    We enjoyed this cozy cabin very much. It was always such a great haven to come back to after a long day. We enjoyed Acadia Park, hiking Jordan Pond, eating lobster, shopping at Bar Harbor, canoeing on Echo Lake, grabbing ice cream and spending time at the cabin. Many blessings,

    This cabin is appointed with everything you need but also has a rustic charm to it. It’s centrally located near everything but not too close to the busy parts of the island. The fire pit is lovely and the kitchen is well stocked with essential implements for making food at the cabin. Thanks for a great property, Jennifer.

    Our trip here was incredible! Everything was perfect & beautiful. All our hikes we saw new things. Lobster Lodge was a perfect home for the week! Thank you!

    We loved staying at this little house! It reminded me of my great uncle’s lake cabin when I was a kid. Everything we needed and a great location on the island. We <3 Acadia!

    Out trip to Acadia National Park was so memorable! We walked around Jordan Pond and went to Bar Harbor for a whale watching tour and even conquered Beehive Trail!!1 After our adventurous days we loved coming back to this cozy cottage to enjoy the fire and a warm meal. The canoe and kayak were a hit! Thank you for accommodating us & providing every small detail to make this our favorite vacation as of yet 🙂

    Place was great. Would gladly stay here again. Can get chilly at night but that’s not something that bothers me, just turn the heat up a little. Location is nice, it’s away from the bustle of the towns but since the island isn’t huge it’s quick to get around.

  7. Guests

    Enjoyed our stay. Kitchen supplies were sufficient as we cooked a few nights in.
    Hikes in Acadia National Park never failed to amaze-views everywhere are lovely. One reason we love the area. Another is how the lobster is cooked to perfection and fried clams are crisp and not greasy. The Mainers do this well!
    Hiked South Bubble, Pemetic, Beehive and Beech. Walked along Sand Beach and Ocean Path. Visited Mt. Desert Ice Cream in Bar Harbor for great unique flavors- Outstanding! Also visited Quietside Café for ice cream- delicious.
    Enjoyed some wine, beer, and cigars by the chimenea at night.
    Visited Atlantic Brewing in Bar Harbor for a flight of beers to try along with poutine. Also the Cottage Pub for divine cocktails.
    Other highlights were Asticou Gardens although this time of year flowers are not in bloom. Lovely gardens and pathways. As we travel- we always being a puzzle to do and together, it was completed!!! We watched Netflix, read, and relaxed between hikes and exploring.
    We also enjoyed a carriage ride and popovers at Jordan Pond House.
    Our last hike of the week was Dorr Mountain, the ladder trail.
    Great week with family- good memories.
    Thank you
    P.S. Also saw the sunrise at the top of Cadillac Mountain!

    We had an amazing time at Lobster Lodge. It was so nice to have family time together here in Maine. The canoe and kayak were an awesome addition to the cabin. We had a lot of fun doing that and hiking and enjoying the area. Thank you for making this memorable for us.

  9. Guests

    My family and I stayed at the Lobster Lodge. We were close to everything that we needed and were able to explore the beautiful area with ease from this perfect setting. A small trail leads from the cabin to Echo Lake where you can kayak and canoe to swimming areas. The local market is also very close and convenient. The property owner is very accommodating and responded quickly to our questions. We hope to return!

    Lobster Lodge is ideally located at the top of Echo Lake just above Sommesville, with easy access to Acadia Park, Bar Harbor, Southwest Harbor and more. My two sons and I hiked, canoed, sailed and visited every corner of MDI. Accommodations were perfect. Comfortable. Spotless. Everything we wouldn’t have even thought we’d need was provided for us. We’d canoe on Echo Lake in the morning and sit by the fire in the evening. Could not have hoped for more.

    The location is close enough to Bar Harbor but really close to several areas of Acadia National Park. It is a rustic cabin and for me who likes to stay in nice hotels or condos this was great. Very clean and they provided a bunch of the everyday items that most people forget to pack. It does not have AC, but at night with the windows open and the fans on, it was not missed at all. There is a kayak and canoe with life jackets to use, we unfortunately did not get a chance to use them for our trip. We spent the vast majority of our days out and about the island and it was nice to explore and have some family time.

  12. Guests

    We had a wonderful time here. The cabin was clean and quaint. Our dog was right at home here. We spent a few days out and about, but we also got to rest and relax here in the cabin too. Thanks so much for the hospitality.

