  • 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."

  • Great Trip

    "First I will say that the house and the view are incredible. We arrived to a spotless house and that view won us over instantly. The seclusion of the property is also a huge plus. You don't hear a thing when you are there. You can just sit back on the deck and enjoy watching the fishermen, the waves, and just nature in general. The only negatives I have on this house were the couches and chairs in each living room. There were just not comfortable. One of the rooms has furniture you just sink into and the other has newer but uncomfortable seating. Everything outside of that is just amazing at this house. The bathrooms are updated and extremely nice. The bedrooms and beds were great. We slept 9 people here very comfortably and had a great time. The house, view, and just plain relaxing environment are incredible. I would recommend staying in this area and at this house!"

  • Great vacation week in this house

    "We just came back home after spending a week in this house. The house was just as described: well furnished and equipped. 3 bedrooms accommodated 7 people comfortably. Kitchen had all we needed. Electronics worked. Etc. WiFi Internet was pretty slow, Verizon phones had no reception, AT&T had good reception. Owner was very friendly and provided detailed descriptions and instructions about all aspects of our stay. Staying in the lakefront house has a lot of advantages. Hodgdon Pond is really beautiful and quiet, we barely saw or heard any neighbors. We used boats that are provided, it is easy to paddle around; went swimming and fishing (bought licenses). I also suggest taking a canoe out at night, I bet you haven't seen that many stars in the sky. My kids loved gazing for shooting stars and we were rewarded periodically even though it wasn't a meteorite shower time. I'm not going to list all attractions of Acadia NP that we visited, but want to recommend visiting Ship Harbor. It is an easy flat trail that runs along very pure, very "Maine" shore line and there is not a lot of people. It is about 15 minutes away from the house."

  • surry cottage

    "A perfect place. Beautifully equipped. Gorgeous views and delightful owners. Well situated for exploring Acadia National Park and the Blue Hill Penninsula. We especially appreciated the Vermont Castings wood stove, with wood supplied by John. Would rent this "cottage" - more like a house - again in a heartbeat. Clare"

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.
