Log Cabin in the Best Town on Mt. Desert Island

Southwest Harbor log cabin

3 bedrooms / 2 bathrooms / sleeps 8

“This is very clean, well-accomodated, and in a great location!” Our family just returned from a week in this great cabin. We wanted to be very close to acadia National Park, but not in a busy area. The location was perfect for this. The cabin is within walking distance of a small town with great restaurants and stores, and a very short drive (some 5 minutes, some 10 minutes, some 15 minutes) to all the sights of the national park. And when you return to the cabin you experience its quiet and natural setting at its best. It was rejuvenating to be there. The owners have obviously taken a lot of time and effort to make their home user-friendly. It comes equipped with everything you need for cooking and relaxing. Everything is clean and cared for, and the entire cabin has a cozy yet spacious feel to it. Very highly recommended!

Cedarledge Cottage at Seaside Cottages, waterfront, Acadia - "quiet" side of MDI
Perfect!

My mother and I recently rented this darling 2-bedroom cottage for our girls' trip to Mount Desert Island, Maine. It was exactly what we were looking for! Quiet, semi-private, on a peaceful, secluded granite ledge overlooking gorgeous water. Very comfortable, fantastic views, and well-appointed on the inside (it had everything we needed, including a spacious bathroom and all the kitchen gear we could desire). We loved the brief walk down the path to the beach and spent hours enjoying the water and the view while exploring the shore or sitting on the granite ledge. (We saw seals and a sea otter!) Kathy was very responsive to any questions or concerns that we had (which were minimal/normal). Cedarledge Cottage was also a great center of operations for us on the quiet side of the island, away from tourist bustle, while we explored the surrounding areas during the day -- a quick and easy drive to the best spots in acadia National Park, including things like Cadillac Mountain and Schoodic Peninsula. And our favorite lobster pound, Thurston's, less than 10 minutes away. All in all, we loved this cottage and look forward to returning. Thank you, Kathy and Jay!see more
Log Cabin in the Best Town on Mt. Desert Island
Comfortable home in a peaceful location

This was the first time our family visited Maine and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The cabin is located in a lovely, private, quiet area. When we inquired about the availability of the cabin the owners, Mike and Dee, responded in a timely fashion. They were kind and considerate. This is evident in the details and care they have taken with their home. The kitchen was so well equipped, we could try our hand at everything from baking popovers to cooking a lobster dinner. The proximity to Echo Lake and the short drive to the hiking trails made the cabin's location all the more convenient. Our kids loved the rope hammock on the deck and we all loved walking to Little Notch bakery in the morning for fresh baked goods and wild blueberry pie! The owners also had a large portfolio filled with recommendations for area restaurants and places to visit. This was really helpful for getting to know the area. We hope to stay here again very soon.see more
Pauls Cottage @ Seaside Cottages, Mt Desert Acadia
Perfect Getaway!

We stayed at this cottage for one glorious week in October. Found it on the internet and it exceeded our expectation. Kathy is very personable and easy to work with. The cottage is very well maintained/clean and very well stocked. It is very comfortable and cozy. The proximity to sights and necessities is perfect. It is refreshing to go home to the "quiet side" of the island after a day of sightseeing/.hiking and to be close to that home. The pictures are a very good representation of what you get, we were fortunate to have sun everyday and a full moon by night. Highly recommended!see more
Anna's Quietside Cottage
Fantastic Family Vacation

Our family of 10 celebrated 3 birthdays and our 50th wedding anniversary here from July 3 to July 11, 2015. We could not have found a better place. We rented the "Pavillion" which was perfect for our group. It was clean, well decorated, comfortable beds. and the kitchen was stocked with all the dishware, silverware, pots and pans, and everything needed if we had wanted to cook "in" all the time. ( we chose to eat out except for breakfasts). The "Pavillion" is the largest of a number of units on a pretty complex with a nice pond, fire pits, good landscaping, parking, washer/dryer, etc and ideally located in short walking distance to the shops, market, and restaurants and the best ice cream of Southwest Harbor. It is very quiet and the owners parents ( delightful) live in one of the units on the property. The owner, Marc Chalfoun was extremely cordial and helpful in recommending activities and restaurants for our special occasions. He also responded immediately with extra towels we requested one time and he allowed us to check in a day ahead of our reserved week which was a huge advantage for us. We felt the rate was very reasonable considering the size of the unit, the 4th of July week at the peak of their tourist season, closeness to Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park and activities that entertained 6 adults and 4 grand children from 3 to 13. WE WOULD ALWAYS STAY HERE IF VISITING THIS BEAUTIFUL AREA OF MAINE. Chuck Raches, Bozeman, MTsee more
Seaside Cottage, 4 BRs, Private Beach, Great Views
Comfortable, relaxing and even better than the internet pictures. Location to die for.

Hi Joy, We have now returned home and I wanted to thank you for letting us stay in your fantastic holiday home. The location is just perfect and I couldn't wait to wake in the morning to see the view from the bedroom window. The house itself is so well planned and appointed with everything to make a holiday trouble free and relaxing. Our family reunion was doubly memorable because of the amazing surroundings and property. Acadia is certainly a stunning destination and we enjoyed it during a quiet time which suited us perfectly. I really did not want to leave and would really have liked to extend our trip for a lot longer. Thank you. Kind regards Julietsee more
