We (two adult couples/lifelong friends) thought Ollie's Folly was the perfect home for our first stop on our quest to visit as many National Parks as we can!
Acadia NP was a gorgeous drive along Coastal Highway 1 (~50 minutes drive).
Hiking the Schoodic area of Acadia and stopping at US Bell and eating at the Pickled Wrinkle were definite highlights (and are very close by). The grocery store in Milbridge provided ribeye steaks and bacon which made us very happy :) Ollie's Folly was perfect for us. The home is lovely and comfortable in every way. The kitchen was well stocked. The kitchen table hosted our meals and many laughs. The deck was our first stop in the pitch black night to view the incredible night sky! Being deep in the woods and having no unnatural light to inhibit the darkness made for a breathtaking sight of the heavens!
FYI: Low tide means no tide at all. Not getting into the water was a draw back for us. However, all the other positives outweighed the disappointment of low tide.
If you are looking for solitude, fresh air and a rush-free break then Ollie's Folly is your home base and, frankly, it is a destination all on its own!

We loved this vacation rental, the house was clean, cute, and comfortable with a great host! The surrounding area is peaceful and beautiful and full of great hiking spots.
