    Piece of Heaven

    The Carriage house was even better than we anticipated! We walked in to fresh flowers and a nice welcome packet.It is immaculately clean, cozy, and oozes charm. The setting is quiet-surrounded by majestic pines. Location is fabulous-easy to access all hiking and amenities without the crowds.Ken and Cyd were phenomenal with communication. We hired Ken (super reasonable fee) to give us a private three hour “get to know the island” tour. FABULOUS!! Little did we know he does tours for bus groups😁Best way to start our stay. He is very knowledgeable and down home welcoming!Can’t wait to come back-hiking is outstanding!

      Peaceful Retreat in the Perfect Location

      My wife and I decided to rent this property as part of our honeymoon near Acadia National Park. Cyd and Ken were a pleasure to deal with and offered a beautiful place for us to enjoy a relaxing getaway. Communication was swift and easy. The property was immaculate. They even wrote us a guide to everything in the area and provided written descriptions of nearby hikes and attractions. Also, Southwest Harbor is the best place on Mt. Desert Island to really experience the local area without all of the tourists in Bar Harbor. We wish we had more time to stay and enjoy the area and we will be returning in the future to keep hiking the park.

        Cottage in the Woods

        The property was very nice and cozy. The location was great, just a mile or so from Southwest Harbor restaurants, and within walking distance of a grocery store. Being on the quiet side was very nice, as the Bar Harbor side was pretty hectic during the day. Very nice place, and the owners were very friendly and helpful. Absolutely would stay here again.

          Quiet Stay on the Quiet Side

          We loved our stay in the Carriage House. Beautiful place and lovely hosts!

            Beautiful place

            We really enjoyed staying her. It was beautifully decorated and the kitchen was better equipped than my own. The owners clearly put lots of attention to detail. We did one hike right from the cottage. Would only clarify that the owner’s house is also on the property (with some distance between) so I would say it’s not quite as secluded as I imagined from the description). I would definitely return there. I thought being on the quiet side of the Island was a big plus. Lots of beautiful trails without having to fight the crowds. We did go to the other, more crowded side, but we made a point of getting there early- a must if going to any of the trails near Sand Beach or Jordan Pond. Would have taken the Park bus if we had gone any later.
