Beautiful property, great views and many seats on the large porches and lawns to enjoy. Room in Philips Cottage was roomy and comfortable, rustic, especially without a tv. Loved the breakfasts, the fireplaces in the common rooms. Played tennis but didn't get to enjoy the

The Claremont Hotel was a complete pleasure to visit. I’ve been there three times the past few years and hope to make staying there an annual event, as many of its guests seem to. Quietly elegant but without pretension or snootiness, I was instantly comfortable. The other

You simply can't imagine a more perfect setting for a hotel than Clark Point, the peninsula adjacent to Southwest Harbor that the Claremont Hotel sits on. Check out the Google Images for the Claremont, and then extrapolate a little--they don't really do the hotel justice! There

We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit that had view of the sound from the master bedroom, living room and deck. There was a wood-burning fireplace in the living room, full kitchen and large deck with table for 4. There are some units right on the water, but not sure if they have gas or wood fireplaces. Beal's lobster pier is short walk away and is excellent. Thurston's lobster pound is about 15-minute drive and is also excellent.
