Mount Desert Island is home to the well-known resort town of Bar Harbor and the quaint and quiet villages of Seal Harbor, Northeast Harbor, Bass Harbor and Southwest Harbor. Sailing, tennis, golf and swimming clubs are located in each of the towns as well as superb restaurants, farmers markets, galleries, shops, libraries, and schools. Music, art, theatre and literature enliven every season. The Bar Harbor Airport offers commercial flights in addition to private aviation facilities, and Bangor International Airport is just an hour away.
The beloved Acadia National Park, also located on Mount Desert Island, provides spectacular, eternal vistas of spruce clad mountains, rugged pink granite coastline and numerous year-round recreational activities. Visitors and locals alike hike its trails, bike and horseback ride the famous carriage roads, and swim, kayak and paddle board in the clear lakes and ponds, as well as cross-country ski miles of groomed trails while exploring new ones with snowshoes. Yachtsmen and boaters enjoy the many offshore islands and conserved waters and shores for sailing, fishing, kayaking, and picnicking. Year round ferry services connect the mainland to the Acadian Archipelago and neighboring island communities of Cranberry, Swans and Frenchboro.
