Guestbook comments from the manager

"We are glad we decided to stay in Southwest Harbor. The place is within walking distance of the main street and had easy access to food, galleries and the town library. I would recommend Southwest Harbor to anyone who wants a layback place to stay. The layout of the cottage made great use of the place. The property was clean and just like the photos (actually the owner was in the process of making some upgrades in terms of decorations and landscaping). We would stay here again."

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

A facility that has everything for a comfortable stay. Location is perfect for hiking and relaxing. Beware there is no air-conditioning so visiting in summer could be a bit toasty. Enjoy your stay.

Comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

Easy to find in Southwest Harbor, easy walking distance to town so we found it to be a great location. No views to speak of but we had deer in our yard every morning which was fun. The place itself was perfect for the two of us, nice living room area and a full size kitchen which was well stocked with cooking utensils etc. The bed was comfortable (the headboard could be tightened a bit) and the large bathroom were perfect. There is also a washer/dryer combo which was nice, There is a deck out front which we only used a little because of the business out front coming and going so much but it was nice in the evenings. Out back there is a grill and picnic table for use. Would recommend and hope to return.

Great location, close to SW village, quiet farm house

  • 4 of 5

This place is just as advertised and the pictures are just what you will find. It was clean and a short walk to Sips great for breakfast and the ferry to Cranberry Isle. The only negative was the bed, it was hard, the couch was more comfortable.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

The Farmhouse is a clean, quiet, and spacious cottage, located in a convenient location for exploring Acadia. Gail, the property manager, was very helpful and easy to deal with throughout the rental. We would definitely stay here again.

Comfortable cottage for couple or family with a baby

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our one year old. I was a bit surprised to see there wasn't a door to the bedroom but it was fine.

We kept our son in his pack and play in the living room at night and it went well. The bathroom was very spacious and I was so thankful to have a washer and dryer on this trip!

We brought everything we needed, even laundry detergent but it was so nice to see that they left laundry detergent, dryer sheets, soap, shampoo, etc.

The whole cottage was very clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped with what we needed.

My husband is a bit of a handyman and was "bothered" by two things: the door handle was a little loose for the outside door and the bedframe was loose as well. The bed made a lot of noise every time we moved even an inch which was challenging not to wake a little one. This wouldn't keep me from renting the place though.

We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again if in the area or recommend it to anyone visiting this area as a couple or a family with a baby.

Nice Location near Acadia, but on 'the quietside'

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the farmhouse. It was easy to find, clean and well-supplied, and situated just a short drive from Acadia and Bar Harbor. Gail was a great hostess. We'd recommend the farmhouse!
