Our historic inn features bright and airy rooms with elegant décor, all the amenities needed to make you feel at home, and the Bowsprit Bar provides that extra perk for evening relaxation. We look forward to welcoming you soon!



The Harbour Cottage Inn is located in a quiet neighborhood in the village of Southwest Harbor on Mount Desert Island. The many activities that Acadia National Park and the beautiful coast of Maine have to offer are just minutes from our door, and comfortable and luxurious accommodations welcome you upon your return. 

In 2021, we built a beautiful deck for guests to enjoy the shade of our majestic tulip poplar. We wanted to make the most of our new space and so, the Bowsprit Bar was born.

We serve creative cocktails and shareable bites every evening to guests and the public alike. Gather with us for a pre-dinner cocktail, stop by for an after-dinner dessert, or sit and enjoy the firepit with a local cheese plate. Open 5:00pm-8:00pm nightly.
