Lovely, spacious Maine 'cabin' in woods. Quiet getaway, full of fun...fire pit, playground, games, books!
Upon walking into the condo, we were so pleased with the view and continued to have fun watching the harbor from the deck. The hot tub was a welcoming comfort when we returned from long hikes. All accommodations were beautifully appointed, the bedrooms were nice a cool. And finally, the location was perfect - within walking distance to shops and restaurants. We definitely recommend this quiet side of the island.
The boathouse was wonderful. We loved the location of being on a working marina. The boathouse was very clean and the views we amazing. The master bedroom is filled with great light and is really a separate living space. The kitchen was well equipped with the basic necessities for cooking in, which was very nice. We could also watch the sunrise every morning over the mountains. Not like sunrise on Cadillac but it was beautiful. Southwest Harbor is definitely the quiet side which we loved yet there were plenty of great restaurants and shops to wander through after a long day in the park. We loved the a Little Notch bakery and Beals in southwest Harbor & seafood ketch in Bass Harbor . Also very good breakfast at Sips. Everything was amazing. We watched the July 4th fireworks over Southwest Harbor from our deck. We could see fireworks in all directions and never had to fight the crowds. It was amazing. We will definitely stay at the boathouse again if we return to Acadia.
This property is sited at the entrance to an active harbor and has a porch for viewing the traffic on the water that is spectacular. It is not private, part of a family compound, but the proximity to the harbor and the lawns facing the water make it special. We sat 11 people in the dining room for dinners a few times and that too was wonderful. This is an old house, and there are issues with doors that don't quite close, bathtubs that are old fashioned, but the appliances all work well and the kitchen is charming and large enough for more than one cook. We had a wonderful time. There were a few issues, but the owner took care of them promptly. SW harbor is also a gem of a town, charming, enough choices for food and shopping but not crazy like Bar Harbor.
Water's Edge is a beautiful and comfortable house, with a great location and all the amenities you could want! Southwest Harbor provided a relaxing setting, with easy access to Acadia and other harbors on Mt. Desert Island - but without having to deal with the crowds of Bar Harbor. We so enjoyed our stay: particular highlights are the private beach, the porch with its incredible view, the great fireplace we used on one chilly and rainy evening, and the wonderful kitchen with an amazing stove and any appliance or gadget you could want! The available pictures of this property - as lovely as they are - don't do Water's Edge justice. We are already dreaming of the chance to return.
