Nestled on 60 acres of oceanfront paradise, this Maine resort offers comfortable relaxed Maine vacation lodging in spacious Maine coast cottages and rooms in the Hostel.

These Maine rental cottages, cabins and rooms in our Hostel at Acorn are perfect for secluded romantic escapes, family vacations, and large family gatherings. Couples seeking romantic Maine getaways will thrill to the authenticity and comfort offered in our historic summer cottages. They are clean and made up with fresh, clean linens, pillows, and plenty of towels for your arrival (always). Daily housekeeping is included as is delivery and laying of fresh wood in your fireplace each day during high season. We offer weeklong stays and shorter stays (with a two night minimum). We can provide a Welcome Breakfast Basket for an added cost although all cottages and Hostel@Acorn have full kitchens or kitchenettes.

This is the quintessential honeymoon destination! Just as have other couples searching for a honeymoon on the coast of Maine, you'll discover here the honeymoon destination of your dreams. Our natural waterfront, private cottages, cozy living rooms, comfortable beds, and wood burning fireplaces make this the perfect place for your honeymoon. Spend your honeymoon here! Ledges Cottage is our favorite for honeymoons. Ask about our bubbly, fruit and chocolate basket.

Our season runs generally from as soon as we can open cottages in mid-April through departures in mid- to late October. The days and seasons are ever changing. The colors, hues, wildlife and ocean are spectacular with changes daily. Whether you're looking for a romantic Maine getaway, a honeymoon in Maine, a family vacation getaway, a family reunion destination, a Maine cottage rental, Maine vacation rentals, or a Maine coastal bed and breakfast, hotel or motel, stop here first. You'll want to stay. You'll be glad you did and will return.

We're located in the heart of the Blue Hill Peninsula, central to a myriad of activities and an enticing variety of restaurants, cafes, and roadside stands. Our location is just one of the things that will make your vacation getaway here so much fun.

When it comes to lodging in Maine, Oakland House Cottages by the Side of the Sea offers an experience like no other - operated by the same family in the same warm tradition of Maine Hospitality since 1889.
