Perfect summer weather. So serene. So beautiful! Would love to get a cottage and stay all summer. The people are friendly too! I feel like we barely scratched the surface in 4 days, so we'll be back!

The views from Cadillac Mountain are great - clear day you can see 100 miles - the rugged coast is worth exploring - a stop at the blow hole is ok - depends on the tide and weather if you really see breaking waves

This is second time we visit the area. We did 12 years ago, when our kids were little and loved it. Now they are teenagers and we were a bit apprehensive if they would enjoy it as much as before, and the answer is "yes"....More

Stunning views by the roadside, Mount Desert Island embodies the rugged seacoast and beauty of Maine. We enjoyed driving the winding roads and pulling over at different overlooks to see stunning views.

Visisting Acadia and Bar Harbor were so worth the distance. HIking, bikes, exploring, shopping, etc- there is so much to do! We only wish we had more time to explore the island.

The Loop is a picturesque 28 or 29 mile journey around Acadia National Park. Wonderful scenery. Pristine northern New England.
