Acorn Guest House
The Acorn Guest House offers travelers a simple, budget-friendly accommodation with access to all hiking trails, beaches, gardens and services the inn and cottage guests enjoy. The six private rooms are rented, hostel style, although reserve early and it’s possible to have the entire house, perfect for families or guests on a common retreat.
There are two rooms on the first floor, along with an eat-in living room, bathroom with tub/shower and large, fully stocked kitchen, communal space for all Acorn guests. Four bedrooms make up the entire second floor and the third has a large bathroom with a vintage clawfoot tub and a sitting room/library. Wifi is available at no charge.
Rooms have all been named after local wildlife: Bear Cave (with one twin bed), Eagle Aerie (two twins), Wren’s Nest and Fisher Cat’s Den (each have full beds), Romp of Otters (queen bed) and Banditry of Chickadees (our largest room with a queen bed and a twin). Because this is a shared space, minimum guest age is 18.
The Acorn has been a hard-working member of the Oakland House family for years. It was built as a private home, became an “ice house” to store blocks of frozen pond water later shipped to cities for refrigeration, once a casino and now a most welcoming vintage Maine home for guests to spend a night or an extended vacation.
