This vacation rental is very special! The cozy, warm feel of the place helps you to relax. Seal Harbor is the jewel village of the island and a contrast from the touristy town of Bar Harbor that is a ten minute ride away. Northeast Harbor is just five minutes away. Some of the world's best sailing and boating waters are surrounding this area. The range of things to explore is endless. There is a little of everything cultural and sporty, safe and healthy. Acadia National Park is the smallest national park in the USA, but it is the fourth most visited national park. Most of the park is on Mt. Desert Island and it only has a 40 mile diameter but it is packed with delightful sea villages, rugged rockbound coastlines, sandy beaches, mountains (Cadillac Mt. with auto road), and exciting coves. Restaurants abound, shopping and galleries are all over the place. The natural beauty is the best part of this island, and it's uniqueness is world renowned!!!!
The first floor has a living room with vaulted ceiling, brick fireplace, and entertainment center with cable TV, VCR, and DVD player. Free internet WIFI services and phone services. Nicely decorated kitchen with NEW SPACIOUS PANTRY, expandable breakfast/dining table and custom tiled floors. There is a NEW finely furnished dining room. NEW FULL bathroom with washer/dryer are available on first floor.

There is an outdoor picnic table and charcoal grill to enjoy the spacious front lawn area. A quiet and safe playground is a two minute walk away at the Acadia Oceanography Institute schoolyard. Welcome to our special rental!!!

I have been to Maine a few times, but had never made it to Acadia NP. I'm so glad that I was finally able to get the family up there, and that we found Acadie Cottage. It was perfect for the 5 of us. The cottage has more than enough space and is off the beaten path enough that you don't feel totally surrounded by people like you do in Bar Harbor itself. I have used VRBO several times and this was the simplest and easiest transaction yet. While I have never met, or even actually talked to Rhonda (only email), it was like staying at an old friends house. It was simply comfortable and relaxing to come back to the cottage after hitting it hard all day in the Park. We were on vacation for over 3 weeks throughout New England and Quebec, stayed at some very nice places, and this one was my families unanimous pick as our favorite of the trip. My family and I thank you Rhonda!
This was our first time back to MDI in many years. It was a gem of a vacation. The house was perfect for our family, well stocked, and comfortable. The location made it easy to access Acadia and neighboring communities- just a short bike ride to the carriage roads and local beach. This was a wonderful place to unwind and enjoy the local treasures. We were sad to leave and can't wait to come back again! We recommend!
This was our first trip to Maine and we fell in LOVE! Everything about this rental exceeded expectations- the photos do not do it justice. Our son has a severe peanut allergy making restaurants next to impossible in most cases, and the kitchen had everything we could possibly need to prepare our own meals. ( he was thrilled to be able to eat a big yummy grilled cheese at Mainely Meat at Atlantic Brewing Co; they were so accommodating - highly recommended) The bedrooms are spacious and super comfortable and we enjoyed winding down in the cozy living room playing cards and talking about all the fun we had during the day. We were sad to leave and can't wait to come back. Thank you for sharing your little piece of heaven with us.
Lovely cottage for a couple and 2~3 kids in a quite location. We had a good time. Need some more space in the kitchen cabinets.
My family of four stayed here for 5 nights last year (dates are approximate). It is perfectly situated next to Acadia, down the road from Bar Harbor (without all the tourist hustle) and a short walk to a public beach which provided for some nice early morning and late evening sand-dollar hunts and tide-pool exploration. The home has everything you might need and was very comfortable. We would definitely stay here again!
Our first 3 generation vacation at Acadie Cottage provided all of us with memories that will last a lifetime! We had a long drive from Rhode Island and it was so wonderful to arrive to this warm, cozy cottage with lights on for us and kindling ready for the fireplace. It is in a great location, away from the busy town area and offers easy access to Acadia National Park. We were on the go in the park alot and when we got home from our adventures we really felt like we were coming "home". The well appointed kitchen allowed us to do most of our own cooking, a real money saver. It would have been helpful to have a little more available cupboard space, we had to keep most of our stuff on the counters as the cupboards are full of the owners belongings. The yard is charming and my grandchildren had loads of fun playing there with lots of toys provided at the cottage. There is a cute little playground just down the road that they also enjoyed. We had 6 adults and 3 kids, including a baby and 3 dogs there and were all very comfortable. We were so delighted that the owners allowed us to bring all of our dogs! The bedrooms are lovely and comfortable, the room with the twin beds is huge and worked great for my daughter and her husband with their 2 kids...plenty of open floor space for sleeping bags. The downstairs bedroom is big and has an adjacent half bath with laundry which was perfect for my son and his wife with their baby in a porta-crib. Acadia Nat. Park is one of our very favorite destinations and this was a great place to stay!
