This is truly on the quiet side of Mt Desert Island. Although the Inn is on the main street of the village of Southwest Harbor, there was no noise at night.

We spent a week and enjoyed every minute of it. Each breakfeast was sensational! Dora and Daniel are wonderful hosts from making us feel at home and providing us with recommendations on restaurants and hikes. Look forward to returning!
