We are a small, family run motel located just outside of Southwest Harbor on the ‘Quietside’, removed from the boisterous atmosphere of Bar Harbor. The ‘Quietside’ is the less commercialized and more family oriented west side of Mount Desert Island. We border one of the more serene entrances to Acadia National Park and offer comfortable, clean lodging with an engaging breakfast every morning. Protected by the solitude of the park, we are still in a convenient location, situated three miles from both Southwest Harbor and Bass Harbor restaurants and services.This area offers many activities for those who love the Outdoors !
