Stayed in Fuk Sol unit for a week in late May,2012. Wonderful location, unit right on the water. Kitchen exceptionally well equiped. Easy walk in to town to some great resturants
Hosts Don and Javier were very gracious and anxious to meet every need.

We stayed here a week in early July. Brought our boat up as well and docked it at Great Harbor Marina (they are awesome folks too!). Our unit, the Quata-Deck, was very well equipped and we even put some things we brought (like a mini-Cuisinart) back in the truck. Had a little glitch with an expansion of the deck of the unit above us while we where there but the owner Dan handled it very well. The view, the location, and the great ambience of the unit were just great. Walking distance to downtown for those so inclined. Dined at Red Sky and it was over the top. If you are a foodie you need to go to Fiore downtown Bar Harbor for the most incredible oils and vinegars (sounds weird, but just go!)

It is self-catering so don't expect room service or maid service (which we are perfectly happy with).

We had hoped to be able to enjoy the afternoon sun from our deck but it was shaded by trees until too late. Many of the units do enjoy sunny decks but not the Quata Deck. The accommodation was rather smaller than I expected from the photographs and we had difficulty stowing our cases and provisions. The kitchenette is mainly taken up by a large range and fridge but again, nowhere to put food that you don't want to store in a fridge and very little worktop to prepare meals. The bedroom was particularly cramped. The bathroom floor was sticky when we arrived and when I ran a cloth over it I discovered that it was also very dirty; rather off-putting.
Nevertheless SW Harbor is delightful and there are plenty of good places to eat.

We always appreciate candid feedback from our guests at Pier One and this feedback is no exception. The Quata-Deck is indeed situated in a garden setting with shade trees and a nice brick garden patio right outside a set of sliding glass doors. In addition just a few steps from the patio is a second space comprised of a wooden deck in a sunny spot with great water views. In my opinion this unit offers the best of what a quiet shade garden offers in terms of privacy and also a sunny view from the deck on the water. With a direct western exposure the sunsets are great! The kitchen is well equipped but not necessarily set up for extensive cooking. There is a full size stove and refrigerator and ample storage and the prep area is indeed tight but perfect for a simple meal and for breakfast. If you are looking to do a lot of cooking perhaps our unit called The Topside would be a better choice. I am myself disturbed by the thought that the bathroom floor was sticky. We do have a great cleaning staff who has worked for us for years and the only thing I can think of was that perhaps the soap was not rinsed from the floor well enough and left a residue. Stepping on it from outside may have added the dirt. Whatever the reason this is unacceptable and will not happen again as long as I own this place. Thanks again to these guests for sharing their perspective. It offers us an opportunity to improve and to also help others in choosing a unit at Pier One that may be more to their liking. Thanks for listening!

For the last two summers, we have spent one week at this picturesque establishment. It is a top notch location, that I have, and will continue to reccomend to all of my friends and family! If you are going to be in the area, do your self a great service and stay here, it is truly wonderful!

We stayed at Pier One for our 10th anniversary last weekend in the Fok-Sol. It's a unique property right on the water very close to the center of Southwest Harbor (a 15-minute walk, we timed it). If you like very fresh lobster and seafood, Pier One is literally right next door to Beal's Lobster Pound.

The Fok-Sol is cozy and quaint. Lots of original beams, rustic paneling, antiques for decorations - very "shabby chic." But it has all of the modern amenities: updated bathroom; well outfitted kitchen; built-in hairdryer (!). The deck outside the kitchen is right on the water, and at high tide the water line is feet from the bedroom window - very cool. If you like ultra-modern and luxurious, this place is probably not for you. But if you don't mind authentic slanted floors, rustic antique-y decor, and being right close by a working fishing pier, you'll love it!

We walked to Southwest Harbor for dinner a couple of times. I would highly recommend Sips and Cafe 2 (a tip: make a reservation at Cafe 2 for dinner if you don't want to eat early; they fill up quickly and don't have many tables). Sips is very casual but elegant at the same time, and you can buy 2-oz "sips" of wine to try different ones. The meals at both restaurants were delicious!

Overall, I would highly recommend Pier One. We can't wait to go back.
