Recent Acadia property reviews
"We enjoy our annual visits to this secluded home with its wonderful views across Herrick Bay. The home is private, quiet and a world away from the harried existence we live in the “real world”. Waking up with a yard full of wild turkeys or sighting deer on the property reminds us that coastal life at Sea Nest is a treasure. Located a short distance from Brooklin, this comfortable home is nicely furnished and provides ample space for you to share your holiday with family or friends. The nearby Wooden Boat School offers views of traditional, moored sailboats while walking the scenic grounds. The local roadways serve as peaceful bike trails. The Brooklin/Blue Hill area hosts a wide variety of outdoor activities, local restaurants, art galleries and local shops for your enjoyment. Sea Nest provides a unique escape from metropolitan living."Guest: Kalik Date of Stay: September 2011 Review Submitted: February 4, 2012View listing
"This was our first visit to Maine. Luckily we found this log cabin available for one week in August. Sadly we had only one week. We could have spent the entire summer at this gem. The cabin and the setting are amazing. We enjoyed every moment. We took daily trips to Acadia Park, hiking on trails. The evenings we spent on the beach, watching the crabs in the water at high tide. Our last evening was truly unforgettable. We had high tide around 9pm. The water was so calm, as we have never seen. The sky was a wonder, with billions of galaxies in sight. My 8 year old son saw the Milky Way for the first time in his life. In this tranquillity the only noise was made by the seals bark on the nearby island. Thank you Laura and family for sharing this "piece of haven" with us. Your house is truly a place where one desires to return."Guest: Catalina P.

"We spent a week in early July at Danforth Cottage and had an absolutely wonderful time. The cottage is just so simple and so very comfortable. The location is fantastic. Could not have asked for a more wonderful location. We spent much of our time on the wonderful deck overlooking the beautiful Blue Hill Harbor. You can be in the sun if you wish but there are also some beautiful trees in the front of the house that help keep the deck cool and comfortable. And then there is the breeze off the water! We swam and kayaked right off the rocks and low tide beach in front of the cottage. We had ate at the cottage a few nights having lobster and grilled chicken. The Blue Hill Co-Op and Tradewinds grocery are great stores that are close by. We also had wonderful dinners out at both the Brooklin Inn and Arborvine. Our dinners at both restaurants were absolutely terrific. We are so looking forward to returning next year!"Guest: Mart Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: July 13, 2014View listing

Frenchboro Travel Tips
Frenchboro Vacation Rentals Offer a Peaceful Getaway
Located in Blue Hill Bay, Frenchboro is the perfect destination for those seeking a peaceful getaway from their everyday lives. One unique aspect of Frenchboro is that it is comprised of several islands. These islands are: Harbor Island, Crow Island, Long Island, Mount Desert Rock, Little Duck Island, Great Duck Island, Black Island, Placentia, the two Green islands, Drum Island, and Pond Island. Each island offers a friendly, small-town atmosphere, and there are several Frenchboro lodging options for you. One perk of choosing Frenchboro vacation rentals is that you will have much more privacy than a hotel, which will make you feel more at home during your trip.
Escape the Bustle
If you are looking to escape the bustle of life and want some privacy during your vacation, then Long island, which is one of the Frenchboro islands, may be a great choice. This town has a modest population but boasts brilliant scenery. This is one of the few historic fishing villages left in Maine, so be sure to plan some time for fishing during your stay with Frenchboro vacation rentals. You might want to bring your own fishing gear along on your vacation to store at your Frenchboro lodging when you aren't out on the water.
Sample the Local Flavor
A main attraction in Frenchboro is an annual Lobster Festival. This festival has been held in August in recent years and is a great opportunity to sample some delicious seafood while mingling with the residents that live near the Frenchboro vacation rentals. You may also want to dine out at Lunt & Lunt Lobster Company during your stay in Frenchboro. Lunt's is known for its seafood options but has limited hours so be sure to call ahead from the Acadia cottages before going there.
