Very old cottage

  • 3 of 5

We stayed there for 7 nights.


1. All cooking utensils and linens were provided.

2. Short distance to shopping area.


1. The window behind the sofa was not properly sealed, so the first night, there were over 20 mosquitoes coming from the leak and my baby was bitten 6 times. His arms are still in bad shape now.

2. Because the mosquito problem was so severe, it's not possible to sit outside, despite that we burned the repellent torch on the porch. So don't think of walking around the house as well.

3. The cottage is very old, all the furniture seem more than 50 years old, the beds squeak when lying into, and some part of the floor does the same when stepping on.

4. The sink in the bathroom has hot and cold tap separately, so you got either hot or cold instead of warm water.

5. The curtains in one bedroom don't block light, so you have to get up when sun rises.

To conclude, if the mosquito problem is solved (which is not difficult, we stuffed toilet paper there and no mosquito in the rest of the days), the cottage is a good place to stay, if you like old building.

Eagle's Nest

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very nice, and will easily handle up to four people! The view over the harbor is absolutely amazing! The area is very peaceful and relaxing. Since we were early in the season (June), it was very easy to get from the cabin to Acadia National Park. We could be in the main part of the park within 20 minutes. There was a seal that hung around in the harbor that we watched each evening, and we also saw an eagle fly by the back deck early one morning. We really enjoyed the Southwest Harbor (the quiet peninsula) and the people were very friendly.

Heavenly stay at Eagle Watch

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to stay for a couple - just perfect in every way! Storey and Kandi have everthing you need to feel comfortable and relaxed. The views of Southwest Harbor were fantstic and Acadia and Bar Harbor are close enough that the drive is not a problem But the seclusion and sense of peace once you're at Eagle Watch is a highlight of each day! We didn't want to leave...

Our visit to Eagle Watch could not have been nicer. We enjoyed every minute of our time there whether grilling on the back deck, harbor watching from the front or sitting inside by the fireplace. The cottage is wonderfully rustic and comfy and the view is spectacular. We were both surprised and delighted by the quiet and privacy while also being close to shops, restaurants and activities. We had such a great time and look forward to returning.

Comfort and Beauty

  • 5 of 5

I could not have made a better choice. The view was spectacular. The cabin was simple, rustic, and elegant. It was secluded, but in the middle of things, surrounded by trees, and the sea, but within walking distance of town. It was a sweet stay.
