  • Great experience all around!

    "My family (2 adults, 2 teenagers ages 17/15) just spent a week at the Boenau camp and we had a fantastic time. Bob and Stephanie are the most gracious hosts you could ask for! A couple of the high(est) points: The information they provide - cabin amenities, things to do in the area, tide patterns, where to eat, what to expect, what to bring, etc. - is unmatched. We felt perfectly prepared heading to Maine given the information they provided. But - on top of that - they answered every single one of my very.detailed.questions (!) - AND even did internet research on their own time based on the things we mentioned we wanted to do while we were there. They went waaay above and beyond to make sure we had all the info we needed. We've dealt with owners who put a small amount of information on their site and basically that's all you get. Not the case with this house. The house is wonderfully cozy and perfectly appointed. Never have I had as much at my fingertips without having to purchase it myself. Every cooking utensil you could possibly need. Paper muffin cups? Check. Kosher salt? Check. Binoculars to watch the wildlife? Check. Portable cooler for your outing? Check. Books, magazines and boardgames for entertainment? Check. The set up of the house is unusual - they spell it all out on their site - but basically the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms are included in an add-on to the house that is not accessible from inside the main house. In order to get to those bedrooms, you have to walk out onto the front porch. Kind of like a motel with exterior doors. For us, having 2 teenagers, it was perfect. They each had a room and all the privacy they needed. My husband and I could get up every morning, chat and have coffee without disturbing them while they slept. Our idea of a perfect vacation is to find a cool town, spend a few days there doing fun stuff, then retreat to a secluded house and have several days of down time. We've followed this model for the last 5 years and have used a VRBO cabin for each of our trips. This was one of the best experiences we've had. You can't ask for a better house for down time. It is wonderfully secluded with no other houses in sight and it is absolutely quiet. You walk out onto the back deck and have a perfect sunset view all to yourself and you feel like you are the only people on the earth. Bob and Stephanie are excellent hosts and just all around nice people. I highly recommend this cabin."

  • Winter Harbor Get a Way

    "Clean, well supplied, though not what we would call a cottage. Furnishings are a bit formal. Not a place for the young folk to run wild. Bathroom small, but the washer and dryer were great. Though we were not expecting a grill, we were happy to find a small Weber which we used 2 nights! We would recommend additional outdoor seating(currently 2 chairs), though the mosquitos will drive you in. Location relative to Winter Harbor, Schoodic Pennisula and Grindstone Neck was perfect! We biked and kayaked and ate a very affordable yummy meal at the Pickled Wrinkle. Bought lobsters at Corea Lobsterman's Coop...right off the boat! Looking for Maine not over run with tourists? Head to Winter Harbor."

  • Wonderful vacation spot!

    "We just returned from spending a week at this lovely home. It was our first time to Acadia and we absolutely loved it! We have 3 children, ages 12, 10 and 6. It was a perfect vacation spot as we could hike and bike as little or as much as we wanted. There were plenty of "easy" spots we could tackle as we had our 6 year old to consider. The home is equipped with anything we needed and so clean! We loved relaxing at the home when we weren't out hiking, biking or shopping. We actually enjoyed a day of rain we had so we could do a 1000 piece puzzle provided at the house. The house lends itself to relaxing. One of my favorite moments was sitting down by the water reading a book while the children collected sea shells and played soccer in the yard. The owner is very responsive and easy to work with. He even provided a list of recommended places to eat, shop and hike. Everything we tried from the list was top notch and the recommendations were appreciated! The only bad thing about our stay was the mosquitoes. They were very bad after dusk. I called it the Mosquito Apocalypse!! Make sure to take long pants/shirts and spray. I would recommend visiting this area and staying in this home in particular. We had such a wonderful family vacation and made memories we will treasure forever!!"

