Recent Acadia reviews

  • Charm and Comfort in a wonderful setting

    "This is a great spot to do Acadia. It's right in the center of the park in a charming old village. Very well furnished and comfortable, more so than appears in the photos. The owners are very helpful and gracious."

  • Great place!

    "We (6 adults) came from Arizona, Virginia and Minnesota for a week of family fun. We found this house to have fabulous beds and a fantastic view. It's an attractive, comfortable home with a great kitchen too. We loved everything about it."

  • Fantastic!!!

    "As a child I spent summers on Little Deer Isle in Maine, and my wife and I have been coming for vacations for a number of years. We have rented cottages on Deer Isle, Mount Desert Island, and near Damariscotta. We had heard that Castine is one of prettiest towns in Maine and thought we would try it this year. The Castine village turned out to be one of the loveliest, most beautiful places we have ever visited. Because it is on a peninsula (it's almost an island) it has an old fashioned unspoiled quality that we have not found elsewhere. The village has a corner store, a charming library, and a boatyard. It also has a town green, predominantly white clapboard houses, churches, and old elm trees. There are forts from the revolutionary war. We took walks, went kayaking, and enjoyed the feel of the place. The Witherle Woods has great trails, and the town has only small streets that are better for walkers than drivers. The cottage was exceptional. It stands close to the center of the village and overlooks the harbor. We enjoyed sitting on the deck and watching the activity on the water. There were little sailboats with children taking sailing lessons as well as beautiful old classic yachts and schooners. The name of the cottage is spot on--watching the moon rise over the water was magical. The cottage itself is very comfortable, and it has a light, airy quality. It is thoughtfully and tastefully furnished, and there is an amazing view of the water from almost every window. We were looking for a comfortable place in a beautiful location. This exceeded our expectations. The cottage was really great, and Castine is unique. The convenience of being in a town where you can get supplies and walk everywhere, made for a relaxing vacation. We hope we can come back again next year."

  • Charming Get Away

    "My teenage daughter and I found this to be a perfect place to spend time together. This lovingly converted barn captured my daughter's imagination the moment she spotted it on line. The property was just as shown, very clean and lacking for nothing we could need in bath or kitchen. The loft bedroom and open floor plan worked beautifully for us allowing her to sleep late and me to enjoy browsing the "library". Felt very peaceful to be on Schoodic Peninsula where we enjoyed nature hikes and the gorgeous scenery. Easy drive to Bar Harbor for whale watching which was fantastic. This was a perfect place to stay rain or shine."

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.
