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!

Best place on all of Mount Desert Island!!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed at Anna's Quietside Cottages four different times in different houses with groups ranging from one family to three families and each time was unique and amazing. I plan to come back year after year with friends and family.

The whole property is beautiful and each house is special in its own way. It's clean and quiet yet close enough to town to walk in for good bread, wine and cheese!

Marc and Victoria Chalfoun (along with Marc's parents Annette and Cesar) are lovely hosts. Every request was promptly met and our stays have been truly awesome.

I pray that I'm fortunate enough to be able to share more of my summers with loved ones vacationing at Anna's. I strongly recommend it for anyone looking to visit Acadia and Mount Desert Island.

It's a Keeper!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time in this clean, beautiful home! It had everything we needed including location. The house itself was the perfect balance of homey/rustic and but still modern. We instantly felt comfortable and ready to begin our vacation. Marc was generous and available should we need him but also not overly present. We will definitely come back to continue the memories!

Absolutely fantastic, beautiful place and people!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in the Pavilion was fantastic! Each and every one of us had a great, enjoyable and relaxing stay at Anna's. The Pavilion is beautiful, well maintained and plenty big enough for all of us (15 people). There was always a bathroom open and always a place to relax either on the topside deck, lower screened in porch, master deck, living room, etc. We adults didn't even know the kids were around at times it was so quiet and spacious.

Upon arrival we were greeted by Mark (property manager) and his parents who are absolutely great genuine people. They showed us around the property and told us pretty much everything we needed to know. Throughout the week, when we did have a question, Mark would respond to our questions very quickly. During our stay we wanted to cook our own lobster (of course, you have to your first trip to Maine), and Mark was kind enough to set up all the equipment at our place to cook the lobster and stayed to show us how to cook it! You don't get this service at too many places, I promise you that!

Anna's is within walking distance to downtown Southwest Harbor, which include many fine restaurants/bars, ice cream shop, and other

shops of your choice. We traveled a lot to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor which is only about 20 mins away. It was nice to stay at Anna's away from all the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor, yet we were only 20 mins away. I would highly recommend staying in Anna's Quietside Cottages and i'm sure my family will be going back soon!!

Great Visit to Rose and Carriage Cottages

  • 5 of 5

Both Rose and Carriage cottages were fairly new and very clean and well kept. Marc and his team were very attentive at check and also availabe to help at any time. Also, once we were settled in they also respected our privacy and let us enjoy Acadia. We appreciated the value and qulaity of our stay.

Wonderful vacation spot for large family

  • 5 of 5

The Carriage House at Anna's Quietside Cottages worked so well for our family of 7 staying on Mount Desert Island. We each had our own bed and there were 2 full baths. The cottage was clean and well-equipped and the location is SPECTACULAR! We could easily walk into the delightful town of Southwest Harbor for meals and shopping, and we were just a short (5-minute) drive from fantastic hiking spots on the quiet side of the island. We would recommend Anna's Quietside Cottages to anyone looking for a beautiful Maine vacation.

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!
