Terrific Place

We really enjoyed our stay in this house. It was clean and nice and well appointed. I was great for 3 couples. We walked to Southwest Harbor and enjoyed all of Acadia with this house as a perfect jumping off point.

Clean, quiet and spacious

  • 5 of 5
I would recommend this spacious three bedroom house to anyone traveling with their family. It was exceptionally clean with plenty of room for our family of six to each have enough room to move around without being in each other's way. The outdoor deck had seating enough for all of us to relax and enjoy our morning coffee. I would definitely return in the future.

Wonderful Experience ...

  • 5 of 5
In this newly renovated home. Incredibly helpful owner who makes sure that you have a week of comfort. Close to Acadia NP. Walking distance from downtown Southwest Harbor. We enjoyed our stay, highly recommended! We took our kids 21 and 18 and they had a great time too. Plenty of room. Just can't say enough about this property! We had an excellent time here and know you will too!

Can't beat this deal

Can't beat this deal

Our family of 4 (myself, wife, 2 sons ages 5 and 3) just spent a week at this newly renovated house in Southwest Harbor. It is by far the best deal in Acadia. Newly renovated farmhouse with a lot of style and amenities. Should easily be priced way over $2,000 per week compared with other properties of this quality in the nearby area. Very clean. The owner is also very helpful and always looking to find ways to improve the experience for us -- provided us with a lot of children's books, beach toys for the week. Very close to the town of Southwest Harbor and about 15-20 drive from the main parts of Acadia National Park. Is on a main road but we really couldn't hear any traffic at all. Highly recommend this property!

With Acadia National Park being the main attraction to the area there is an abundance of activities to keep one occupied almost endlessly. The miles of trails for hiking, carriage roads for biking, scenic drives and miles of shoreline to kayak or sail just can't be done in a week or even an entire summer. However if during your stay you do start to feel you've had your fill of the great outdoors, or are maybe just too sore to put one foot in front of the other, there are many other activities to choose from. World famous gardens such as the Azalea, Asticou and the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller, which is a private garden but can be viewed when scheduled ahead of time, are all worth seeing. There is even a small but very quaint garden, The Charlotte Rhoades Park and Butterfly Garden, just a minutes walk from Nepenthe. Museums, art galleries, fine dining, fun boutiques with work from local artists, wildlife excursions and of course some incredibly fabulous spas to choose from! What would a vacation be without treating yourself to an amazing massage or facial! For the sea fairing lover kayaking to one of the outer islands and enjoying your own private picnic or savoring a sunset sail with one of the local companies in town is a must. If a quiet night is NOT what you had in mind many of the restaurants and bars provide live music and dancing as well.

Venturing off Island, Mount Desert Island that is, to explore some equally beautiful areas such as Baxter State Park which can be done in a day trip or a very long day trip if you plan on hiking the highest peak in Maine Mt. Katahdin! The Eastern most point in the United States, Lubec, and crossing over into New Brunswick and visiting Campobello Island is also only a day trip away.

Although there is never a shortage of sights and activities spring through fall most people don't know the area can be enjoyed year round. Cross country skiing, snowshoeing, ice fishing and even snowmobiling is allowed on most of the paved park roads. Checking with park headquarters is advised ahead of time but with proper planning a sunset trip up Cadillac via snowmobile, or snowshoeing if you’re into that, can be pretty amazing. Whatever your agenda may be or the time of year you are able to visit this is definitely a place putting at the top of your list and making it happen.
