  • camp Soleil

    "We just returned from our wonderful vacation in Maine. We were fortunate enough to find Camp Soleil un VRBO. We have never stayed in a rental that was as well stocked as this one. Yes, the cabin is rustic but that is what we were looking for and the weekly price was more than reasonable. The screened porch was a wonderful place to sit and watch the wild life, sunrises and sunsets. One early morning, as we were on the porch with our coffee, a bald eagle flew into the tree directly in front of us. We had never seen one up close before and felt very lucky to be there at the right moment. We loved kayaking on the pond and listening to the loons at night. On a rainy evening I couldn't get the DVD player to work (my own ineptitude!) so the owner came over and set it up for us. He was extremely responsive to our needs and checked in to make sure everything was all right. We hope to be back to Camp Soleil again and have recommended it to our friends. Thank you, Dana, for a great experience. Kathleen and Tim. Wellesley MA"

  • Wonderful house, perfect location! Owners thought of everything!

    "My family of four adults and two dogs had a wonderful stay at the farmhouse the week of July 4. The house was just perfect, nothing too fancy and very cozy without being cramped. The owners thought of everything from coolers to kayaks for guests. The swimming pond nearby is awesome and the beach is great for dogs to swim in and wonderful for walks. The location is close enough to MDI and Acadia without having to be constantly surrounded by crowds. We loved being able to hike Acadia and then come home to a nice quiet house away from it all. Ellsworth also has some great places to eat, esp. the Union River Lobster Pot and the Riverside Cafe, so you don't always have to go to MDI for dinner. We will most certainly be back!"

  • A MUCH NEEDED VAKAY...

    "I can only say good things about our amazing week at the chalet. It is everything the owner said it is. Quaint, clean, well-stocked and so much more. We never spent sooo much time just sitting outside and gazing at the water. Even our dog seemed more relaxed. Acadia Park is also a must see. If you're a photography buff, this is the place to take a million pix. We had a few nites of a full moon. We were so concerned about the cottage not having A/C....again, the owner was right! No humidity= you don't even need a fan. THE ONLY THING I MISSED WAS SEEING A MOOSE AND I LOOKED EVERYWHERE!!!!"

  • Peaceful Paradise

    "My husband and I spent a weeks vacation here. After a 10 hour drive, the first thing we did was walk around to the lakefront, and when I saw the view, my relaxation began immediately. The pictures of the lake only give you a glimpse. BEAUTIFUL lakefront. We enjoyed fishing off the dock, we went canoeing, kayaking and paddlebooting, swan one afternoon, water was chilly and even at 77degrees, the air had a chill as well, we had a campfire a couple nights, the lake is so quiet at night and oh, so many stars. The cottage has such rustic charm, everything I needed was there. The beds were quite comfortable (the guest bungalow is perfect for afternoon naps). We took in the sights at Bar Harbor and Acadia NP, also the shops in Ellsworth, Finns' Irish Pub was an excellent lunch, the Main St shops were expensive but great window shopping. It just seemed, when we were out, we couldn't wait to get back to the cottage and enjoy the lakefront relaxation. We had beautiful weather for just chillin' outside. The sunsets here are gorgeous, took a picture every night because each was in its own way, beautiful. I would definately go back, next time bring some more people, we want to share our experience with others. All in all, we loved it here."

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.
