About Louise Soucy

Our family home is right next door. We are year-round residents of Southwest Harbor. Our children attend the local schools and we are deeply involved in many aspects of our community.

Louise Soucy purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Louise Soucy chose Bar Harbor and Mount Desert Island

Easy access to all of MDI from the cottage. Bar Harbor is a 15 minute drive, the summit of Cadillac Mountain is 13 miles, and the pleasure of the quiet village of Southwest Harbor is a few minutes' walk away.

Clean, Bright and Convenient!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cottage! We had vacationed in Maine three years earlier and fell in love with Southwest Harbor so we made it a point to find a house in the area this time around. The cottage is clean and bright! It's super convenient to Southwest Harbor. There is a sidewalk across the street from the cottage that takes you all the way into town--less than a half mile walk. You can also catch the Island Hopper bus right there to take you to Mount Dessert Island's attractions. The owners are very friendly but definitely respect your privacy. They recommended we take a walk on the nearby causeway and it was one of our favorite activities of the trip. The house isn't fancy, but I don't think you can beat the price and we appreciated all the thought the owners had put into making the cottage a great getaway (for ex. there was lots of storage space for our things, including a shed to store our bikes). We highly recommend the cottage!

What a vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at 186 Main St., in Southwest Harbor Maine was a week to remember. The cottage has a beautiful setting and a very functional floor plan as well, and is supplied with ample amenities. There are many nearby options for a daily walk, including a golf course with a shoreline border. The cottage includes a deck with a large picnic table as well as a grill. We found both Louise and Jim to be very helpful familiarizing us with the area, as well as available to help with any of our questions.

A Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely cottage was perfect! Love the wooden floors, big windows and cozy atmosphere. This cottage is well taken care of and it shows. We had a great week hiking all over the island and always looked forward to coming back to our home away from home. Thank you Louise and Jim!

We already miss beautiful Mount Desert Island.

Highly recommended.

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful stay. The cottage is very well taken care of and the owners were very attentive and hospitable. We were even able to bring our dog who had a great time with us in Acadia. It was a great location for exploring Acadia or just walking downtown Southwest harbor for fresh baked bread, popovers, or pie.

Thank you for the great stay.

fantastic base for a winter escape

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful winter get-away to MDI and the Acadia region in February, 2016. This lovely cottage is warm, well-appointed and quite comfortable. Clearly, Louise and Jim have put thought and care into the home. It has a great kitchen and is a modern facility. We loved our visit and plan on returning! It made a great home base to explore Acadia in winter. Our hosts, Louise and Jim, couldn't have been more accommodating. The weather even cooperated nicely, dropping more than a foot of snow on us just in time to enable our cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. The cottage was plowed as clean as a whistle bright and early the next morning! Southwest harbor and Bar Harbor do have wonderful restaurants that remain open all winter, if one wants a change of pace from cooking your own. The park is beautiful in winter!

Owner's Response: Thank you! Our cottage is available year-round. The winter is quiet - very different from the hustle and bustle of the summer!
