Acadia National Park Apartment Rental Photos and Description

A Quiet Comfortable Place To Hang Out Or Use As A Base For Adventures In Acadia

East Lodge is in Hancock, Maine, 15 miles past Ellsworth and quite near Bar Harbor. My cabin overlooks Jellison Cove and the Porcupine Islands, is in the woods, a short walk from the beach, and about half an hour from Mt Desert Island, home of Acadia National Park where there are multitudes of things to do for young and old. Visitors are welcome to stroll through my gardens. (I am a professional landscape designer). The sitting room/dining area are comfy and modest. There are twin beds which are easily pushed together for a cozier snooze. There's space to make some coffee or tea and a snack... A lovely place to eat your breakfast or snack is just outside your entry door - Adirondak chairs rest on my mossy 'lawn' overlooking the ocean vista through the tall spruce trees or snooze in the hammock under the pines. You can even dine on the brand new picnic table as you watch the red sailed boats out of Bar Harbor. WiFi is available. There is a TV with a DVD player and decent phone reception.

I am a working artist and the space displays my work which I sell in local galleries. Some teaching is available upon request.

From Hancock, it is a quick ride to Acadia National Park in Bar Harbor; in the other direction, you can go to Schoodic, the quieter part of Acadia. In both parks, there are awesome trails to bike and hike. Ralph and Mary's lobster shed is just up the road and they will even cook them for you! There are several delicious and cute restaurants (Chester Pikes has the BEST breakfasts!!!) within 15 minutes and you are just 15 miles from Ellsworth, the cultural center of the area. And one can rent bikes, kayaks and canoes from a local sports shop.

Flights go directly to Bangor which is about an hour from my house....you can get a car at the airport. Another option is to fly to Bar Harbor Airport - about 45 minutes or less from EastLodge. The scenery is unbeatable!

I'm asking $130 per nite or $850 for the week (minimum stay - 3 nites). Most weeks are still available.

I hope you'll come and see beautiful Maine.

I am a working artist - my medium is rustic woodworking. I earn my dollars as a landscape designer heading my company for the past 18 years. I'm the granny of three young'uns with #4 on the way! My two children are terrific and have set their lives up well. I love the beauty of the Maine landscape and am thrilled to be outside most of the time after living most of my life in Philadelphia

Vicki Fox purchased this apartment in 2008

I started to visit Maine in 1982 when my kids first went to camp here. For numerous summers, I'd travel up and down the coast with my friend - we were the Flotsam and Jetsum Duet, landing where it looked interesting. I decided after years of wandering, to purchase land and build my dream home, based on the design of the summer camp I'd gone to as a kid. I loved the process and am pleased as can be with the result.

You will be comfortable and rested in this well equipped, modest space with its marvelous views of the ocean, lobster boats, Porcupine Islands and close at hand beaches. The local lobsters are the best around and you can even have them cooked for you. There are several good restaurants close by or you can venture into Ellsworth, Bar Harbor or Blue Hill for a change of scene.

I chose to build my home here because the view was so sweet and it included the rugosa roses along the beachside. The sun rises and shines on my pillow each day and a sense of peace opens my eyes.

Wonderful Setting for Exploring and Creativity

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect place to stay for exploring the Acadia region and for our creative outlets - writing and photography. The grounds and view of Frenchman's Bay were lovely - I spent early mornings out by the gardens reading and journaling while looking out at the Bay. The living space was perfect for us - clean accomodations, lovely artwork of Vicki's and a kitchen area perfect for the meal preparation I needed to do for my son who has food allergies. We didn't have a set schedule as to what to do and Vicki had terrific suggestions - exploring the Schoodic penninsula, kayaking in Frenchman's Bay and visiting art galleries on a rainy day. We loved being in quiet area but still being close enough to visit Mount Desert Island. I would definitely recommend staying at Vicki's for those who want to explore the area and be surrounded by serene, beautiful, creativity-inspiring surroundings.

Great place, ideal location to explore Acadia!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time in the Bar Harbor/Acadia region, and our stay with Vicki was absolutely fantastic. We had a wonderful time at Bar Harbor/Acadia, absolutely beautiful area. Vicki's house is very charming, and our stay was quite comfortable. It is central to most other places besides Bar Harbor if you want to explore other areas (especially if you want to avoid the busy days on Mt Desert Island). Schoodic Point, the less frequently visited area of Acadia, and a 20min ride from the house, is a must-do and -see. Vicki also suggested other quaint towns that were nearby to see (i.e. Corea, Winter Harbor, Northeast and Southwest), and a lovely couple to see down the road if you want lobsters (~$4/lb). There is also a very nice view of Frenchman Bay, a little down the road from Vicki's house, which offered breathtaking sunset views. Overall, we had a blast. We miss the area very much, and look forward to coming back hopefully soon!
