Our home is perfectly located on Mt. Desert Island between Somes Sound and Echo Lake in the peaceful village of Hall Quarry. Spend your days enjoying the beauty and adventure of Acadia National Park and return to relax in your “home away from home.” We are a short drive to all island towns, including Bar Harbor, Southwest Harbor, and Northeast Harbor. Many adventures await you including: whale watching, hiking gorgeous mountain or shoreline trails, biking or strolling along 57 miles of carriage roads, kayaking, sailing, golfing, fishing, attending a ranger-led park program, driving the scenic Park Loop Road, taking a ferry to an outlying island for the day, and more! You can also enjoy shopping, museums, community theater, local galleries, antique shops, and wonderful, varied restaurants. Best of all will be returning after a busy day to enjoy the serene setting of our home in Hall Quarry. Take a quiet stroll along the well maintained 1 mile dirt road with almost no cars coming or going. In the early morning or evening you will very likely encounter a few deer along the way as you stroll by acres of pines and small picturesque ponds filled with chirping frogs. Relax on the large front deck looking out into the wooded lot and listen to a multitude of song birds, frogs, and loons calling in the evening from nearby Echo Lake.

About: We moved here from California to work in Acadia National Park as Park Naturalists. During our second winter, actually the next seven, we built our house. I had been a carpenter during college in California and ultimately ended up leaving the Park Service to become a boat builder, which I did for the next 20 years. My wife is a school teacher in a small town on the island. Our two daughters have grown up here; one is in college and the other is getting ready to graduate from high school. Mt. Desert Island is a great vacation getaway, but also an amazing place to live and raise a family. We hope you enjoy it as much as we have!
