Acorn Cottage: A great family getaway in Hulls Cove, Maine

Great family house

  • 4 of 5

We are a family of five with three college aged kids. This was a great place to stay. It was very close to the park entrance and visitors center. There were resturants and, of course, mini golf nearby.

The best part was the kitchen. It was huge and the most well equipped place we have ever stayed in. All the utensils and appliances you will need and a large selection of spices. Also a new weber grill right outside.

The bathrooms, although smallish, both had been recently updated with new fixtures and had plenty of towels.

I can't say enough. We really enjoyed our stay!

Excellent Vacation Home in Hulls Cove, Maine

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Acorn Cottage. It was perfect for our family of four. It was very clean and just as advertised. It felt like home away from home. We hated to leave!

Everything was great - except the road construction but that wasn't anybody's fault.

  • 4 of 5

The place was very nice - very clean, comfy and well kept. The proximity to Acadia and BR Harbor couldn't have been better! We loved our stay!

Acorn Cottage Review

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a week in Acorn Cottage and absolutely loved the property. The cottage is beautifully maintained and we felt instantly at home there. Beautiful kitchen,large master with deck overlooking woods and oversized washer/dryer made it a wonderful week retreat for us. We would definitely stay there again. Great location. We walked to the local stores. Arcadia National Park was awesome.We used the free explorer bus to get around. The lack of fast food resturants on the island meant we ate lots of local fresh seafood. Maine lobsters are so cheap we had them 3 times!!! A very beautiful part of the country.
