Recent Acadia property reviews

  • Charmer in Blue Hill

    "Our family of five rented this house along with another family. Our group consisted of four adults and six children ranging in age from 7 to 15. This house served as our base of operations for our 2013 summer vacation in Maine. The house was large enough to comfortably accommodate all of us. There were plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms, with plenty of linens. The house also had a dining room table that allowed all of us to sit together for meals. There was a large side yard for the children to play in and also a closet full of board games to keep them occupied. The porch was a favorite place to sip on a beverage while enjoying the breeze off the bay. Blue Hill was a great place to vacation. We were not too far from hiking in Acadia and Blue Hill, shopping in Bar Harbor, and exploring all of the little towns, coves, and hidden treasures the area has to offer. The owner was fantastic. She was very friendly and helpful. She gave us local hints regarding shopping and dining, she provided tips regarding hiking in Blue Hill and Acadia, and she even helped us find the best place to get local lobster."

  • A wonderful rental!

    "We recently spent a week at this home along with our dog. We couldn't have asked for a more comfortable home in a beautiful setting. The view of the harbor was great and the gardens were lovely. Everything possible was provided and not just starter supplies. When it got unexpectedly hot Shelley bought extra fans to make it more comfortable. She was always eager to offer tips and suggestions for activities. There are plenty of good restaurants nearby without going into Bar Harbor. There are good hiking opportunities nearby as well. I would highly recommend this property. We use vrbo frequently and this was one of the best homes and owners we have encountered."

  • Great experience all around!

    "My family (2 adults, 2 teenagers ages 17/15) just spent a week at the Boenau camp and we had a fantastic time. Bob and Stephanie are the most gracious hosts you could ask for! A couple of the high(est) points: The information they provide - cabin amenities, things to do in the area, tide patterns, where to eat, what to expect, what to bring, etc. - is unmatched. We felt perfectly prepared heading to Maine given the information they provided. But - on top of that - they answered every single one of my very.detailed.questions (!) - AND even did internet research on their own time based on the things we mentioned we wanted to do while we were there. They went waaay above and beyond to make sure we had all the info we needed. We've dealt with owners who put a small amount of information on their site and basically that's all you get. Not the case with this house. The house is wonderfully cozy and perfectly appointed. Never have I had as much at my fingertips without having to purchase it myself. Every cooking utensil you could possibly need. Paper muffin cups? Check. Kosher salt? Check. Binoculars to watch the wildlife? Check. Portable cooler for your outing? Check. Books, magazines and boardgames for entertainment? Check. The set up of the house is unusual - they spell it all out on their site - but basically the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms are included in an add-on to the house that is not accessible from inside the main house. In order to get to those bedrooms, you have to walk out onto the front porch. Kind of like a motel with exterior doors. For us, having 2 teenagers, it was perfect. They each had a room and all the privacy they needed. My husband and I could get up every morning, chat and have coffee without disturbing them while they slept. Our idea of a perfect vacation is to find a cool town, spend a few days there doing fun stuff, then retreat to a secluded house and have several days of down time. We've followed this model for the last 5 years and have used a VRBO cabin for each of our trips. This was one of the best experiences we've had. You can't ask for a better house for down time. It is wonderfully secluded with no other houses in sight and it is absolutely quiet. You walk out onto the back deck and have a perfect sunset view all to yourself and you feel like you are the only people on the earth. Bob and Stephanie are excellent hosts and just all around nice people. I highly recommend this cabin."

  • Beautiful WATERFONT Location/Property!

    "Location! Location! Location! Gorgeous WATERFRONT VIEWS! Huge yard/property. Very private. Lots of WATERFRONT BEACH to play on/with. Kayak in cove, clamming, fishing, bird watching, etc... Close to everything!- Acadia Park-Hulls Cove entrance, Bar Harbor, great shopping, restaurants (I'm a HUGE foodie), antiquing, galleries & supplies, great lobster pound you can walk/bike to! around the corner!, FIRE PIT (AWESOME!), see the milky way, watch fog rolling over Cadillac mountain in distance, sunrises (night owl, myself, maybe black out curtains? I'm just sayin') and on and on... Owners very responsive to requests/questions and quick to resolve any issues. Also very nice to deal with. :) My must do list: 1. Trenton Bridge Lobster Pound, owners super nice! They also have beer & wine! Their Lobster Sandwich beats a roll any day! Great bread! 2. Able's Lobster Pound on way to Northeast Harbor-LOCALS!!! 3. Shaw Contemporary Jewelry Gallery, Northeast Harbor-Wow! 4. A Little Mad Gallery, Bar Harbor-Really fun! 5. Havana Restaurant, Great hip food. Awesome fresh oysters. 6. Jordan's-Wild Blueberry Pancakes, Bar Harbor-everyone goes there for a reason! 7. Side Street Cafe, Bar Harbor-worth the price, hip, cool vibe. Lobstah Chowdah a must!!-only huge chunks of lobster, butter, sherry and cream. 8. A & B naturals for Gluten free/organic stuff, conveniently located across from Hannaford in Bar Harbor. 9. Last, but certainly not least, Jordon Pond House in Acadia Park. Yes, it's tourist trap but those darn popovers are really worth it- so is the view!!! Accurate amenities, only caveat...I'm a real neat freak! Sorry! Washer/Dryer in cellar-lifesaver! Sooo, 4 stars because place is a bit cluttered BUT it is a home for them also, so please take that into consideration. Great for couples, small families, romantic getaways, great for loner like me who was there for 2 weeks, hard for larger groups maybe. Other than that a wonderful, peaceful, beautiful place to stay and I loved the collection of antique teacups for morning tea on the great porch overlooking the water...Ahhh...cant wait to get back! Thank you for sharing your home with me! Hope to bring the family next time as was originally planned. Happy Travels! Lynn"

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.
