Wonderful home, quiet and peaceful setting.

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of six that enjoyed our stay at this beautiful, spacious home. The sunroom is a lovely, bright and cozy place to watch the birds in the backyard. The kitchen has everything you need to make meals. The towels and linens were soft and good quality. Really a wonderful getaway. I highly recommend this home.

Very comfortable house in a quiet location

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful, quiet location just minutes away from the shore of Southwest Harbor and about 20 minute drive from Bar Harbor. The house has everything for a comfortable stay. There is a large back yard where many different birds like to visit and feed from a variety of bird feeders.

Wonderful home in Southwest Harbor, Acadia

  • 5 of 5

We (2 couples) loved this spacious, comfortable home in Southwest Harbor and would stay there again in a heartbeat. Southwest Harbor is on the quiet side of Mount Desert Island and was the perfect base for our five day stay. The house is exactly as pictured, with everything you need, including some very thoughtful extras (loved the muffins! the wine! the Halloween candy! the fruit!) The kitchen is outfitted remarkably well for a rental, the beds are very comfortable, each of the three bedrooms has its own bath, and there is even Netflix available. The owners are on site but not intrusive in the least (in fact, we never even saw them in 5 days) and were very responsive and pleasant to deal with by email, phone, text. Their suggestions for places to eat and things to do are spot on. We have stayed in SWH before and can attest to the excellent food at The Rogue Cafe, Red Sky, and Thurston's. Really, a lovely place. Thanks, Sarah and Paul, for sharing your home.

Sarah and Paul, my friends and I had a wonderful time staying at your home. Your house was large, clean, well furnished and very nice. If we ever return to Acadia National Park we will certainly check your home's availability.

Thank you for everything.

Wonderful loaction to visit Acadia

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful, well maintained and has every amenity you will need. Beautiful backyard to sit back, gave a cup of coffee and bird watch. House is close to Southwest Harbor and to all of the great access points for hiking in Acadia. Nice, quiet secluded location. Owners are extremely responsive to all requests and could not have been nicer. Highly, highly, recommend this house.
