Great accommodation in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Lovely accommodation for our family of three. Victoria and Marc provided lots of information and top tips for places to visit: the causeway at sunset was beautiful. The artist studio is very convenient for the restaurants of Southwest Harbour, which we visited a few times although also made good use of the barbeque. The apartment is very clean, bright and well-equipped. We would definitely stay here again.

Welcoming, well-kept and genuine atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

Just returning to default world after a one-week stay in the artist loft with dear friends. Almost hesitant to offer a five-star review for fear the property may not be available due to its popularity. Thank you to our hosts Marc and Victoria for the multitude of tiny details that made this an ideal get-away for all of us. From the careful planning of the studio to the thorough orientation to our last goodbye. The loft is a place of beauty and peace and Southwest Harbor by far the best choice for "where" to stay while visiting Acadia. Thank you!

Artist Loft, Anna's Quietside, Southeast Harbor ME

  • 5 of 5

Our stay (4 women) at the Artist Loft in Anna's Quietside Cottages in Southwest Harbor, ME was PHENOMENAL!!!! The Loft was easy to find, beautifully laid out, and very clean. The Loft was a "home" not just a place; our "Shangri-La" to return to every night after hiking and sightseeing. AND eating! :) The kitchen has everything if you are inclined to cook (we chose to eat out most every meal). The bathrooms have a heating option.....NIIIIIICE!!!!! Because of the many TV options, we were able to listen to awesome music when home. Marc took quite a bit of time Sun morning to explain the "lay of the land" as well as must-see sights, excursions and recommended restaurants not to be missed, many within walking distance. The town of Southwest Harbor is a 5 minute walk with lots of places to eat (Eat-A-Pita Cafe....oh YEAH...don't let the name fool you-it's INCREDIBLE!), a great market (with some organic produce/foods, wine and alcohol, deli and lunch/dinner meals to go), hardware store, gift/art shops, drug store, marina (take the ferry to Great Cranberry Island) and the Common Good Soup Kitchen with amazing popovers-don't miss these! The Acadia National Park (our bucket list item and reason to be in Maine....a MUST experience!!!!!!!), Bar Harbor and beautiful gardens are a short drive away. The causeway is a short 7 minute walk and gorgeous; right over the water with amazing views while the sun is setting, rising or in between. Of the many options to stay in this area, the Artist Loft is a gem and has every convenience; you will be supremely happy to stay there (AND sorry to leave!). And last but definitely not least, it's affordable....surprisingly so! You will be very happy choosing the Artist Loft as your home away from home in the Bar Harbor area. We will stay there again!

Great home base in Southwest Harbor!

  • 5 of 5

The Artist Studio was perfect for our stay. The location is fabulous, a short walk to town and very convenient. Marc knows the area inside and out, and he pointed us towards some great hikes, sites, and restaurants that we wouldn't have otherwise known about. We really appreciated his tips! The apartment is modern and clean and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. We look forward to returning!

Spacious, comfortable, clean and gracious

  • 5 of 5

Four of us (two adult couples) spent a glorious week at the Artist Studio. We knew very little about the area and were delighted to be on the "quiet side" of the busy Bar Harbor/Acadia area, with easy and free bus access right outside the door. Marc and Victoria were gracious hosts, orienting us well to all visitor opportunities as well as providing clear direction on all aspects of the rental. Beds were comfortable and air conditioning a valuable element on a few warm nights. The long entry staircase posed a bit of a challenge to one of our group, but he took his time and did fine. Walking to both the causeway and downtown was very pleasant, with Beal's Lobster Pound and the Cranberry Island Ferry also nearby. We highly recommend this wonderful residence!

Great place to "park" at Acadia

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect venue for our trip to Acadia and MDI. We wanted to stay on the Quietside, but walkability was important to us. We were able to walk into the village of Southwest Harbor for dinner and shopping. The Island Explorer shuttle stop was right across the street from the Artist Studio! Everything in the area was accessible by way of the shuttle. You would not even need a car! We biked to the Seawall and Beal's Lobster! Marc evidently put a lot of though and effort into the design of the studio. We had two adults for part of the week and four adults and a 13 year old for the rest of the week, and we were all comfortable. The kitchen as well equipped, beds comfy, and bathrooms modern. We utilized the fire pit at Anna's Quietside one evening. Everything was just perfect! Marc and Victoria were wonderful hosts! Marc gave us insider tips we never would have learned on our own in one week. We cannot wait to return to Acadia!
