Clean, modern flat built over a rustic garage with view of SW Harbor. Nice for family or group that needs 4 bedrooms.

We booked this home in the office season at a great discount for my family of 3. The house obviously can accommodate more than that. I rented a much bigger house than what we needed because of the view and the discounted off season price.
We prepared 1-2 meals per day in this house and the kitchen was very user friendly and well stocked with pots, pans, mugs, utensils, etc. We only used two of the beds, but found them very comfortable. The layout of the house also has the master bedroom and master bath attached and a separate bathroom for the other bedrooms. Everyone could have the privacy that they would like. The common areas were very warm and welcoming. Part of the couch does not have a back, so you can turn around and watch the harbor in comfort when indoors. We would sit and drink coffee in the mornings and just watch the happenings in the harbor. The house is also located close enough to fun things that you can get to them easily, but there is not much traffic directly near the house and there is still a feeling of privacy.
And again, the view is incredible!!

The location and the space is great! Management of the booking, cleanliness, ease of check-in & check-out was excellent.
I took off 1 star for the following 2 things:
1. The apartment is on top of a barn-like building. There is one huge opening that gives a vibe of an abandoned building (which obviously it is not). This gave us an uneasy feeling and took away from the first impression. Suggestion for owners - put a barn door to close up that opening. Also, shutters on the lower building windows would help with making a much better impression.
2. Beds gave off some musty old smell. I assume they are old (or/and the furniture behind it is old). Definitely change the beds. The smell takes away from the impression of the apartment that has been renovated to look clean and new. They should be changed.

Beautiful view, close to Acadia, fully stocked kitchen and bathrooms.

This home was perfect for my family (including kids) and parents. The home is spacious with private and comfortable bedrooms, modern kitchen and bathrooms, a beautiful deck and the most amazing views. For us, being in Southwest Harbor was a nice reprieve from the crowds in Bar Harbor and ANP. There is a rocky beach access at the end of the driveway that we walked to every morning and evening, some great restaurants (Peter Trout's Tavern and The Upper Deck), and an easy drive to Seawall, Bass Harbor Lighthouse, Wonderwall and other attractions. We absolutely loved our stay and will be back again!

Our whole family of 6 adults stayed very comfortably in this lovely home. The view is breathtaking! The front of the house is all windows and it looks straight out to the harbor. We couldn’t get enough of the view. Stunning! The home is new, modern and the bathrooms are very nice. The deck is perfect for mornings on the deck with coffee and prayer. We loved loved our stay!
