Maine Getaway

  • 5 of 5
The cottage is a perfect "quiet side" base to explore Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park. Property is clean, very well maintained, and stocked with everything one would need for a weekend or month-long stay. Owner met us at our arrival and provided a wealth of recommendations--especially helpful since we visited in mid-September and a few restaurants had closed for the season (Beal's Lobster Pier is a short walk and well worth it). Highest recommendation!
