A beautiful cabin, well taken care of......we were impressed

Just wanted to say thanks for having us. Acorn cottage was just such a perfect spot away from all the main business of town but still within walking distance. A beautiful cabin, well taken care of......we were impressed. We really enjoyed our stay. Quiet, nestled in the really was the perfect spot for us. We definitely are considering coming back at some point.......loved all the hiking and biking opportunities.......the weather was good to us......Acadia is such a beautiful place and lots of great places to eat. Thanks again! Hopefully we'll be back in touch again soon. - (Sep 2023 - VRBO)


Cottage was cozy, comfortable, clean and tucked away

Wonderful stay for my husband and I. Only a few mins walk into Bar Harbor for restaurants/shopping or the other way into Acadia. Cottage was cozy, comfortable, clean and tucked away from the loudness of town. Great communication from hosts. - (Jun 2023 - ABNB)


Acorn Cottage - in the village of Bar Harbor, walk or bike to ANP and the downtown village

I fell in love with this property as soon as it popped up. We were so excited to see it was EXACTLY as presented on VRBO. Everything listed was available and in working order. Location: SUPERB! Though it sits just outside of the Bar Harbor Village, off of the highway it's still quiet and relaxing. Several times we walked to and from the village. It's also very close to the loop road for Acadia National Park. Property: Surrounded by trees, nestled near a broom and little walking path, gave that feeling of being in the woods without actually being remote. The home was CLEAN and inviting! We like to cook some when we're on vacation and the kitchen, while not fully stocked, had the basics we needed; can opener, bottle openers, scissors, sharp knives, serving and eating utensils, nice dishes, a fabulous coffee maker (drip & K-cup combo), a French press, tea kettle, a good selection of pots and pans. We felt so cozy. The window seat is perfect and there's a great selection of books and puzzles. TV with access to Ruko, Netflix & Prime. The bed and pillows were comfy, too! We felt like the hosts thought of every detail for travelers. While the hosts do live on the property, other than a brief, friendly introduction and conversation, we saw & heard little of them. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend the property to others! - (May 2023 - VRBO)


Great cottage!

Great cottage! It was private and close to town, park and carriage roads. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked. There was a covered area to put our bikes. - (Aug 2022 - ABNB)


Stayed here on our honeymoon and it was perfect!

My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon and it was perfect! The check in process was very easy and any questions we had were answered in a very timely manner! The cottage is small but has everything you could need! The cottage is quite close to many other houses and not as secluded as it appears but it was still relatively quiet with the exception of the occasional loud car driving by! I would definitely stay here again! - (Aug 2022 - ABNB)


The location cannot be beat!

This is the second time my husband and I have stayed at The Acorn Cottage. This is such a lovely space! It's so cozy, comfortable, and has all the amenities and comforts of home. The location cannot be beat! Easy access, walking or driving, to the park and to downtown. Tom and Mary are very wonderful and helpful to make our stay a success. Would love to return again. - (Jul 2022 - ABNB)

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Acorn cottage is delightful. The location is superb for an easy walk into Bar Harbor or access to the National Park. It is close to the busy town entry, and yet quiet. The cottage is equipped and decorated nicely. The kitchen is well furnished and spacious. The spiral stairway to the loft bedroom is tricky at first but enchanting. Pack clothes in small bags in order to take them up to the loft where a perfectly adequate closet is provided. The bed and linens are wonderfully comfortable. The cottage has a high ceiling and is airy. The pine finishes give it a country cottage feel. The location brought in nice fresh breezes. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The little blue berry jam gift was most appreciated. Everything about our stay was comfortable and really just perfect. Your cottage is beautiful and gave us a very restful and comfortable space to recover from biking and hiking. - (Jun 2022 - ABNB)


All around perfect cottage!

This is the best place to stay in Bar Harbor! Close enough to walk into town, but far enough away to be peaceful at night. Just minutes from Acadia. The kitchen has everything you could need, and the living room is stocked with books, movies, puzzles, and games. Just enough room for two people for a week. All around perfect cottage! - (May 2022 - ABNB)


Highly recommended.

Acorn Cottage is ideally located to both Acadia National Park and is a short walk to Bar Harbor. The cottage is spotless and very comfortable. - (Oct 2021)


Perfect cottage getaway

Perfect cottage getaway within walking distance of the village and a very short car ride or bike ride to Acadia. It was definitely perfect for mine and my husbands first trip to Maine. It was very clean and well stocked with everything we could have wanted. - (Oct 2021 - ABNB)


The cottage is a gem!

My husband, 6 month old daughter and I loved our stay. Bar Harbor holds a special place in our hearts. The cottage is a gem! It's in a perfect location for exploring the village, hikes in Acadia, etc. We loved our short walk into the town each day. The privacy of the cabin as it is tucked into the woods is what we loved most. It was clean, cozy & felt just like home to us. The cottage is beautifully built. We loved relaxing on the porch, cooking on the grill and chilling in the lovely living room. We all especially loved the window seat. Would definitely love to come back here to stay next year! So many wonderful memories were made on our first trip as a family of 3! Thank you! - (Sep 2021 - ABNB)


Would definitely recommend and stay there again

We had wonderful week stay at the acorn cottage. Ideal location within walking distance of downtown Bar Harbor yet still gives a woodsy relaxing feel. Close to great biking carriage trails as well. Has all the amenities needed for a week stay plenty of cutlery, kitchen gadgets, and plates. Cooked a few meals in the kitchen and grilled as well. (When propane tank out the hosts were quick to respond and replaced with additional tank.) There home was well decorated, comfortable, had plenty of informational brochures, and fun games to play and books to read. Previous review mentioned an ant problem however we noticed no bugs or ants at all. - (Oct 2020)


The acorn cottage was a fantastic place for to spend time in Acadia

The location is ideally quiet and close to Acadia National Park while still being accessible to shops and restaurants in Bar Harbor. The space was sparkling clean when we arrived, and is warm and cozy at night. I would highly recommend staying." - (Oct 2020)


The cottage was well decorated and comfortable. It is obviously loved.

We loved the location.We liked its architecture and loved all the natural light and windows. It had a well stocked kitchen with all of the utensils, pots, pans, and small pantry items you could need. - (Sep 2020 - ABNB)

What a gem!

Acorn cottage was even better than we hoped for. Tucked amongst the trees with birds chirping but walkable to the hub bub of Bar Harbor or to hiking trails in Acadia National Park. We love to cook in some nights and everything you'd need was provided. What a gem!! Date of arrival - July 6, 2019

The cottage was so homey and comfortable...

My husband and I stayed at Acorn Cottage for one week during our trip to MDI. We had an absolutely amazing time! Tom and Alan were quick with their responses, added thoughtful touches such as gifting a jar of local blueberry jam and providing maps of the local hiking trails (which made our stay that much more enjoyable!). The cottage was so homey and comfortable, it had all of the amenities that we needed to cook meals and feel at home. The location could not be better, so close to downtown and to the park- in the center of it all while still being tucked away. We spotted 4 deer one night while grilling dinner - quite a treat! - (Jun 2019 - ABNB)


Great cottage!
