The cottage makes a great home base for visiting Acadia.

It is cozy, peaceful and close to the parks attractions. Dave is a wonderful host! Our family had an excellent time and I would recommend this place. - (Jul 2019 - Airbnb)

Comfortable & cozy family friendly cottage

Great location: very close to Southwest Harbor and only 20 minutes away from Bar Harbor. Grocery store nearby. We sighted deer on the front lawn and the kids loved that. The kitchen is really well stocked, we really enjoyed it. There are many hiking trails 2 minutes away. What a wonderful place, hopefully we can come back again soon!

We returned home yesterday from a wonderful week at the Carriage House.

Dave was a warm, welcoming, cheerful host, and the place served our needs well. The flowers, map, and blueberry jam made for a very nice greeting (not to mention the deer in the driveway), and Dave makes great blueberry muffins. 
We've been coming to Acadia for decades and stayed in various circumstances, from motels to campsites to rentals, and we are grateful to you both for the thoughtful, island-specific service you provide, especially in the era of Airbnb.  
We look forward to our next trip. - (Aug 2018)

For almost 20 years we have been privileged to spend two weeks each September, in the Carriage House. The accommodations are excellent and the owner is a wonderful human being who bakes and shares delicious blue berry muffins. Acadia hiking trails and other "must do" places and activities are conveniently located nearby. There is a wide variety of restaurants in the area and convenient grocery shopping. You will love your vacation. 
Beautiful and relaxing vacation space

The Carriage House is a beautiful little cottage in Southwest Harbor. My husband and I stayed for a week. It was perfect for the two of us. Cool mornings on the porch looking at the garden were a highlight. The kitchen was well suited for making meals at home. The location was easily accessible to all parts of the island, but on the "quiet side" which was nice and relaxing. We did not see the owner much, but he was very hospitable and makes a great jar of applesauce! - (Nov 2017 - Previous)
