              Car: Necessary

              The Dock House offers a private, idyllic setting, yet you are surrounded by Acadia National Park and the opportunity to hike, bike, swim, sail, or just relax and get away from it all. I really enjoy taking a sunset cruise over to Islesford and having a gourmet meal in the charming restaurant right on the water.
