My family of 2 adults, a 20 and 16 year old had a wonderful week vacation at Lito Lodge. The cottage was comfortable with a fully equipped kitchen for meal prep and lots of creative seating areas outside on back deck and lawn to enjoy the beautiful bay. The gorgeous glassed in back porch was a favorite relaxation and board game area as well. It was a manageable 25 minute ride to Acadia and Bar Harbor with the endless outdoor activities available. In addition acess to the rocky beach at different tides was lots of fun. We would definitely return.
We had a wonderful time and the lodge was perfect. The landscaping is beautiful very well kept place. While in the area we toured with Oli's trolley, hiked many trails in Acadia, rock climbed, white water ragged and went on a whale watch trip! We at amazing restaurants, and we're always happy to get back to the lodge.
Lito Lodge was a hit! I was tasked with booking a place good enough for me, my two kids (aged 6 and 2), my parents, and my husband's parents. Quite a task if I do say so myself! This was my first time ever being in charge of planning a vacation, and my first time booking a vacation rental, so needless to say, I was nervous! The pictures were beautiful. The price was right. The location was decent. There had to be a catch, right? NOT ONE!
The house was calm, relaxing, and perfect. Everything we needed was already there and taken care of. There is a Wal-Mart right down the road, and we were able to easily get groceries. We rented a kayak from Scotty's and were out on the bay everyday, either out in kayak or looking for shells or just enjoying the GORGEOUS view. The deck was great for grilling outside. When it got cold (as it did at night and sometimes during the day), we sat in the sun room and watched the boats pick up their pots from the water. We brought binoculars to enjoy the wildlife and were able to see so many stars right from the deck.
Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park were about a half-hour away, which I thought might be a bit far at first, but to be honest, after being in Bar Harbor, I'm so glad we stayed in a less crowded, calmer area. I don't think we'd be able to get something so serene closer to town. While Bar Harbor and Acadia were amazing, they could also get very crowded. And it was through driving back and forth that we found some amazing stops, like Smokies BBQ and Lobsters (AH-mazing) and Scenic Flights of Acadia (flying over the islands -- so cool!). Without that drive, we'd have missed out on some staples of our trip.
Okay, I'm going on and on, but I just can't help it. We all had a great time. I would recommend this place again and again to anyone who wants an adventurous vacation with a relaxing and welcoming place to come home to. Thank you so much for sharing your property and making it easy for this first-time vacation planner to book!
Lito lodge was clean comfortable and beautiful. The ocean and mountain views were spectacular.
Close enough to bar harbor and Acadia but far enough away for peace and quiet. Cooked on the grill to sounds of loons and seagulls. What a week of comfort and relaxation.
Would highly recommend this rental to couples or families. It has everything you would need for an eventful memorable stay.
Lito Lodge is a nice, clean and quite one, which has a den and a patio. It takes about 30 min drive to Acadia. We had a good time.
