The Harbor View Motel offers the best views on Mount Desert Island and does so at a very affordable price. Overlooking the beautiful harbor, the Harbor View is a family friendly business that not only has access to the ocean, but also a huge field that is ideal for kids and adults to play or relax on.

Joe and Lorraine Saunders have owned the Harbor View Motel and Cottages for 50 years. During this time, much has remained the same with only a handful of subtle changes taking place. Maybe that's why the Harbor View has so many repeat customers...they feel comfortable with their clean and cozy surroundings, and they know they will be treated like family by the friendly and knowledgeable staff. 

The motel is a five minute walk from Southwest Harbor. This quaint little village on the "quiet side" has numerous cafes, restaurants and shops ideal for those looking for something unique, or for just relaxing at one of the outside patios. We hope you will give The Harbor View Motel a try and find out why so many people call it "home" during the summer months.
