Guestbook comments from the owner

Taken from Guest Feedback Sheet: Beautiful sunrise from the fantastic windowfront walk (deck). Located close to the quaint town of Southwest Harbor. Walking distance from many great shops, restaurants, the pier, etc. Very affordable price. Close enough to Bar Harbor and Acadia, yet far enough away from the hustle and bustle. Thank you for letting us stay at your beautiful home in Southwest Harbor! We had a wonderful time and will be sure to contact you when we return to Maine in the future.

A great vacation place!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time and really enjoyed our stay at the Harbor Daze. The view is beautiful and the accomodations very adequate. We hiked and canoed and cooked lobsters a few days... We went to the airport and went on a glider ride-it was awesome ! We ate in town at a couple local restaurants and enjoyed the views from the deck.We did a day trip to Greenville, Moosehead Lake to look for moose and we found them- so neat and we got some great photos..

Fourteen days at Harbor Daze: #3 stay

  • 5 of 5
Well, what do you say the third time round? Revisiting an area for the third time in a little over a year is not that uncommon -- but putting your bags, brains, and bodies under the same roof each time is certainly a statement of great satisfaction with the place you are calling a temporary home. And home is what Harbor Daze is! It is always sparkling clean, quiet, with a wonderful open design that seems to suck in the relaxed ambience of Southwest Harbor. Harbor Daze is a great spot to stay while visiting Acadia. It is away from the touristy bustle of Bar Harbor but still very accessible to that part of the Park. The Eagle Lake parking area for biking the carriage roads is a quick hop away. And the Acadia NP trails in the SW Harbor area (Beech Mt, Acadia Mt, St. Saveur Mt, Mansell Mt, Bernard Mt, Flying Mt) are exquisite. I am writing this as I am booking Harbor Daze for 2015. Like I said at the start, what more can you really say?

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5
At Harbor Daze, our family of four had plenty of room to relax after hiking in Acadia. This is in a great location on the "quiet side", convenient to the trails at Beech Cliffs, Ship Harbor, and Bass Harbor, plus Echo Lake. There was a lobster pot big enough for 4 lobsters, so no one had to wait. There was also a gas grill and a kitchen with all the amenities. The house is clean and beautiful with all the wood, the Maine-themed decorations, and a fantastic view of the harbor. The hot tub is very nice, and I took more than one nap on the comfy couch. Thanks again for letting this be our home base for a great vacation.

A Fantastic Gem on Mount Desert Island

  • 5 of 5
Harbor Daze served as the perfect location to explore Acadia National Park and MDI. The location was away from the touristy Bar Harbor, and within walking distance to downtown SW Harbor (I recommend Sawyers for supplies, Sips, Quietside Cafe, and Red Sky for dining out).
The property was in excellent condition - the photos provided were spot on. Also, the property manager was very helpful in answering questions.
Highly recommended for anybody looking to visit MDI.

Harbor Daze - Fantastic Place!

I had a wonderful stay at Harbor Daze! The view is beautiful. The location is convenient to many Acadia National Park trails.
The house is just down the street from the downtown restaurants and shops. The house is quiet and the outdoor deck seating is perfect. I loved my stay at Harbor Daze and I hope to return again.

NIce Place Good Location.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Harbor Daze and would recommend this house to others. It is in a good location on the island for anything you want to do. We enjoyed hiking every day and it was nice to come back to the house and relax. It is close to Bass Harbor light house which is a great spot to watch the sunset. It is close to many good restaurants and shops. This is a great spot on the quiet side of the island but also close enough for a short ride in to Bar Harbor .
