2 bedrooms, 2 Queen beds 1 full bathroom, Sleeps max 5 people (with roll-out)

Beautiful summer rental - close to Acadia national park & bar harbor! Great location!!

Don't leave it to late, get that summer date everyone else is starting to look for! Book now! Located in southwest harbor known as the quiet side of mount desert island, minutes from downtown shops and restaurants.The property is set back off main street and next to the golf course! The property is less than a 2 minute drive to echo lake which has its own beach with lifeguards and much warmer water than the ocean, water reaches 75 degrees in the summer very nice for a relaxing swim or just relax the day away with a book.

Its is also close to the stop for the free island explorer shuttle bus that serves the entire island. Southwest harbor is 15 minutes drive from bar harbor and minutes from Acadia national park, hiking, biking, kayaking, whale watching and all of nearby attractions.

very nice

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was very nice. The apartment was very clean and the kitchen was well stocked. We liked the location near town although the road is a little noisy in the morning. Would definitely stay here again.

Fabulous stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this rental for 3 nights and really enjoyed it. The pictures were absolutely accurate...everything in the condo was extremely clean as well. Tim even stopped over to see if we had any questions and to offer some tourist advice. Very helpful!

It was also in a great quiet location and was easy to get to Acadia National Park and to Bar Harbor. We will definitely recommend this property to others and hope we get to visit again!

Super Comfortable family stay

  • 5 of 5

This is our first time going to Acadia National Park. Acadia is absolutely beautiful and breathtaking. MUST COME!! Tim and Sian are super nice and friendly. This place definitely made our family vacation more cozy and enjoyable. Tim and Sian have done a lot to make this place to be our "home away home". Will definitely choose to stay at this location when we come back to Acadia next time.

Perfect for our needs.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clean and just as we expected via the pictures. The owners want to make everyone's stay comfortable and were very informative of the island. The location was great and out of the way of Bar Harbour tourists but still convenient to get to town. We would definitely come back here again.
