Guestbook comments from the owner

It had all the amenities we needed and we were very happy! We also really loved how we could continue on Long Pond Road to get to hiking trails and swimming holes.

Nice place!

  • 5 of 5

Not too big, Not too small. Clean as can be. Like new.

Well equipped. A bit of a drive from Acadia but not too far.

Well off main roads so very quiet. Nice wi-fi.

A comfortable cottage in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been more pleased with the Blueberry Hill cottage. So glad we decided to stay in Southwest Harbor. Only 20 minutes from Bar Harbor without the masses of people and noise. We hiked and biked everywhere and loved coming back to the cottage at night to relax and savor the view out the many windows. Plenty of places to eat in Southwest Harbor and the other villages that are in the area. We have stayed in several VBRO's and will place this cottage at the top of the list.

Very, very clean and large house

  • 5 of 5

The Blueberry house was a great house for our visit to Mt Desert Island. While the location was near Southwest Harbor, it was only about 20 minute drive to the Bar Harbor area. There is still sufficient hiking trails nearby, as well as a large grocery store and liquor store. The house was comfortable for 4 and was incredibly clean. There were plenty of pots, pans, dishes, and utensils in the kitchen. They are enough fans for each bedroom, which was needed because we were there when it was unseasonably warm. The view of the pastures and wooded area made it nice and quiet. The back patio area could use a larger table if you have a full house of guests.

Tip: Go to Dave's Seafood in SW Harbor for fresh lobster.

Beautiful place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was spotless when we arrived and so welcoming. It is a great location and has everything you need to enjoy your stay. We saw some deer and turkeys while sitting out on the deck, which was awesome. We really enjoyed our stay in Southwest Harbor and will definitely return. Kathryn, the owner, was a pleasure to deal with!!!

So beautiful, clean and quiet!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time at this cabin. We spotted wild turkey and deer during our family dinner. We could easily get to fun hikes and beaches in Acadia during the day and come back and relax each evening.

The owners were easy to reach when we lost all water due to a water main break in town.

We would recommend this cabin to anyone wanting to really enjoy Acadia.

The cottage was very clean and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Cottage. Beautiful home with even better views. Was a great home base for our visit to the Island. Everything was so nice. There was plenty of room for my family to spread out and be comfortable. Everything that we needed was there. Kathy was a pleasure to deal with and very accommodating when we had to shift our stay because we had to be back earlier then I expected. I would definitely stay here again next time we visit Acadia.
