Simply Spectacular

  • 5 of 5

The title says it all, a "charming, 2BR oceanfront cottage with stunning views". 2016 was our first experience with Apple Cottage, and it was simply spectacular. The cottage exceeded all expectations - well appointed, super clean, comfortable, quiet, and the view is probably the best on the East Coast - you can simply sit all day and enjoy the gentle breezes and every changing ocean landscape. A venue and experience that will call you back!

Fantastic Place To Stay with easy access to Acadia

  • 5 of 5

Apple Cottage was wonderful and the perfect place for a family of four to stay. The cottage was immaculate! Views from the deck and property of the Cranberry Isles were excellent. At low tide we enjoyed finding sand dollars right off the property. Owner was responsive, very friendly, and clearly loves Mount Desert Island. She made excellent restaurant and hiking recommendations. Southwest Harbor is a lovely community with nice options for eating-out or picking up necessary supplies. If you stay at Apple Cottage you will be happy that you did.

This is not a cottage! It is a fabulous cottage house, wonderfully furnished right down to a blender!

The view from the deck is great and the sights of the boats moving thru the channel is ever changing. We even had deer wander across the lawn on two occasions. The cottage is very clean, up to date with nothing to do but bring in your groceries. Quiet location only two miles from South West Harbor is a tranquille place for a relaxing vacation. Highly recommended.

Lovely week

  • 5 of 5

We were incredibly impressed with Apple Cottage, from the amazing location and lovely ocean view to the pristine condition of the house. Tucked back in a wooded area, but right near the water, it was quiet and peaceful with easy access to a rocky beach area where my son spent a lot of time happily skipping rocks. The house itself was very well-appointed -- virtually nothing was lacking that we needed for the week -- and nicely furnished. (extremely comfortable, not too crowded with things, and perfect size for a family of four.) Granted, we lucked out with great weather, but would have been happy to hang out longer in the house or on the deck. Moreover, Ann H. was very communicative and helpful throughout the process -- from the time we booked it to the myriad of questions I sent her way about places to hike or things to do. (she always responded quickly, and with good humor.) Her binder of suggested activities, restaurants etc. was a great resource. Southwest Harbor is also just a very nice part of the island, and easily accessible to many lovely walks and restaurants. We cannot wait to come back!
