We couldn't have been happier with the home, location, and overall experience. Christie very obviously cares about the comfort of her guests and I can't think of a single thing that was overlooked. Southwest Harbor exceeded our expectations, far quieter than past stays in Bar Harbor but with just enough great shops and eateries close by. Echo Lake and the Beech Mountain trails were incredible, and the kids absolutely loved Wonderland at low tide. We'll definitely be back!
A great base for exploring MDI
The property is clean and comfortable and has a lovely view over the harbor. It's an easy walk into town, and on the main road for heading out to explore the park and island. We could relax with our coffee on the deck in the morning, while the sun came up over the water, and grill or make s'mores in the evening. Our kids absolutely loved the sleeping porch and its supply of books and games.
We had a great stay here. The house was clean and was in a great location (close to town and close to Acadia National Park) The Owner was excellent to work with. Thanks for the great week.
Lovely home and gracious hostess!
Everything was just fine and everyone loved the summer porch! Only issues were busy traffic in early morning making sleeps a little more difficult and the rutted driveway you mentioned to get off the road and down in an easy way. Jordan was great in helping us with the TV's. Our motley crew were very happy with your home. Thank you!
Have visited Mt Dessert Isle many times (7-8?) and although we've explored Southwest Harbor, we've never stayed there until this past week. Definitely the quieter side of the Island. Christie's house was perfect and just what we were looking for. She communicates VERY well and her house was in a very convenient location. A very short walk to several restaurants in town and only about 15 minutes from the park entrance on Rt 233. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend both this side of the Island and Christie's house!!
Thank you for staying here with us this past fall! I'm so happy that you enjoyed your stay here on the quietside! Should you come back this way give us a call! Hope you had a great winter season!
Clean, comfortable home in nice village setting
We felt at home immediately. The house was easy to find and had everything we wanted. Particularly liked the small town of Southwest Harbor. We had a choice of restaurants, all within walking distance.
The overall location was close enough to Bar Harbor and the park, but not so close that we were crushed by cruise ship visitors. There is plenty to do, we didn't even scratch the surface. The weather was great except for one kinda rainy-misty day which gave us a rest from trekking around Acadia.
This was our first trip to Maine and I'm glad we found this cottage for our base of operations.
Thank you for the nice review! I'm so happy that you enjoyed your stay here with us in SWH! Hopefully this was the first of many more trips to MDI!
Many ferries are available to explore surrounding islands. Also, whale watching trips, lobster fishing excursions, and sunset wind jammer cruises add an element of adventure to any vacation.
