Recent Blue Hill reviews

  • A perfect place in the woods

    "We have been making regular trips to Down East Maine for many years and a few years ago happened upon the beautiful and very tranquil retreat at Woods Pond in Blue Hill. Vicki has built a wonderful little house that combines the best of both worlds: tucked away in the woods on the lake yet readily accessible to all that Down East has to offer; all the important modern amenities while offering an escape from the usual hustle and bustle. While we look forward to hiking, biking, paddling, and enjoying the outdoors when in Maine, one can really do as much or as little as one wants from this perfect home base. Although the weather this past year was the best overall that we have experienced, we find when we are at Woods Pond that it does not make much difference in the end - if it rains, we just stay in and relax, read, cook, listen to music and the rain on the roof, even stroll around a bit or just sit on the porch. It is the perfect place to get away from it all and listen to the quiet. You will be welcomed warmly upon your arrival and given a quick introduction to the retreat. Vicki clearly loves this retreat and we are thrilled every year we go back that she has chosen to share the experience with us. Thank you, Vicki!"

  • Perfect!

    "This was our second stay at Dragonfly Cove. The owners are kind, warm and helpful. The house is beautiful and well maintained, bedding and furniture is very comfortable. The house is perfectly isolated, yet close to small towns like Blue Hill and Castine, both are wonderful to visit. There is a small store just down the road run by friendly locals. We rented kayaks from The Activity Shop in Blue Hill. They deliver and pick up and also are very friendly (book in advance). The pond is great for swimming and kayaking. If you want a chance to reconnect with family, friends, and nature, this is a great spot. We have two teenagers and both times we have visited, they have told us that this is their favorite vacation! Acadia is about an hour away and a must see, but there are also plenty of closer hikes. It is such a peaceful place and I am thankful they are able to share it."

  • Excellent Arbor house stay!

    "We have stayed several times at Arbor House. It has such charm and heritage to the home. The house was conveniently located to downtown with quaint little shops. Bluehill is a fantastic town to vacation with a large holistically minded/creative/ artist population. The hostess went over and above to make our stay memorable and comfortable! We will definitely return to the house!!"

Blue Hill Travel Tips

Find Adventure at Blue Hills Vacation Rentals

Love the mountains and the beach? Experience both in beautiful Acadia National Park; this stunning location is filled with grand cliffs, spectacular glaciers, and rugged terrain and is amazingly close to the Atlantic Ocean. Smart travelers will settle into one of the Blue Hills vacation rentals, which are located within striking distance of a variety of scenic areas. Here you'll be able to take a walk along a pebble stone beach or go for a hike in the hills, and with almost 120 miles of trails forged in these mountains and along the shoreline, any visitor to this beautiful area will be delighted with the abundant opportunities to explore.

The Pride of Maine

Blue Hill lodging also places you close to a variety of geological miracles that never cease to amaze and delight visitors. Make sure you check out Thunder Hole, for example; it's a place where the jagged cliffs meet the pounding surf, and the noise has been compared to the sound of thunder. Or hike Pemetic Mountain, and when you reach the top, take in a stunning 360-degree view. You've still barely scratched the surface of the wonders of this national park.

Nightlife and Entertainment

Renting one of the Acadia cottages is a cozy alternative to bland and often pricey hotels, and not only does it put you close to nature's beauties, but it also allows you to take advantage of all the local entertainment. In nearby Bar Harbor, you'll find a wide variety of restaurants, shopping, museums, bars, and music. You can also go kayaking, whale-watching, climbing, and even golfing. A great place for travelers, this area has something for everyone with spas, trolley rides, and even an art-deco theater. You'll never forget the rich experiences you have as a visitor, and Blue Hills vacation rentals give you the perfect place from which to enjoy it all.
