About the neighbourhood
Wildlife abound at this unique vacation rental, nestled among the pines with gorgeous views of Somes Sound and Acadia Mountain. Access to Somes Sound from The Acadia is down a 1/4 mile pathway to the shore. Guests are allowed to fish, picnic, swim, kayak to and from*, and arrive and depart by boat from the face of the dock. There is no boat tie up. Use of the dock is carry in/carry out. *Guests can kayak from the shared dock, but we have found that it is not necessarily feasible for many of our guests given the distance and grade of the pathway to the dock. Close to Bar Harbor, Southwest Harbor, and within a mile of Acadia National Park, including the trail head to Acadia Mountain and crystal clear, spring fed, park owned Echo Lake.
