Recent Acadia reviews

  • Our Winter Retreat

    "We have enjoyed Paul's cottage for our last seven February vacations. Mt Desert Island in the winter is fantastic! A day cross-country skiing or snowshoeing in Acadia is scenic and beautifully quiet. Returning to the cottage each afternoon and enjoying the fireplace, warm beverages, water views, sunsets and seabirds visible right outside the cottage window is heavenly. Sleeping in the loft bedroom, watching the moon, stars and lighthouse beacons is as romantic as it gets. Paul's cottage has everything you need, Kathy is extremely helpful, and we will keep returning to this amazing location. The pictures show it all except the tranquility of winter. We do recommend Paul's cottage to our friends but only if they promise not to compete for our week!"

  • Great Rental Home

    "We (10 of us-5 adults/5 teenagers) just spent a week at this property and absolutely loved it. It was a perfect place for the whole family. We loved the pool, the tennis court and the waterfront views. The house was very clean, spacious and offered everything that we needed. The owners are friendly and answered any and all of the questions that we had. I would highly recommend this property to everyone."

  • Great summer vacation get away

    "We were looking for a 4 week experience on the upper Maine coast. Winter Harbor turned out to be just the ticket. Great biking trail along the coast in the Schoodic Penisula portion of Acadia National Park. Could ride from our residence to the park. Several nice hiking trails there as well. Often times we biked to the hiking trails, then biked home. About a 45 minute drive to Bar Harbor, which we visited twice on week days to avoid the weekend crowds. Close to Bar Harbor is the largest section of the Acadia National Park. We hiked and biked there several times with world class scenery all around. We don't kayak but noticed lots of that as well. Winter Harbor is a quaint town with several good restaurants, and various other shops. Our residence was very nice and exceptionally clean. All the beds were very comfortable. Located on a dead end street with a small park with nice playground equipment across the street for the kids. The kitchen is very small, with only a microwave and a small toaster oven. We adjusted accordingly and this amounted to only a minor inconvenience. There are some mosquitoes in the area, particularly on certain hikes. Nothing major, just bring a little spray for occasional use. Really enjoyed the owners as we shared several “happy hours” together enjoying the beautiful weather. Would highly recommend this for anyone who enjoys the outdoors."

  • Amazing Tranquility! Everything you could possibly want from a relaxing and scenic break...

    "This is a unique and special getaway location, set back in an untouched part of the world. The property is custom designed by the owner and is meticulously laid out. It boasts panoramic views of the Bagaduce River. This along with the amazing tree lines and forestry give you a complete sense of peace and tranquility. The property is setback on a dirt road through beautiful forestry where you will see natural wildlife. It is completely private, you will not see or hear anyone until you visit the local town! The property has everything you will need and the real fireplace is a very nice effect! The local village, Bluehill, again has everything you will need including great places to eat and an information center (chamber of commerce) to point you in the right direction for what ever excursions you have planned. There is also a blue hill co-op, an amazing wine tasting venue that also sells great cheeses and sausage meats. There is also a local brewery called Strong Brewery which is a very small boutique brewery. Get there early on days they are open as they run out quick! Cadillac mountain is a must visit and has endless trails for hiking all with breathtaking views. Sunsets and sunrises can be appreciated from the top of the mountain. Bar Harbor is a quaint town by the water which is just a lovely place to visit. There is a great store in town which is good for equipment for hiking and outdoor activities. Paddy’s irish pub serves a great breakfast after sunrise, to keep you going for the days activities. Trenton bridge lobster restaurant is located on the road from bluebell to bar harbor and has the best lobster in town. Atlantic brewery is located about 10 miles outside from Bar Harbor and has great tasting beer. The owners are just lovely people and are extremely accommodating and have a great team of staff on hand locally. Bluehill farmers market runs from May through October, however these are mostly local vendors and you can visit these most year round in their stores. There are also local hikes you can do which are challenging and exciting! Harbor vine restaurant has an amazing menu and also brews their own beer. The cottage is also equipped with a lot suggestions of things to do in the area. All in all, this is a place you will fall in love with. The area just has a feeling I cannot describe, you just have to go there to experience it. You will leave behind all the stresses and strains of every day life, be at peace, and enjoy every minute of it!"

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.
