Maine, need help with best area to stay

Jump to last reply

I'm finally ready to start seriously looking at booking a rental house for our trip in October after scanning what's available for about a month now. I know I gotta get on this quick but I had to wait for confirmations from our other two friends. Two of us couples even have our flights booked :) Yeah!

So my questions is...as I'm looking at the Bar Harbor/Acadia area...does it really matter which area I find a house? Would anywhere in the Mt. Desert Island, Northeast Harbor, Seal Harbor, or Southwest Harbor do us just as well as Bar Harbor itself? Our idea is to find a nice water front home to rent, but not sure if that will leave us too remote, and if we'd be happier in town somewhere? I know this is subjective of course, but I have no clue what to expect. We'll only be there 3 nights, and plan to cook a couple nights, so location and what it has to offer in regards to the view of our surrounding is pretty important. I love the idea of sitting on a large deck overlooking the water and boats at the end of the day (or early morning), but then perhaps I can do that at a restaurant just as easily if we are in town? And maybe that is more ideal to take in the atmosphere of the area? Help? ((?))
