Looking to rent a cottage near Acadia National Park for Thanksgiving, but drawing a blank. Please help.

I am planning to make a trip with my family to Acadia national park during the Thanksgiving weekend in November. It will be a surprise gift for my family and having just graduated, my budget isn't too high, but I want to do the best I can for them. I am guessing that many of you have been to Acadia and could share some of your experience.
We will be 3 adult couples (me/wife, my parents and my brother/wife) and are therefore looking for at least a 3-bedroom cottage. Since it is off-season there due to the winter, I had budgeted $500 for renting the cottage for 3 nights in Bar Harbor or surrounding areas. However, most cottages on homeaway, vrbo etc are at least $1000 for the week and most don't rent for less than a week - many don't rent at all after October.

Can someone please suggest some cottage or similar accommodation based on the following requirements:
1. Should be somewhere around Acadia National park but not necessarily very close. We do like some touristy hustle-bustle, so being in/near a town is a plus, but it's not necessary.
2. At least 3 bedroom cottage/cabin/home.
3. Should rent out for only 3 nights and be operational during November. Our budget is $500 total for the 3 nights.
I will be really grateful for any suggestions of specific cottages or any tips on how to find one. Thank you.
