This studio offers a lively experience in Southwest Harbor. It's right across the street from the harbor and makes a great home base for sailing, kayaking, lobstering, and boat tours. Lighthouse enthusiasts will find it a particularly appealing location for sightseeing and photography.

Once inside, guests are greeted by a small living and kitchenette area overlooking to harbor beyond. It's perfectly equipped for preparing snacks and lunches for days on the water or appetizers before heading out for dinner.

Here, you'll also find a small sitting area and the cable TV. The cozy king-size bed nearby awaits to provide a restful sleep every night for up to two guests. Crack open a window and relax to the sound of waves crashing softly in the harbor.

Acadia National Park is just about twelve miles away, and Bar Harbor awaits about 14 miles away. The whole of Mt. Desert Island is characterized by miles of natural splendor along its rocky coastline and is worth exploring on a scenic drive or hike.

If you're looking to escape to refreshing sea breezes and small town charm, this Southwest Harbor is the perfect getaway for two. Book today and start counting down the days until vacation!

Photos online make it seem the Inn is located in downtown Southwest Harbor. You do get good views of the Harbor, but you'll need to drive a bit to get into town. Also, the furnishings are outdated and the walls are incredibly thin! We could hear every word from our neighbors next door and had to sleep with our tv on low to drown out noise. It was also concerning to me that the doors that joined the room were only accessible from the rooms next door. I worried the entire stay that people staying in the other rooms could access our room while we were gone. Luckily we only used the room to sleep in since we spent the majority of our time exploring Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park but I would not stay here again.
Manager Response:
We apologize if the thin walls were difficult for this guest to adjust to. The owners are aware the furnishings are outdated at this time. Thanks!

The room was terrible and not what is described on website. They refer to having a "kitchen" which is simply a mini frig and microwave. Refer to Harbor did not open. Wifi is terrible. TV is smaller than a laptop computer, rooms are cramped, water takes about 20 minutes to get warm, and overall pretty shabby. We booked 2 nights and left after the first night to a hotel in the town of Southwest Harbor.
The only positive experience was the mattress which appeared to be new.
