Room 50 for 50!

It's hard to believe, but this year marks the 50th anniversary for Joe and Lorraine Saunders and the Harbor View Motel.  When Joe and Lorraine took over the Harbor View 50 years ago, Southwest Harbor was a sleepy little town with a very busy fishing industry, the Harbor View consisted of 12 motel units, 4 cottages and of course, that "million dollar" view. Through the years there have been subtle changes (a new main building and a few more cottages), and it's gone from Lorraine running the show to Joe having a more active role. However, the excellent staff, stunning view and affordable prices have remained the same.
In honor of Joe and Lorraine Saunders owning the Harbor View Motel for 50 years, we are introducing room 50! This room has an excellent view of the harbor, and is the only room with two queen beds! 
Thank you everyone for your support, and here's to another 50 years!
