Quaint and cozy
The Bird's Nest is a cute and cozy place to stay during your visit to MDI. The location is nice for Southwest Harbor, but a bit of a distance to Acadia and Bar Harbor. The apartment has everything you need and Susan is very friendly and responsive. Please be aware that it isn't a suitable place for larger people or those with physical limitations. The bathroom is very tiny and there are 2 flights of exterior stairs. The Wi-Fi access is great and the view is spectaular!
Very clean but very very small.
Good for one person.
Quietside of Acadia NP
Bird's Nest is an appropriate name for this cozy and clean A-frame type apartment. It is good for 2 people that enjoy each other's company and was a great location for home base from which to explore Acadia NP. Andy and Susan were pleasant and responsive. We saw deer, turkey and even a pileated woodpecker from the deck and pictures of the harbor view are accurate. Significantly less hustle & bustle in SW Harbor than nearby BH, but town has everything you'd need. Recommend Beal's Lobster Pier and sunset at the Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse.
Perfect couples retreat
We could not have picked a better place to stay to celebrate our anniversary. The apartment is perfect for two people and was fully stocked with everything we needed for the week. We really enjoyed sitting on the porch in the mornings and evenings watching the boats come in and out of the harbor. The property is minutes from the center of Southwest Harbor which has many nice restaurants and is the starting point for Maine State Sea Kayaking which I highly recommend. It’s about 20 minutes to the main part of Acadia and 30 to Bar Harbor. Our hosts were amazing and even brought us a freshly steamed lobster on our last night which was the perfect was to end our week in maine.
Beautiful spot with a great view
We had a great experience here, the apartment had everything we needed and was a great location to Acadia and Bar Harbor. The deck was a great place to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. Caution to any tall people...this may not be the spot for you, the bathroom was kind of cramped. Also the bed was not very comfortable but didn’t ruin our stay. Very pretty wooded walk down to Southwest Harbor and lots of good little spots to eat and get coffee. Overall great stay.
We loved the quiet!
Wonderful little place. We enjoyed sitting outside and hearing nothing but the breeze and birds singing. The location is great. Quick drive to town. Pretty views. The space is small but for 1 or 2 people it is fine. Susan and Andy were very responsive when we had a question or needed anything.
