About
Description
The Inn at Southwest, one of the most unique properties on Mount Desert Island, is nestled in the charming coastal village of Southwest Harbor. The quintessential New England Bed and Breakfast, the Inn More at Southwest is a stately 19th century Victorian home, located on the coast of Maine and set amongst lush and vibrant gardens. Surrounded by Acadia National Park, and located just a stone’s throw from Bar Harbor, the Inn is a perfect place to relax and indulge oneself. The Inn offers seven charming guest rooms, each one decorated in its own distinctive and eclectic style. Stay with us and enjoy a sumptuous two course breakfast on our classic wrap-around porch, or spend your evenings lounging around our fire pit enjoying one or two of our afternoon treats. Come and enjoy the wonders of Acadia National Park and enjoy the charm of the quaint coastal village of Southwest Harbor. We look forward to seeing you soon! Less
