As I said above it is a great spot to stay. Reasonably priced, nice people running it. My only complaint is after you use one small bar of soap you are expected to go and buy your own, along with the TP. I find that very trivial, and also the face that there are instructions on the fridge telling you...

We are a senior couple who stayed at Bow Sprit for five days. It is a beautiful little unit which overlooks the harbor. We enjoyed the covered, private deck as we watched the tide go in and out. This is a studio unit which is beautifully and tastefully appointed. It has an open feel to it. The small kitchen was...

Our week at Pier One (Quata Deck) was a delight. I was apprehensive booking, sight unseen, but couldn't have been more pleased. I would and will recommend Pier One and Harbor Cottage B&B to anyone heading for SWHarbor. Sharon M.

We had a wonderful time staying at the Bow Sprit! The unit was charming with a beachy, eclectic, comfortable decor, and our hosts were wonderful. We enjoyed watching the tide come in and out right outside our windows. The kitchen was well equipped, but we didn't use it much since we were within walking distance of several great restaurants. The...

We stayed for four nights in Bow Sprit. The room was exceptionally clean and looked out onto the harbor. The bed was very comfortable. The internet was fast and always available. The living area (sofa, chair & coffe table) allowed us to relax at night. The kitchen had all the necessary items for breakast or a meal if you are...

I stayed in a one bedroom unit of Pier One, which opened to the ocean. This is a place for people who care about detail, care about design and care about their environment. Everything is thought-through, every detail. If you are a collector, like small, perfected spaces, enjoying cooking and sitting on the deck, reading or looking out at the...

This is my second stay at Topside at Pier One Vacation Rentals. Two years ago I stayed two weeks with two friends and loved it so much that I returned this year with my daughter and granddaughter. It is such a delightful place with amazing hosts Don and Javier who work especially hard to make their guests feel at home....

Wonderful cottage on a deck overlooking Southwest Harbor. Beautiful breeze, incredible views, lovely interior. Don, the property owner / manager was friendly and accommodating. Can't wait to go back in a couple of years.

My teenage son and I stayed in the Topside at Pier One. The place had some pros and cons. This is a 2 bedroom unit which was perfect for us. There is a pull-out sofa in the living room so the unit is said to be for 4-6 people but I think that 6 would be VERY crowded. The bedrooms...

I stayed in one of their units in August 2014 for about 1 week. They are located right on the water on the shores of this working harbor. You are steps away from the sailing school, a lobster pound & a working fishing dock. It's a short walk into Downtown- about 15-20 minutes- very pretty streets & no traffic. Unlike...

“Its a bit cozy. If you like to sprawl out, then pack lightly as the square footage is tight.”
