The best breakfasts in Maine! Lovely setting, great rooms full of character. Very good location for all you want to do in Mount Desert Island, and southwest harbour has some great restaurants and bars, more peaceful and authentic, and less touristy than Bar Harbour.

We were looking for a quiet place away from the cruise ships, buses and crowds of Bar Harbour, and this was it. Yes, it can take 20 minutes plus by car to reach certain spots in Acadia from this locale, but for what we sought it was just fine. If you are in town for just a couple of nights,... More

The cottage is very nice, very well kept and the people are friendly. But they are not much with you as normally i experienced in other b&b. It is clean and the rooms are nice, only a bit small. The b&b is located in southwest harbor and it is ok if you want to stay away from the typical tourist... More

We have been to Mount Dessert Island several times before, but only for very brief times and in the Bar Harbor area. We decided to spend most of a week in the area and try the "other side" of the island. We really enjoyed our time staying here. Don is a very nice host and interacts well with guests. We... More

We spent 3 nights at Harbour Cottage Inn and were primarily in the area for Acadia Park. So glad we didn't choose to stay in Bar Harbor. We spent part of 1 day there for the whale watching excursion..not our kind of town at all. Tour buses everywhere, 2 cruise ships docked in the harbor, sidewalks and roads crowded. But... More

We spent three relaxing, well cared for nights at the Harbour Cottage Inn and very highly recommend it. Consider this inn as an alternative to staying at Bar Harbor if you want a beautiful environment with peace and quiet. We did drive through Bar Harbor and it was a crowded, touristy mess. We had the Dory room which is a... More

Lovely Inn with comfortable rooms and attentive staff. Don and Javier have a warm and inviting place that feels homey and charming. Breakfast was yummy, staff accommodating and the porch where I sat for breakfast just the right spot to view the surroundings. The few nights I spent were perfect for the work I had to get done and a... More

We have been staying with Don and Javier for all six years we have been vacationing in Maine. Started with three days and now spend 7 days at Harbour Cottage Inn. Love the Downeaster, having breakfast ( very healthy )each morning on the porch or just setting on the porch each evening relaxing after biking around Acadia National Park. Our... More

We spent one week here and enjoyed it so much. Our room was quite comfortable with a king size bed. Breakfast was delicious and the coffee was excellent. The best part is that Don is so knowledgeable about restaurants, what are the best hikes for our needs and other suggestions. He is very sweet and personable. We at definitely happy... More
