We enjoyed staying in Southwest Harbor, avoiding the crowded Bar Harbor area. Since we had a car, this was very convenient. We loved the town of Southwest Harbor, and had a few great meals there.
The condo was clean and tidy, and had everything we needed - except Wifi. There is no WiFi, and no Verizon coverage. So if you are a Verizon cell phone customer, your data access is very limited. The whole Mt Desert Island seems to be a roaming area for Verizon, with nothing but 1X data speeds, so it was almost impossible to access data. We have become dependent upon data connections to search for restaurant reviews, hiking trails, and general information about the areas we visit. The TV channels available were very limited as well. Because of this we would probably not stay here again.
Also, it is a ground floor condo, with a nice little patio area - if the weather permits. In the fall, this was too cold for us to use, and the condo itself was rather dark. However, for a summer visit, this property would probably be great, especially if you want to avoid the crowded and touristy areas.
We appreciated access to laundry facilities, but be advised that is a coin operated laundry, so have quarters handy, and bring your own laundry soap. Since this is a private condo building, there is no change machine or soap dispenser available for purchase.
