      Best Location on the Island!

      We loved the secluded and wooded lot of this little house. There is a lovely fire pit (we brought wood and there was already some there on the porch), a table on the porch, and another table by the fire pit. It worked well for us that we enjoy and even prefer being outside because there isn't much space inside. The kitchen table only seats two. If you don't need fancy and plan to be out seeing the island and doing all the amazing things on MDI, this is a great option. We loved being on 'the quiet side' and Hall Quarry is central to everything! It is only a few minutes away from Common Good Soup Kitchen which was our favorite find -- a popover paradise with a mission tucked just off the main road.

      5/5 Excellent

        Great stay at Eagles Nest

        We had a great week at Eagles Nest. The weather was perfect, the location was great, just 10 minutes from Southwest Harbor. The bedrooms as well as the living room had TVs, not that we used them, in the evening we enjoyed time outside around the fire ring. It's a quiet neighborhood, the only visitors we had were deer. Our last day, before leaving, a deer came very close to the house, and minutes latter was joined by her fawn, all while our daughter recorded it on her cell phone. I would highly recommend this house to anyone that enjoys nature, and a quiet environment.

        5/5 Excellent

          Charming and Private

          The cottage is located on a secluded piece of land, yet the owner's home is only a short walk away. Its location in Southwest Harbor is perfect for access to town as well as Acadia. The furniture was comfortable, kitchen well stocked, and general ambiance very relaxing and understated. I would most definitely recommend it to friends and would love to return.

          5/5 Excellent

            Great location with everything we needed!

            Cute cabin that was perfect for our family of four! Saw deer almost daily and used the fire pit a few nights. Easy drive into Southwest Harbor and not too far to get to Bar Harbor. The kids enjoyed swimming in Echo Lake which is right down the street.

            5/5 Excellent

              nice, convenient

              Nice and cozy place. Good for couple or couple with two kids.
