                          Bass Harbor is host to Bass Harbor Light, one of the many lighthouses on Mt Desert Island. Your camera will get a work out in this incredible vacation resort! Acadia National Park has an entrance just a few miles away. There you can hike casually or challenge yourself on trails like 'Precipice' that take you skyward. Jordan Pond offers afternoon tea in elegant fashion. Kayaking and water sports abound. Sail on the Schooner 'Mary Todd' or spend a day at a whale or seal watch. Having your lobster dinner cooked outdoors in salt water on real wood-burning stoves is a treat you will long remember. Don't forget to save room for Maine blueberry pie!
