About The Owner

Building the Fernald Point Carriage House was a labor of love for me. Through out the home, I was able use milled cedar from most all trees that I cleared from the site. Having summered in Southwest Harbor while growning up, I am now so fortunate to be able to call this my year round home. Downeast Maine, and particularly Acadia National Park , is beautiful no matter what the season.

I also own and run the Mckinley Lane Cabin which is new to the market for the summer season of 2014. You can find it at homeaway #941918

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2009

Guestbook comments from the owner

Whether you are looking for a quiet getaway or want an outdoor active week or two with a friend, the Carriage House is where you want to be. It is ideally located smack dab in the middle of where the mountains meet the sea. The Carriage House was only built a few years ago so you can still smell the fresh wood while feeling like you are in a luxury loft cabin. There are even fresh linens in the cedar chest in the living room to enjoy a comfortable sleep on the futon if one bed isn’t enough for your group. I wouldn’t be surprised if it is the nicest place I will have ever lived. I was lucky enough to be there for a whole summer but would go back for a vacation in a heartbeat to get my fix of picturesque living.

Couldn't Ask for Better

  • 5 of 5

Place is spacious for 2, so immaculately clean it looked like it was new this year. It's quiet and comfortable, tastefully decorated like a country home, and it's clear that a great amount of thought, love, and attention to detail was put into it. Would recommend!

The Quiet Side

  • 5 of 5

The carriage house was perfect for us. My wife and I own a business together, and being with nature during our week away was needed and incredible. The weather was a bit cloudy for most of our stay, but in the end that added to the peacefulness of the place. The carriage house was neat and clean, and had all the comforts of home. The location was incredible-located deep in the woods (or so it seemed), but just a short drive from downtown. (By the way, we ate at Sips three time!) The carriage house was also a few short minutes from the entrance to Acadia national park - but the park is essentially all over the island. We would highly recommend, and when we return to Mount Desert Island, this will be our first choice to stay! Thanks to our host for a wonderful place to stay!

A lovely retreat in a lovely place

  • 5 of 5

My sweetheart and I spent four nights here, and loved it. This homey, comfortable garage apartment amid the quiet trees in Southwest Harbor is the perfect spot to rest and recharge in between tackling the charms of Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, and the other attractions of beautiful Mount Desert Island. A very well-thought-out place; it's even stocked with puzzles, games, books, etc., in case of rainy weather. We would gladly return!

Charming Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was our third and longest visit to Mt. Desert Island. We knew we wanted to stay in Southwest Harbor and I was delighted to find the one-bedroom Carriage House. It was the perfect space for two people. Very quiet, comfortable and well appointed. A great place to unwind from the stress of everyday life. The location is within walking distance of "downtown" Southwest Harbor and Flying Mountain trail head. Debbie (owner) was great to work with through the whole rental process and promptly responded to all inquires and questions. We would definitely stay here again!

a charming place to visit Acadia National Prk

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Carriage house. It could not be better. Deborah is always so helpful and the place is exactly like the pictures. It matches the place we were looking for our wedding anniversary - calm, quiet, full of green around and a short distance from the most amazing Acadia National Park places. It is certainly worth to go back soon we have a chance.
