traveler reviews for this bar harbor cottage rental

A great vacation place!

Review submitted: July 3, 2008   Date of arrival: May 31, 2008

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..

Great place to stay

Review submitted: June 8, 2014   Date of arrival: May 25, 2014

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

Review submitted: June 1, 2014   Date of arrival: May 13, 2014

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.
