Recent Acadia property reviews

  • What a GREAT find!

    "Fantastic views! Sunset over the water, the islands in the distance, pine trees framing the picture perfectly. Peace and quiet, except for the gentle sound of bell buoys, lobster boats, birds, and the water lapping at the shore. The hosts are incredible,they def. go above and beyond. You can tell instantly that they went out of their way to make guests extra comfortable, the apt is impeccably clean, stocked by them with things you don't usually find in a Vacation rental, and tastefully decorated. There is a huge picture window, places to lounge around on , hammock, chairs at the shore, and couldn't be any closer to the lighthouse. The hosts were intuitive of our needs, friendly, but not intrusive, they honor your privacy. I am definitely coming here when we return to Acadia, only hope that too many people don't read my review and I can't get availability here! But I just had to write a good review, because these hosts absolutely deserve it!"

  • Charming house in perfect fall setting!

    "I stayed here for one week at the beginning of October (the perfect time to see all the beautiful fall leaves) and cannot say enough pleasant things about the house, the owner of the house, and the surrounding area. In all, the house held me, my wife, another couple and their toddler and a teenager quite comfortably. The kitchen was absolutely fantastic--plenty of room, beautifully appointed and far more supplies, pots and pans than any of us were expecting. And the wifi (which was incredibly fast) and washer and dryer were also very nice little bonuses that we enjoyed throughout the week. But the overall consensus seemed to be that the best part of all about the house was the gorgeous view. What better way to wake up every morning than by looking out of one's window and taking in the sea and mountains all in one view. Absolutely breathtaking! The owner, Claudia, was more than helpful and kind in the process leading up to renting the house, but also gave us lots of recommendations and help once we arrived there. All of her recommendations of things to do in South West Harbor and the surrounding area were spot on and ended up being some of our favorite things that we did on the trip. The house itself is also quite centrally located, which proved perfect for day trips to Southwest Harbor, Seal Harbor, Acadia National Park and the surrounding area, not to mention all of the restaurants, lobster pounds, bakeries, book shops and hiking trails all within a bike ride or 5 minute drive. Would highly recommend this lovely house to anyone and will definitely keep this little gem in mind the next time we return to Maine!"

  • Great cabin and very nice owners

    "It was our family's first trip to Maine. We live near Buffalo, NY, it was a long drive to get there and to make matters worse, we broke down on I-95 and had a 4 hour or so delay. It was so nice to get to this cabin after our long trip and see how clean, nice and inviting it was when we arrived. The cabin had many nice features such as the propane heater (it gets kinda cool there at night), the nice shower stall with on demand hot water and everything in a kitchen you could want or need!!! Thank you for letting us visit your cabin!! It is so beautiful in Bar Harbor, look forward to seeing you again sometime in the near future."

  • Great Family Time in the Off-Season

    "What an awesome place! Our family of 5 spent the week in this wonderful cottage and were SO glad that we stayed on the quiet side of Mt. Desert Island away from the tourism mecca, Bar Harbor. We witnessed beautiful sunsets, enjoyed kayaking and canoing the cove, played board games, drove over and ate great lobster in Bernard, and were still close enough to visit Bar Harbor, take the park loop road, drive up Cadillac Mountain twice, visit the Bass Harbor Light, bike the park carriage roads (renting from a small operation in SW Harbor), and taking some nice hikes. We enjoyed just relaxing during a couple of nasty rainy days, but had a blast during our late May, early June week. The cabin has all that you need in the way of pots, pans, dishes, spices, W/Dryer, watercraft, and best of all, views and seclusion. Thanks to the owners for a great experience."

Prospect Harbor Travel Tips

Prospect Harbor Vacation Rentals Offer Family Fun

Prospect Harbor is both a bay and a village in Gouldsboro, Maine. There are many outdoor activities to be had when staying in Prospect Harbor vacation rentals. They allow vacationers the freedom to bring as much recreational equipment as they want, as there is ample room to store it. Bring your bikes and take a ride on the Carriage Bike Trails. A hotel room doesn't have space for that, but Prospect Harbor vacation rentals do. Don't forget the water gear either. Head down to the bay for fishing, swimming, waterskiing, and more. Island Adventures Sea Kayaking can help your family have fun too.

Relax after a Long Day in Acadia Cottages

What could be more exciting than rock-climbing in Acadia National Park on a sea-cliff? Atlantic Climbing School can help you with this excursion. If you are not the outdoorsy type, then visit the Oceanarium and Lobster Hatchery. Your family will be amazed at the experience they have looking at the marine life up close. Then head to CJ's Big Dipper for excellent ice cream and gelato. With so much excitement, you will be glad you are staying in one of the many Acadia cottages rather than in a hotel.

Prospect Harbor Lodging Offers Unique Experiences

If you want to give your family a unique vacation experience, find Prospect Harbor lodging for your vacation on Unlike hotels, Prospect Harbor vacation rentals provide the amenities you find back at home, like full kitchens, spacious living areas, and secluded outdoor spaces. Why suffer through another hotel when Prospect Harbor vacation rentals are offered at similar prices? You can still have all the fun you would have had in a hotel, only much more.
