Northeast Harbor Maine is famous for its summer residents, a beautiful protected harbor with exclusive yachts and sailing vessels, and Acadia National Park. Lilac is a unique cottage offering a main house and a guest house connected by the spacious gathering deck. The Main house is comprised of a great room with open kitchen/living room concept that offers a Queen size bedroom and bathroom in the upstairs loft. There is also a queen sized pull out sofa-bed in the Great Room. The connecting guest house contains two full and private bedrooms both attaching separately to a full bath. One bedroom has a queen sized bed and a 2nd bedroom with sturdy twin bunk beds. This unique design sleeps 8, a maximum 5 adults with 3 children and offers extra privacy for two families traveling together or In-laws traveling with you. It also works very well for traveling with older children so you may each enjoy your own space while still spending time as a family. Northeast Harbor is a quaint little village close to all that Acadia National Park offers this unique island. Some of the best hiking biking trails are less than 5 minutes up the road by car. Spectacular Asticou and Azalea gardens are within a 5 minute walk! There is a great path behind the guest house that brings you into down town within a minute, while still being away from downtown. Perfect location within a couple of minutes walk to all downtown shops, restaurants, as well as the marina, yet you are tucked in on a small side street never knowing you are that close to the downtown.

Best. Vacation. Ever.
You know it was a good time, when you return home exhausted from all the fun! The house was perfect for our family (5 adults and 2 kids) and Northeast Harbor was a wonderful home base. The house is a 30 second walk from some of the best donuts we've ever had (Colonel's) and just a short walk/run/ride to everything MDI has to offer. Erica was wonderful to work with and the house is adorable and provided everything we needed.
Justine, Thank you for the wonderful review! I have to agree about the donuts, they are sinful :-) We are so glad you had a great time and Lilac provided a nice home base for your vacation. Hope to have you come back real soon!
Cute house-great location
This was a perfect house for a family of 6 with four teenage kids. It was a great location in Northeast Harbor, a quick walk to its restaurants and shops, and a short drive to the park and Bar Harbor. We had one problem with a toilet and the owners quickly sent out a plumber to fix it. Great house to enjoy the beautiful Acadia National Park!
Beautiful, charming home. Perfect for a family vacationing.
Loved the home, but you might want to update the pullout sofa. Not comfortable! Was thankful I brought a blowup mattress with me.
Beautiful place to stay
This was a very nice place to stay and very convenient to things we wanted to see.
I would recommend it to anyone that wanted to visit this area.
Wonderful house and guest house. Privacy gained. The best vrboin NE Harbor
Recommend. Owner response time and handle of any situation immediate. The downfall of the area is the lack of good places to eat. Town rolls up its sidewalks early. Restaurants a very needed thing
Excellent property in an excellent location for spending time at Arcadia NP. Would stay there again.
