Felt like home

  • 5 of 5

The Artist Studio was fantastic, we would definitely stay again. This was our first trip to Maine and Marc and Victoria were a wealth of information (maps, restaurants, points of interest). We could easily walk to town and some of the best hiking trails in Acadia National Park are less than 10 minutes away.

Great place to stay close to town Recommend!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week here and had a great relaxing vacation. You can walk into town to the many restaurants and shops. Also the free busses have a stop in town that will take you to Bar Harbor where you can get busses to all the great spots in Acadia and around MDI. Marc was great with info on what there is to do around the area. The house has everything you need if you like to cook or if you just bring your food home. We Would definitely go back!!

Review of Artist Studio Southwest Harbor ME

  • 5 of 5

Marc left no stone unturned. Very clean property, spacious well appointed. He left a notebook with very helpful tips on what to do in the surrounding area. He was extremely accommodating and was always available to help with anything we needed. Well done Marc !!

Perfect space in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

Marc and Victoria were the best host's with a warm welcome and overview of the Studio. The Studio itself was abundantly stocked, beautifully maintained, comfortable beds, and fantastic location. We were able to walk to the village for meals, ice cream, and shopping. We were a short drive to Acadia's hiking trails, carriage roads for biking, and across the street from the kayak center to schedule a tour. The "quiet side" of Acadia was a perfect location for us and the Artist Studio provided the perfect respite for our vacation. Thank you Marc and Victoria!

Beautiful 2 BR on the quiet side of MDI

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Artist Studio, and we plan for a third next year! Clean and meticulously maintained, lovely details throughout the home, private patio with grill and flowers. Marc and Victoria have consistently gone above and beyond as hosts, and dealt promptly with any issue or concern.

We loved being within walking distance of SO many things.... dining, shopping, the Causeway bridge (a hidden gem of SW Harbor!). In close distance are a wide variety of beautiful hikes. Oh, and the washer and dryer in the Studio? Sealed the deal for our family with active kids. :)

We had a fantastic stay at the Artist Studio. Communications with the owners before and during the stay were great - they provided great guidance on dining and area activities. The studio itself was wonderful, spacious and of high quality. We especially appreciated the beautiful bathrooms with high end fixtures, the comfortable furniture, nice linens and the fun decor. The owner has put a lot of his energy and creativity in providing a rental property that is comfortable and fun. And Acadia National Park was a beautiful place to visit and we liked staying in the Quietside community of Southwest Harbor. We will definitely return to the area and to the Artist Studio.

Why Marc Chalfoun chose Southwest Harbor

You can walk right into town in 5 minutes.

This is a new construction, not an old build. It is on town water and sewer.

It has AC.

It is a contemporary apartment with an uncluttered luxurious feel.
