Delightful Acadia Vacation Home
"Lodging at Acadia Getaway was a fantastic experience for our family of 5. It was our 2nd trip to Acadia and the location was just phenomenal! The home is just a short few minutes drive to one of the several Acadia Nat'l Park entrances, Eagle Lake carriage trail for biking, and beautiful downtown Bar Harbor. The beds were very comfortable and the home was very well equipped - the owners even had a baby backpack we used to get our little one up the hiking trails - very thoughtful! The washer and dryer was key - very important with kids! The home was exactly what I anticipated after seeing photos on VRBO - clean, cute and very cozy. We hope to be back as well as to recommend to many other family and friends in FL who have never experienced the treasure of Acadia!"

"Another great visit! The views are magnificent looking up at Acadia National Park across the water. The house is directly on the ocean with a dock. It was very roomy for a us with a large living room and wood stove. The town of Southwest harbor has a variety of stores and some excellent restaurants about 5 minutes away by car. Red Sky is a fantastic restaurant in the town - I'd really recommend that for the top night. There are numerous hiking trails in the area we used as well. We went to both Northeast Harbor and Bar Harbor - both an easy drive with great views on the way. The ocean here is unbelievably clear! Even had a harbor seal from the dock at night. A great vacation!"

"My husband and I, and 2 other couples just spent a week at this beautiful home and loved every minute. It is perfect because each couple has their own bdrm. and bath and the common areas are spacious and cosy. We were greeted with a gorgeous bouquet of lupine on the kitchen counter. The construction details of this home are amazing and agreeing with other reviews, the beds were very comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped(we only fixed breakfast), and the views will refresh your soul. We highly recommend "Il Bassino"!"

"We had a great time-it was sunny and pleasant the whole week. There were 8 of us, including our 3 adult children and their significant others. The house was lovely, just like the photos and very clean. The kitchen was quite nice and easy to use. The circulator bus into Bar Harbor stops across from the house and runs every 30 mins (every 15 afte 3 pm), but we also walked into town. Note that you must walk through the bunkbed room from the large bedroom into the hallway. But we expected this and it wasn't an issue. It was one of the best vacations we've ever had and made even better by staying at Highbrook."
