We enjoyed everyday of our stay, it was hard to leave. Very clean, cozy and comfortable. The harvest moon was an added extra. Thanks for sharing your home with us! We will return! Nancy R - (Oct 2017)

Fantastic family vacation!

My wife, 2 kids (3.5yrs and 9 months), and I stayed here for just under a week and had a great time. The house was very clean, comfortable, had all the amenities needed (plus a hot tub) and the most amazing view - sunrises were incredible. The location can't be beat with a short walk to downtown Southwest Harbor and easy drive to Acadia National Park, Bass Harbor Head lighthouse and Bar Harbor. Jane was easy and informative to work with providing recommendations as needed. We will definitly be back. Eric K - (Oct 2017)

Incredible place to stay in SW Harbor Maine

We normally rent cabins in the woods and were concerned that a condo would not satisfy our needs of peace and quiet. Boy were we wrong. We rented Midship and the place was incredible. We could lay in bed and watch an amazing sunrise over the boats in the harbor, take a relaxing hot tub after spending the day hiking or just sitting on the top floor with floor to ceiling windows watching the excitement in the harbor. The place was immaculate and had everything we could possibly want. Jane was wonderful to work with and went out of her way to give us off the beaten path places to eat. Kathy S - (Sep 2017)

Perfect views, perfect location

This was my first trip to any part of Maine and was something my wife, who has been to Maine before, wanted me to experience. I'm normally more of a beach kind of person and am extremely picky about the places I stay but wanted to give it a shot. I knew that picking this house was the right decision the moment I stepped through the door and the first thing I could see was the harbor straight through the opening and into the downstairs living area. If we weren't out and about checking out the local stores or Acadia, we were enjoying ourselves with drinks on the deck, watching ships come in and out or staring up at the night sky from the hot tub. The area itself is quiet, not a lot of traffic compared to, say, Bar Harbor and a lot of shops and restaurants within walking distance. And with the main parts of Acadia just a simple drive around the corner, the location allowed the best of everything: Nice quiet area to relax in, followed by a quick drive over to hiking trails along the shore line and up mountains. Would definitely stay again. Frank G - (Jun 2017)
