Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at Dockside so much. John, the owner, was very easy to work with. On the second day of our arrival, he brought us a large share of fresh vegetables from his garden. He was very welcoming and greeted us warmly. He was very willing to share his knowledge about the area & actually suggested a little known location where we ended up having our wedding ceremony, it was perfect. The house was quintessential Maine and is located right next door to a working lobster pound. It was great watching the lobster fishermen and visiting with them, they are very open to talking about their craft. The view is spectacular! You can sit on the deck outside or view the harbor from the living room, kitchen or master bedroom. The house is large and gives it's guests plenty of room to spread out. The house is very well stocked, including all that is needed for a home cooked lobster dinner. It was a true Maine experience. We took the kayaks out and paddled into Somes Sound, that was a treat. We loved staying in Southwest Harbor, a.k.a. the "quiet side". The house is a short walk into town where there are shops & restaurants. We loved walking to town as there are residents who sale baked goods, jams & jellies, all on the honor system. That was very refreshing, Mainers are very friendly people. We made daily trips to Acadia National Park and the surrounding area, all were 20-30 minute drives. SW Harbor was the perfect home base. We went to Maine to get married, it was magical. John and his wife Leanne brought over a floral arrangement and card to celebrate our marriage, it was very touching. We fell in love with Maine and it's residents and plan on returning in a few years.

Great place

  • 5 of 5
My family gathered here and it was perfect. Big table in the kitchen to gather around - or the fireplace in the living room. The kitchen has everything you might need for cooking and serving. The house feels like a family cottage rather than a rental. Cosy, comfortable and well supplied. Location is great with harbor activity to watch and an easy walk into SW village. And right next door a lobster pound with great prices - we got lobsters for 7 for $33. Margery is very nice and helpful. Would definitely rent this place again.
