Recent Acadia reviews

  • 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."

  • A Gorgeous Property and Fantastic Experience!

    "The Down East Cottage is an absolutely lovely home and exceeded our expectations in every way for our family vacation in Maine...the setting is more breathtaking than the photos capture! The cottage is pristine and is the perfect location to access MDI/Acadia and we also had a fantastic experience right around the corner at Lamoine beach finding starfish, quahog and razor clams, eels, and more...our kids had a blast! We enjoyed making s'mores and sitting by the fire pit, playing family games, listening to records, and watching movies after long, action-packed excursions in Acadia, Bar Harbor and beyond. Other favorites included discovering the Bar Harbor Farmer's Market on Sunday morning, popovers and hiking at Jordan Pond, Bass Harbor Lighthouse/Trail, Thurston's Lobster Pound (wow!), shopping in Southwest Harbor, and Echo Lake/Cadillac Mountain adventures. We created countless memories at this lovely home in Maine. Shirley and George are extremely responsive owners, easy to communicate with, and extremely thoughtful as they even had a welcome gift to greet us when we arrived. I would highly recommend this property for anyone wanting to experience everything Bar Harbor/Acadia has to offer, while simultaneously enjoying the privacy and solace of a secluded, beautiful waterfront property."

  • Great Stay

    "Just returned from a 2 week stay and we loved it. The 2BR unit has 2 queen beds and all the amenities you could ask for. The owner was extremely responsive to our questions, since this was our first trip to Maine and there were many brochures of the area in the condo. We would definitely rent again. A trip to Acadia should be in your"bucket list". Recommendations: Fishermans Inn for dinner, Chases for breakfast and Gerrittsons for that midday ice cream. Do not miss Chapter Two in Corea for some unique items."

  • PERFECT GETAWAY!!!

    "This was our first trip to Maine, AND our first time using vrbo. I feel incredibly fortunate. The house was perfect - and right on the water. We spent so much time on the porch enjoying the sights and sounds of the harbor. The location is far enough from "all the people" yet close enough to do whatever you want to do. Acadia is about a 15 minute drive, along with Bar Harbor. It was a fantastic location to wind down and get away from the daily routine. The house is fully equipped and we had everything we needed. The owners are fantastic and just an email/call away if you have any questions. Thank you for allowing this home to be available for renters. Highly recommended!"
