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)

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)

Lovely Cottage

My husband and I stayed here with our five month old. It was perfect for our little family. Clean, beautiful cottage. The deck is perfect for grilling and the kitchen area has all the essentials you need. You can't beat the location. Walking distance to downtown Bar Harbor and a short distance to the entrance of the park. We have already recommended this place to friends.

Perfect location for Acadia

We just loved this little cottage with it's charm and convenient location. After a day of activities it was nice to come "home" and relax on the porch and plan the next day's adventures. All the amenities of home made it very easy to settle in with a well stocked and efficient kitchen and comfortable bed. Would recommend it highly for a perfect getaway.

The cottage is first rate and your hospitality outstanding. I had a wonderful experience.

I found the cottage very cozy, well appointed and clean. Although the cottage is close to the house, it is very private. You were very helpful. Any time I needed assistance or orientation and guidance, you were there for me. The cottage is within walking distance to everything you need, and at the same time it is located in the woods. Every time I visit Bar Harbor, I intend to stay in the cottage. - (Jun 2018)

Beautiful location - excellent hosts that stay away except when asked to stop by. A short walk to anywhere in town - yet secluded and quiet with many amenities at you fingertips. 
Would I recommend this vacation rental to my best friend? Yes. - (Sep 2017 - Previous)

"Wonderful little cottage set in the woods"

Reviewed March 22, 2015 for a stay in August 2014 
A great find just minutes from Bar Harbor. Great for a couple. Has easy access to Acadia national Park & surrounding area. It's a beautiful little cottage with a full kitchen and bathroom. Enjoy the quiet without the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor. Just note, there is no laundry facility. One has to use the coin wash in town. Would definitely return to this establishment again. Enjoyed our stay at the Acorn Cottage. - (Aug 2017 - Previous)

"Charming cottage in ideal location."

Reviewed November 3, 2014 for a stay in August 2014 
We spent a week in Acorn Cottage at the end of August. The cottage was charming and well maintained, and the lessors were responsive, organized and easy to communicate with. We felt very at home during our stay. We loved the location, which was between town and an entrance into Acadia, so we could easily access both. We live in a city, so appreciated being away from town, but liked the fact that we could easily walk there to eat, shop, etc. - (Nov 2014 - Previous)

"The best of Bar Harbor"

Reviewed October 30, 2014 for a stay in May 2014 
Acorn Cottage is perfectly located to enjoy all that Bar Harbor has to offer. It is walking distance to the town where there are great little shops, a lot of restaurants and a beautiful harbor. It is also close to Acadia National Park which is a great place to hike or bike. 
The cottage was very well stocked with everything you could need such as paper goods, spices, towels, etc. We loved the gas stove on chilly mornings and evenings. - (Oct 2014 - Previous)

My wife and I stayed a week at Acorn Cottage and couldn't be more pleased with our decision. If you are after a place that offers a bit of solitude yet convenience to the park and Bar Harbor, you can't find a better place. We can't wait to make another trip! - (Jun 2014 - Previous)

The Acorn Cottage is custom built to be a quiet, semi-secluded getaway within walking distance of Bar Harbor 'downtown' community and easy access to local attractions.

We have stayed at this adorable cottage twice, and have already booked our third time. This place is a dream and the owners are so nice. We wouldn't change a thing! Location is perfect, cottage is so nice that if the weather isn't great, you don't mind being stuck there! We seriously just want to move in and stay forever. - (Jun 2013 - Previous)

"Perfect Place"

Reviewed June 2, 2013 for a stay in October 2012 
My husband and I rented the cottage for our honeymoon trip to Bar Harbor last October. We could not have picked a more perfect place. It was close enough to town to walk in for dinner and drinks and just outside acadia's entrance for exploring and adventures. The cottage is quiet, private and charming. We found everything we needed there to have an amazing honeymoon and were able to stay in on numerous occasions to cook lobster dinners and enjoy our peaceful surroundings. We were very happy with acorn Cottage and already plan on returning for a second stay sometime in the near future! - (Jun 2013 - Previous)

"Perfect Getaway"

Reviewed May 23, 2013 for a stay in December 2012 
I was lucky enough to rent the acorn Cottage for the month of December. I can't imagine a more perfect place! the cottage was located within easy walk to town and the acadia trails. The cottage is beautiful~ it is open, lots of natural light, well decorated, warm, and cozy. I especially enjoyed the window seat where i could look out into the woods while i read a book and listened to music. the little stove in the corner was perfect for heating the space and never felt drafty. the kitchen could have used a little extra counter space but it doesn't really detract from the space as most people on vacation are going out anyway. the owners (who are great!) are close by but give you space while at the same time being accessible should you need anything. I highly recommend this cottage for a getaway in any season. - (May 2013 - Previous)
