We stayed for four nights in Bow Sprit. The room was exceptionally clean and looked out onto the harbor. The bed was very comfortable. The internet was fast and always available. The living area (sofa, chair & coffe table) allowed us to relax at night. The kitchen had all the necessary items for breakast or a meal if you are... More

I stayed in a one bedroom unit of Pier One, which opened to the ocean. This is a place for people who care about detail, care about design and care about their environment. Everything is thought-through, every detail. If you are a collector, like small, perfected spaces, enjoying cooking and sitting on the deck, reading or looking out at the... More

This is my second stay at Topside at Pier One Vacation Rentals. Two years ago I stayed two weeks with two friends and loved it so much that I returned this year with my daughter and granddaughter. It is such a delightful place with amazing hosts Don and Javier who work especially hard to make their guests feel at home.... More

Wonderful cottage on a deck overlooking Southwest Harbor. Beautiful breeze, incredible views, lovely interior. Don, the property owner / manager was friendly and accommodating. Can't wait to go back in a couple of years.

My teenage son and I stayed in the Topside at Pier One. The place had some pros and cons. This is a 2 bedroom unit which was perfect for us. There is a pull-out sofa in the living room so the unit is said to be for 4-6 people but I think that 6 would be VERY crowded. The bedrooms... More

I stayed in one of their units in August 2014 for about 1 week. They are located right on the water on the shores of this working harbor. You are steps away from the sailing school, a lobster pound & a working fishing dock. It's a short walk into Downtown- about 15-20 minutes- very pretty streets & no traffic. Unlike... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Deck House. It was small and cozy. We did not use the kitchen but it seemed adequately equipped for making simple meals. The shower stall was quite small. It was fine for us but may be something to consider if one needs ample shower space. The cottage has two large windows, one facing the... More

Our stay in Harbour Cottage was great! Don and his staff were more than accommodating and the inn was very relaxing. The breakfasts were delicious and the service was relaxed - Don personally came by each table to see how everything was and to help you plan your day - whether it was biking, hiking or just enjoying the beautiful...

What a wonderful property! My hubby and I stayed in the Quata Deck and loved the ambiance inside (cute and cozy) and outside (sunny and peaceful). Many evenings we had happy hour on the deck watching the sunset. We hiked each day, and coming home to Pier One was like one long exhale: sweet and serene.

We just returned from our 6th trip to Maine. What's not to love about Maine?! What's not to love about the "quiet side" of MDI ....And now we have discovered ~ what's not to love about Pier One?! We stayed in Topside while another couple we travel with were in Quata-deck . It was perfect. Their deck was mostly sunny,... More
