What makes this house unique

Enjoy a tranquil location while still being able to walk into town for your blueberry muffin and paper in the morning!

Great local restaurants including fine dining, beautiful galleries to explore and take in the local artist talent, and a beautiful harbor to top it all off!

Great, spacious property in a nice wooded area

  • 5 of 5

A great place to stay if you want to enjoy Acadia without the mobs of people and commercialism of Bar Harbor. Marc, the owner, is more than happy to share his knowledge of the area to ensure that you have a good time. We will return!

Wonderful Hideaway

  • 4 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay on our trip to Maine. The cabins are hidden away in the woods within walking distance to the little hamlet of Southwest Harbor. In addition you are only 15 min drive to Bar Harbor or to the entrance to Acidia National Park. The owners of the cabins are very personable and helpful in any way needed. The cabins are clean and cozy with everything you will need for an escape from the rush of modern society . We couldn't have been happier with our stay and will definitely return.

Restful home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

Anna’s was our home for a week’s sightseeing around the island. It is a restful spot, while being conveniently sited for an easy walk into town. The local stores served our needs well. The friendly bakers does wonderful bread and pizza. Our accommodations were clean, quiet and well-maintained. We had a BBQ at our disposal and all the necessary ingredients for home away from home. Highly recommended.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have been going on vacation to MDI in the fall for 14 years. We decided to make a last minute trip this August and we were so lucky that Anna's Quietside had a cancellation. The apartment is very clean and spacious. It also has comfortable beds. We cooked several meals in the kitchen and on the outside grill. We found everything we needed in the well equipped kitchen. Our 3 year old loved picking vegetables from the garden for her own salad. Marc is very knowledgeable about the area. He can help with activity and restaurant choices. He is available if you need him. The apartment is in a great location. There are several good restaurants within walking distance of the apartment. It is also close to beautiful hikes in Acadia. The apartment has a nice flat screen TV with a good video library for relaxing evenings or you can sit outside at the fire pit and look at the wonderful stars. All in all a great stay and we hope to be back!

The Rose Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband, mother and I stayed for a week at the Rose Cottage, one of many residences that make up Anna's Quietside Cottages. Upon our arrival we were promptly met by Marc, owner and proprietor. He settled us into the cottage and gave us a tour of the property. The cottage lived up to the name as advertised. Although most of the cottages seemed to be rented the week we were there, it grounds were very quite and peaceful. We even watched deer stroll through the property. The cottage was just as the photos depicted. The sitting room was comfortable. The entry into the cabin was a slight step up and the downstairs bathroom was adapted for elderly use. My mom had no trouble with the walk in shower. There were grab bars in place if needed. This was important to us when traveling with Mom. When I booked with Marc, he had assured me that the first for was very easy to maneuver through and he was right. The cabin has a second floor bedroom which was bright and airy. There was also a small sitting room, balcony and full bathroom, so there was plenty of room for the three of us. The kitchen was well stocked, the appliances on the newer side and Marc provides a gas grill for outdoor cooking. The property also includes a community room where you can borrow just about anything you might need or forgot to pack. There are also information pamphlets for the attractions in the surrounding areas. Marc is also a good source of information for local dining establishments. Overall we had a delightful stay in the Rose Cabin and would gladly vacation there again.

Very nice property and area. Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Owners are excellent in responding to any needs and giving information. We enjoyed our home very much. The upstairs bedroom with the balcony is delightful. We love Southwest as a place to stay. It is our third time in the area, and we always go to the quiet side of the island! Kitchen was well supplied. House was clean.
