Downeast Done Right
I'm generally not a reviewer but given the great experience we had at this property I'm compelled to spend the time to do so. The home was even better than the pictures conveyed, which is always a pleasant surprise. The homeowners were lovely--friendly and helpful without being the least bit intrusive. The location was ideal for our four adults and three kids; we walked over to Beals every day for lobster and had the convenience of Southwest Harbor and greater MDI at our fingertips, but the house itself felt sequestered in the peace and quiet you're hoping for Downeast. Do yourself a favor and rent this one--just not durning the week we'll be returning, please.
Southwest Harbor Gem
Beautiful, comfortable, well-appointed home tucked away off the beaten path in SW Harbor. Great family getaway location, on the water and close to town. Our gracious hosts Edward and Martie made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay.....thank you! Hope to return!
A spectacular water front home
We have stayed in Maine a half dozen times. Twice now, we've been lucky enough to stay at this home on Somes Sound. We love the location in Southwest Harbor. A short walk from the house are excellent restaurants, unbelievable good ice cream, and the town bike shop. The view from the deck is worthy of a postcard. The house is spacious, clean, comfortable, and well appointed. The gardens surrounding it are beautiful. I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking to stay on the quiet side of Mount Desert Island.
Return Visit to a Slice of Heaven!
This house is truly a favorite of mine. This was an overdue return visit since I kept remembering the view and lovely town and have been wishing to return. And it didn't disappoint!
Every time I walk into the living room, every bit of tension just melts away when I see the wall of windows with that black blue water peeking through the trees. I can only imagine that someone must have planned the grounds perfectly to provide lovely yet natural looking flowers, shrubs, and flora and skillfully placed trees that allow for an incredible view without sacrificing privacy. Just a perfect location since it is only moments to Southwest Harbor yet you feel like you are a million miles from everything. Great star watching at night by the way.
In my previous review, I cited how well stocked the house is, and if anything, I think the house is even better stocked than last time; Tons of kitchen utensils, cookware, dishes, even books and games. It also has good, reliable internet. The owners are as helpful as can be. This place is very versatile and perfect for a family get away since it is kid friendly with lots of chairs for seating at the huge granite kitchen Island or the long harvest style dining table, or great for a romantic getaway or a girls weekend. I do like the fact it is so nice and quiet but yet Bar Harbor is only a short drive away.
Moon Shining on Somes Sound
Our stay at the cottage was more than we could have imagined. The setting was lovely with a full moon shining on the water from the great room window. The cottage was well decorated and it felt like you were at home but on vacation. It had ever thing you need and then some. We loved the fact that we could take a short walk(5 minutes) to get fresh lobster dinners and then browse the downtown Southwest Harbor. Our son and daughter-in-law had date night each night in the window seat. One on his computer and the other reading her book. Just too cute!!! We really liked the fact that we could be in the park in about half an hour and also to Bar Harbor. We were very thankful that we could leave the bustle of Bar Harbor and return to our cozy quiet cottage. So glad we chose not to stay in Bar Harbor but enjoyed the quiet side of the Island. The owners happen to be in town at the same time and offered many suggestions but still gave us our privacy. We enjoyed meeting them. We would and have recommended it to many of our friends. We could not have been any more pleased with our choice in this cottage. One of our better vacations because there was something to do for all our ages.
Charming Home, Great Location!
My wife and I just enjoyed a lovely stay with our baby at this cozy cabin on the water. The house was in great shape, with a fully stocked kitchen, washer & dryer and pleasant furniture and decor. Furthermore, the owners (who spend the summer next door) were gracious and hospitable hosts-- they lent us their walking sticks for hiking around Acadia!
We loved being in quaint Southwest Harbor, away from the touristy bustle of Bar Harbor. The home is steps away from Beal's Lobster Pound and about 15 minutes from "downtown" SH. The back porch looks out (through trees) to gorgeous Somes Sound, and we took advantage of the kayaks provided to paddle around and see some wildlife.
Looking forward to our return trip!
Acadia National Park er her! Flott klatring, fotturer, fotturer, utsikt og naturskjønne stasjoner.
