It is just a short drive to Acadia National Park, the Schoodic Peninsula, Bar Harbor and all points Downeast.

Artists, writers, nature lovers and honeymooners will find the peaceful solitude well suited for a relaxing retreat. Tidal waters offer an ever changing coastline with a gravel beach, granite outcroppings, clam flats, mussel beds and an abundance of waterbirds and seals. The area is ideal for kayaking, biking, hiking or just watching the constant color changes on the water as the day passes. Enjoy watching the lobster fishermen tend their traps and catch your dinner. This is a special place!
