Our Haloween Bash!

Well we just had our 9th annual Haloween party for our friends, business associated and guests of the inn. It was a great success and everyone had a blast. We even ended up on the social page of The Mt Desert Islander weekly newspaper. About 70 guests attended the event and the costumes were over the top? It gets better every year. We always close the Acadia National Park season with this event. Join us next year!!!

-Our napkins are made from recycled paper

-Our commercial kitchen’s dishwasher uses all biodegradable products to wash and disinfect all the pots and dishes.

-Our washers are water efficient saving thousands of gallons per year

-All our toilets are dual flush saving thousand of gallons per year

-Our bathroom sinks have water saving faucets

2010 Season is Underway Welcome Back!

Great news!
The Harbour cottage Inn has just been chosen by
Yankee Magazine
as Maine's
We are so pleased with this honor and it comes as a complete suprise. While visiting Acadia National Park you are sure to want a quiet romantic getaway. As a premier Southwest Harbor Maine bed and breakfast we will be sure to provide peace and quiet and to treat you some of Maine's best beds & breakfasts and send you out for dinner to some of the finest Acadia area restaurants. Several are in walking distance of the inn. You have to try Red Sky, Sips, Cafe 2, Top of the Hill and Seafood Ketch. For fantastic Mexican quisine don't forget XYZ. You will certainly want to visit Bar Harbor (just 12 miles away) but return to the quiet side of Mt Desert Island.
We look forward to our new and returning friends. Acadia National Park hiking, bird watching, biking and Maine coast sailing all await you and so do we.
