Lovely, old fashioned inn with nicely decorated rooms, immaculately clean on a quiet, restful street. Our host Don was consistently cordial and gracious, suggesting places to go and things to do. The inn serves a full breakfast in their pretty breakfast room and porch. While it's not five star gourmet, it was good and included with the room rate. If... More

My husband and I returned to Acadia for an anniversary weekend, choosing to stay on the quiet side of the island. This inn knows how to make guests feel at home and taken care of at the same time. Delicious homemade breakfasts outside on the shaded front porch started each day. We could walk to dinner downtown or take advantage... More

I love the Harbour Cottage Inn; it's clean and quaint and homey, and the staff is helpful and attentive without being intrusive at all. The food was delicious and it was nice to start each day with something healthy, knowing we'd be eating out our other two meals and may not have that option each time. The grounds are beautiful...

My partner and I got married in Vermont, then spent our honeymoon at the Harbour Cottage Inn in Maine. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we received nothing but friendly, excellent service. Our room was clean, homey, and beautifully decorated, as was the lobby. Each morning we were treated to a wonderful homemade breakfast, which consisted... More

We spend 4 nights at the Harbour Cottage in the Carriage house which was just perfect for our needs. Charming, calm and comfortable. Hospitality of Don and his team, very good breakfast different every morning. Southwest Harbour is a nice village at walking distance with good restaurants. Coming from the busy Bar Harbour village we were just happy to retrieve... More

We traveled to Maine to hike around Acadia National Park and enjoy some lobster, and I'm REALLY GLAD we stayed at the Harbour Cottage. This was my first B&B experience, so I don't have something to compare it to, but I would definitely stay here again! We stayed in the "Yawl," which was a corner room on the 2nd floor... More

We stayed in the Cottage House. Very, Very nice. Cozy and clean. Hospitality was top notch, Don was very helpful in giving us ideas on what to do and see while we where there. Breakfast was fresh and on time. Sitting out in the open air, overlooking the harbour was outstanding. The only bad thing is that we couldn't stay... More

We were made to feel at home as soon as we arrived. The location of the coffee station and wine frig downstairs made it feel extra welcoming. Cozy reading alcoves downstairs, lovely porch for breakfasts and relaxing, and owners and staff that wanted to make sure you had everything you needed were all great. The inn was restored with all...

Previous reviews are spot on. This is a well furnished, clean, and quiet bed and breakfast. Short walk to Beal's Lobster Pound and to several outstanding restaurants in main part of town, approx. 1/2 mile walk or drive and plenty of parking. If you stay here you have to eat at Red Sky, you will not forget it. Breakfast here... More
