"Entering the property, you catch a glimpse of water right away, and then comes the “wow” moment, when a colony of tents with a backdrop of ocean pops into view."
Boston Globe
"Under Canvas Acadia offers everything that brought you to Acadia in the first place—dense woods, a rugged shoreline, a sense of being completely enveloped by nature—yet it’s also meant to compliment the time you’ll spend in the national park each day, with the comfort of real beds, a campfire to cozy around each night, and grown-up camping meals that’ll reward you for days of hiking."
Condé Nast Traveler
