We enjoyed our time with our family here. The lawn was perfect for lawn games with a great view of the bay. The window from the great room just constantly gives you great views of the bay. We also enjoyed being half-hour from Bar Harbor and all the activities of Acadia. But we just enjoyed kayaking the coast line, and going across the bay to the opposite side, but we aware that it is much further than expected: at least 45 minutes of kayaking!
