  • That view and that beach

    "It's actually hard to believe you are sitting on your own private expanse of rocky seawall beach between Seal Harbor and Northeast Harbor among the million dollar estates. But you really are. And twice a day it's transformed by tides to what feels like two very different and equally exciting shores. In between you can gaze uninterrupted to Bear Island and Sutton Island beyond. Mornings you're pleasantly stirred by lobster boats and days can be filled by watching the many types of boats go by. The property is just as described, but the view and setting is even more impressive than shown. The location is ideally away from the noise and crowds of Bar Harbor but a stones throw from the lovely sand beach in Seal Harbor. Seemed like everything on the island was 20 minutes away from the property. Found it to be a great retreat from the more touristy parts of MDI but convenient to all the necessities of a week away. There are a few minor things to know when you consider this property, though. The house is 50 or so feet from Route 3 which means you hear every passing car / truck. This isn't a terrible distraction, but you do notice it. There is a fold-away couch in the den (which has a full bath next to it) if you would like 3 truly private bedrooms. The loft is above the master and does not have it's own bath like the other bedrooms. While occupants of the loft and master can't see each other because of a high railing, you can certainly hear everything. Perhaps this arrangement is perfect for members of the same family (kids upstairs and parents down)? And did I mention the private beach and the view..."

  • Solar Simplicity with an Ocean View

    "We loved staying at Campa Bella! It is a perfect place to stay with dogs since it is not on the main road so you don't have to worry about the dogs running out the door and getting hit, not that there are many cars even on the main road. The cottage is clean and comfortable. The deck is large enough that as the sun sets behind the cottage you can still catch rays while reading a book in the comfortable La Fuma recliners. The well water pump in the kitchen was easy and fun to use. I enjoyed using the sun shower, too. Every day after our hike in Acadia we swam in Long Pond with our dogs. Most of the summer residents swim there as well. A popular spot! Found a great trail that leads to a little outcropping that is off the main road for sitting by the pond. It is just before you get to the main beach. The trails are beautiful but some are a bit overgrown. The main trails along the ocean are spectacular! Enjoy!"

  • Perfect in every way for our visit to Acadia National Park

    "Virginia, My wife and I never formally thanked you for our stay back in October. We had a great time, and loved staying on the quieter side of the island. Yes we were there just as the Fed closed down, but that did not impede our travel plans in the least. As a matter of fact if may have made them better. My wife and I had planned on biking the carriage trails and hiking in the park, so those flimsy barricades were no match for our trusty 2 wheels and legs. We actually felt like we had the park to ourselves (more or less). The only negative was there were no restrooms open….but that’s what the woods are for anyway…right! And we didn’t get to have popovers at the Jordan Pond house. But we did eat our lunch one day right on the pond, and the next day we ate on the lawn of the restaurant. We did do some hiking, but did not get to climb Cadillac Mountain, as it was not easy to get to from the perimeter of the park without a car. But everything else we came to do we were able to do. Lots of good restaurants in the area. We did eat at a lobster pound and had a lobster roll another day. My wife and I are not big lobster eaters, so that was more of a mission than a passion, but now we can say we did it. We did stumble upon a unique place called the Common Grounds Café. Not sure if you are familiar with it, but it is out by the seawall. It is more of a soup kitchen for the poor where visitors make donations for a modest breakfast (which did include popovers) and the proceeds feed locals during the winter months. There were some characters there and that experience will give us stories to tell for years to come. Your place is amazing! I want to affirm you for the outstanding job you did in remodeling the barn into such a lovely cozy hideaway. The use of space was superb. The finish out was first class. And the location and relaxation factor were out of this world! We could have easily stayed for two weeks and not gotten tired of Acadia, and the enjoyment of hanging around your cottage. We stay at a lot of VRBO properties and yours is definitely one of the nicest and coolest places we have stayed. I’m sorry we did not get to meet you, but by the way your place looks I can tell you are an outstanding individual. Peace and Blessings as we move into the holidays. And of course Merry Christmas!"

  • Adventure to remember

    "What a week! The house is located just 13 minutes by car to Bar Harbor, 10 minutes by car to the entrance to Acadia National Park. If you choose to take the bus, the pick up spot is only a short walk away from this roomy, clean, comfortable home. We really liked the home and area! Just down the road from the cape house was a great spot to kayak. We did not bring ours but wish we had. I forgot the name of the harbor / bay area but a fantastic spot for that. There were 5 adults (4 woman and 1 fella) and one small dog that embarked upon this adventure and we never felt cramped in this home. LOVE IT. Hope to go back next year! Thank you for renting us the great home. Its a keeper! Can't say enough about the beauty. If visiting, do yourself a favor and pick up an Acadia Weekly magazine... its free and you can get one at any info center. Its very informative on driving around, the bus routes and has some great activity ideas. We used it every day and because of the magazine we hiked Acadia Mountain, it was AWESOME! I hope all enjoy as much as we did."

Brooklin Travel Tips

Brooklin Vacation Rentals Offer a Relaxing Getaway

Brooklin is a quaint village where visitors come to escape the bustle of every day life. The best Brooklin lodging options are Brooklin vacation rentals. Rentals provide a sort of home away from home feel for vacationers and normally offer an array of amenities to choose from. The Acadia cottages are an excellent choice, especially when you want the privacy and space needed to truly relax during your trip.

Book a Sailing Charter

A popular past time in Brooklin is sailing. The view of Blue Hill Bay and the surrounding landscape is unrivaled during a sailing day trip. Some vacationers choose to bring their own sailboat to store at the Brooklin vacation rentals when they aren't out on the water. Other vacationers prefer to book a sailing charter with a local company such as Brooklin Charters. Make your sailing trip even more enjoyable by bringing along a tasty lunch or supper to enjoy on the water.

Enjoying the Local Cuisine

When staying at the Brooklin vacation rentals, you will likely want to eat most of your meals on your cottage patio. Making your own meals during a vacation is a great way to save money and enjoy the company of friends and loved ones. If you prefer to dine out, there are a few local restaurants such as Morning Moon Café and The Lookout that offer great food and a relaxed atmosphere.

Hiking Near Brooklin Lodging

The landscape surrounding Brooklin vacation rentals is breathtaking. One trail that you will want to hike during your stay is the School to the Sea Walking Trail. The trail is 3.5 miles long and worth every step. You can also just wander along the bay surrounding the Acadia cottages for a morning walk or evening stroll.
