Should You Stay at an Acadia National Park Airbnb?

There are many options for how to enjoy an overnight stay in Acadia National Park. You can go camping, stay at a hotel, or, as this guide suggests, take advantage of the many Airbnbs in Acadia National Park.

One fantastic thing about staying in an Airbnb in Acadia is that it allows you to be close to the park or inside of it so that you can wake up and watch one of the earliest sunrises in North America.

Another perk of Acadia and Bar Harbor Airbnbs is that you can head back to the rental after a long day and relax and cook an easy meal. Maine can be a bit expensive and while you should enjoy a few nights out at restaurants, it is also nice to enjoy your evenings by a fireplace or in the comfort of your own space.

Acadia National Park is one of the best destinations in Maine (and in the United States as a whole!)and there are so many cool Airbnbs that help make it even better!
