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."

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!

Super Clean and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

The farmhouse provided the perfect place to rest up after a long day on the trails of Acadia. We had everything we needed to get a jump on enjoying our vacation (the little things like dish soap, tp, linens were all provided!!). Great location, super clean - and comfortable! Gail was a great host and was responsive ...although we never needed anything during our stay because everything was provided and in top shape!

Amazing Farmhouse for stay in Maine

  • 5 of 5

I rented this farmhouse to stay in while my husband and boys camped at Seawall with their Boyscout troop. First, the location in Southwest Harbor was great. I was minutes away from the campsite, within a mile of a grocery store, within walking distance of plenty of charming shops and restaurants. And, everything in Acadia is within easy driving distance, so the location if visiting the park is great. The farmhouse was amazing. It was exceptionally clean, the bathroom with a washer/dryer set up was the size of most bedrooms, the bedroom was big enough to walk around and had a desk to work at with free wi-fi, the living and kitchen area were also very big. Although I did not use the kitchen area, it seemed to have everything anyone would need to fix meals. The owner was readily available by email when I needed to let her know of an arrival and departure change. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone. And, if I ever get back to this area of Maine, I would definitly try to book this rental.
