9-13 to 9-27, 2014 We again loved our stay at Calm Waters. The cottage is comfy as ever and the view never disappoints. We had great weather for hiking and took full advantage of it.

8-30 to 9-6-2014 This is our third stay at Calm Waters, each visit, two years apart. We always manage to "switch off and enjoy our down time here regardless of the weather. Such a great bonus that we can bring the whole family including the four legged members. Maybe next time we will manage a two week escape! Tracy and Jeff.   Marblehead, Mass

July 19, 2014 A wonderful respite from the daily routine. Mount Desert is a favorite destination and now Southwest Harbor is too. The home is kept beautifully and every wish anticipated. Thank You, Jay and El

6-27-14 We loved our first visit to Calm Waters and especially enjoyed relaxing in the "Tea House". We loved being on the quietside of the island while still being able to drive to Bar Harbor and hike in Acadia. When we were enjoying the view from here it was great walking into town for a meal at sips or some pie from Little Notch. Thanks for a great stay. we will be back. Erin and Mark

7-30-8-13, 2011 Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful cottage with us. we have had a splendid two weeks exploring MDI and can't wait to come back. We appreciate all the conveniences in the cottage and the proximity to town is wonderful! To have such an exquisite view of the water just steps from excellent restaurants is quite a luxury! And special thanks from our sheltie Rory for including dogs in your welcome! He learned that he loved Maine and that he especially loves lobster! Karen, Bill and Rory Allen, Buffalo, NY

7-2-7-9. 2011 Calm Waters was a wonerful retreat and a great place to enjoy MDI in July. Located at the center of Southwest Harbor was perfect for all of our adventures. The dog enjoyed his time in the water and woods. Tea House cute but sad that it wasn't functional with water to stay down there alot more. Thanks, we will be back! Barret, Logan and Dave

June 18, 2011 We arrived at Calm waters late at night so at 4 am i rushed down the stairs to see the view. As I turned the corner and saw the water. ducks and Adirondack chairs my heart stopped.This place is beyond words!! Spent alot of time sitting by the water a and watching the ducks.( we counted 34) Hiked up flying mountain(beautiful views, took a boat trip, had dinner at sips, lobster at Thurstons, so much more to do but we paced our selves so that we can come back! Enjoyed the previous comments, especially seeing how regulars come back. Love the name Babette!!) thank you for a wonderful stay, the house is great. France and Chad Havertown, Pa

Bruse, Linda and Luna, East Hampton, New York

We loved staying at Calm Waters. The area is Beautiful and there is so much to see and do. I'm almost positive that we'll be back. Calm waters and the Tea House are both amazing, from our first moments we got here we loved it

Lovely and usual. unfortunately, we knew to cut our stay short this year but we adore MDI and Calm Waters and intend to be back. Bravo for the many improvements to the cottage this year! Thanks The Eberts

We will miss the Tranquility of being hare watching the tides come in and out each evening from the patio or the "Tea House". This Cottage had very spacious area to relax and kick back to enjoy!

Really enjoyed our stay, thinks so much, Bobs Teahouse was fun-watching the tide roll in and out, Carolyn and Joe

A perfect spot, a perfect week from Ice Cream to Lobster stew, hiking here on the quiet side, launching Kayaks, reading and falling in love all over again. just bliss. we'll be back.Vicki and Mark, Andover, Ma


We were Married on Saturday, July 24, 2010 at the Asticou Inn in Northeast Harbor. We spent out first week as a married couple at the Calm Waters and I cant think of a better way to start our new life together. We have so many fond memories of our first week together that we cant wait to come back . The Patella

We had such a great week at Calm Waters. The cottage is within walking distance to so very much, Biking, Kayaking, great food even a library, The view from the top of Flying Mt { a short but rewarding hike) and the summits of valley peak and Cadillac Mt are a must see! The Gift card that came with the keys and the basket of brochures on the counter for local attractions was very thoughtful.. so all in all Calm Waters was great . We saw eleven ducks on the water behind the cottage everyday. Wonderful The Guerin Family

We loved Calm Waters. What a treat to walk into a clean , cute little cottage. The view is beautiful and we loved "Mr Bob's Tea House". Our Cock Poo Winston, loved to swim with the ducks and chase balls in the yard. This is our first time in Acadia... absolutely beautiful. Ate at great restaurants, liked fun rails, had wine at Mr. Bob.. we loved it, Thank you for a great week. Russ and Sue Golden and Winston WOOF WOOF Sinsbury, Ct

Another very enjoyable stay at Calm Waters. Thanks so much for clearing the brush and restoring the great view! We sure appreciate it!
We will be back!
Denyse Simard-Ebert

Sorry about that. The view is now completely open. The gentleman I hired to keep it open evidently forgot to do it this year. Hopefully, that won't happen again. Enjoy! Mr Bob


Love this cottage. We have returned many times and intend to continue to do so. The only thing that could be improved upon concerns the beautiful view!We could not help but notice that it is starting to be hidden by overgrowth at the hedge of the property.It would be wonderful is something could be done about it.

Wonderful spot, protected cove kept us safe even from Hurricane Irene! Close to all, great little restaurants. Easy put in for the kayak, saw grey seal and porpoises in the harbor by the Coast Guard station, a real treat

Relaxing, rejuvenating - a little slice of heaven.


B. Schillinger Sept 4-11, 2010
We loved the cottage. It had a perfect location for us. We could hike all day, return to the cottage; sit on the deck , with wine in hand and watch the tides come in and go out. When we were finished with that activity we could walk to Beals or to town for dinner. We can not wait to return to this cottage again next year.

What a great little place! Where else could we see bald eagles and osprey sitting on our back patio! Calm Waters is the perfect launching spot in a perfect little town. The boys had a great time kayaking at high tide & exploring at low tide. We loved swimming in Echo Lake, exploring tide pools, and all the great hiking trails. Hope to do it all again soon!

Dear Owners and (Cleaners)
Thank you for sharing your home away from home with us. It was clean, cozy, bright and a perfect relaxing vacation. Mr Bob's Tea House is simply delightful. The boys enjoyed exploring their "cool fort"--equipped with rope pulleys, lobster trap, TV and games! The sun was shining all week on us! Cheers! Ruth, Dave, Dylan and Aldan - Essex, MA

From the guest book: Aug 30 - Sep 15
Another wonderful two weeks at Calm Waters. This year we introduced our one year old German Shepherd Gina to the wonderful town of Southwest Harbor. We think she will be as sorry to say goodbye for another year as we are.

We had a delightful time. We really enjoyed the cottage and "Bob's tea house". We biked a lot, went to Cranberry Island, climbed Cadillac, went to Bar Harbor and Bar Island, ate many lobsters, kayaked and explored The Quiet Side. We loved being close to town. We did all this despite rain 7 out of 8 days (UGH). Oh well, "carpe diem" as they say.

Additional comments: I like how close it was to the public docs. I could go fishing every day. Bob's Tea House was great! I could get away from my parents.

Thank you for the experience. Tom, Kelly, Kilian and Mitchell Smith.

Thank you for another wonderful week at Calm Waters.  We hate to leave this beautiful spot on the harbor.  See you next year!
