Try a Few

Greg A. Hartford, photographer, author, publisherMany of the inns on Mount Desert Island, Maine have historic roots and there are a wide variety of offerings and locations to choose from. Were it not for the tragic fire of 1947, there would be many more. Rather than stay at the same inn each year, consider sampling a few, perhaps even in different parts of the island. You might also consider add a stay at an inn near the Schoodic Peninsula portion of Acadia National Park. Whatever you choose, it is largely about location and the service that you receive. You should find the people of Maine very friendly with a homespun warmth. Occasionally, you may even hear a bit of that Downeast accent that is so prevalent in this part of coastal Maine. The staff is here to help, provide some suggestions, and answer your questions. Nevertheless, print out a few of the pages to take with you. They can come in real handy when planning your day, or when in your car with no one to call.
