Recent Maine reviews

  • Clean & comfortable

    "Our family stayed here during our 1st trip to Maine. The house was very clean and nicely decorated. The beds were all comfortable and the kitchen had pretty much everything you needed if you decided to cook while there. It was nice to have a comfortable, quiet place to go to at the end of the day after being busy exploring all of MDI during the day. There were some great restaurants in town and all the major attractions are within 1/2 hour away."

  • Perfect place for our family vacation!

    "We had a wonderful time staying at this property. My husband, 14 month old son and parents stayed for the week with two dogs and other family members visited for a day or two throughout the week. It was a perfect spot for us. The cottage is lovely - clean, well-stocked, cozy, and in a great location (about 3/4 of a mile from the ferry landing, the grocery store, a couple of restaurants, ice cream, etc.). We enjoyed being so close to the beach and my son had fun playing in the sand. We also spent lots of time on the porch and back deck - both really nice features of the house. The only advice I would pass on is that families with young children will want to think about a baby gate for the top of the stairs. We have family friends on Peaks who loaned us theirs. The owners were very nice, helpful and responsive throughout the entire experience (and before we located a baby gate actually referred us to a Peaks Island listserv we could use to see if someone had a one we could borrow). It was my first time using VRBO and it was a great experience! I highly recommend this cottage!"

  • picture perfect!

    "This is the perfect place to stay for a beach vacation. We loved it. It is the absolutely most adorable cottage located right across the street from a public beach walkway. Literally 2 minutes to the sand! And even better, it is at the less crowded end of Old Orchard so that you get the benefit of all the excitement and activity of Old Orchard central, but you have the quiet and privacy of being at the most lovely Pine Point end of the beach. And lots of free parking right there. The perfect place to stay for an OOB vacation."

  • Perfect summer weekend getaway!

    "My husband and I went with a few friends to Bethel for the 4th of July weekend getaway this year! The house is amazing and comfortably slept our 8 guests. We loved the screened in porch and the large kitchen table that would seat everyone for dinners and game night! The house was super-clean and had all of the amenities we needed. It's walking distance to the cute town center as well as several bars and restaurants. Sunday River is a short drive and they had a lot of fun summer activities! We loved it there and would go back in a heartbeat!"

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.
