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!

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!

Veranda House ~ Anna's Quietside Cottages

  • 5 of 5

I decided with my growing family that I would try something different. We love to travel but do not want to stay in a hotel or eat out every meal. We like to hike, bike and explore the sites and come back to something homey. Well, the Veranda at Anna's Quietside Cottages allowed is to do just that... We loved the space & practicality it allowed our family to have. I was so excited when I walked in and realized exactly what I'd rented. The photos didn't do it justice and it was so clean! I even commented to my family on how good the linens smelled.

I could not have been more pleased with our family getaway.

So so pleased with where we stayed!

Thank you Marc and Victoria
