A wonderfull house!

4.8 on July 08, 2014

We enjoyed the stay very much. We recommend this location. Everything was perfect: location, advise, food, room.

Relaxed Visit

4.0 on June 28, 2014

We stayed in one of the housekeeping units and it was clean, comfortable and private. Breakfast was good in the inn itself. Don was a delightful host. The only negative and it's a small one, is that there isn't room for your suitcases in two of the bedrooms.

The hotel, which you want to return again and again ...

We stayed at the hotel in a two-bedrooms HARBORSIDE, situated at the top of the hotel. Harbour Cottage Inn Bed and Breakfast left a very wonderful experiences The hotel is very clean, well maintained, decorated in an elegant and noble Victorian style, a unique interior, fireplace, furniture, rich library in the lobby, great breakfast and wonderful coffee. I want to mention a very friendly, homely atmosphere in the hotel, created by Don and Javier. If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing vacation with hiking with a camera and the ability to spend the evening with a book by the fireplace or playing chess under the great classical piano music, we recommend the hotel Harbour Cottage Inn All major attractions of Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor to be reached by car in 20-30 minutes Within 10 minutes walking distance are many good cafes and restaurants and the best and cheapest lobsters on the pier at Beal s Lobster Pier We will definitely return to this hotel for 2-3 days to our next visit to Acadia! Thanks for the great welcome! Viktor and Lyudmyla Nikonorov Ukraine June 2014

My wife and I had a wonderful stay , We will look forward to returning in the future.

The best side of Acadian National Park is Southwest Harbor

5 on May 30, 2014

and no better place to stay than the Harbour Cottage Inn. The setting is superb, the cottage is enchanting, and the owner just absolutely wonderful. We felt at home the minute that we arrived. Great advice on dining, exploring and hiking from the owner. Our room was delightful - well appointed, ample storage, a comfy bed and good bathroom. Breakfast was a treat with several options simply and always presented.

Harmony at Harbour

4.2 on November 12, 2013

Wonderful relaxing sojourn

Breakfasts are very good, dining area is pleasant.

3.2 on November 06, 2013

We stayed in this inn for three nights. The breakfasts were very good, among the best I've had at any B&B. Southwest Harbor and the places to walk or hike nearby are pleasant, but there's not much in the way of reasonably-priced restaurants. Our room and the one next to it are small and cramped. It was hard to get around the metal bedstead, especially at night. The inn is attractive, but the art on the walls was awful - oh well, you can't expect everything. This the first B&B I've ever stayed at that requests you to leave a tip in an envelope on the bedside stand. Don't they pay their employees enough?

Excellent B&B

4.0 on November 02, 2013

Very helpful and kind staff; great hospitality. Cosy and nice B&B, a must on a perfect location near the Acadia NP
