Fantastic family vacation!
We spent our second summer here recently and had the BEST time. The location is ideal if you want a quiet outdoor adventure and there are plenty of things to do to keep little ones busy event on a rainy day. Thank you for another incredible trip!
Great house for getting away
Beautiful property. House is easy to use, great kitchen with great layout. The washing machine, linens and dishwasher were great additions to make for light packing. The cove was great to explore-- although our week was warm and the mosquitos fierce on the walk there! Bring rubber boots and kids can explore into the water and mud for great wildlife. At sunset the birds dive for fish, which was super cool.
For the house-- it is very isolated and private. DARK at night, which was great for us. Sunset side so you didn't get sunrise right INTO the windows allowing some later sleep (minimal curtains). Set up with bathrooms and bedrooms great for families. We liked being away from busy side of island-- and did lots of exploring at Echo lake, sea wall, sea harbor, etc.
Richard was a great host. Issues with wifi on arrival-- which he had promptly fixed. Prompt responses for questions. We did the recommended boat tour-- and it was great. Boys also climbed with Atlantic Climbing School - and they have you repelling down Otter cliffs right over the ocean! (which needless to say way a big crowd pleaser). Overall a great week.
1- stop at the visitors center on Thompson island off the bridge and get a visitors pass in the park, and quiet side hiking guide which contains a tide chart so you can plan your cove visits, your visits to thunder rocks, etc,
2- go early if you want to park at sand beach or echo lake. We were there in peak season and parking in bar harbor and park was no joke. However, the swimming at Echo ledges was more fun (no beach) than the beach swimming at Echo lake anyway.
3- Beehive isn't worth it, and it is super dangerous. Gorham Mt. and continuing down Cadillac cliffs trail are way better views.
4- Little Notch bakery is a wonderful in Southeast harbor-- french bread/pastry by french staff.
5- Food prices are high on the island, we stopped in Bangor at the Hannaford and filled the cooler. The IGA on 102 had reasonable selection, but limited.
6- Do not miss the blueberry soda.
Sunsets and Lobster!
Our family of four had an incredible stay in Acadia at the Prud'homme cottage! We stayed for a week in late July and we were really pleased.
The listing on VRBO is completely accurate. Even more, we were so happy with the open space of the cottage. You enter into a terrific country kitchen that is separated from the rest of the home by a counter. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you'll need. Meal preparation was a lot of fun since our family was all together with one or two people cooking and others in the living area. The living area included a small dining table and ample seating: a futon, a slider chair, and an oversized loveseat. The high ceiling in the living area helped the entire living area strike a balance between spacious, yet also felt cozy.
An additional plus about the cottage is the arrangement of bedrooms and bathrooms. The master bedroom is downstairs and there is a bathroom on the first floor. Upstairs are two bedrooms and a bathroom. Kids upstairs, parents downstairs. Wonderful! The addition of the washer and dryer on the first floor also really helped the comfort of our stay.
In terms of location: the cottage offers plenty of privacy. There are homes nearby, but none visible from the house, lawn or decks. It's a bit of a drive from the cottage to Bar Harbor which we did on two occasions, but Southwest Harbor is nearby and that's hustle and bustle enough. Mitchell Cove is a very secluded beach. It's rocky, but our kids loved exploring for hermit crabs and skipping rocks. Most importantly, Mitchell Cove has awe inspiring sunsets! We'd walk down to the beach for the sunsets and have the place to ourselves. Another plus about the location is it's within walking distance to Thurston's Lobster Pound. We only went once during our stay, but it's the real deal and we should have gone again. Another cool thing we did regarding location was to take a sea kayak tour out of Southwest Harbor. This was just a short drive from the cottage.
Ultimately, the cottage's design and setting is the idyllic Maine and Acadia cottage. We're really grateful for our stay.
our annual peaceful getaway
I can't say enough positive things about this property. It is honestly magical, beautiful, and peaceful. When we first visited several years ago, we had no plans of making Maine an annual trip, but everything about Acadia and this house were so wonderful, that we've just kept coming back. The location is perfect--quiet, serene, lovely, private. And the owner is amazing in his responsiveness (got back to me within an hour on the 4th of July when I had a last minute question!) The yard and nearby cove are perfect for our school age children (and us!)
