Recent Acadia reviews

  • The Real Maine

    "My goal in renting this lovely farmhouse was to create lasting memories for my husband, myself and family especially my six grandgirls. Corea is a "piece of heaven" and a secret that I would selfishly like to keep to myself but it must be shared. The farmhouse met every need and overlooking Corea harbor every morning brought a whole new meaning to a cup of coffee. Stephanie and Joe were extremely helpful in planning this rental and are not very far away if needed. When they remodeled the house they were so thoughtful in preserving the history of the house by displaying old pictures and materials found in the walls. My girls still talk about going to the island on the causeway collecting sandollars while knee high in salt water or going to the big Corea beach down the road. I think they are still combing seaweed out of their hair! This property lets you experience "the real Maine". My mission was accomplished."

  • comfy and spacious

    "We are enjoying our stay in this comfortable cottage. The view is great. Bass Harbor is quiet and low key and still allows you easy access to Acadia National Park, good restaurants and shopping. We appreciated the opportunity to stay in this well maintained cottage with our well traveled little dog. Enjoyed all the conveniences provided, the private parking and the wonderful deck."

  • Waterside Home in the Woods

    "My husband and I have been to Maine at least 12 times over the years, and we were lucky enough to stay at this house, along with another couple, on our most recent visit. What a perfect setting! It's tucked into the pine-scented woods, yet footsteps from the rocky coast. The house itself is bright, clean, uncluttered and well equipped. Soft sheets and fluffy towels, as well as all kitchen necessities, are supplied. Highlights of our visit include sitting on the deck, sipping coffee at sunrise and wine at sunset; watching bald eagles and ospreys circle above throughout the day; spotting a seal swimming in the cove at high tide, coming up for air and then going back down again; sitting on a rock at the water's edge at low tide, reading a book and blissing out; buying soft-shell lobsters in Stonington and steamers up the road, cooking them up and feasting at the dining room table, with a backdrop of woods and water out the windows. We were lucky enough to be visiting on a couple of clear, moonless nights. The view of the star-filled sky through the skylight right above our bed (in the upstairs room) was amazing; one night we saw three meteors before we finally fell asleep. Also, the upstairs bathroom has some beautiful, very happy houseplants, and the shower is wonderful--roomy, with big windows (don't worry, no one can see inside). Be sure to drive slowly on the unpaved road leading to the house. On our second day, a neighbor called because she feared we were exceeding the 10 mph speed limit. Also, the wi-fi is so slow that we called in "no-fi" and cell reception is only slightly better. But that's okay, as long as you realize you're here to relax and unplug, not to work remotely. There's satellite TV, but it had few offerings and was difficult to figure out (maybe that's just us?). No premium channels, difficult to even find any national news. But there are plenty of excellent books on the shelves, board games to play, naps to take... The only thing that spoiled our tranquility, I'm sorry to say, were the neighborhood dogs. They barked pretty consistently and their voices echoed from around 5:30 a.m. to late at night. We tried to tune them out, but... I would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking for a wicked good time in Maine!"

  • Fantastic Place To Stay with easy access to Acadia

    "Apple Cottage was wonderful and the perfect place for a family of four to stay. The cottage was immaculate! Views from the deck and property of the Cranberry Isles were excellent. At low tide we enjoyed finding sand dollars right off the property. Owner was responsive, very friendly, and clearly loves Mount Desert Island. She made excellent restaurant and hiking recommendations. Southwest Harbor is a lovely community with nice options for eating-out or picking up necessary supplies. If you stay at Apple Cottage you will be happy that you did."

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.
