My husband and I had a great vacation on MDI, while researching this trip, we decided to stay on the quiet side of the island and settle on this quiet, rustic cottage. To start at the beginning, I would say that the listing and photos were very accurate. The hosts were very quick to respond to us and accommodating with a couple of requests we had. This cottage was private, but not completely secluded (we could see a couple of other houses and activity, as a city girl, this was just what I wanted). The house was nice, the view was pretty, but I feel that the best feature about this house was the location. Again, just secluded enough, but the real win was that it was located immediately north of Southwest Harbor. This meant that we did not need to drive through SW Harbor every time we wanted to head out to explore. This definitely allowed us to spend less time in the car and more time exploring. We also had a lot of restaurant options nearby (within 2-3 miles) and the grocery store was very close. It's a good choice for 2 people.
