3 Bedrooms, Sleeps 5
Southwest Harbor, Mount Desert Island, Maine
Overlooking the ocean with room to stretch out on the lawn and on her decks, "The Cape Cod House" elicits relaxation right away. Plus, being so close to Southwest Harbor's shops, restaurants, galleries, all within walking distance, makes the location of this cottage all the more desirable. Couple this with The Cape Cod House's sister, "The Bungalow", for added guest room. Also, Western Way Condos are next door. Come for beautiful views of the harbor! The Island Explorer will stop at the end of your street, as well, for easy transport all over Mount Desert Island. This house also has ocean beach access across the road.

Had a great week in Southwest Harbor at the Cape Cod House. Stayed here with our children before they headed off to college. It was our first time visiting Maine and this was the perfect spot to explore Acadia National Park. At first our teenagers were disappointed that the home didn't have WiFi, and they were also out of range for cell service . We spent our days hiking the national park trails, swimming at Echo Lake, and enjoying lobster . My husband favored sitting on the outdoor deck and enjoying the view of Southwest Harbor. We walked into town in the evening for ice cream and gathered around the TV to enjoy the Olympics. Great family trip. The "quietside" of MDI was definitely the right place for us.

This house was better than expected. I traveled with my father, fiance, his friend, and our two-year-old daughter. The view is amazing and the pictures do not do it justice. There was plenty of room for us, as the upstairs loft area is basically it's own apartment with multiple sitting areas, a small kitchen, and bathroom. The house was clean and well stocked with kitchenware. While Bar Harbor is wonderful and draws the tourist, I ended up preferring the stay in South West Harbor, 20 minutes away. It was nice to be able to enjoy the peace away from the crowds when we were done doing the tourist thing. Southwest Harbor also has its own small town with boutiques (more authentic feeling than the cookie cutter gift shops in Bar Harbor, IMHO), galleries, markets and restaurants. There are many nearby trails around the area to hike and explore Acadia National Park. There is also a free shuttle that runs all along Mount Desert Island throughout the day and, as it runs right in front...
