Beautiful home in serene setting.

This. Is a beautiful home in a perfect setting. It is set in a serene wooded area. The owner has gone to great lengths to decorate the house with great taste and to provide all of the comforts of home for the renter.

Perfect Cottage for Two

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week in Southwest Harbor and had a wonderful time. Staying on the quiet side of the island is a great way to go. It isn't far from any of Acadia's attractions and there are some wonderful trails right nearby. The Artist's Retreat was perfectly clean. We have rented other cottages before, but never one as well set up or as clean as this one. If we visit again, there is no doubt we will try to book this spot again.

By far one of our best VRBO experiences

  • 5 of 5

The property is absolutely perfect and the owners have spared no expense in making it very much like your own home. Everything you need and more, and if it's not there they will get it.

They suggested activities and dinning establishments that were excellent. Great location for all island activities. We would love a return visit.

Great little cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was perfect. The place is nestled back in the woods a little ways, so it was nice and private. Everything looks as if it was recently updated, and there are a ton of little details that let you know the owners take pride in having people stay there. We'll definitely try and stay here again if we're ever back in the area.

We'll be back again!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot adequately express how wonderful our stay was at this beautiful property. The carriage house is so thoughtfully and thoroughly appointed, not only in amenities(every creature comfort has been thought of!) but also in the gorgeous, cozy decor. We come to Acadia to spend our time in the outdoors, but the carriage house was a splendid, serene and very inviting retreat at the end of a long day of hiking/biking.

We have been coming to Acadia for a number of years now, but this is our first stay at the Artist's Retreat, and we will look no further when we book our future stays in SW Harbor. The owners Cyd and Ken are such gracious and generous hosts, and doing business with them was a joy(prompt email replies and excellent communication). We love staying on the quiet side of the island, so the location of the property was perfect for us(an excellent "jumping-off" point from the park and all of its trails).

We had a terrific experience staying here, and we recommend it highly. Many thanks again, Cyd and Ken!
