Why Sara Vosloo chose Southwest Harbor
We purchased this house in 2001 and have been spending summers here ever since. We cannot imagine a better place to spend the summer. From hiking to boating Mount Desert Island is a place you will want to comeback to time and again. We hope you will enjoy the house and area as much as we have.

Nice place. Easy access. Friendly owners.
Stay was good. House met our needs. Was not able to sit outside due to bugs. Bring citronella candles and yard spray. Other than that good place.
Best family vacation!
This property was perfect for our family of 6! We loved the quiet town and the proximity to amazing hikes! The house was comfortable and had everything we needed! We will be back!
Relaxing Retreat Close to the Action
The house was great. Very relaxing atmosphere, comfortable furnishings, and best of all right in SW Harbor close to shops, restaurants, and great hiking on the western side of Acadia Nat’l Park. Owners were very helpful & attentive, making sure we had everything we needed for a great family vacation. Highly recommend this property for a family of 5-6 that intends to spend most of the time out and about exploring the island, but want a relaxing place to stay in the evenings without spending a fortune, and without driving a long way at the end of the day’s adventures.
Thoroughly enjoyable stay at this beautiful property in lovely quiet spot in SW Harbor
My family and I stayed in for a week at the beginning of October. The property is located in a quiet spot in Southwest Harbor, a few minutes drive from the main street which features some great local shops and restaurants. The property is spacious, clean and had all the amenities set up for a very enjoyable week. We spent the week exploring different areas and hikes that Acadia had to offer and this location was the perfect place to retreat to after a long day spent outdoors as it felt peaceful compared to say the much busier area of Bar Harbor.
You know you've had a great vacation when the journey to the airport feels slightly mournful and you all want to stay for just one extra day!
Spacious well kept house with significant issues to be aware of
House is clean and spacious and well maintained with inviting outside fire circle area. Located conveniently outside Southwest Harbor in a quiet neighborhood. One problem to be aware of is bathroom locations. Pay attention! The upstairs bathroom is not accessible to two bedrooms because you have to walk thru the master bedroom to get to it. Anyone in the two bedrooms other than the master needing a bathroom during the night must go down steep staris to access the second bathroom off the kitchen. In all the bedrooms, the mattresses are extremely hard to the point of being uncomfortable. Also, the bedrooms are sparse--no chairs or luggage racks or any place to put suitcases except on the floor, and no place to sit except the beds. Only the master has a chest of drawers. All you get is a bed and bedside table with reading lamps. Hosts were accessible and responsive when we needed checkin assistance.
Great Acadia Vacation Home
Awesome. Close enough and far enough away from crowds. Plenty of room, very clean and close enough to access parks and Bar Harbor activities. Would recommend for families too. Would rent this home again if returning to area.
Hiking great trails around Long Pond, Echo Lake, Somes Sound or the ocean just minutes down the road. Kayaking and stand up paddling on the ocean or swimming in Echo Lake. Shopping and dinning in the quaint shops and restaurants of Downtown Southwest Harbor.
