Tremont vacation rentals

Travel to quiet Tremont for a tranquil island escape

Tremont is a small and quaint harbor-front town based on the rocky and forest-rich Mount Desert Island, just off the coast of Maine. Charming Tremont's vacation rentals are suited to all sorts of island travelers _ whether you're looking for a romantic oceanfront cottage, a serene cabin deep in the woods, or a spacious family-sized traditional townhouse. Tremont celebrates its captivating local heritage with museums and monuments, and its abundance of natural beauty is on full display in the Acadia National Park, a vast lake-studded forestland that overflows into the town itself.

Tremont's wilderness welcomes outdoor explorers

Outdoor adventurers can book a Tremont vacation rental on the outskirts of Acadia National Park and immerse themselves in the ensemble of activities that the forest offers. There are hiking and biking trails that wind through the trees and climb the park's several mountains, and fresh water fishing opportunities in the many ponds, lakes, coves, and rivers. In summer, these rejuvenating bodies of water are great for swimming, too. Somes Sound in particular _ a huge natural body of water that almost splits Mount Desert Island in half _ offers water sports, including kayaking and sailing.

Family-friendly sights in and around Tremont

History buffs who have booked themselves a relaxing Tremont vacation rental can get to grips with the town's heritage at the Tremont Historical Society Country Store Museum, a 19th-century house _ lined with red-painted timber slats _ which showcases a collection of local artefacts and photographs. In the adjacent village of Bass Harbor, see the Bass Harbor Head Light, a historic lighthouse perched on a rocky crag overlooking the shimmering harbor waters. For a fun family trip, visit the Seal Cove Auto Museum, a collection of antique cars and motorcycles with hands-on exhibits for the kids.

Tremont's summer celebrates sunshine

Tremont and the rest of Mount Desert Island experiences intense climactic shifts between seasons, with sun-kissed and humid summers and very cold and windswept winters. If you're hoping to use your Tremont vacation rental as a base for outdoor explorations, visit in summer when temperatures regularly rest in the mid to high 70s, and sunlight dances across the deep green tree tops and crystalline harbor waters. Fall can be a pleasant time to book a Tremont vacation rental, too, as the island's foliage explodes in an array of ravishing reds, burnt oranges, and vibrant yellows.

Tremont is surrounded by wilderness and wildlife

With the untamed nature of Acadia National Park pouring across much of Mount Desert Island and overflowing into Tremont itself, wildlife and wilderness will never be far away on your Tremont travels. The 49,000-acre park consists of towering pines and conifers, which provide a home for moose, minks, and muskrats, as well as white-tailed deer, snowshoe hares, and even black bears. The park also hosts abundant birdlife, including bald eagles, golden eagles, and endangered peregrine falcons. There are several mountains in the park, including the pink granite Cadillac Mountain _ a popular spot for travelers to watch the sunrise.
