The settlement of Southwest Harbor is situated on an island just off the coast of Maine, in the far north-east of the United States. People take their holidays in Southwest Harbor as they enjoy the opportunity of getting down to nature and staying in self catering accommodation that enables them to come and go as they please and still be on the doorstep to great places to visit. Maine is a truly delightful part of the US and if you have the chance of taking your holidays in Southwest Harbor, grab it and you will definitely not regret it!

Things to Do on Holiday in Southwest Harbor, USA

Many people love to stay in self catering houses in Southwest Harbor as they are located in a very idyllic part of the United States that enables them to recharge their batteries and escape the rat race for a time. However, for when you can bear to prise yourself away from your private self catering property, there are plenty of activities to get your teeth into. You may want to enjoy long nature walks through the remote and scenic countryside. You could even choose to enjoy a cycle ride through the area and mountain biking is possible for the more adventurous. Other activities to bear in mind include fly fishing, horse riding, summer swimming, kayaking and canoeing and ornithology.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Southwest Harbor, USA

There are dozens of small Maine towns close-by on your holidays in Southwest Harbor and by visiting some of these, you will get a good idea of the quiet and great way of life that exists in this part of America. Lobster dishes are very popular in Maine and this is your chance to visit a local restaurant to sample this local delicacy for yourself. For when you fancy travelling a little farther, the city of Bangor lies just less than a two hour drive to the north of Southwest Harbor. The city has a predominately 19th century skyline, which is unusual in itself for any American settlement and much of this spectacular architecture has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is not a massive city, but it is definitely extremely charming and well worth a day’s visit.

Weather in Southwest Harbor, USA

The weather on your holidays in Southwest Harbor will be akin to a continental climate. However, the fact that you will be on the southern coast of an island in the Atlantic Ocean may well spare you from the worst of Maine’s weather. This will be an important factor for the winter months especially when temperatures may be a few degrees above the mainland; yet are still often below freezing, with snow very common. The summers are an entirely different world here, with temperatures regularly hitting the low-twenties degrees Celsius or more.

Travel to Southwest Harbor, USA

Bangor International Airport (BGR) will prove to be extremely convenient for your holidays in Southwest Harbor. First of all, you will need to book flights from the UK to New York airports (Newark (EWR) or (JFK). You can then fly with Delta Connections or US Airways Express to Bangor.

Perfect Maine Vacation

5 of 5
We have a new standard in vacation rentals. We don't use numbers or stars. Our top ranking will now be called "Marty's Place" after our weeklong stay in August 2009. This home on the quiet side of Mt. Desert Island came as advertised. It was the perfect spot for early morning wanderings through the woods and along the shore of Bass Harbor and environs. We spent successive evenings in efforts to create the perfect s'mores at the fireplace out on the deck. There we were serenaded by bullfrogs in the pond that lies between the house and the beach. We watched the full moon rose through the trees. "Marty's Place" is also a great base from which to visit Acadia National Park for hiking, bicycling, kayaking, and swimming; Southwest Harbor, Southeast Harbor, Bar Harbor and the other communities of the island. "Marty's Place" is part of the village of Bernard with the village of Bass Harbor close at hand. A great little library is a 5-minute walk from the house with antiques, local crafts, art galleries, lobster fishing docks also a short walk away. There are many, many eateries on the Quiet Side but we often neglected them in favor of building family meals in the kitchen and on the grill and eating on the deck or, if there was a little rain, in the comfortable dining room. Our recommendation? Next time it just might be two weeks at "Marty's Place."
