We loved our stay at Acadia cottages. The cottage itself is very nicely maintained... Crisp sheets and towels, updated design, very clean. The studios have a stand up shower- no tub, but still very nice. Kitchenette with everything you might need (except an oven), all in great condition. We enjoyed the short walk into town, exploring hikes and restaurants outside... More

We stayed at a studio cottage for three nights, and loved it. It was a spectacular base from which to explore Acadia National Park, and had great hikes and kayaking outfitters very close by. The cottage, which is clean and cozy, is beautifully lined in rustic wood that glows in the light. Our cottage faced the woods, which felt really... More

We had a terrific stay at the Acadia Cottages for 4 nights. The owners' son was very nice and polite with us during the check in process. Other than that initial interaction we did not deal with the owners, since we did not ask their advice on anything and we were very much allowed to have our privacy during our... More

These cottages were the perfect place to stay during a week long trip to Acadia National Park. They were clean, well-equip with the typical things you would need for a week long stay (such as pots and pans, coffee filters, toiletries, and other kitchen items) and nicely set back from the main road. In terms of location, they are literally... More

Vickie and Tom Z, Owner at Acadia Cottages, responded to this review

We’re glad you enjoyed the cottages and our convenient location. We’re sorry you felt like you did not have the opportunity to visit longer with your sister. However, you had never informed us that an additional group of guests would be staying on the property in their van when you registered. Because your sister and her boyfriend were not registered...

We had an amazing honeymoon in Maine, and these cottages were a perfect tranquil home base to explore Mount Desert Island in its entirety. These were recommended by a friend, and I am happy to say we would definitely do the same! Tom and Vicki were great and the cottages were clean and cozy.

We had a delightful stay at the Acadia Cottages. From the moment we arrived the owners were prompt and attentive. We stayed in a studio cottage, while it is a bit small, it is laid out in away that maximizes space. The kitchen had two burners and all of the pots, pans and utensils you need for cooking your own... More

These cottages are the perfect spot to relax and rejuvenate. They are extremely clean, stocked with everything you need and located in a private wooded area within walking distance of town. The owner was so pleasant and we so enjoyed our stay. We would love to return soon!

We had a WONDERFUL time on our vacation to Maine and our cottage at Acadia Cottages was the perfect place for our home base while we were there! Super clean, kitchen had everything we needed, walking distance from town, and the best part was the place was literally tucked away in the woods, we felt like we were living in... More

Our family enjoyed the gorgeous environment, immaculate cottages, and tremendous hosts. My husband is an extremely light sleeper, and we often have trouble finding places to stay that are quiet enough. Acadia cottages, although close to town, are extremely quiet. I can not think of anything that would have made it a better place to stay. We are not from... More

While Heaven provided us with perfect Maine weather, Tom and Vickie Zacharias added wonderful cottages, quiet, places for meeting together, variety of things to do, New England charm, and a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere. When we saw the location of the cabins just off the main street of SW Harbor, we were afraid it would be noisy and "touristy." But instead... More
