We had an outstanding stay at the bow sprit cottage. Everything as exactly as it appeared online. Very comfortable, clean and with a lovely water view. Location is great for hiking and Southwest Harbor is a very cool town. Staff were friendly and helpful. The cottage was very quiet and serene, removed from the hussle and bussle of Bar Harbor, yet a short ride from anything you could want.

The Bow Sprit, as described, is right on the water, perfect for all who love the sea! Being a part of the harbor life in this cozy little den was a marvelous treat. It's close to town, great restaurants nearby.....a perfect little piece of heaven. i highly recommend it, and the gardens are an inspiration!

This review is for the Deck House. This is a wonderful and private cottage overlooking Southwest Harbor. The grounds around the area are beautifully maintained. The house itself is not large but it is equipped with every conceivable thing you may need. And who would be inside when there is that amazing deck offering both sun and shade seating. We loved the view of the harbor. We were concerned about noise on a working harbor, but this location is very quiet. Don is an accommodating and good humored host. Beal's Lobster Pier is a short walk. Southwest Harbor offers a variety of good eating options. We would definitely stay here again.

The Bow Sprit was a great place to stay. Beautiful views. Close to downtown, but quiet. Cute little kitchen. Comfy bed. Cool art. And Don is a great host!
