Recent Acadia reviews

  • Great vacation!

    "This was our first time back to MDI in many years. It was a gem of a vacation. The house was perfect for our family, well stocked, and comfortable. The location made it easy to access Acadia and neighboring communities- just a short bike ride to the carriage roads and local beach. This was a wonderful place to unwind and enjoy the local treasures. We were sad to leave and can't wait to come back again! We recommend!"

    "We loved staying in your lovely cottage in the woods. So quiet and yet, so close to Kneisel Hall, the town of Blue Hill and the water. After a day of music making, the perfect place on the porch, for wine and cheese. See you again in summer 2015."

  • Bass Harbor Magic

    "We were 7 friends all 70 and then some. Some of us had been to Bass Harbor before and for others this was a first. The house is charming and very well equipped, beds, kitchen, washer and dryer and best of all a great porch. The owners were most helpful in suggesting not to be missed sites and restaurants. Our favorite morning spot was Common Grounds, they serve the best popovers on the island, and coffee and old fashion oatmeal...not to be missed. The house allowed each of us together spaces and private space, which was needed for a 2 week vacation with car travel. I will recommend this house to any and all who plan to visit Mt Desert Island and Arcadia National Park. During the summer there is free bus service on the island and over to Ellsworth so its possible to enjoy Seamist cottage without a car."

  • We hope to return!

    "We are so very pleased with the stay in Northeast Harbor just at the outskirts of Acadia National Park. The unit was very clean on arrival, more than I have seen in other holiday rental apartments and houses, which both added to our level of comfort throughout the stay and attests to the care the owner puts into the property. When there were small issues, such as running out of gas for the grill, the owner was there to replace the gas within minutes. This to me is the great benefit of renting from someone on site--it is an extra buffer to insure things go well during your too-short holiday time. The beds were comfortable and showers were never short on hot water. The kitchen was perfect for making meals for the 7 of us (two small families). The proximity to the back door of Acadia both gets you to the park easily and also keeps you away from the busier front entrance on the Bar Harbor side of the park. Northeast Harbor provides all the basics you need for a good stay, and you are about a 10-15 mile ride from larger grocery stores. There is an elementary school across the street with a playground, baseball and soccer fields, great for running around at the end of the day of you have kids and with very little traffic at night, again perfect to enjoy the peace and quiet of the area yet close to so many activities. It could not have been a more pleasant stay. We look forward to coming back!"

Acadia Travel Tips

Rocky Coastlines Abound by Acadia Vacation Rentals

Land and sea come together on the rocky coastline of Maine. Spend a week in summer enjoying the sights and sounds at Acadia vacation rentals. A spacious house with the ideal view of Bar Harbor, Bass Harbor or Somes Sound can be yours. You can find the perfect vacation rental with VRBO for your family reunion or family vacation. Acadia rentals offer you the chance to prepare your own fresh lobster dinners on your private deck or watch the sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean while having your breakfast. There are plenty of amenities to make your stay more enjoyable, such as comfortable beds, large living areas and room to relax indoors or out.

Acadia National Park is Minutes Away From Acadia Lodging

You and your family can visit Acadia National Park to see the 54 square miles of Mount Desert Island. This fantastic island is the largest rock-based island in the Atlantic Ocean region. These rounded domes have been around for centuries with summits that are clustered with pine, spruce and fir trees as well as a profound profusion of wildflowers. Bird-lovers will find a large variety of birds within the park’s boundaries so do not forget to bring your binoculars. Guests of Acadia rentals can visit the park throughout the year with the exception of a two-mile section along the ocean during the winter.

With a fully equipped kitchen, you will be able to pack a picnic lunch so that you can hike some of the 125 miles of trails. If you are so inclined, there are horse-drawn carriage rides that are available from mid-June to early October. Otherwise, you can indulge your passion for fresh sea air by biking or taking a walking tour. Park rangers are on-hand from late spring to early fall to provide information on the area. After a delicious dinner, bring the family to a campfire program where you could learn about marine life, history or wildlife. You can even take a cruise around Frenchman Bay and the Cranberry Islands to get a great perspective from the water. A seven-day pass is the perfect accompaniment to your wonderful Acadia lodging reservation.

Acadia Travel Means Shopping and Restaurants

What could be better than a fresh lobster dinner while you are on vacation in Maine? You may decide you do not want to cook this feast yourself but dine out at one of the many restaurants in the area. There will be many that fit anyone’s budget and they do not all serve seafood. The restaurants in the Down East and Acadia region feature fresh ingredients with simple to extravagant cuisine. If you tire of seafood, you can find pasta, pizza, steak, and lighter fare such as salads and soup. One of the most popular and well-known restaurants in the area is the Atlantic Brewing Company in Bar Harbor. The estate is also located in Bar Harbor so you can see how the beer there is made.

Shopping is another leisure activity that can be enjoyed while staying in Acadia vacation rentals. Whether you are looking for a gift or want a memento of your time together in this amazing place, you can find it. If you have come away without the proper clothing or just want something new for your wardrobe, visit the Black Sheep Trading Company. This great store has hand-woven sweaters, moccasins, slippers or sheepskin items. If you want to indulge in a sweet confection to top your morning English muffin, visit Nervous Nellie’s Jams and Jellies. Maine crafts are abundant at Maine-ly Made Gifts where you can bring home items that remind you of the sea. Bookstores, artisans and artists all display their wares in the Acadia area.

Choose the Best Time to Visit Acadia

Many people love to visit the seashore in the summer when the weather is at its most cooperative. You need to plan ahead to secure the Acadia vacation rental that will provide you with a great view and space that you want for your family. There are many homes, seaside cottages and condos to choose from. If you are not committed to a summer vacation, you can find some great deals in the off-season. Whenever you are able to visit the Acadia area though, you will find a flawless accommodation to rejuvenate your body.