  13. Guests from VA

    The Lobster Lodge was a great location for us to do all of our favorite things on MDI- hiking and biking in Acadia National Park, lobster at Thurston’s Lobster Pound, and meals at Geddy’s (awesome gluten-fee food!) in Bar Harbor. The mosquitoes were a little too thick this time to enjoy the outdoor aspects of this cabin such as the firepit and fishing & boating, but we had a great vacation. Thanks!

  14. Katie & Cory

    Loved the fire pit and canoeing on the lake! Acadia is gorgeous and we were glad to have a cozy place to retire after a long day of hiking and exploring. Thanks for a great stay! P.S. We got engaged here!!!

  15. Guests

    The cottage was clean, cozy, and neat. Jennifer was very helpful with tips of the local places to eat and sites to see. I would definitely come back and stay at Lobster Lodge again!!

  16. Guests

    This cottage was comfortable and in a good location with easy access to Acadia, Southwest Harbor, and Bar Harbor. Jennifer was helpful and easy to work with prior to our arrival. We enjoyed the cottage!

  17. Guests from PA

    We had a wonderful stay at Lobster Lodge! We loved exploring MDI and Acadia. Canoeing in the morning and sitting by the fire in the evening added perfect touches to our relaxing vacation.

  18. Guests

    We had a wonderful stay at Lobster Lodge! The cabin had everything we needed to enjoy our stay and the use of the canoe and the chimenea were wonderful bonuses. We are already thinking about when we would like to come back for our next visit! Thank you, we really enjoyed our stay!

  19. Guests

    We had a very nice stay at the Lobster Lodge. The highlights were: the proximity to hiking locations and Bar Harbor (and we were able to wave down the free Explorer bus many times and didn’t have to deal with parking); the ability to go canoeing on Echo Lake and see a million stars at night; and the kitchen that allowed us to eat in for many of our meals. Overall, it was a very good stay. Thank you.

  20. Gina & Daniel

    We had a lovely stay at the Lobster Lodge- complete with canoeing, hiking and good eating.

  21. Guests from 7/13/18

    We loved our stay in Lobster Lodge! Such a cozy place and perfect way for us to explore Acadia! Our last day here, we took the canoe and kayak out and paddled the length of Echo Lake- so beautiful! And we found everything we needed to make some lovely dinners. For those coming after us with families- the Acadia Park Rangers are amazing and put together some really fun and engaging programs for the kids, definitely worth checking out!

  22. Guests from Missouri

    We loved our time at Lobster Lodge and will definitely be back again!

  23. Lobster Lodge guests

    We had a great time staying at Lobster Lodge. It was so convenient to everything we did while here in Acadia. Loved going to Cadillac Mountain to watch the sunrise!! Loved shopping in Bar Harbor. Loved all the coves and inlets and driving the loop road in Acadia. We loved Maine! Thank you!!

  24. The C's

    Thank you for sharing you adorable cabin with us! We had a wonderful time <3

  25. Riter

    Charming, well appointed little cabin! We did a lot of cooking here. Two lobster dinners plus two others! We had everything we needed plus the serving ware, dishes, wine glasses, etc. gave the spread real pizzaz! We made a fire, kayaked, hiked Echo Lake Loop numerous times and enjoyed our conversations with the folks who live along the lake. One lady and her family have been coming here every summer for the past 46 years! We also enjoyed sitting out on the little deck and sleeping in the comfy cool (temp-wise) beds. A word of advice- use the dustpan and broom for cleaning floors and rugs. works better than the sweeper and easy as pie! We would love to come back! Easy access to Acadia and all the harbors, friendly folk at Maine Island Properties and the maine woods are spectacular! had a great time!

  26. Trola

    Thank you! We had a lovely time here. Great location for exploring Acadia and we LOVED the kayak/canoe- thank you SO much for including them with our stay!

    We had a great time in Maine! Our children loved exploring Acadia and browsing in Bar Harbor! The “Lobster Lodge” was just the perfect size for us. Thank you and safe travels to those who come after us.

  32. Tina

    We loved the lobster lodge! After a long day of hiking and boating, we could come home to this cozy cabin. Canoe and kayaking was amazing! I hope everyone else staying here enjoys exploring Acadia as much as I did.
