About the Owner

Owners of Acadia Pines rentals, and locally known as GramE Pat and GrampE Bob , we own several vacation rental cabins on Mt.Desert Island. (the home of Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park).

Bob was born and raised in Northeast Harbor (about 6 miles from our Somsville rental chalet) and I grew up in South Jersey . We have the good fortune of living and working in the heart of Acadia National Park (Our cottages are centrally located on MDI). Married for over 48 years, we have 2 grown married sons and 3 wonderful grandchildren!.. We love sharing ‘our piece of Maine’ .

Let us know your time frame..We’ll save your spot…and when you arrive, we’ll have the lights on for you, the heat cranked up and a welcome basket full of goodies on the dining room table. You’ll know you’re in the right cottage because GrampE Bob makes a wooden sign with your name on it and hangs it by the entry door. ..We enjoy and appreciate our ‘paying house guests’.We look forward to your visit.

Wish I had a longer vacation

  • 5 of 5
I wanted to have a break from work, and take my family for a good time out. While browsing through the houses, I noticed the Pine Chalet, and it attracted me from the moment I saw it. I contacted Pat, and she really helped me out with the entire process and it was really smooth dealing with her. Paperwork was quick , and the house booked.

I arrived at the location, to find firstly the house had a wooden name plate with my last name engraved on it. Inside, was a clean and welcoming house - and a welcome basket with homemade jam and awsome bread.

Then, we started to tour the house. And, I wanted to spend my vacation in the house itself. It has been decorated with outmost care. Every little detail taken care of, to make my trip a memorable one. The house had entertainment options like family games and kids movies, extra linen and blankets, and amazing glassware/silverware.

Maine - there is no time enough to enjoy it. In a flash, my vacation came to an end. I felt sad leaving the Pine Chalet, but at the same time had a wonderful time here with my family.

I will definitely be visiting here again. Thanks Pat for everything.

Park Chalet

  • 4 of 5
The location was perfect. Plenty of room for 8 people. The inside stairs were very steep and only had a railing on 1 side. My son and his wife are in their forties and they found the stairs difficult and I in my seventies found them extremely hard to manuver. The outside stairs were easier to navigate. The house is very clean and had anything you could ever have wanted. The downstairs sitting area had no curtains and was a bit scary in the evening. I spent my evenings upstairs.
