Located in the heart of Southwest Harbor this inn has it all! Gorgeous house with beautifully decorated rooms, walking distance from all the main restaurants and bars, and the best innkeepers you will ever meet! Right from the start Dora and Dan made us feel right at home. We absolutely loved our stay and look forward to returning in the... More

We tried to decide whether to stay in Bar Harbor or Southwest Harbor. So glad we chose the Inn at Southwest! Daniel and Dora were so gracious and accomodating. It is a lovely inn with fantastic porches, common rooms in the house, and a great fire pit! Our room was clean, comfortable and charming. The food was terrific. Can't wait... More

A last minute change in plans led us to stay at the Inn at Southwest and we are so glad we did. Lovely house, friendly inn keepers and a great breakfast that had my son asking for seconds (which was served right up)!!! Will definitely return again!

While vacationing in Southwest Harbor, my partner and I were out for cocktails one afternoon. In conversation with another couple at the bar, we discovered they are the innkeepers at the Inn at Southwest. We were talking about good breakfast places in town, because our accomodations did not provide breakfast. Dora and Dan immediately invited us to try out the... More

My wife is mad that there's no option to rate it 4.5. Pros: Beautiful Porch, Decor, Breakfast, Staff Cons: Old house room sizes. Wonderful place - converted old house with charm galore. The bathrooms are a bit small. The rooms are just big enough. The staff is great - very helpful and friendly. They promote an atmosphere of meeting other... More

First time staying at a B&B. The experience was absolutely amazing. Daniel and Dora made us feel like this was our home. They are warm, friendly, gracious and made us feel like family while still maintaining a professionalism. The room was clean, bright and so quaintly furnished. Food was amazing. I was a little hesitant about staying at a B&B... More

In town on business, my wife & I were pleasantly surprised with a quaint and friendly B&B in Southwest Harbor, ME. Being one of only a few experiences staying at a B&B, I was instantly caught up with the warm and sincere greeting we received from innkeeper Dora. The charming Victorian Inn's rooms were more than satisfying, each one unique... More

You will be warmly greeted by Daniel and Dora. From the moment you arrive it is apparent that they are genuinely interested in providing you with a first rate experience. The rooms are fresh, airy and spotless. The wrap around porch is a soothing spot for an afternoon nap. Sweet homemade treats are always available. Need advise as to where... More

A last minute opportunity to get away for the weekend led us here, where we were most graciously accommodated and very warmly welcomed by Daniel and Dora. I can't say enough about this wonderful Inn and the keepers that run it. Daniel's breakfasts were very creative and we loved everything he served. So good!! I can't wait to get back,... More