  • A Great Time At The Great Harbor Compound

    "If you are considering a trip to Maine and Acadia National Park put this property on your list of places to stay! Located on the "quiet side" of the Island, this property is a short distance away from downtown Southwest Harbor. You can walk into town for shopping, pie, or ice cream, or take a stroll to the end of the street to go deep sea fishing or sit down to a Lobster feast. You can ride your bike around town, play tennis nearby, walk to hiking trails, or kayak from the dock. It's all here! Additionally, if you want to check out Acadia National Park you are only a short drive (or bus ride) away from fantastic hiking, biking, fishing, kayaking, and swimming options. The property itself is an interesting collection of buildings that are well furnished and contain everything you will need for a great vacation. Our family rented out the entire Compound for the week and found it to be the perfect place from which to stage our adventures or to just hang out at the house(s) and enjoy the beautiful view of Southwest Harbor. The owners, Jon and Nancy, were exceptionally helpful in suggesting fun activities for our entire family to enjoy. We were particularly grateful to have access to multiple kayaks and a canoe to enable everyone in our group to enjoy time exploring on the water. Additionally, Jon and Nancy were very helpful in answering questions about the property and in attending to an issue that came up with one of the TVs in the house. If you are looking for a great place to stay near Acadia National Park we would highly recommend this property."

Acadia Travel Tips

Rocky Coastlines Abound by Acadia Vacation Rentals

Land and sea come together on the rocky coastline of Maine. Spend a week in summer enjoying the sights and sounds at Acadia vacation rentals. A spacious house with the ideal view of Bar Harbor, Bass Harbor or Somes Sound can be yours. You can find the perfect vacation rental with VRBO for your family reunion or family vacation. Acadia rentals offer you the chance to prepare your own fresh lobster dinners on your private deck or watch the sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean while having your breakfast. There are plenty of amenities to make your stay more enjoyable, such as comfortable beds, large living areas and room to relax indoors or out.

Acadia National Park is Minutes Away From Acadia Lodging

You and your family can visit Acadia National Park to see the 54 square miles of Mount Desert Island. This fantastic island is the largest rock-based island in the Atlantic Ocean region. These rounded domes have been around for centuries with summits that are clustered with pine, spruce and fir trees as well as a profound profusion of wildflowers. Bird-lovers will find a large variety of birds within the park’s boundaries so do not forget to bring your binoculars. Guests of Acadia rentals can visit the park throughout the year with the exception of a two-mile section along the ocean during the winter.

With a fully equipped kitchen, you will be able to pack a picnic lunch so that you can hike some of the 125 miles of trails. If you are so inclined, there are horse-drawn carriage rides that are available from mid-June to early October. Otherwise, you can indulge your passion for fresh sea air by biking or taking a walking tour. Park rangers are on-hand from late spring to early fall to provide information on the area. After a delicious dinner, bring the family to a campfire program where you could learn about marine life, history or wildlife. You can even take a cruise around Frenchman Bay and the Cranberry Islands to get a great perspective from the water. A seven-day pass is the perfect accompaniment to your wonderful Acadia lodging reservation.

Acadia Travel Means Shopping and Restaurants

What could be better than a fresh lobster dinner while you are on vacation in Maine? You may decide you do not want to cook this feast yourself but dine out at one of the many restaurants in the area. There will be many that fit anyone’s budget and they do not all serve seafood. The restaurants in the Down East and Acadia region feature fresh ingredients with simple to extravagant cuisine. If you tire of seafood, you can find pasta, pizza, steak, and lighter fare such as salads and soup. One of the most popular and well-known restaurants in the area is the Atlantic Brewing Company in Bar Harbor. The estate is also located in Bar Harbor so you can see how the beer there is made.

Shopping is another leisure activity that can be enjoyed while staying in Acadia vacation rentals. Whether you are looking for a gift or want a memento of your time together in this amazing place, you can find it. If you have come away without the proper clothing or just want something new for your wardrobe, visit the Black Sheep Trading Company. This great store has hand-woven sweaters, moccasins, slippers or sheepskin items. If you want to indulge in a sweet confection to top your morning English muffin, visit Nervous Nellie’s Jams and Jellies. Maine crafts are abundant at Maine-ly Made Gifts where you can bring home items that remind you of the sea. Bookstores, artisans and artists all display their wares in the Acadia area.

Choose the Best Time to Visit Acadia

Many people love to visit the seashore in the summer when the weather is at its most cooperative. You need to plan ahead to secure the Acadia vacation rental that will provide you with a great view and space that you want for your family. There are many homes, seaside cottages and condos to choose from. If you are not committed to a summer vacation, you can find some great deals in the off-season. Whenever you are able to visit the Acadia area though, you will find a flawless accommodation to rejuvenate your body.
