Ratings and Reviews

Family vacation
by Christine and Jerry N. on Jul 09, 2019

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.


Mt. Desert Island's second largest village, Southwest Harbor, features a charming Main Street with an appealing assortment of shops and restaurants. The neighboring village of Manset, which is along the southern shore of the harbor, tends to be rural in nature but features a number of excellent restaurants and boatyards, including Hinckley Yacht Yard and Morris Yachts, both of which boast an international reputation. If Bar Harbor is the 'gateway' to Acadia, Southwest Harbor is the gateway to Acadia's westside trails and attractions, including Seawall, Ship's Harbor, and Echo Lake, all between five and eight minutes from the village center.
