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!

I took my older Girl Scout Troop for our last trip as a troop and we were so happy that we found Anna's! The Americana cottage was just perfect for us with the two bedrooms upstairs for the girls and mine downstairs. It was clean, neat and very well equipped. We had just about everything we needed in the kitchen and if we didn't, we could walk a short distance to the hospitality suite and borrow things like a griddle or pots and pans as needed. We were also able to borrow a few camp chairs for day trips. The owner, Marc was very helpful in pointing out things to do, how to get there and some of his favorite spots. Walking distance to town was a plus for ice cream at night. We enjoyed a campfire next to the pond and an added bonus was to help ourselves to the vegetable garden! We enjoyed Whale Watching in Bar Harbor, Sea Kayaking thru the company right there in Southwest Harbor, Charlotte Rhodes Garden and Asticou Garden. Jordan Pond was too crowded to park for popovers so we had them at the Asticou Inn and they were awesome! I would not have known we could get them there if it weren't for Marc sharing that info with us when we arrived. We spent a while at Thunder hole and hiked from there to Otter Cliff. Swam at Echo Lake and loved the lobster at Thurston's Lobster Pound in Bass Harbor. I loved this place so much that I am booking several of the units for a large family get together next August. We're coming back for sure!

Cranberry cottage was beautiful and spacious!

  • 5 of 5

The listing description was as advertised. Loved the deck with the screened tent! The property was well maintained and very QUIET! The owner provided excellent service to include taking the time to sit down with us and recommended hikes, restaurants, and attractions. We enjoyed the Perpendicular, Acadia Mountain, Flying Mountain hikes. The Asticou Azalea and Thuya Gardens are a must! I definitely would recommend this property to a friend or relative!

Heaven on Earth.

  • 5 of 5

Mount Desert Island in July and August is as close to heaven as we have found. It is truly a magical place. We have been coming back annually for 17 years. I am almost hesitant to let the cat out of the bag, but Anna's Quietside is such an incredible place to stay - it may be the best value on the island! We have been renting from Marc and Victoria for over ten years and we absolutely love the experience at Anna's! They have properties for any size group and their hospitality is remarkable. From setting up Lobster Boils to a DVD library and wifi and tons of games for the kids, it's a great place to come home to after a vigorous day in the park. In closing, Maine in Summer is like no other place and we'd encourage anyone to stay at Anna's Quietside!

We LOVE Anna's Quietside!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at AQC for the last eight years or so, with groups ranging from 4 to 18 people. It is NEVER a disappointment! They are so invested in guests having a successful visit that you cannot fail to enjoy your stay. Houses are clean, plenty of bedrooms, mattresses are great, and kitchens are well stocked with dishes and utensils, AND there is the Hospitality Suite!

We loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Anna's Quietside Cottages for a week with a family of 48. It was absolutely perfect! The houses were close enough together to spend time with each other, but just far enough for privacy. We stayed in the Cranberry Cottage. It was awesome! The houses are located so close to everything. We walked to the Downtown area every day. I would highly recommend this place to anyone!

A great week in one of Anna's Quietside Cottages!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful stay in one of Anna's Quietside Cottages in June of 2016. We found our cabin clean, spacious, and tastefully decorated. We loved the privacy of each cottage having separation from the others and being surrounded by trees. At the same time, we were close enough to Southwest Harbor for our teenage girls to walk into town on their own.

We found our cottage a great jumping off point for day trips to Acadia and Bar Harbor. We also enjoyed the fabulous sunsets at the nearby Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse, and moonrises over the Atlantic.

A special treat for us was the warm hospitality of the owners. They kindly oriented us to Mount Desert Island and pointed out the best places to eat and trails to hike.

We'd return again in a heartbeat!
