Cozy apartment so near acadia

  • 4 of 5

Everything was as anticipated. Tim was there to greet us after a very long drive. Location,location location. The southwest harbor was great for us. My husband enjoyed biking the carriage trails of Acadia and I enjoyed the scenery for painting, returning to our home base for the evening. Southwest harbor has restaurants but we only tried the lobster at Thurstons and Beals, with both being equal...Beals closer. If you want the excitement of shops and people, stay closer to bar harbor. Unfortunately the island express was not running yet so we did a fair amount of driving but rarely having traffic problems as it was before high season. A great time...thanks tim

Roomy property close to Acadia

  • 5 of 5

Very nicely upgraded 2 bedroom in the heart of Mt. Desert Island. (Acadia)

With the roll-away, everyone in our family of 4 got their own bed. We enjoyed Acadia and had a great experience with a pair of loons at Echo Lake (2 minute drive). Thurstons Lobster Pound 10 minutes. (Best meal ever)

Cozy place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Tim’s place in Southwest Harbor near Acadia National Park. It is close to Echo Lake and lots of other wonderful sights and amazing trails. Restaurants, local shops and a grocery store are only a minute away and although the place is on the main drag, it still has a country feel and is quiet at night. The two-bedroom unit was neat and clean. Tim popped in to say hello, which was a nice touch. We would stay there again if we could get a booking. I heard it fills up quickly during tourist season.

Great place! especially for the money

  • 4 of 5

This is a great place in Southwest Harbor. There were 3 of us that stayed there for 5 nights. The house was comfortable with a nice well supplied and appointed kitchen and a nice TV that worked great. The Wifi was good fast internet. We would definitely stay here again if it is just my wife and I next time. A decent grocery store is less than a quarter of a mile away and that is where the laundry mat that was recommended. (This laundry was not clean and a large percentage of the machines did not work. It did have free Wifi but that was the best you could say. There is another laundry a little further into town and although we didn't check it out I would recommend at least looking at that one if you need one. And there is a significantly better grocery store in Bar Harbor.)

Here are my knocks on this place: It's not Bar Harbor, not much to do about this, we knew what we were doing, but we did go to Bar Harbor every day. Would have been nicer although expensive to be there. The place is hard to see as you approach it at night, some kind of sign or light would be nice. Even after 5 nights it always seemed to sneak up on us. A little more attention to detail by the cleaning crew would probably be worth the effort.

The owners were perfect, they provided everything they said they would and never interrupted our trip for anything and that always means a lot. Thank you guys very much. We do recommend this place with the understanding that the place is a little remote from where you may want to be.

There is plenty to do and see on Mount Desert Island. There is the obvious attraction of Acadia National Park and all it offers. There is the charm of Bar Harbor, offering evening shopping and restaurants galore! There is also : Whale watching / Lobster boat tours / Sail boat trips / Sea fishing / Fresh water fishing / Water Taxis to the surrounding Islands / Horse drawn carriage rides (from Jordon Pond House, a beautiful part of the park) / Sand Beach also in the park / Echo Lake Beach, in Southwest Harbor (a very popular beach with locals & tourists alike, offering restrooms, changing facilities and lifeguards) a great way to laze away a day! / and lots more, so come and rent our place and get some more useful tips from us!

Thank you, Tim & Sian
