'l’Isle des Monts Désert': “The Island of Barren Mountains,” named by Samuel de Champlain when he first sighted it in 1604, Mount Desert Island lies just off the rugged coast of Downeast Maine, with Frenchman Bay to the East and Blue Hill Bay to the West. Its twenty-six domed granite summits seemingly rise straight out of the Atlantic, and trap more than twenty glistening fresh water lakes and ponds between their flanks.
On this compact yet dramatic island you will find some 30,000 acres of Acadia National Park, preserved by foresighted and benevolent conservation pioneers for your amazement and enjoyment. Over 130 miles of hiking trails and 57 miles of impeccable, car-free carriage roads, you can enjoy everything from a casual stroll to a highly technical climb. Perhaps even a horse-drawn carriage ride through the park?

Island Experience: While here, be sure to visit the island’s other villages: Northeast Harbor, with its grand cottages and yacht-filled harbor, and Southwest Harbor on the “quiet side”, across Somes Sound. Here you will find numerous boat-building operations, birthplace of some of the finest sailboats afloat. Nearby, seek out the Bass Harbor Light, so beloved of photographers and painters. Or, for a taste of real Maine island life, ride one of the many ferries servicing the several tiny island communities off Mount Desert’s shores.
