If you want to get away and explore Acadia National Park, Acadia Cottages are for you! These charming cottages are a short walk from "downtown" Southwest Harbor, which includes cute shops with jewelry and art among other things crafted in Maine as well as a deli and restaurants. The harbor is walking distance and a variety of boating trips are available. The Acadia National Park Loop Road is a short drive away, and Bar Harbor shops and restaurants await you when are ready to take a break from hiking, biking, kayaking and breathtaking scenery! This was my family's first trip to Maine, and we loved coming "home" to our very private cottage #15 after a long day of Acadia adventures. We bought groceries and enjoyed preparing our breakfast in our very clean kitchenette. My husband and I loved the rustic feel of the cottage and the bedroom had a vaulted ceiling with a ceiling fan. Our son liked sleeping on the pullout bed located in the living area. The bathroom was small with a tiny shower stall, but other than that the cottage was wonderful. We stayed for 7 days and did take advantage of using the laundry room; we were pleasantly surprised that detergent was provided, all we needed were a few quarters to operate the washer and dryer and there was no wait! The owners were welcoming complete with a home made cookies filled container left for our arrival, yet our privacy was respected and we never experienced an annoying knock on the door followed by, "housekeeping". Wonderful place, we'd stay there again.
