Quiet Stay on the Quiet Side
We loved our stay in the Carriage House. Beautiful place and lovely hosts!
Thank you so much for the lovely review! It was our pleasure to have you both as guests at the carriage house.
We really enjoyed staying her. It was beautifully decorated and the kitchen was better equipped than my own. The owners clearly put lots of attention to detail. We did one hike right from the cottage. Would only clarify that the owner’s house is also on the property (with some distance between) so I would say it’s not quite as secluded as I imagined from the description). I would definitely return there. I thought being on the quiet side of the Island was a big plus. Lots of beautiful trails without having to fight the crowds. We did go to the other, more crowded side, but we made a point of getting there early- a must if going to any of the trails near Sand Beach or Jordan Pond. Would have taken the Park bus if we had gone any later.
The carriage house was exactly what we had hoped for. Wooded setting near hiking trails. Far enough away from swarms of tourists, yet close enough to access the main parts of park. Comfortable and cozy with everything we needed. Gracious hosts.
We enthusiastically recommend this place and hope to stay again.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review of your stay at the Carriage House. It was our pleasure to meet you both and we would be delighted to see you for a return visit.
Beautiful Southwest Harbor Carriage House
Had a fabulous stay at Cyd and Ken’s carriage house! Cyd and Ken are great hosts and the location was perfect! Everything was spotless and anything you could possibly need was there. We enjoyed hiking during the day and relaxing in the garden Adirondack chairs with lunch and a glass of wine in the afternoon. Simply beautiful and inviting! Didn’t want to leave and can’t wait to return!
Thank you so very much for such a wonderful review of your stay at the carriage house. We are thrilled to know how much you enjoyed your visit.
It would truly be our pleasure to see you for a return visit.
Idyllic cottage in SW Harbor
Ken & Cyd's rental cottage was the perfect spot for our weeklong exploration of Acadia national park. We took several short hikes, all less than 15 minutes away, kayaked Long Pond, biked the carriage roads, then relaxed in peace each night.
Thank you so very much! We are delighted you enjoyed your stay on the Island and at the carriage house.
Cyd & Ken’s Carriage House is a quaint and cozy getaway, yet abundantly close to ANP and the quieter side of Mt Desert Island. While this was a short visit for us this time, this is our second stay and we wouldn’t hesitate to do it again...and most likely will when we return to the island. Cyd & Ken are pleasant folks who we also enjoyed chatting with while there. Thank you again for hosting us!
