Following up on this question, we've decided to spend a week in Camden, Maine at the beginning of August. It's not as remote as we were originally planning, but my wife really wanted to see Acadia, and the more we thought about it the more we got concerned about keeping a five year old entertained in the boondocks.

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. [more inside]

I'll be spending next week with my wife in the midcoast region of Maine. (Just outside of Lewiston-Auburn.) She has family there, so she has spent plenty of time at all of the touristy things around. What off-the-beaten-path things can I suggest for us, within about an hour of Lewiston?
