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

The Pier One units are nestled in between docks at Southwest Harbor on the water. The set up is sweet. Each unit has a private gate and walkway leading to the entry. Fences and landscaping make each entry very private. All look out into the harbour with great sunsets and is especially beautiful at high tide. You can watch the... More

Two friends and I spent two glorious weeks at Topside Cottage during the last week of August and first week of September. We are so grateful to have found such a lovely, comfortable home away from home. The owners, Don and Xavier, have created a magical place with their eye for detail. The walls of the cottage are covered with... More

We stayed in our favorite unit, the Topsider. The view of the harbor is superb. With lobster boats coming and going there is always something to see. Be sure to bring your binoculars. The deck is nestled among evergreen boughs, perfect for the added touch of privacy. Comfy furniture whispers Nap Attack at the end of a perfect sail or... More

We recently spent a terrific week at this cozy cottage. It was wonderful to wake up and have coffee out on the deck, watching the working harbor in motion. The cottage is fully equipped with whatever you need. We enjoyed watching the lobstermen begin their day and the sound of the sea birds swooping down. The sunsets were wonderful and... More

My sister and I spent 4 nights at the Quata-Deck, and we couldn't have asked for more perfect accommodation! It's right on the water, and felt so secluded and special - - a lovely base from which to explore the rest of MDI. And, it was a great place to come 'home' to after a days' worth of exploring. The...
