Recent Acadia property reviews

  • Our favorite two weeks of the year

    "This past September was our second two week rental of Sweetfern Meadow. It doesn’t take long to feel at home in this beautiful house. The house is sited on 5 acres of pine trees offering complete privacy and has all the amenities of home with an abundance of space. We particularly enjoyed eating lunches outdoors (excellent gas grill) as well ending our day around the fire pit in the evening. The property is ideally located on the Island. A five minute drive to the best Lobster Pound (Trenton), 15 minutes to the heart of Bar Harbor, 10 minutes to Eagle Lake and the Carriage Roads in Acadia Park. I’m making my reservation for 2014 now!"

  • Willowbrook

    "Wonderful old house !!! Property is great for dogs and kids and the porch has a gate that closed so we could sit and have coffee without tying the dogs out. Great location for heading out on adventures all over the island. Each family could take their own space or enjoy each other's company. Kitchen had everything we needed...even for a lobster dinner! Landlord was wonderful!"

  • As Beautiful as Staying in the National Park

    "We stayed in Grace's cottage in Sept 2013, and had a wonderful time. The cottage is so close to so much, but on the other hand, why go anywhere when the view at the cottage is as spectacular as any in the National Park. Her dock is overlooking the beautiful bay, with the mountains in the backdrop - a million dollar view that you can spend the entire meditating over. If you do want to go to Acadia park (our reason for being in the area), it is a very easy drive, and once there, the Rangers have so many programs to keep you amazed. And if you want to stay closer to home, there are many quaint towns, farmer markets, and sights to see. And did i mention the great lobster? The cabin has all you need, and is very clean. We would recommend this cabin to all. We will be back."

  • western way

    "My family of four stayed here for a week in July. The condo was beautiful and immaculate! We did not have to bring anything with us except food. The location could not have been better. The view of the harbor was perfect. There are so many cute shops and restaurants within walking distance and bar harbor was only about a 15 minute drive. Acadia national park was also a short drive away...maybe 15 minutes as well. This was our first trip to Maine and it was one of our favorite vacations of all time. We feel very fortunate to have found this condo because it was a big part of why our vacation turned out so great. We definitely want to come back."

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.
