Our eco-friendly, naturally set 60-acre compound stretches along a sunset facing expanse of prime oceanfront. There are 10 sophisticatedly rustic and up-scale one- and two-bedroom cottages scattered along the shore front or nestled amongst the trees. They have spacious living rooms, real wood-burning fireplaces, and hide-a-bed couches that can sleep another person or two. Some have full kitchens and others kitchenettes. Daily housekeeping and the laying of fresh firewood in the fireplaces (in season) is included in every cottage. Our staff lives on site. We have converted an 11th cottage into our no frills, budget friendly Hostel at Acorn. It has six private rooms with a combination of bed arrangements from a single twin bed to a room with both a queen bed and a twin bed. There are shared bathrooms and public spaces in Hostel at Acorn.

Nearby are numerous art galleries, nature preserves, crafts and antique shops, and bookstores. Blue Hill is just 15 minutes away; Stonington and Castine are 25 minutes away; Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park are about an hour's drive away.

Our cottages have kitchens or kitchenettes in which to fix meals but dining at a local restaurant can be a lot of fun. Our kitchenettes have a refrigerator, sink, counter, automatic coffee maker, toaster, electric or conduction hot plate, and microwave oven. Our full kitchens are complete with the preceding and also an oven and stovetop burners. A large assortment of utensils, dishes, pots and pans are provided. We ask that you wash your own dishes and leave the kitchen/ette as clean as you found it.

We require a credit card number to be kept on file for all reservations. Security Deposits: We charge a $200 refundable security deposit, which will be returned two weeks after departure unless there is damage, the cottage is left in poor condition or there was an unauthorized late checkout.
Pets Welcome
His season we welcome guests in select cottages (Birches) who desire to vacation with their dog. In consideration of our other guests, however, we do not allow dogs on Oakland House beaches. Dogs must be on leash at all times. We charge $10/day per dog; one dog per cottage. We have a supplemental “Welcome Pet Policy.” I confess that I am allergic to cats, so cats are not allowed in any of our cottages.

Jim and Sally are the ultimate hosts. The entire facility is a delight and the entire staff was outstanding. The meals prepared by the chef were beyond delicious.

It was wonderful. Maine and the Oakland House in particular were beautiful and I was sad to leave. Truly relaxing and fun!
