We stayed here for two nights in the Pemaquid Point Suite. The suite is perfect for a family - very nice and comfy beds for 4 persons! The design and decoration of the room - as well as of the rest of the hotel - is just great. We enjoyed the perfect home made breakfast every morning. All in all... More

If you were to look up bed and breakfast in the dictionary, I am sure a picture of this inn would appear. It was beautiful, relaxing and, in peak season, it was so peaceful. Daniel did an amazing job with breakfast and Dora made us feel like we were old friends.

This was our first visit to Acadia! We booked our room not knowing it was on the quiet side of Mt Desert Island. We lucked out! The inn is welcoming, comfortable and charming. Dora and Danielle are great hosts. We felt right at home the minute we met them. The breakfasts are absolutely delicious and we were eager to see... More

Initially thought about staying in Bar Harbor or Northeast Harbor but decided to stay in the quaint seaside village of Southwest Harbor. I made the reservation with Daniel who was full of enthusiasm about the Inn and said we would not be disappointed. Upon arrival Daniel checked us and gave us a tour of the property. People make a difference... More

We spent 2 nights at this B & B while exploring Acadia NP. We slept very well and had 2 wonderful breakfasts. Dora is out front and very helpful with what to see in area. Her restaurant recommendations were spot on. Daniel is in the kitchen both for breakfast and the afternoon snacks. I would highly recommend that you stay... More

We visited The Inn at Southwest last year and have been looking forward to returning ever since. Everything was perfect--Dora and Daniel are perfect hosts/Innkeepers. Daniel's breakfasts are decadent and delicious (you can opt out and have plain fare if you choose--but you won't). Dora worries about every detail and really needn't. The Inn has oodles of charm and is... More

We had met Dora and Daniel in July of 2014 and they gave us a tour of the B&B. Needless to say, we kept their information and did not hesitate to call them when we were going to be in Southwest Harbor again. The Inn is beautiful. The living room is a through back to another time. There was always... More

I really could write a very long review about how perfect this place is but I will try to keep it short and sweet. This place is an absolute gem. It is a bed and breakfast located on the Quietside of Mount Desert Island, a 20 minute drive from busier Bar Harbor. Most of our activities were in Bar Harbor... More

Everything about our stay was perfect. Dora was very welcoming, and the inn is beautiful. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the grounds have plenty of space to relax. Breakfast was delicious. We liked it so much that we got engaged later that day.

Our time spent at The Inn at Southwest was just wonderful! Upon meeting Dora, we instantly felt at home and knew we would be well taken care of. The Inn is beautiful!
