Harbour Cottage Inn

The Harbour Cottage Inn Bed and Breakfast sits above Southwest Harbor and is located less than 5 minutes away from Acadia National Park and 8 miles from Bar Harbor. The inn is comprised of 11 beautifully appointed guest rooms and suites all with private baths and was built in 1870 and was lovingly brought up to date to the highest standards in 2006.

The common areas are light and bright, elegant and comfortable and are furnished with contemporary as well as antique pieces adding an air of sophistication and humor in a casual cottage style. Spend time on our beautiful front porch or sit under the magnificent old Tulip Poplar on the front lawn and enjoy the tranquility of this very special place. We are noted for our great breakfasts and warm hospitality.

Cabin Collinwood – Gay Guesthouse in Festus, Missouri

Cabin Collinwood

Periodically we’ll feature one of our properties here to let our readers know about some great gay friendly places to stay:

Built log-by-log in 1982 by the proprietor’s late father, The Cabin Collinwood guesthouse is a country home with modern amenities! From its dovetail corners and creaky wood floors, to the natural wildlife and birds—the effect is that of living in a tree-house!

Nestled in the heart of the countryside a quick 35-mile drive from downtown St. Louis via I-55, The Cabin Collinwood is perfectly located for weekend breaks or leisurely mid-week getaways, with nearby antique & flea markets, shopping, wineries, country adventures, fishing, rivers and floating, swimming, camping, hiking, or perhaps a quick trip south to historic St. Genevieve. Twenty minutes away, you’ll find the quaint Mississippi River town of Kimmswick, replete with specialty shops, restaurants, and festivals that draw people from all over the country and region.

A little closer—the “Twin Cities” of Festus and Crystal City, where you’ll find eateries, pharmacies, grocery stores, banks/ATM’s, and “Richard’s Fresh Produce” market. Don’t forget to check out “Main & Mill” for a great burger and some of their micro-brewery craft beers! And just under five miles to the west: a stop at Wild Sun Winery where you’ll experience some of Missouri’s finest wines as part of your Jefferson County memories!

Get away from everything for that hike in the woods in some of the best parks in the nation, visit nearby rivers, relax with a huge library of in-house movies, and take some great naps! If you can’t quite “cut the cord” during your stay, our free Wi-Fi will help to keep you connected. The Cabin Collinwood is all about casual comfort on a heavily-wooded lot in a small private subdivision. It’s a great place to experience both country and city living whether you head south to get even further away from it all (and to some great historic areas), or head to the city for all that St. Louis has to offer! Should you wish, we’ll even help plan your itinerary start to finish!

Meet Me In St. Louis!

When you’re ready for the tourist attractions that make St. Louis unique, a quick ride from The Cabin Collinwood delivers you to the St. Louis Zoo for the day (still free), the Gateway Arch, St. Louis Art Museum, Forest Park and the legendary outdoor Muny Opera, City Museum, Ted Drewe’s famous frozen custard, Crown Candy Kitchen, Anheuser-Busch brewery tours, Grant’s Farm, Six Flags, the historic Soulard neighborhood with its blend of restaurants, the nightlife of University City and Chuck Berry’s “Blueberry Hill” and the St. Louis Walk of Fame, world-famous Italian restaurants in “The Hill” neighborhood, old-town Central West End, or maybe a Cardinals baseball game! These are but a few of the things to see and do, and you’ll find it all in St. Louis!

At day’s end, come “home” to The Cabin Collinwood to relax. You’ll have private bedrooms and semi-private baths, and shared common areas including the kitchen, living room, and two covered porches. See our web site for complete details and booking info.
