Welcome

Welcome to Mount Desert Island. We're the Lodges - Marge and Don - so of course, we are your hosts at "The Lodge-ings" of Southwest Harbor. This lovely little town is on the "Quietside" of the island, away from the congestion and commercialism of Bar Harbor, but still within minutes of all that Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park offer you. And there is just about as much of the park on our side of the island as there is on the other side, but less crowded and more peaceful.

After years of visiting and vacationing here, we can now share with our guests an area we love and enjoy. We know you'll enjoy it and love it as much as we do.

Perhaps we should have named our Bed & Breakfast "The Library." Besides wonderful lodging and breakfast, we offer approximately 1400 volumes of fiction, nonfiction, history, biography, and miscellaneous literature for you to enjoy while you're here. Take one of our books and sit with it in the sun on the ledges of Otter Cliffs, or while watching the surf come in at Sand Beach, or enjoy it during your lunch break as you look out over Somes Sound from the top of Mt. Nurembega.

Wireless internet is accessible throughout.

In any case, whether you're here to hike, to bike, to sail, or just to relax and unwind, we will be happy to welcome you as part of our extended family.
