The dramatic granite coastline, the smell of sea salt in the air, the thrum of lobster boats in the harbors – Mount Desert Island is quintessential Maine, as relaxing or as busy as you choose to make it.

Whether you’re seeking the tranquility of an off-season walk on the winding roads of Acadia National Park or the bustle of Bar Harbor in mid-summer, you’ll be happy to call Mount Desert Island home.
