About Cliff Lane
Hello welcomed guests to our and your Acadia House! My name is Cliff Lane, your Inn Keeper. I have spent time here in this beautiful part of Maine for many years. I, just like you, came here to vacation in this treasured place for many reasons. The profound beauty of this area is breath-taking and amazing! I found myself returning many times because of its unsurpassed beauty and unspoiled simplicity of life. I began to realize we enjoyed it so much that we recently decided to relocate to the immediate area and make Maine our new home.
Cliff Lane purchased this Chalet in 2016
Why Cliff Lane chose Trenton
In giving this a lot of thought, I had the idea to share the joy of welcoming people from all over the world to this lovely place where you can leave the cares of life behind you and refresh and renew your perspective on life while experiencing afresh all its simple joys. It's a place where you can explore and make new discoveries while building memories with family and friends that last a lifetime. In choosing this property I had the savvy budget-minded traveler in mind who likes to have close access to all the fun and enjoyment of the immediate area while saving their dollars to be used on what they really came here for rather than spending their money on high Island lodging costs and overly crowded spaces. Due to the unique location of this property it offers our guests the benefit of walking to the authentic Maine Lunch and Dinner Lobster Pounds to experience this regions full array of exquisite seafood delights all within a short walk (1 to 5 minutes) from your own front door. There are 3 of these Lobster Pounds right within immediate reach of this house and its unique location. You may want to try them all as I have. I would be happy to make any recommendations. Nonetheless, The Acadia House affords you options as you are welcome to stay and eat a meal in as the lobster pot awaits you here with all the tools and amenities you need to enjoy your own authentic Maine live lobster right on your own outside deck. After dinner, enjoy your evening out as you are only a 20 second car ride to the Trenton Bridge which leads you directly over the Harbor to Mount Dessert Island giving you access to all its current activities and amenities for a fun-filled night! This Chalet has traditional Maine style Moose and Bear décor, and it is tastefully furnished and rustically inviting. The rich pine interior makes it a cabin-like lodging experience--one that I believe you will truly enjoy as it provides both a cozy and comfortable living space on about 1 acre of land.

Perfect little cabin for my husband and I to stay in for a few days while visiting Acadia National Park. It was our first time to visit and we loved the cabin and the location, which was convenient to the park without all of the traffic in Bar Harbor.
Thank you for your positive feedback. I couldn't agree more that this home location is truly unbeatable and avoids so much of the area traffic yet gives quick access to anywhere you want to go and anything you want to do. Thank again for choosing The Acadia House for your Maine vacation destination. Please visit again!
Fall Break 2017
We had a great stay at the Acadia House. The location was convenient to everything we wanted to see. Cliff was a very helpful and gracious host. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone who is vacationing in the Acadia National Park area.
Thank you for your honest feedback. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay! It's a pleasure to provide a vacation home experience in such a great location.

If you decide to ever return for another Fall visit please book my home again and I will be happy to extend an additional 10% discount off of the current published rates. It's simply a way to say thank you for choosing The Acadia House as your Maine vacation destination!
Beautiful cabin, enjoyed the deck in the back away from traffic.
Great location for our first time in Maine. Close to everything. We were greeted with a beautiful basket from the owner.
Thanks so much for staying at The Acadia House. Now my secret is out that my valued clients get a special surprise when they come and stay. It's because I truly value those who chose The Acadia House as there are a lot of other options out there. I seek to provide a warm and inviting moose and bear themed cabin environment that feels like Maine on the inside. I'm happy you had an enjoyable time. Thanks again for choosing The Acadia House. Happy future travels!
A wonderful getaway!
We give this a strong 5 stars. Our host Cliff was gracious, responsive and non-intrusive. Great qualities for an innkeeper!
The home is exactly as advertised. The open space in the living room with a spiral staircase to the loft are just right. Everything was clean and inviting. We felt comfortable and right at home.
The location is a couple of minutes to the Trenton bridge. From there Acadia and the village for Bar Harbor are just down the road. Even before crossing the bridge you have a choice of lobster pounds nearby. Our two favorites are the Trenton Bridge lobster pound and the Lobster Pound and Real Pit BBQ.
We would happily return on our next trip to MDI, and would recommend this home to family and friends. Thanks to Cliff for making a great getaway!
Comfy bed, cozy space, close to everything you want to be around.
Clean, easy to navigate door code and their house policy. Very enjoyable, highly recommend.
Thank you so much for your helpful review of The Acadia House. I value your feedback personally and in behalf of all future guests to come. This location is a win-win for those who vacation here. It's a comfy and cozy space located in a very strategic place to enjoy everything that this Down East Acadia area has to offer. Thanks for being our guests! Our door is open to you when ever you would like to return to the area for another visit...
Wonderful Week at Acadia House
What a wonderful week we had at the Acadia House. It was quaint, well equipped and comfortable. It is perfectly located to enjoy the entire area which is exactly what we did. Also, take that 45 second walk to the lobster shack for some delicious food. Thank you to Cliff Land and his wife for opening up this precious house to us. Rarely have I experienced a homeowner that was so accessible to assist in any way that was needed. Wonderful trip!
Thank you for your wonderful compliments on The Acadia House. It has truly been my vision from the start to provide a vacation experience for my guests that offers a home interior with a true taste of Maine. This home location provides the perfect spring board to explore the Down East Acadia culture, cuisine and countless day trip activities while surrounded by the incredible beauty of the area.
I am so happy you enjoyed your stay! Safe travels to you always and thank you again for choosing The Acadia House. You are welcome to return anytime!
