This vacation rental is very special! The cozy, warm feel of the place helps you to relax.

Some of the world's best sailing and boating waters are surrounding this area. The range of things to explore is endless. There is a little of everything cultural and sporty, safe and healthy. Acadia National Park is the smallest national park in the USA, but it is the fourth most visited national park. Most of the park is on Mt. Desert Island and it only has a 40 mile diameter but it is packed with delightful sea villages, rugged rockbound coastlines, sandy beaches, mountains (Cadillac Mt. with auto road), and exciting coves. Restaurants abound, shopping and galleries are all over the place. The natural beauty is the best part of this island, and it's uniqueness is world renowned!!!!

The first floor has a living room with vaulted ceiling, brick fireplace, and entertainment center with cable TV, VCR, and DVD player. Free internet WIFI services and phone services. Nicely decorated kitchen with NEW SPACIOUS PANTRY, expandable breakfast/dining table and custom tiled floors. There is a NEW finely furnished dining room. NEW FULL bathroom with washer/dryer are available on first floor.

The second floor has two bedrooms with a full bathroom in between them. One bedroom has a queen bed and the other has a set of twin beds. A single or double air bed can be made available for an additional guest upon request.

There is an outdoor picnic table and charcoal grill to enjoy the spacious front lawn area. A quiet and safe playground is a two minute walk away at the Acadia Oceanography Institute schoolyard. Welcome to our special rental!!!

Outstanding Vacation at Acadie Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 just spent 5 wonderful days on MDI at Acadie Cottage in Seal Harbor. A charming and beautiful home, Acadie Cottage had ALL the amenities and was in a perfect location : 10 mins to Bar Harbor and 5 mins to the Park Loop via an almost secret back road by Jordan Pond. Very peaceful and quiet which was a great escape from busier Downtown Bar Harbor. A beautiful yard with blooming flowers - a great place to unwind with family. In short, Rhonda Soucie's Acadie Cottage made for a delightful stay that was truly "sans souci"! Highly recommended! Hoping to return in the future!

Owner's Response: Hi! Bill: It is people like your family that make my rental so special!! Your kind and positive observations and experiences add to my aim to assist renters in having a fabulous Maine adventure! Acadie Cottage is a real relaxing getaway from the busy summer activities. So glad you enjoyed the place and hope you will come back anytime. "Sans Soucie" was a considered name for the cottage! Your family was great at helping to end your stay by pitching in and stripping the beds and starting a wash of towels and leaving the trash in the outside trash cans, and much more! Thanks again for taking such good care of my rental. Your family left such a light footprint. Have a fun summer and safe travels wherever you go! Best regards, Rhonda

Cozy home in great, quiet location

  • 5 of 5

This was a great affordable house for our two family vacation. The kids had their own little playroom off the living room (no adults allowed!) and there was plenty of space in the bedrooms. We walked or biked to Seal Harbor every morning with the kids and Jordan Pond was a short 5-10 min drive. The house was as pictured in the photos. It was nice to be able to head back to the house with takeout when we were all tired (kitchen is fine for 1-2 cooks but who wants to cook on vacation.) Rhonda made the reservation and arrival process extremely easy and accommodated our changes. We had a really great time in Acadia despite the bad weather.

One of the best rental home experience!

  • 5 of 5

Six of us, high school classmates of 68, had the best time in this lovely home. Rhonda had prepared everything for us, kitchen essentials, fire place, barbeque grills, on and on, many thanks.

Convenient location, only 5 minutes from Jordan Pond and Seal Beach and so quiet and peaceful neighborhoods....

LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS PLACE

  • 5 of 5

I can not say enough good things about this place. I am so thankful I found this place to stay at. Rhonda was such great help in answering any questions I had. The place is conveniently located to Bar Harbor and Seal Harbor but the great thing is you are at Acadia NP. The place was so beautiful from the antique furniture in the house to hardwood floors. I have not stayed in a nice place in sometime. Thanks for accommodating us on our travels North East. We look forward to returning.
