Great Home

  • 4 of 5

We loved your property. It's a nice home. I appreciated how clean it was when we arrived, spotless! The location is nice, much quieter than being in bar harbor. It's very close to downtown Southwest Harbor with plenty of nice restaurants in the area. Not too far from the carriage trails and other entrances to the park either. We also took a trip to bar harbor, again, not too far way. If we come back we'll be staying at your property again.

Home Away from Home, Comfortable, secure, clean, and easy to navigate to and from for touring.

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed this home, fit excellently for our three couples with one in a wheelchair(little adjustment into and out of the front of the house).Many areas to be together or separate if wanted. Near to tourist sites, easy to navigate to and from. Sarah quickly, efficiently and kindly answered all our questions prior to our arrival. Fresh banana bread awaiting us was delicious! Basket of tourist information helpful and appreciated.

A beautiful sanctuary in Southwest Harbor

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for five days on our honeymoon. The home is soooooo comfortable and beautiful. It was the most restorative vacation that I have ever had, in large part because of the spacious, clean and gorgeous home that Sarah and Paul provided us. Quiet, with a beautiful sunroom and deck framed by pine woods, flowers and birds, this is a small piece of heaven. About a 5 minute drive into downtown, it is conveniently located. Paul and Sarah are consummate professionals and handled all aspects of the transaction efficiently - in fact, we hadn't yet arrived home and they had already refunded our security deposit. Although they apparently live in the carriage house next door, at no time was their presence noted. We had absolute privacy and quiet. We didn't see them at all during our stay, but knew they were accessible if we needed them. The kitchen contained hospitality offerings of fruit, wine, a dessert treat, and detailed instructions on the house and nearby points of interest. It was all so delightful that I cried when I left. I have never written a review on VRBO before, but this place, and the owners, certainly deserve it!

Perfect home for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The home is lovely and a perfect fit for a family - we had 5 adults, a baby, and a dog. The owners thought of everything to make our stay very comfortable. Great location - we loved the town of Southwest Harbor. We had great meals at local restaurants and also cooked a few meals at the rental. Thanks Sarah and Paul for sharing your beautiful home!

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.
