Area Information

Our location is in Bar Harbor, near Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park

Acadia National Park, near Bar Harbor, Maine, is over 49,000 acres of rock-bound coast on Mount Desert Island, a portion of the Schoodic Peninsula on the mainland and offshore islands. Here you will find granite cliffs side by side with sand and cobblestone beaches. Glacier-carved mountains rise from the sea, cupping deep lakes in their valleys. Here, too, are meadows and marshes and dense evergreen forests. Everywhere the ocean makes its presence felt, whether by sight, sound, or smell.

Cadillac Mountain: At 1,530 feet, Cadillac Mountain is not only the tallest mountain in the park, but also the tallest mountain along the eastern coast of the United States.

 

Park Loop Road: The 27-mile Park Loop Road system offers outstanding views of the park’s ocean shoreline, coastal forests, and mountain silhouettes.

 

Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse: Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse is the only lighthouse on Mount Desert Island.
