Artist Studio on Main Street, in The Heart Of Acadia National Park

The best place to stay in all of Southwest Harbor

  • 5 of 5

The artist studio is the best place we've stayed in SouthWest harbor. It was perfect for a family of four. The unit is new and one can immediately see the quality and detail of construction and decorating that the owners put into it. From the in floor radiant heat (great for a chilly Maine spring), to the cool Londonesque telephone booth that holds the high end washer/dryer it's obvious the care the owners put into this place. The location is perfect for a short stroll to the shops and restaurants of Southwest harbor, hikes and sightseeing. Then of course you only have a short drive to Acadia sites and Bar Harbor. The kitchen is a pleasure to cook in, the large dining table seats 4 or more comfortably, plenty of books and movies for the kids and adults are handy, bathrooms are beautiful and bedrooms are spacious with plenty of closet space. We highly recommend the Artist Studio and will definitely be coming back there to stay.

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!
