We are parents, hikers, bikers, kayakers, and national park enthusiasts who enjoy sharing our 'happy place' with others. We have rented out the Acadia Getaway property (both House and Cabin) to wonderful guests (30% repeating) since 2001. We used to rent directly, but have succumbed to market pressure and now list here as well. Check out more reviews the AcadiaGetaway website and Facebook page.
Owner purchased this House in 2001
Why Owner chose Stone Haven
We rented the Acadia Getaway Cabin for years from the previous owner. We really fell in love with the Cabin and the area. When it came up for sale in 2001, we took our chances and bought it and the Acadia Getaway House together. The more we practiced as hosts --and corresponded with our guests-- the better we got. We've had many, many folks say "you've thought of everything!", which is our goal. Pack your clothes, toiletries, and active gear and you're good to go!
What makes this House unique
Acadia Getaway is right near the Park, but 4 miles away from the traffic and hubbub of downtown Bar Harbor. Centrally located to everything, and a nice place to come home to at the end of the day. Very set up for kids with books, rainy day games & toys, stroller, baby backpack, high chair, and porta-crib (you bring bedding). The frog pond, grill, table & chairs in the back are a hit for the whole family.

Great Bar Harbor Stay!
Our girls getaway was great at the Acadia Getaway House! Nice house layout, private patio and yard, super Weber grill for easy dinners after a day biking, shopping and sightseeing at Acadia National Park. The House is at the perfect location for carriage trails, entrance to Cadillac Mountain and downtown Bar Harbor - nice Catholic Church for Sunday Mass was an added bonus. Owners are easy to work with and very responsive - I would recommend this property for anyone wishing to experience the beauty of Bar Harbor and surrounding areas! It was a perfect week living in a comfortable home surrounded by nature, fresh air, nice people and as much exercise, restaurants and scenic beauty that you could handle!
Great to hear! Come back soon, Mary!
Perfect Spot for Hiking and Getting to the Park!
We loved every second at Acadia Getaway. We have to travel to Acadia at least 3 times a year for work and we are so happy to have found Acadia Getaway. The location to the park is awesome, 4 miles. Eagle Lake is less than a mile away which was perfect for us because we brought our paddle boards and kayaks. You can also walk to the nearest carriage road from the house (not with little ones though, the road is busy getting there). It's super easy to find and we felt like it was right in the middle of everything without being IN Bar Harbor. Downtown was only 10 minutes away, perfect for all the great eateries. We loved Lompoc Cafe, great menu- farm to table. Acadia Getaway was clean, comfortable, easy to get to- perfect for us and our 7 year old. The little pond in back kept him busy catching frogs and the woods smelled amazing. Thanks again for an awesome week!

Glad you had a great time! The little pond is very popular with the kids. We filled it with plants, and the frogs just showed up! We love hosting them as well. Hope you can come again.
Delightful Acadia Vacation Home
Lodging at Acadia Getaway was a fantastic experience for our family of 5. It was our 2nd trip to Acadia and the location was just phenomenal! The home is just a short few minutes drive to one of the several Acadia Nat'l Park entrances, Eagle Lake carriage trail for biking, and beautiful downtown Bar Harbor. The beds were very comfortable and the home was very well equipped - the owners even had a baby backpack we used to get our little one up the hiking trails - very thoughtful! The washer and dryer was key - very important with kids! The home was exactly what I anticipated after seeing photos on VRBO - clean, cute and very cozy. We hope to be back as well as to recommend to many other family and friends in FL who have never experienced the treasure of Acadia!
Perfect especially for first-time Maine visit
Acadia Getaway was perfect for our family of 5 -- cozy, comfortable, convenient, and clean! Owners made the reservation so simple and everything was as it was described. This was our first time visiting the area, and the location of this home made access to all of the activities at Acadia, in Bar Harbor, and in neighboring towns simple. Plus, our kids enjoyed coming home to a backyard of woods to explore! Thanks for a great stay!
Glad you had a nice time. Hope you and the family can come back soon!
We stayed in the cabin located on the property. It was very clean and had all of the amenities of home. We recommend this cabin to others. It was in the perfect location. Great time!
Great location, comfortable house, a bargain.
We have stayed here several times and it has become our favorite vacation place. It's so easy to do so many different things from the house - hiking/biking the carriage roads, kayaking, road biking, hitting the beach, a day in town, etc. You can walk or bike right into the park! House is clean, comfortable, has everything we need. Nice hang on the back patio.Hosts are very helpful and easy to communicate with, super nice folks. And all at a bargain price!
Thanks Mark! This house is our "baby" and we love sharing it, and the beautiful area, with others. Glad to see that you and your family are coming again this year!
