I stayed here for one week at the beginning of October (the perfect time to see all the beautiful fall leaves) and cannot say enough pleasant things about the house, the owner of the house, and the surrounding area. In all, the house held me, my wife, another couple and their toddler and a teenager quite comfortably. The kitchen was absolutely fantastic--plenty of room, beautifully appointed and far more supplies, pots and pans than any of us were expecting. And the wifi (which was incredibly fast) and washer and dryer were also very nice little bonuses that we enjoyed throughout the week. But the overall consensus seemed to be that the best part of all about the house was the gorgeous view. What better way to wake up every morning than by looking out of one's window and taking in the sea and mountains all in one view. Absolutely breathtaking!
The owner, Claudia, was more than helpful and kind in the process leading up to renting the house, but also gave us lots of recommendations and help once we arrived there. All of her recommendations of things to do in South West Harbor and the surrounding area were spot on and ended up being some of our favorite things that we did on the trip. The house itself is also quite centrally located, which proved perfect for day trips to Southwest Harbor, Seal Harbor, Acadia National Park and the surrounding area, not to mention all of the restaurants, lobster pounds, bakeries, book shops and hiking trails all within a bike ride or 5 minute drive.
Would highly recommend this lovely house to anyone and will definitely keep this little gem in mind the next time we return to Maine!
