Tucked away on Maine's rocky coastline is the town of Trenton, the gateway to Mount Desert Island. Travelers who pass through this part of the state get an authentic Maine experience, and our comfortable Trenton vacation homes will only add to your pleasurable vacation.
Trenton is 12 miles west of Bar Harbor, across the Mt. Desert Narrows, and seven miles from the rugged beauty of Acadia National Park.
If you're on your way to Acadia National Park for a picnic, pick up provisions in Trenton and live Maine lobster along the way. You'll also find handcrafted sweet treats and souvenirs, as well as antique and weathervane stores offering iconic mementos of your time in New England.
For summer travelers, The Great Maine Lumberjack Show is a must! Witness log rolling, speed climbing, sawing, and chopping performances and contests and cheer for your favorites. Kids will appreciate a trip to the Acadia Zoological Park, a 35-acre preserve featuring native and exotic animals like caribou, buffalo, and moose. There's also a petting zoo for your little ones.
If you want to take a day trip and are headed toward Ellsworth, Maine's downeast gateway, make a pit stop at Wild Acadia Fun Park and Waterslides for loads of family fun. Or if you're traveling with a group of adults, check out Ellsworth's nightlife, featuring pubs, tapas and wine, and billiards.
If you're looking for an unforgettable New England vacation, you can't go wrong with one of our Trenton vacation rentals. Reserve yours today!
