A beautiful sanctuary in Southwest Harbor

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for five days on our honeymoon. The home is soooooo comfortable and beautiful. It was the most restorative vacation that I have ever had, in large part because of the spacious, clean and gorgeous home that Sarah and Paul provided us. Quiet, with a beautiful sunroom and deck framed by pine woods, flowers and birds, this is a small piece of heaven. About a 5 minute drive into downtown, it is conveniently located. Paul and Sarah are consummate professionals and handled all aspects of the transaction efficiently - in fact, we hadn't yet arrived home and they had already refunded our security deposit. Although they apparently live in the carriage house next door, at no time was their presence noted. We had absolute privacy and quiet. We didn't see them at all during our stay, but knew they were accessible if we needed them. The kitchen contained hospitality offerings of fruit, wine, a dessert treat, and detailed instructions on the house and nearby points of interest. It was all so delightful that I cried when I left. I have never written a review on VRBO before, but this place, and the owners, certainly deserve it!

Perfect home for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The home is lovely and a perfect fit for a family - we had 5 adults, a baby, and a dog. The owners thought of everything to make our stay very comfortable. Great location - we loved the town of Southwest Harbor. We had great meals at local restaurants and also cooked a few meals at the rental. Thanks Sarah and Paul for sharing your beautiful home!

Wonderful home, quiet and peaceful setting.

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of six that enjoyed our stay at this beautiful, spacious home. The sunroom is a lovely, bright and cozy place to watch the birds in the backyard. The kitchen has everything you need to make meals. The towels and linens were soft and good quality. Really a wonderful getaway. I highly recommend this home.

Very comfortable house in a quiet location

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful, quiet location just minutes away from the shore of Southwest Harbor and about 20 minute drive from Bar Harbor. The house has everything for a comfortable stay. There is a large back yard where many different birds like to visit and feed from a variety of bird feeders.

Wonderful home in Southwest Harbor, Acadia

  • 5 of 5

We (2 couples) loved this spacious, comfortable home in Southwest Harbor and would stay there again in a heartbeat. Southwest Harbor is on the quiet side of Mount Desert Island and was the perfect base for our five day stay. The house is exactly as pictured, with everything you need, including some very thoughtful extras (loved the muffins! the wine! the Halloween candy! the fruit!) The kitchen is outfitted remarkably well for a rental, the beds are very comfortable, each of the three bedrooms has its own bath, and there is even Netflix available. The owners are on site but not intrusive in the least (in fact, we never even saw them in 5 days) and were very responsive and pleasant to deal with by email, phone, text. Their suggestions for places to eat and things to do are spot on. We have stayed in SWH before and can attest to the excellent food at The Rogue Cafe, Red Sky, and Thurston's. Really, a lovely place. Thanks, Sarah and Paul, for sharing your home.
