Convenient & Spacious Cottage

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I were happy with this rental; it was spacious enough for us to spread out if we needed to, even at night when he snored, if you know what I mean : ) There is just one TV (a nice big one), in case this fact is important to someone. The only thing that could be a bother is the street noise outside of the bedroom window. If you are a light sleeper, bring ear plugs or use the fan provided in that room as a 'white noise' machine to drown out the noise of cars going by (not as bad at night).

Tim, the owner, is clearly a guy who is a 'people person' and we enjoyed meeting him and chatting with him. He's truly concerned with how you're enjoying your stay. There is off-street parking with lots of light at night: very safe and secure.

The location in Southwest Harbor was a quieter part of the island with bits and pieces of Acadia National Park sprinkled around it. Most of Acadia is on the other part of the island: Bar Harbor area and Northeast Harbor.

We would definitely rent here again if we get up that way again.

Thanks, Tim!

Cozy and clean

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were pleasantly surprised by the size and amenities of this condo for the price. It is located in a quieter area than Bar Harbor with many hiking trails in Arcadia within a few minutes drive. One short hike is within walking distance that brings you to the summit of Flying Mt with a beautiful view overlooking the Somes Harbor.

The kitchen was well stocked, condo was clean and bright. The ONLY difficulty I had was sleeping with the traffic noise which gets quite loud in the early morning. There was a large fan in the bedroom that we used to provide "white noise", popped in earplugs and that took care of the problem.

Tim is a great host. He offered us a friendly welcome with lots of ideas for things to do. I loved the hiking book for Arcadia National Park that was available for use in the condo. We would definitely stay here again if we come back to the area.

comfortable, bright rental

  • 4 of 5

Tim has a well-maintained property. The rental is clean and comfortable. It is brighter than it appears in the photographs. There is a flight of stairs at the entry up to the spacious apartment. The living room has a comfortable sofa, HDTV, and window AC. There is also a futon in this room. The kitchen is smaller, but has all the necessary cookware & utensils, coffee maker, microwave, etc. The kitchen also has another window AC. The bathroom is clean. The bathroom does have a sloped (angled) ceiling, which might be an issue for people that are over 6 feet in height. (Not an issue for us.) The queen sized bed is comfortable and clean. There are 3 bedroom windows that face the road, which is a bit noisy at night. (This is the main road to Southwest Harbor). If you prefer to keep the windows closed, there is a large fan in the bedroom. It is evident that the rental is well cared for & that the owners strive to make your stay pleasant. Tim was friendly and helpful with suggestions on dining & directions. We enjoyed our stay in SW Harbor and were very comfortable staying at this property.

Cottage 2 was a spacious and comfortable getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We were surprised by how much space Cottage 2 has. We particularly loved the separate living room area for lounging in the evenings before bed. The couch is so comfortable! The place was very clean as well, and the kitchen was well stocked with all the supplies needed for cooking (unfortunately, we didn't have the opportunity to take advantage of all that the kitchen offered). Tim and his wife have really setup a nice place for visitors. I highly recommend for anyone considering a trip to the Bar Harbor/Southwest Harbor area. It's only about a 15 minute drive to Acadia Natiobal Park (maybe 5 min further to downtown Bar Harbor), and Southwest Harbor has plenty of options for food if you don't feel like dealing with the excessive tourist traffic of downtown Bar Harbor. We know where to book if/when we visit again!

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is much larger than the pictures convey and is impeccably clean. Tim and Sian greeted us when we arrived and a bottle of wine greeted us when we went inside. (nice touch!)

Tim had lots of suggestions about where to eat and places to visit. Even though we have been to SW Harbor several times, we never knew about the causeway behind the golf club and its beach. Can't say enough how beautiful the area is, but this is a review for the lodging. Bed was very comfortable and extra pillows were in the closet. Also provided were two folding chairs and a cooler. Books on the bookcase and some by my favorite authors. Puzzles and games were provided in the dining room and a basket of brochures of area attractions. The kitchen was well equipped and the living room was very spacious with a large TV and HDMI cables. Feel like we made a friend and would "visit" them again.

Clean, well maintained property

  • 4 of 5

My husband, 16 mo old daughter and I stayed here for 6 nights. The property was clean, well kept and large enough for the 3 of us. We were a little hesitant to reserve this property because there was no picture of the bathroom. However, we were pleased to find that there was no cause for concern. It is small, but clean, has a standard shower/tub, and good water pressure. Our only complaints about the property were that it was a bit loud at night being right on the main road and the blinds in the bedroom didn't do much to keep out the sun which rose before 5am. For families with crawling infants to young toddlers, note that there is a staircase between the kitchen and living room that goes down to the entrance and no gate to keep out little adventurers.
