Excellent location for visiting Acadia National Park and Mount Desert
"I stayed at the Corson Cottage in mid August and found the place to be a great central location for visiting Mount Desert Island and all it has to offer. The cottage was extremely well kept and had everything you would need to stay for the week. I was able to rent for just 3 nights , even though usually weekly, due to an opening. I am very glad I was able to. There are plenty of places to visit/hike all around the cottage. It is just a short drive to the shops/restaurants in Southwest Harbor. It is a short drive to Bar Harbor or Bass Harbor. The apartment has an upper level which has two twin beds. Downstairs had a queen bed which was very comfortable. There is a porch out back where you can sit or grill (just make sure you use bug spray in August). Mary was helpful with information when I asked but did not bother you at all. I would recommend this cottage for any visits to the area, great value."

"Our family had an unforgettable vacation at The Punch Bowl. The accommodations are lavishly outfitted, comfortable and generous; the natural beauty of the private peninsula is so singularly special; and the love and history of the seafaring family is wonderfully palpable. We swam in the cove, took out canoe and kayak, saw the resident bald eagle and other wildlife, picnicked in the ping-pong house and held a tournament, cooked lobster on the outdoor burners, lounged on the porch, and watched every sun set. It was everything we hoped our mini reunion would be."

"We just returned from L 'Acadie with such beautiful memories. Our purpose was to celebrate my husband's 65th birthday so I wanted something that was out of the ordinary. We certainly found it at L'Acadie. We traveled with another couple and I was given the privilege of making all the arrangements. I knew from the reviews and the pictures that we wouldn't be disappointed but to see 65 plus year olds get excited about our location and accommodations was a treat in itself. The first evening we had the lunar eclipse and was able to experience that on the upper deck...what a site and start to a perfect week. We did have a lot of rain one day but even that was a good thing as it made us slow down just a bit and enjoy the quietness of the area. There was a great grocery store in South West Harbor, only a few minutes from L 'Acadie for the few things we needed. We had such a great time at a local restaurant too....if you get the chance, stop at Sipps in Southwest Harbor. Another highlight,on a rainy day was Oceanarium, north of Bar Harbor. Be sure to have popovers at Jordon Pond and Lobster stew...and don't forget Lobster at Thurston's about 5 minutes from L'Acadie...We all cannot wait to go back someday."

Wonderful views of the harbor and great host and hostess!
"My husband and I stated for 4 nights on a trip to Acadia. The room was immaculately clean and the bed very comfy. Best is the views out the large picture window of the apartment. Or sit and enjoy the view from the Adirondack chairs right on the beach. I spent most mornings enjoying the lobster boats going out of the harbor and watching the harbor seal and a few porpoises swim around. Great location (on the quiet side of town), wonderful views, great accommodations and even better hosts. We will certainly be returning! Andrew and Diane also recommended a great stops on our way down to Portland. They certainly didn't disappoint! They are truly amazing hosts!"
