Acadia is spectacularly beautiful, and there is no better place to rest after days of hiking than Don and Javier's Inn. The inn is historic and perfectly maintained. Breakfast was delicious, with special attention to fresh ingredients. We especially enjoyed the vanilla buckwheat pancakes with fresh fruit, served by a friendly staff. Every day Don gave us great tips for hiking- complete with maps, where to eat—he was right on with all recommendations! This is where you want to stay if you want to relax, enjoy the view,have completely gracious hosts and a breakfast that will get you started.

Room Tip: Top floor suite provided beautiful room with light and comfy bed for my husband and I and another twin room for our young son and nana. Accomodations were perfect.

Our family of 5 spent 3 nights in the Southwester at the Harbour Cottage Inn this summer. The apartment was spacious, clean, and quiet. The breakfasts were outstanding-both healthy and delicious! Southwest Harbor is an ideal "home base" for exploration of Mount Desert Island. It is not overrun with tourists but is close to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. Don is a knowledgeable and gracious host and will direct you to both the highlights and hidden treasures of the island. Overall, a fantastic experience!

My husband and I spent a wonderful week in this Inn. Excellent location on the quiet side of the peninsula. Rooms - clean and tastefully done. Breakfast was superb, hosts gracious and helpful as we were trying to explore the area.

We loved our stay at the B & B. Our room was neat & very quiet. The staff was attentive & available. The food preparation was top notch. Don & Javier were great hosts. Our questions were answered & suggestions were made for hikes, restaurants, ferry etc. We appreciated the availability of a mini - fridge & wine cooler in the common area. We would highly recommend a stay here. The village of Southwest Harbor was lovely & restaurants & shops were within walking distance of the B & B.

This is the second year in a row my wife and I have stayed at the Harbour Cottage Inn. It is a wonderful Inn and quintessential Maine B&B. Don does a great job. The inn is clean, the living room full of books on Maine and hikes around Acadia National Park, the rooms inviting. We stayed in the Captains nook and it included a little sitting room plus a second single bed. The breakfasts are creative and filling. Plus you can choose whether to sit inside or outside on the veranda. Its is well located and in close proximity to the town of Southwest Harbor as well as to the famous Beal's Lobster pound. I would highly recommend the Harbour Cottage Inn.
