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!
Clean and had everything we needed. Right in town yet place was quiet and private.
Great spot for our family vacation
Really enjoyed this house. Great location.
Enjoying Northeast Harbor, ME
This is a lovely property located in a quiet area near Acadia National Park. The house was very clean and bright, the deck was delightful, and the easy walk to the small village was much appreciated. We could also walk to the harbor (took a 2 1/2 hour boat ride from NE Harbor around the islands), the post office, and the "Explore Acadia" free bus that serves many points on the island. It is a unique set-up, i.e., there are two buildings joined by a deck, one having a kitchen, dining room, and living room, with a loft bedroom, the other having two bedrooms. Worked well for us.
Had a wonderful stay at Lilac Ln.
We really enjoyed the layout and accommodations provided. Everything was comfortable and all kitchen supplies you would need are available. This is a great spot and layout for two couples. The patio is a great spot to relax as well. We can’t speak highly enough of the town and people in Northeast Harbor. All the shops and restaurants on Main St. are easily accessible by foot. You can walk to the marina/harbor and gardens as well. Only a ten minute drive to get to Acadia National Park. We are so happy we stayed in Northeast Harbor over Bar Harbor. The location made the trip everything we had hoped for. We highly recommend staying here. Owners were accessible when needed and this place is well kept and clean from top to bottom. We plan to return in the future.
Loved, loved, loved!
We loved this location! Very convenient to Bar Harbor & Acadia. We enjoyed great summer like weather & the privacy of the deck & open layout of the main house. This unique layout worked great for traveling with teenagers - everyone had their space & could hang together when we wanted. Charming! Loved, loved, loved! We will be back!
