About Marc Chalfoun

I love recommending activities within the area, especially to do with hiking. It is a personal passion of mine.

My wife, Victoria loves recommending local restaurants, so if you are a foodie hit her up for recommendations.

We have two little boys and understand traveling with young ones can be complex. We can supply a pack n play if needed.

And our Hospitality Suite is a great place to grab books and toys for your little ones to borrow!

Marc Chalfoun purchased this house in 2005

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!

For a family that is constantly on the go, this vacation found us with some much needed relaxation and down time. We knew upon entering that we were staying in a safe, clean environment that exudes peaceful. With our time at Anne's, we rediscovered some of the things that made us a family and found out that we really needed this.

We won't hesitate to book again, and the only thing we would change is to book extra days!!!! Thank-you Marc and Victoria, you guys are top shelf and have an an amazing gift to offer your patrons!!!

The way life should be!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved our stay at Anna's Quiteside Carriage House! It was well positioned in the beautiful Maine woods, but also a quick walk to town and the ocean. Marc gave us great hiking tips and we used the beautiful patio and grill every night. Marc and Victoria provided impeccable customer service and we plan on coming back next summer!

The perfect stay in Southwest Harbor. Charming, clean, convenient.

  • 5 of 5

This property was just about perfect. The cottages all have their own individual and unique looks, and the one we stayed in was absolutely charming. Marc greets guests upon arrival and gives you all of the locals tips about where to eat, what hikes to do, etc. There is a fire pit on the property, and a vegetable garden where you can pick vegetables for your salad that night. The cottages are walking distance to the shops and restaurants in town, and just a few minutes from some of the best hikes in Acadia National Park. My husband and I hoped for the perfect Maine trip and we certainly got it thanks to Ana's Quietside cottages and Marc's hospitality.

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!!
