Recent Acadia reviews

  • Perfect stay

    "Windiana ist a very well maintained property, clean and with a perfect location for a relaxing vacation. We have been there mid October, in summer time it must be even better when you can use the canoe and the kayaks they provide. We would love to come back another time and can highly recommend this property and the owner. Even though we could only contact by E-Mail, she was very helpful and responsive, thanks."

  • Perfect spot of Fall in Acadia

    "Rugosa is a beautiful and peaceful cottage minutes from Acadia and a perfect place to welcome Fall each year. Rugosa is a perfect, yet simple, home-away-from-home for a week and I always look forward to walking through the front door at the start of our week. From early mornings down by the water, exploring what the tides brought the night before, to tucking in by the fire on a chilly early Fall evening, the space is warm and inviting. We've been bringing our kids since one was a year and a half and the other a baby. For years when afternoon naps are essential, the cottage location is perfect to spend a morning in the park and be back in time for a nap in the afternoon. Otherwise, it is so nice to only have a short drive back after a day of putzing around Bar Harbor or hiking and biking Acadia. My family enjoys meals overlooking the water and watching the sunset while cooking is a special treat. This cottage is a perfect spot to be with each other and soak in the natural beauty of a place as special as Mt. Desert Island--it makes for a truly memorable week and one that I look forward to each year."

  • Very clean charming waterfront home that fit our family well. Pet Friendly too!

    "We loved all the room to spread out and the large yard for our dog to be able to run and get some exercise too! The house is very clean and well stocked. We found everything we needed. There are two bedrooms upstairs and one bath. Downstairs is another bath, mud room, laundry room, living room/dining and a den. The furniture is comfortable and everything makes you feel right at home in "Maine". The only reason this didn't get a perfect 5 star rating from us was because of the closeness to the slightly busy street and the noise you hear very early in the AM from the lobster boats/fisherman. This is of no fault of the house or owner - and may not bother many. But, for us as light sleepers we had a few rough spots in our sleep. The views from the dining room and deck are amazing - we had a couple gorgeous sunsets similar the picture posted above. We brought high end kayaks and felt ok about leaving them beside the garage. It was great to load the kayak right into the harbor at the edge of the lawn- very convenient. We kayaked once at Echo lake but, mostly just paddled throughout the harbor and explored a little island. There a few restaurants down the street in 'town' and if you cross the harbor you find Thurstons- this place proved to be WAY too busy for us as many were lined up outside - not a good choice if you have a child... Southwest harbor a quick 10 min drive away has many more restaurants. We brought our dog along and he loved laying on the deck - there was a handy hose near the deck which was useful to wash the dog after a swim or a walk along the shore. Do be prepared for bugs - we used bug spray almost every night and I brought a citronella candle which we used as well. The shore is tidal and you can walk out quite a distance - we walked the shore daily and found many "treasures". My son became addicted to finding "sea glass" - I had to explain that the broken fresh glass is just trash and to look for only the frosted kind... let's just say we had a lot of "extra" LOL - but, my one of favorite things to do since being a child and visiting my grandparents in Searsport... If you want to explore Acadia and the Down East - but don't want the hussle bussle of Bar Harbor then this would be a good option for you. We prefer quite nights and peaceful surroundings. Paul, the owner is very accommodating and very quick with any questions/concerns you may have. Thank you for sharing your vacation home with us!"

  • Delightful in-town cottage

    "We found this house to be very comfortable. It is extremely close to the main street in Northeast Harbor, where there is a grocery, bakery, cafe, and plenty of shops to explore. The bus to Acadia and Bar Harbor runs right past the house. The house itself is bright and airy with high ceilings. It has a lovely deck and we ate outside several times. The beds were extremely comfortable with high quality linens. The layout is a little interesting, with one bedroom upstairs and the others downstairs, which allowed for a private hideaway. The kitchen, though smallish in terms of work surfaces, was well equipped with decent knives and ample glassware, dishes and pots/pans. The bathrooms are a bit old-fashioned (the kids got a kick out of the separate hot/cold water faucets)."
