Recent Acadia reviews

  • Perfect

    "Perfect: location, amenities, views, and space. Gorgeous new bathrooms, lots of space for extended family to share and not be on top of each other and wonderful new beds and bedding. It has been a perfect place for our children and grandchildren to stay and explore the area. All this and clean to boot. One cannot write and share the views from the house, it is magical and to be experienced. Three cheers from our clan. it was great."

  • Idyllic Spot

    "My family and I have been coming to Wawenock every summer for the past ten years. The place is a gem! We love everything about it --the quirky, unpretentious kitchen, the family photos and paintings scattered about, the rippled glass in the windows, the assortment of wooden rockers and wicker perfect for curling up with a book. It's like stepping back in time to a world that moves more slowly. What a relief there are still some places that haven't been "improved" with needless updates! Wawenock has that traditional Down East charm that is timeless."

  • A perfect place in the woods

    "We have been making regular trips to Down East Maine for many years and a few years ago happened upon the beautiful and very tranquil retreat at Woods Pond in Blue Hill. Vicki has built a wonderful little house that combines the best of both worlds: tucked away in the woods on the lake yet readily accessible to all that Down East has to offer; all the important modern amenities while offering an escape from the usual hustle and bustle. While we look forward to hiking, biking, paddling, and enjoying the outdoors when in Maine, one can really do as much or as little as one wants from this perfect home base. Although the weather this past year was the best overall that we have experienced, we find when we are at Woods Pond that it does not make much difference in the end - if it rains, we just stay in and relax, read, cook, listen to music and the rain on the roof, even stroll around a bit or just sit on the porch. It is the perfect place to get away from it all and listen to the quiet. You will be welcomed warmly upon your arrival and given a quick introduction to the retreat. Vicki clearly loves this retreat and we are thrilled every year we go back that she has chosen to share the experience with us. Thank you, Vicki!"

  • Lake and National Park vacation combined

    "We (2 parents & 2 daughters in their early 20's) had a fantastic time staying at this home for a week to combine a lake vacation of kayaking/canoeing/blueberry picking with daily trips to Acadia National Park/Bar Harbor (about 55 minute drive). Green Lake is wonderfully VERY quiet. House is right on the lake with a dock and 12 private wooded acres.You don't hear or see anyone else. Kitchen and bathrooms were very well equipped and supplied and house has TV/DVD. Borderline cellphone/internet access (worked in certain areas in & around house) due to isolated vacation area. Boat rental company on the lake a few miles away delivered rented kayaks & canoe for the week. Nearest town, Ellsworth, about 20 minutes drive, is on the way to Bar Harbor, so we passed through it each day and could stop for supplies and once or twice stopped there for pleasant restaurants. (Of course, Bar Harbor has MANY restaurants/shops, and we would often have dinner on the way home from a day at Acadia). For larger groups, owner might want to consider a larger water heater. The house works well and the owner was very personable and accommodating. -A very enjoyable vacation, with most days busy at Acadia/Bar Harbor and restful time on/at the lake in mornings or evenings and one or two days."

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.
