Great location and wonderful service

4.2 on October 21, 2014

Stayed in the harbour suite with our daughter and loved everything- the most comfortable bed of our three week trip, nice spacious bathroom, great breakfast and we loved the village of southwest harbour. Would definitely recommend to friends.


Stay at Southwest Harbor

3.4 on October 19, 2014

The B&B is a lovely and well-kept place that we have enjoyed during our three-day stay. Don, one of the owners, is friendly and helpful. However, I am not sure if I were to return, probably not. Southwest Harbor is pretty quiet, ideal if you were looking for absolute serenity. We wish to stroll around the main street of a little town after dinner, hence Bar Harbor would have been the better option, also offering a wider selection of B&Bs. Hence I would stay there next time. The room was nice and the mattress very comfortable. The pictures are a true reflection of what you get. I found the room very small though, too small, as we neither had space (other than on the bed) to open up our two large suitcases, nor was there any storage, other than a small closet.


Lovely Stay

4.8 on October 18, 2014

This was a lovely place to stay. We were so pleased to be a little bit away from the hustle and bustle of Bar Habor. It's within walking distance of restaurants in the village. Great host - thank you Don for the helpful information. Room was delightful - what more can I say other than don't hesitate. If you're thinking of going to Acadia National Park - this place is ideal.


Handy location

2.8 on October 17, 2014

The inn was pleasant enough but our room was too small. There was a lack of a personal touch. The lobby was beautifully decorated and full of helpful printed material.


OK, but nothing special

2.4 on October 05, 2014

We expected a gourmet breakfast as is typical of New England B&B's, but it fell far short of our expectations both days we stayed at Harbour Cottage Inn. Also, the dining room was small and not able to accommodate many guests for breakfast. So, the B&B owner rushed the guests at breakfast and made you feel like you were in a fast food restaurant. Our room was OK, but very small and cramped.


We will return

4.2 on September 30, 2014

Loved the quietness, proximity to the center of Southwest Harbor and the quiet side of the Island.


Plesant Stay

3.6 on September 26, 2014

I would recommend this B&B to friends with the understanding that with the exception of a couple of rooms, there is no view of the harbor, at least in the summer and early fall. The Yawl room does not have a view as indicated. Wonderful breakfasts served on the lovely veranda or dining room. Within walking distance to the local lobster pound. Beautiful house on a quiet street.


Great location

3.2 on September 24, 2014

Room was very small but satisfactory. Bathroom heat lamp did not work but individual heat control for room worked well. Breakfast was outstanding but felt rushed by staff clearing plates without giving time to relax with our coffee. Owner was very helpful as to where to go/activities. Great location away from the crowded Bar Harbor.


Great service & fun

4.2 on September 22, 2014

The staff were extremely courteous and fun, the owner is very professional & a great asset for helping to plan your day. Breakfasts were marvelous!
