Perfect location! Cozy with exceptional views!
I emailed the property manager with specific requests regarding the timing of my visit -- she quickly responded and was very accommodating to my needs.
The home is beautifully maintained -- very clean and spacious. The pictures do not capture the beauty of the property -- nicely secluded with spectacular views. This home was the perfect choice for my trip to MDI! And the hot tub was a special treat after running the local marathon!
Thank you for sharing your lovely home and property!
We agree that pictures cannot begin to capture the beauty here! And we work hard to accommodate our guests needs :)
Perfect for relaxing!
This was our second stay at the Acadia. The quite property is perfect to unwind and relax. The hot tub was a great way to start every day with coffee and end the day after long hikes and fires in the neatest fire pit I've ever seen. This place has everything you need to be comfortable. The sheets and mattress and comfortable. The kitchen is stocked well. The house is close to stores, Bar Harbor, breweries and restaurants, yet tucked away with tons of privacy!
Thank you again for a much needed time away!
Second Year - Perfect Again
This was our second year at the Acadia Cottage and it was perfect yet again. The cottage is spotless and has everything we needed and more for a relaxing week away. We enjoyed the hot tub every evening and used the fire pit one night in the fog. We saw multiple deer on the property each day and on the first day we saw an eagle and a fox too! It’s a short drive to Southwest Harbor where Beal’s offers the best lobster on the island. Be sure to take time to enjoy the “quiet side” – Beech Ladder Trail and Beech Mountain hikes were awesome. We honestly wouldn’t stay anywhere else which is why we are already booked for next year!
Peaceful property with gorgeous views
We just returned from a week stay in the beautiful Acadia cabin. When hurricane Irma forced us to bring our 14 month old on our anniversary trip we were pleased to find all the necessities that we needed! A pack n play and highchair were a major help. Star gazing in the hot tub every night after hiking was the highlight of our trip! We spent a lot of time just walking the property and wish we could have spent more time down on the dock. The house was clean and tidy and the washer and dryer was a great bonus. Perfect amount of seclusion while still being close to the park and many restaurants in the southwest harbor. Hopefully we will make it back some day to charming MDI!
fascinating property, beautiful view, comfortable house
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our week in Acadia staying at this perfect little house. We agreed that we could never tire of the spectacular views and the property had such an intriguing history to explore. Hikes and shopping were a quick drive, but when we felt like having down time, the quick walk to the dock for a swim, or even just relaxing in the yard were the perfect way to relax.
We loved it
Very scenic, relaxing, quiet, lovely place to stay in Acadia - close to everything you need to see in the park - close to Bar harbor - we were family of 5 with 3 kids and everyone enjoyed the stay - manager Becky and owner David very helpful and available - we loved the hot tub on the deck and fire pit with lots of wood available - overall excellent experience -
