About Marilynn Wittenberg
We have owned this cottage and the main house next to it for 28 years. Occasionally we rent out our 3 bedroom house upon request. We have traveled a great deal, but still find this to be one of the most beautiful areas to come back to again and again.
Marilynn Wittenberg purchased this House in 1991

Nice cottage on the quiet west side
Very pleasant - washer/dryer a big plus! Enjoyed hiking around the "Quiet" side of Acadia.
Thank you for your review !
You certainly did cover hiking on the Quiet Side!
Week in SouthWest Harbor
We had a wonderful week staying in this cottage. It is a simple, inviting, comfortable, quiet, well-equipped property. We met the owner and found her to be a lovely person with a sincere interest in great being on the 'quiet side' of MDI. You can walk to many stores, restaurants and other sites. Bar Harbor and the Acadia Park Look are only about a 25 min. drive.
Thank you such a lovely review from such a lovely couple!
Hope to see you again!
Feeling at home in Southwest Harbor
Our family enjoyed our week at the cottage. Marilynn is a perfect hostess and her cottage fit all our needs. Southwest Harbor is a perfect getaway. Great restaurants and the location is ideal. Would recommend to any small family looking to escape for awhile.
Your family was a delight!
You made the most of everyday:
Rain or shine!’Hope to see you again 🤗
Marilynn was a lovely hostess. The cottage was just enough to accommodate our needs & perfectly located close to the center of town.
Your family was a delight!
You made the most of every minute!
Even Sunrise on Cadillac Mt. The Morning you left, but only after doing all the linens and leaving the cottage so meticulous!
Thank you for all your efforts!
This property had everything our family of three wanted for our vacation on the quiet side - the location was great for walks into Southwest Harbor for anything we needed/wanted. The space was clean and comfortable and quiet. Gary and Marilynn were available to answer questions about the area (ask them - they know lots!) but also left us alone to do our own thing. Definitely read through the binder in the cottage - there are activities and places listed there we would not have found on our own or in any guide book. This was a great place to stay for exploring MDI and we would stay here again if we are ever back in the area.
Thank you for your lovely review and kind words. You were fun, energetic guests, and we certainly hope to. See you again.
Great location in heart of Southwest Harbor
This is an ideal location to discover the beauty of Acadia. On 'the quiet side' in Southwest Harbor, which is the quintessential Maine town. Walking distance to all and the free bus stops right in front of carriage house. The unit is well equipped and comfortable. Only 'ding' is that the primary picture in the listing is not accurate; leaves impression that you are looking out on harbor. This is not a water view unit. Trees have grown in and you are looking across street at houses - no water in site. If you are fine walking down to harbor then all is good. Southwest Harbor is fabulous and unit quite comfortable.
So happy you enjoyed the cottage, the charm of Southwest Harbor, and the beauty of Acadia. Your thinking the cottage was directly on the harbor had to be very disappointing . I am so sorry you did not read the description, house rules, or view photos that depict the cottage exactly as it is. However, This was shown to you upon your arrival. Your statement: “no -water-in-site” is troubling. The view of the harbor and stunning gardens is exactly as shown. However, you also brought a pet not informing us and disregarding our pet policy. To ensure that you and future owners from whom you rent have a positive experience , it would be prudent to be completely informed about the property before proceeding.
The cottage is in an ideal location. Sitting on the front deck you have a beautiful view of gardens and a peek of the Southwest Harbor. This is a lovely harbor including private luxury yachts, sailboats, kayaks, and lobster and shrimp boats. It is a very diverse harbor, but also very quiet.
You can walk just blocks and be in the heart of all the village offers:
Fine dining, lobster pounds with waterfront dining, charming boutiques, Sawyers Market, wine and cheese specialty shop, playground, library, churches town dock etc.
