  • Great Cottage!!!

    "Owners friendly and helpful with first stay in MDI. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, near hikes, Acadia Park, and short walk to town. Plan on staying here again."

  • Wonderful Week at Orchard House

    "Staying at Orchard House was really a pleasure. The house has a clean, modern interior and was well-provisioned with lots of room to spread out and a great kitchen for cooking and entertaining. We have a young child and appreciated having a child’s room right off of the upstairs master. The friendly owners were very helpful, providing a great book of local recommendations and posting small signs throughout the house which clarified how things worked. Orchard House is in a peaceful wooded setting - no ocean view, but near a large lake (Walker Pond) that has boating, a small beach, and a children's day camp nearby. The location of the house was a perfect starting-off point for many adventures in Blue Hill, Brooksville, Deer Isle, and even Acadia National Park. We highly recommend this property for a wonderful week in Maine!"

  • Scott and Eunice

    "We had a wonderful week in Bass Harbor staying at the Seamist Cottage. The house easily met all our needs as far as space and provisions. We were there with three kids including a one year old and a pack-and-play and high chair were even provided. There were tons of books, both children and adult, as well as some toys that kept our kids occupied during the down time at the house. There was plenty of room/beds for several members of our extended family as well. The house was older but very well kept and clean. The location was great-short walk or drive to Bass Harbor light house with amazing views, beautiful Acadia surrounding us, half hour drive from Bar Harbor and all the attractions there, short drive to many of the carriage trails, few minutes drive from several trails which my husband and I enjoyed hiking alone before the rest of the house woke up, and a grocery store ten minutes down the road, just to name a few perks of the location. Even for the less physically active members of our group there was a free shuttle bus funded by LLBean that made stops at the Bass Harbor post office which was visible from the house. The bus took you all over Acadia and Bar Harbor and you could come and go as you pleased. From the time leading up to our rental and throughout our week long stay, the owners were very responsive to our questions and requests. We made some great memories on our Maine vacation and will definitely be back, sooner rather than later."

  • Great place to "get away from it all" but be close enough to the action to enjoy each day!

    "I booked this lovely cottage for my 70 year old mother and I when visiting Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. The view from the living room and porch is great and the sunsets were amazing. Spotted an eagle one morning when watching the lobster boats checking their traps. Ellsworth is a short drive away for groceries, gas stations and other amenities yet the cottage feels secluded and relaxing. My cellular provider has only limited service at the cottage but with wireless internet available at the cottage, it wasn't an issue. Easy drive to Mt Desert Island and Acadia & Bar Harbor. And don't miss swimming at Lamoine Beach, near Lamoine State Park! We are already talking about when we can book this great place again."

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.
