Weekly cottage rental in Bar Harbor/Acadia

Hello -

My husband and I would like to book a home for a week in the Acadia Park area. We are from TX and have never been to Maine. We have been looking at cottages and homes on line, but are afraid to book something, then get there to discover it was not what we thought. There will be a group of four adults, no children. Does anyone have advice to share about booking a home for a week? Thanks so much

Me and My husband have rented a home in the area for two weeks in October we found the place on vacationrentals.com or look on cyberrental.com it was a bit pricey but It looks amazing and it is on Frenchmans Bay. I can let you know how it is after if you like. There are alot of reviews that you can read about these homes too. Hope this helps adn have fun planning!!!

If you would post the urls of the three or four houses that appeal to you most, those of us who live here could give you some feedback on how the location is or anything else we might know about them.

LS Robinson Real Estate has tons and tons of rentals. We used them this summer to find a place and were exceptionally happy with what we got. They usually have lots of pictures and when you call them they are really know about the property they are renting. I would try them.
