Recently spent several nights in the 'Southwester'. The Inn is charming and SW Harbor is a peaceful retreat from the crowded Bar Harbor scene (though staying in Bar Harbor prior to the 4th of July is delightful!) We day-tripped from here and found all of our destinations, such as Northeast Harbor, Jordan Pond and Bass Harbor, to be just a... More

We are so happy to hear that this guest enjoyed their stay. We strive to get it right 100% of the time. I just wish they had told us about the French Door being non-operational during their stay. It has not been sealed shut its just that sometime with the humidity, being near the ocean, the wood swells and makes... More

To start with, I am so glad that I had read an article in the Chicago Tribune regarding Bar Harbor and Southwest Harbor. If you are looking for a more peaceful quiet area, definitely stay in Southwest Harbor. Bar Harbor was much more congested and touristy. This B&B was very beautiful and the owners were very helpful. They gave us... More

We stayed in the Sloop room, which we found to be cramped compared to other bed and breakfasts. The room was advertised on the website as having 'a view to the harbor'. We couldn't see any water, much less the harbor at the time we stayed (Sept. 16 and 17). Maybe if all the leaves were off the tree, one... More

Just had a great weekend during leaf peeping season in Maine with my husband and two old friends. Found this B and B online and it was beautiful. We had a great welcome, the rooms were lovely and nothing was too much trouble for these wonderful owners and their staff. This is a great center to go off from every... More

My husband and I spent 3 nights at this beautiful B&B last year. We loved it so much we returned this year for 4 nights! We stayed in the Carriage House both times and really enjoyed how comfy and quaint it was. The Inn is located in walking distance to the town for some wonderful dining experiences. Each morning we...

My mother and I stayed at Harbour Cottage prior to the July 4th weekend. It was an exceptional and well run establishment with great amenities, first rate service and excellent breakfasts! The B&B was away from the bustle of the downtown area but you weren't that far away as to be inconvenienced. You were also within 5 to 20 minutes... More

excellent B&B, great location, the Carriage House is fabulous for a private getaway, could not have been nicer all around. Fabulous breakfasts and the owners have great knowledge of the local area that they can share with you. Pleasant walk into 'downtown' Southwest Harbor for dinner.

This is an exceptionally high class B&B with great attention to detail without being intrusive. The decor is very in keeping with the lovely old house. The highlight is the breakfast..a delicious healthy option (but not too healthy!!!!) served at the table. We walked up into the town to eat at night and there are plenty of choices available. We...

I quite liked the room with a very comfortable king sized bed and a glimpse of the harbour from one of the rooms. What I didn't like is that it was too far away from the action and attraction of Bar Harbor. I also hated the breakfast. It was a sickeningly sweet blueberry stuffed French toast with terrible tasting sausage... More

Let me start out by thanking this guest for their positive feedback regarding our property, décor, guest room and comfortable king size bed. It’s nice to know what we do right and it is also helpful to hear opinions that differ from the vast majority of our guests. I am truly sorry to hear that there were aspects of the... More

Two of us stayed at the Harbour Cottage for a 3 night weekend....what a treat. Very conveniently located within walking distance to town, amazing restaurants, etc. We were in two rooms due to a scheduling snafu on our end. both were delightful - bright, well appointed, and very quiet. The house is well constructed, without a lot of noise through... More
