Me and my partner (both in our 40s) stayed at Acadia. Secluded and quiet. Clean. Staff was genuine in their offers to help make our stay perfect. Every. Single. Staff. It was unique in their charm and also providing independence with our time.

We had stayed at an Under Canvas outside Zion National Park so had looked forward to an excuse to stay at another. This location is on the edge of the sound, and perhaps a 20-minute drive from the Bar Harbor airport or 30 minutes to the closest entrance to Acadia. As National Parks go, Acadia is relatively small in size so even at the far side of Acadia, you're still probably not more than an hour away from this spot. The property is in good condition, staff is delightful, food better than one would expect, and the whole environment very chill and mellow. Our gripes are so minor they are barely worth mentioning: we think this location would be well-served by the addition of a resident Camp Dog or two (those who did not bring their pups tend to experience Dog Envy toward those who did, so a few community dogs would be nice, and we think it's just a crazy oversight (probably due to corporate lawyers) not to have a few kayaks and canoes on the edge of the water for paddling around. Under Canvas is a really well-executed and consistent concept, and of the four nights we were there it was so cloudless we saw more stars than we could ever see at home -- so one of the perks of being a bit out of the "bustle" of Bar Harbor itself. Particular thanks to staff members Hannah, Olivia and Garrett.

I am not a camper and nor do I pretend to be. This was VERY nice, and I would stay again! A solid A.

We visited Under Canvas over 4th of July weekend. The layout allows for a surprising amount of privacy, considering how many tents there are on the property. Ours faced towards the woods rather than the walk path, which was great. The community tent offers games, some entertainment, a restaurant, and a beautiful view of the water. They have fire pits (both gas and wood) set up in the evenings for you to enjoy. You can walk to the shore if you want to do a little exploring. The tent itself was well appointed. The in-tent restroom facilities was very handy. We did have to turn down the heat level on the instant heat though. It was just a really beautiful place to stay.

We LOVE Under Canvas!

Cannot recommend highly enough!! We love how peaceful Under Canvas is. The amenities are fantastic. Excellent customer service. Delicious food onsite makes it so convenient. My kids loved the activities and having their own little tent next to ours.
