Walking distance to village restaurants, the harbor and more ~ great reviews!
Walking distance to the village of Southwest Harbor and it's great restaurants ~ this Maine cape is the way to experience life on the coast. Sitting above a granite wall, this generous, cape is elevated to take in views of Great Harbor. Decorated, with comfort in mind, clean, crisp colors highlight the whole house. From the paved drive and walkway, you enter into a country kitchen to your right and a large dining/lving room with a fireplace to your left.
A downstairs bedroom with 2 twin beds is beside the stairway to the second floor and 2 more bedrooms, one with a queen-sized bed and one with a full. A lush, green lawn surrounds this wonderful cottage and a 5 minute walk will take you to Southwest Harbor proper with it's yummy restaurants, shops and activities.
The Island Explorer picks up at several close stops to Whitney Cape Cottage ~ an excellent place to spend your holiday!
The upper and lower town dock are within walking distance. Echo Lake is only 2 miles away with beach, cliffs and roadside swimming spots.
Causeway Club for golf and tennis is just a mile away.
Many mountains and trails are within a couple of miles of Whitney Cape Cottage.

Lovely, lovely cottage
We’ve stayed at other rentals in Southwest, but this beautiful home was by far the nicest. It’s a sweet home in beautiful condition; clean, spacious and very comfortable. Its walk to town location is convenient; we were able to walk to Southwest’s wonderful restaurants. The location is quite and private making it feel very much like home away from home. We loved staying here and would definitely recommend it to friends and family. What a gem of a rental!
We so appreciate this wonderful review! We try to give the best possible experience for all of our renters and it makes us so happy when we receive comments like this. Southwest Harbor and this house used to be home and has a special place in our hearts ! we are glad that it now has a special place in yours! Thank you for this fabulous review and please come back, again ~
A Super Place to Stay in Southwest Harbor, Maine
We stayed a Whitney Cape cod House I (there is another house beside it called Whitney Cape Cod House II ~ it was occupied when we were there and it didn't affect our stay at all). We had a wonderful time and the weather was beautiful until the last day or so! We love walking to the town to get breakfast at Sips and then we would walk back to the town dock and watch the harbor activity with our 2nd cup of coffee. There were several restaurants to choose from and all good. A couple of days we went to the recreation center, Harbor House, on Herrick Road, and worked out but we mostly hiked and climbed the mountains on the Quiet Side. We did a day trip to Bar Harbor and biked the ocean drive park loop road. We went back and drove up Cadillac on another day and had a picnic at Bar Harbor Sand Beach.
But, mostly we stayed on this side of the island. We loved hiking Ship Harbor, Wonderland( fairly easy hiking) and picnicking at Seawall. We climbed Mansell, Beech, Acadia and Flying Mountains. We loved coming back to this traditional cape cod cottage. When the weather got a little rainy, we read the books we borrowed from the town library beside the fireplace. It was so peaceful and we left Whitney Cape Cod Cottage I, so rested and relaxed. We would definitely recommend this rental.
Very comfortable home, delightful owner, responsive and polite realty company. Just a short walk to a harbor and to town. Very quiet neighborhood with next door neighbor selling fresh produce and homemade bread on the street- super yummy and convenient.
The comments are deeply appreciated. We make every

Located just across from Great Harbor and a very short walk to the village of Southwest Harbor, this traditional cape is has everything you need for a good vacation. The Island Explorer can be picked up close by for hands fre touring of the island. The house has 3 bedrooms/1 bath and a large living/dining are with a fireplace and a well-equipped kitchen. Whitney Cape Cottage is the perfect place to spend your holiday!
