we once again had a marvelous time at the Acadia - fall colors, hikes, soaks for tired muscles and fabulous lobster-everything dinners.

Fantastic Week!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week at The Acadia. The website pictures cannot capture the amazing views from the house and deck. The house is light and bright and was perfect for our family of 4. We loved the hot tub, fire pit and enjoyed the secluded location. The only visitors were some deer and birds. The house was very clean and very well stocked and it is in a great location for exploring Mt. Desert Island.

We enjoyed our stay at The Acadia. The cottage was in close proximity to everything we wanted to do and we enjoyed the amenities. The scenery was beautiful.

Another wonderful stay at The Acadia!

  • 5 of 5

This is the sixth year in a row that we visited The Acadia. We always look forward to the hot tub, well-stocked kitchen and most of all- the magnificent views and seclusion. When the crowds come to MDI at the beginning of July, we really appreciate being on the "quiet side" of the island. There is plenty of hiking, biking, and good food there. Bar Harbor is just 15 minutes away if we want to be in the middle of the hustle and bustle. We can't wait to return!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with the property. The description listed was very accurate. The addition of the washer and dryer was an added bonus. We had a few issues that were taken care of quickly by the owner. The owner was very friendly and helpful. We appreciated having the list of recommendations of things to do, restaurants, etc. We would love to return and stay at the Acadia. Thank you!!!

A Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The Acadia Cottage was perfect for our stay in the area. It was clean, cozy and had everything we needed and then some! Its perch up on a hill offers great views and lovely breezes. Other than the owner - who we met upon arrival - we never saw another person while at the cottage. The location is absolutely perfect - away from the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor (just a 15 minute drive away) and close to the lovely little village of Southwest Harbor. Make sure you spend some time in the shops and restaurants there - CODA, Beal's Lobster, and Quietside Cafe (for ice cream) were our favorites. Be sure to do the Acadia Mountain hike for views that can't be found in the national park. We look forward to being able to stay here again!
