  • The Perfect Getaway

    "We had an awesome visit. Rob & Marj were wonderful hosts in the cabin was perfect... just as described. We loved how peaceful and quiet the location was. Having direct access to the trails of Acadia National Park was wonderful. We spent our week enjoying the park, dinners in Southwest Harbor, and day trips to Bar Harbor."

  • Fantastic Place To Stay on MDI

    "My daughter and I usually camp when we come to MDI, but we wanted to try something different and also a bit warmer than a tent. Acadia Yurts went well beyond our expectation! The yurts are spacious, clean, super warm (and also offer AC when needed), and most of all fun. With a skylight above, you can see the trees and stars. The thick sides of the yurt provide greater protection than a tent, but still let you enjoy the sounds of the wind and rain. Karen and Aaron stock the yurt with all the basics you need to start your stay. And if you have something additional you need - you can check the community barn for other items (as well as laundry there too). There is communal fire pit, hammocks and grills for use and the entire place was peaceful and quiet during our stay. Acadia Yurts blow away any hotel options out there - particularly if you want to be close to nature. We had a blast and will definitely be back for another visit!"

  • Cozy, quaint cottage in an amazing location

    "We were absolutely thrilled with our stay at Maria's cottage. The property is exactly as advertised with a ton of great amenities and located very close to SW Harbor. Kitchen is fully stocked with every cooking apparatus you could need. Washer/dryer is a great bonus, especially with kids. To top it all off, the owners purchased a treat for me since we arrived on my birthday. Very thoughtful and definitely above and beyond what we expected. I would absolutely recommend staying at this property if you have young kids, a dog and like living close to the 'action' of SW Harbor."

  • Best of Both Worlds

    "Peg's Pocket on the “quietside” of Mount Desert Island, is a lovely cottage in Bass Harbor. Peg is the perfect host- very responsive, interesting and a joy to chat with. The cottage is lovingly and thoughtfully cared for. It is completely surrounded by Peg's beautiful gardens, and nearby are quiet and helpful neighbors. The setting is perfect- you can see the harbor out of both the living room and bedroom windows. The cottage is right in the middle of a private lane but only a short walk to the harbor and the Seafood Ketch restaurant. The house itself was perfect, pleasantly decorated and comfortable for all our needs. It is clean and roomy with several cozy spots in which to relax, both inside and out. You can sit on the small front porch with a cup of coffee or glass of wine and admire the harbor. Although it was just 2 of us staying it would also work for a couple with 2 children. The queen-sized bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was adorable with on-demand hot water. The kitchen was well-equipped with everything we needed to cook our meals (including a 4-pound lobster). For the cooler weather, there is a gas fireplace stove that would take the chill off. We were so glad that we stayed on this side of the island rather than in Bar Harbor. We appreciated the fact that Bass Harbor is a working harbor and not a tourist town. Mt. Desert Island is quite compact, so we could drive to almost any of our activities in less than 30 minutes. The nearby town of Southwest Harbor (10 min drive) had several excellent restaurants and shops. All in all, the location was the best of both worlds, especially for a relaxing vacation. For restaurants: lobster roll at Beal's and small plates at Coda. Our favorite was Sips, where we had delicious food, cocktails and wine. Of course, cycling the beautiful carriage roads is a must. Hike Mt. Dorr instead of Cadillac to avoid the crowds. Drive around the coast and watch the surf explode through Thunder Hole. Thuya Gardens are beautiful. We kayaked secluded Seal Cove Pond, and Long Pond and saw loons on both. There are plenty of trails for both the serious and less adventurous hiker. And, we experienced some the best star-gazing right from the cottage yard. MDI has a lot to offer- plenty to keep us busy for a week or more. After each day of exploration, it was great to return to Peg's Pocket to prepare a simple dinner and enjoy the sunset. We hope to see Peg and MDI again!"
