My girlfriend and I are flying into Boston on September 21 (evening) and flying back out of Boston on September 29. We are considering renting a cabin/cottage for the entire week near Bar Harbor, but would like some advice on the best way to spend the week. The only things we "must" do are eat lobster, see Acadia, and spend some time de-compressing. The reasons for the cottage rental were:
1. Rental rates seem to be a little better than hotels.
2. The privacy associated with being in your own place.
3. We do not know anything about the areas enough to plan a better way to do it.
We are wanting to get as much advice as possible on the best things to see, do, and eat. We are also willing to not stay in Bar Harbor, as long as we are within an hour or so of the park for a couple of days.
Budget: No more then $1300 for the week in lodging between all places.
Travel Companion: 1 Couple- 2 people total in party
Likes/Dislikes: Romantic, Eating, Sight Seeing , Not into extreme hiking.
Thank you in advance for your suggestions.
