Please note: Usually, we can only rent Sunday to Sunday for June, July and August mainly due to a shortage of people to clean when the cottage is turned for a new renter.

Stays of a minimum of 3 nights are fine for the other rental months, but less than a 7 night stay will incur an extra $25 to help cover extra turnover cleaning costs.All guests must ...

    Orientation

    Find Pure Tranquility on the New England Coast

    The Acadia National Park is second oldest in the eastern United States, having protected a stretch of gorgeous Maine coastline since 1919. These days, it's heaven for water sports fans, hikers, climbers, seafood lovers and anyone who adores unspoiled nature. And there's no shortage of vacation rentals in the park, either.

    A Quick Introduction to the Acadia National Park

    You'll find the Acadia National Park around two thirds of the way up Maine's Atlantic coast., a few hours drive from Portland (ME) or Augusta, ME. The main part of the park consists of Mount Desert Island, although there are many smaller islets to explore.

    How to Get to Acadia National Park

    The best way to get there is to take I-95 to Bangor then take State Highway 1 to the ferry at Winter Harbor. Delta, United Express, and American Eagle also run seasonal flights to Bangor International Airport.

    Activities in the Acadia National Park

    A World-Class Hiking Destination

    The trails of Mt Desert Island and the Isle de Haut offer endless routes for hikers (and mountain bikers) to explore, including climbing Cadillac Mountain for superb views across Bar Harbor.

    An Amazing Seafood Scene

    Maine has an incredible collection of seafood restaurants, and Bar Harbor hosts some of the state's highlights, with gourmet lobster and crab dishes on the agenda almost everywhere you go.

    A Fine Place to Get Out on the Water

    The sea and the lakes on Mt Desert Island are one of Acadia's recreational highlights. Join charter fishing trips with expert skippers, or rent kayaks to paddle around picturesque lakes like Jordan's Pond.

    At 1,530 feet, Cadillac Mountain is the highest peak on the entire east coast of the United States.

    Top 5 Things to Do in the Acadia National Park

    1. Take a Historic Carriage Ride

    The park has a 57 mile long network of carriage tracks laid out by billionaire John D. Rockefeller, and you can explore them all thanks to carriage companies like Wildwood Stables.

    2. Drive the Park Loop Road

    Park Loop Road runs for 27 miles around the main island, providing a beautiful introduction to the rugged coastline and forested lakes that are there to discover.

    3. Pay a Visit to Sand Beach

    This charming sandy beach is as close as Acadia gets to a sunbathing spot, and is absolutely breathtaking. The water may be chilly, but the surf is great – and the scenery is sublime.

    4. Hear the Booming Waves at Thunder Hole

    Accessible via a dramatic wooden walkway, Thunder Hole is a natural geological formation where the waves “boom” for hours before high tide and the waves can splash as much as 40 feet above the edge. It's an awe-inspiring place.

    5. Climb Cadillac Mountain

    Rising 1,500 feet above Mt Desert, Cadillac Mountain dominates most of the park and for most of the year it's the first place in the USA to see the sun rise. It's also the place to take incredible snaps of the park at its most glorious, and it's not a tough climb.
