Terramor Outdoor Resort Review: Luxury Glamping Near Acadia National Park Maine

Terramor Outdoor Resort Acadia National Park

Acadia National Park is the perfect place to escape the city and disconnect in nature. However, there are no hotels within the national park, so you’ll need to stay in one of the towns outside Acadia. Terramor Outdoor Resort is the best place to stay near Acadia National Park as it offers the perfect combination of luxury and nature.

Although I love being outdoors and hiking, I hate camping, and would much prefer to return from a long day in the park to a comfortable bed and hot shower, which is why I chose to stay at Terramor Outdoor Resort in Bar Harbor, Maine. Equipped with real beds and bathrooms with running water (and flushing toilets), Terramor is like a hotel room inside of a tent. This is my honest review of if Terramor Outdoor Resort is worth the money.

The Tents

Terramor Outdoor Resort tents

I’ve glamped in quite a few places around the world, and Terramor’s tents are by far the nicest I’ve stayed in.

All of the tents at Terramor include the following amenities:

  • Electricity and WiFi
  • Plush linens and towels
  • Electric kettle and pour-over coffee setup (including local coffee beans)
  • Wine glasses and bottle opener
  • Portable heater
  • Wool Pendleton blankets
  • Portable cooler
  • White noise machine
  • Lantern
  • Toiletries

I stayed in a Bayberry Tent, which featured a king bed and ensuite bathroom with a large shower (with dual showerheads), sink, and flushing toilet. The tent has had a nice screened-in patio outside with chairs, as well as a private firepit off to the side.

Evenings in Maine definitely get chilly even in the summer, but I was more than comfortable in the tent’s comfortable bed that was topped with Frette linens and Pendleton blankets. There was a small space heater available, but I didn’t need it. 

I appreciated that the tents had electricity, with plenty of places to plug in your phone and other devices, as well as WiFi. I didn’t have cell service in most of Acadia, so the WiFi was appreciated back at Terramor. 

Mornings were still a little chilly, but I loved making coffee using the provided in-room pourover and curling up on the lounge chair on the porch underneath a blanket to start my day.

Terramor Cons

  • The Alder Tent (which I didn’t stay in) don’t feature private bathrooms

  • Shared grills for cooking food must be reserved in advance

Terramor Amenities

Terramor Outdoor Resort Pool

In addition to the 64 glamping tents, there is a beautiful main lodge at Terramor, where you can pick up essentials and souvenirs at a small general store, get help booking activities, find advice on outdoor adventures, or simply sit with a drink and admire the views out the large picture windows. 

Outside the lodge there are lots of games, like cornhole and bocce, as well as an outdoor heated pool and hot tub. 

The lodge is also where you’ll find daily activities the resort puts on for free, like stargazing and live music. 

Terramor Restaurants

The restaurant at Terramor, located in the lodge, offers breakfast and dinner. Guests can also grab packable lunches to take with them as they explore Acadia National Park and the surrounding areas. In the evenings, the dinner menu is simple but delicious—I recommend the wood-fired pizzas. 

The bar is a fun place to grab a drink after a day of hiking. There are a wide variety of regionally brewed beers on tap from craft breweries like Allagash Brewing Company, Lawson’s Finest Liquids, and the local Atlantic Brewing Company. Cocktails and wine are also available. 

For an outdoor dining experience, Terramor offers grilling meal kits curated by the chef. Guests can pick up these kits, which include all the necessary ingredients and tools, and use the on-site grills to cook a delicious chef-inspired grilled meal themselves.
