About Melissa and David Mohon

We love the Acadia area and vacation ourselves there every year. One of our favorite things to do in the area is to take the Carriage Rides from Wildwood Stables to Jordan Pond Teahouse.

Melissa and David Mohon purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Melissa and David Mohon chose Southwest Harbor

I was stationed in Maine while in the Navy and fell in love with Acadia National Park and the Mount Desert Island region. I wanted to have a place for my family to vacation in the summer and also to provide a relaxing and comfortable place for other families to enjoy while visiting all the attractions of the Acadia area!

Wonderful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at The Cottage. Both times, my wife commented that she wants to live there. It's the perfect size for the six of us, has great access to The Park, and is fully stocked with toys for the kids. We generally try to visit new places when we travel, but we intended to go back to Harbor Star Cottage: it just feels right.

Great base for MDI

  • 5 of 5

This property was all it was advertised to be. It was very clean, cozy, bright, and very well furnished. The owners replied promptly to all emails and texts we sent and were very helpful in all aspects of our stay. It was great to know we had such a wonderful place to return to after a long day exploring the island.

Much Needed Trip

  • 5 of 5

The four of us had a great time in Acadia and surrounding areas. After an eventful filled day, we came back to a relaxing evening in a quiet, beautiful, well-kept, clean Harbor Star Cottage.

Thanks for being a wonderful place to enjoy!

Great Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Harbor Star Cottage. It was such a comfortable, cozy house. The owners have taken great care to furnish this house with everything you would possibly need (extra baby supplies, extra toiletries, more coffee than anyone could ever drink). Nothing was overlooked.

We had an issue with the fireplace since it hadn't been used yet this season. Between the owners and the care taker, this problem was resolved quickly (in less than an hour).

We didn't want to leave!

Perfect Escape

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time on MDI, but our first stay in this cottage. It was great - clean, beautiful, and has everything you could possibly need. We had one very minor issue when we first arrived that was dealt with immediately. Lovely and comfortable house, helpful owners and caretaker, and great location. Thank you, Melissa and David - we hope to be back!
