Accommodations & Meals
While you improve your English at Acadia Center, enjoy delicious, home-cooked and catered lunches and dinners. Meals at Acadia Center, featuring fresh local seafood, and meat, vegetables, and fruit from local farms, are plentiful, healthy, and delicious. Desserts include fruit, ice cream, and homemade pies and cakes. See a sample weekly menu.
Mondays through Fridays teachers and/or hosts, all native English speakers, eat lunch and dinner with you, so every meal also provides great opportunity for English conversation practice.
On the weekends you can sample some of the many local restaurants offering everything from lobster to fine Mediterranean cuisine to spicy Mexican food to pizza.
Self-serve breakfast seven days per week is included in the standard accommodation plan. Just let your hosts know what you like for breakfast and they will make sure it’s in the kitchen for you every morning.
The standard accommodation plan, which is included in the course package, is a private room in a family home near Acadia Center. Each room has a comfortable bed, a desk or table, chair, and lamp, a dresser and/or a closet. Students share a bathroom with no more than two other students or hosts.
Most students prefer the value and opportunity for English conversation practice in the standard accommodation plan. However, if you prefer to stay in a private apartment, hotel, or bed-and-breakfast, we will discount your course fee by $150 per week, and you pay for the hotel or apartment directly to the hotel or apartment owner. Costs for accommodations in a hotel or apartment vary widely depending on availability, time of year, and the type of apartment or hotel, and range from $600 to $1200 per week for a 1-bedroom apartment (kitchen, living room, bedroom with private bath), and $150+ per night for a room with private bath in a hotel or bed-and-breakfast. If you would like our help in finding an apartment or hotel, please ask; hotels and apartments book up quickly, especially in the high season of June-September, so please make your reservations as early as you can.
