Recent Acadia reviews

  • Comfortable, relaxing, and perfect!

    "I have been to Maine a few times, but had never made it to Acadia NP. I'm so glad that I was finally able to get the family up there, and that we found Acadie Cottage. It was perfect for the 5 of us. The cottage has more than enough space and is off the beaten path enough that you don't feel totally surrounded by people like you do in Bar Harbor itself. I have used VRBO several times and this was the simplest and easiest transaction yet. While I have never met, or even actually talked to Rhonda (only email), it was like staying at an old friends house. It was simply comfortable and relaxing to come back to the cottage after hitting it hard all day in the Park. We were on vacation for over 3 weeks throughout New England and Quebec, stayed at some very nice places, and this one was my families unanimous pick as our favorite of the trip. My family and I thank you Rhonda!"

  • Wonderful Family Holiday

    "We very much enjoyed staying in this property - so characterful and well equipped, and ideally located for us near the centre of MDI (you will need a car however). Beds were comfortable and the setting was very pretty. We will be back!!!"

  • Perfect base camp in Bass Harbor

    "Our second stay at the Ebb Tide with our pooch was as perfect as the first. Such a perfect location on the water in Bass Harbor. The house is wonderful with awesome views of the sunset from the house, patio with a fire ring, or chairs down at the water. It was so nice to have a quiet place to come back too and unwind after a day of exploring the wonderful hiking trails that Acadia National Park offers. Shelly maintains beautiful gardens around the house and has several bird feeders that attract lots of birds. The house is equipped with everything you need to make your stay enjoyable and if you do need something Shelly and Larry are eager to assist. We used the gas grill for half our meals, and enjoyed several local establishments in Southwest Harbor the other nights. Highly recommend "Eat a Pita" and the attached "Island Bar" for an awesome meal. Thurston's Lobster Pound is a 10 minute drive or use the canoe that comes with the house and paddle across the harbor and tie up at their dock to earn those steamers and beer! Many evenings we took a drive along the Seawall with walks at Wonderland Trail, Ship Harbor Nature Trail, and the Bass Harbor Lighthouse. We saw lots of deer each night we did this. The shower includes a floor to ceiling window that looks out onto the harbor - how many times do you get to enjoy a wonderful sunset while showering! There is a sun room off the master bedroom with a day bed that our pooch enjoyed - he could watch all the critters and keep us safe :) The house is very bright with lots of windows, but also in a very private setting. The hiking on Acadia is very similar to the terrain in the White Mountains of NH, just shorter peaks but with views of the ocean. Even though there were 2 or 3 cruise ships in Bar Harbor most days, we met very few people on the trails and had many summits to ourselves. Very enjoyable hiking! For dog lovers - dogs are welcome on most trails, but there is also an off leash dog park over by Seal Harbor where dogs and horses are welcome, but no bikes. It has a 5 mile loop along with other trails and a pond for the pooches to go swimming. Very worth checking it out. We highly recommend a stay at Ebb Tide - already planning a return trip next year."

  • All the comforts of home!

    "Patten Bay Chalet is everything we had read about and more. Dealing with Mac to secure the rental was so easy and attended to beyond what I expected. It was pleasant talking with the owner prior to our arrival. I informed Mac we were traveling with two chefs and that an equipped kitchen was a must. We were assured it was and that proved to be absolutely accurate. The home was perfectly sized for the seven of us. We had plenty of room to spread out as well as sufficient space to all hang out together. We had stayed on Mt. Desert Island last year and were unsure if we would be as happy on the mainland. We traveled back and forth to both locations with ease For anyone looking for a quiet, convenient, bright, well equipped house for a vacation, I would highly recommend this home. Thanks to Mac and Deb for a smooth rental process and for taking the time to check in and assure that it lived up to our expectations."
