It began as an 18th-century British settlement after the French and Indian War, and it sustained itself as a center for lumber and boat-building in the years that followed. But since its incorporation in 1800, the city of Ellsworth has become best known for its position as the gateway to Downeast Maine - a commercial crossroads for visitors to Acadia National Park, and a destination in its own right for shopping, outdoor recreation, and our wonderful Ellsworth vacation homes.

Recent Ellsworth vacation rental reviews

Nice place for family gathering. Issue with hot water but maintenance was quick! No complaints with that, but cleanliness needs to be addressed:(
Michelle D. | Jan 2022
The only draw back to this home is all the bedrooms are upstairs and the stairs are extremely steep with narrow treads. It would be hard for an elderly person to get up these stairs. Otherwise it was great!
Aimee S. | Oct 2021
Overall, this house satisfied our needs and was a very clean and well-kept place with a great location for driving into Acadia National Part every day. However, the layout of the house left a lot to be desired, and was particularly inconvenient for the adult couple staying in the second story loft bedroom. The 1/2 bath that was attached to this loft bedroom was VERY cramped, with not enough head room to stand up straight over the commode. In order to get from the loft bedroom to the full bath and shower on the main level, one has to go down the steps, through the living, dining and kitchen areas - all public areas. The headroom in the bedroom part of the loft is so low that we bumped our heads multiple times when moving to the left side of the bed. In addition, the laundry room is located inside the master bathroom on the main level. This is very inconvenient for anyone other than the persons staying in the master bedroom. As long as a traveling group can live with these house design mistakes, it was a very clean and well-kept place. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Where is Ellsworth, ME?

Located in Hancock County directly north of tranquil Mount Desert Island, Ellsworth sits at a major junction of U.S. Route 1. This town of nearly 8,000 residents on the Union River is just 18 miles north of the Hulls Cove Visitor Center at Acadia, 20 miles north of charming Bar Harbor, 28 miles southeast of Bangor, and 139 miles east of the historic city of Portland.

Things to do in Ellsworth, ME

Before hopping in the car to explore the wonders that await in Acadia, take a day or two to enjoy the beauties that surround our Ellsworth vacation rentals. Begin your mornings with an espresso at Rooster Brother Coffee Roasters, a hybrid specialty cooking store and coffee roastery beloved by Ellsworth locals. You'll then be fueled for a day on the links at the Bar Harbor Golf Course, an instructional class at Pinniped Kayak, or a peaceful stroll through the wildflowers, glens, ponds, and picnic areas at the 200-acre Stanwood Wildlife Sanctuary.

When you're not perusing the city's restaurants and shops, or perhaps setting sail from the public marina, be sure to stop by Woodlawn Museum, Gardens & Park. This 180-acre estate is home to the gorgeous historic Black House, formal gardens, and quiet walking trails that are open for exploration.

Visiting Acadia National Park

It is Ellworth's proximity to the unique landscapes of Acadia that has spurred its recent role as one of Maine's fastest growing cities. Whether you're a hiker, kayaker, motorist, or cyclist, you'll be enchanted by the scenery in this incredible national park.

There's no better place to begin your visit than a stroll down Ocean Path, the 2.2-mile trail that connects Sand Beach with Otter Point as it traces a stretch of iconic, craggy coastline. Gaze across the pristine waters of Frenchman Bay from the one-mile climb to the summit of Gorham Mountain, or calm your nerves for the treacherous (but breathtaking) ladder ascent of the Precipice Trail.

Just be sure to save at least one day for a sunrise atop Cadillac Mountain (which is best reached before dawn on the 2.2-mile North Ridge Trail), a lunch of lobster stew and popovers at Jordan Pond House, and a delicious dinner of Latin-inspired favorites at Havana in downtown Bar Harbor.

The wonders of Maine are unlike any others - let our Ellsworth vacation homes introduce you to this awe-inspiring state.
