We offer some of the best oceanside views of Acadia National
Park on Mount Desert Island. Located in Southwest Harbor near the southern entrance to Somes Sound, the only
natural fjord on the eastern US coast, you will treasure the panoramic landscape of mountains, ocean, and harbor
Our historic oceanside inn will give you the feeling that you
have been transported to a simpler time and place with its nautical
theme, period antiques, and mariner appointments such as finely
detailed ship models, maps, and tools.
Relax along the shore, have a BBQ, cook some marshmallows over the open fire, or take your shoes off and walk
in the water. We have bikes for your enjoyment or you may take some boating or sailing lessons through Mansell
Boat Rentals located on the same property. If experienced, you may rent larger craft to get a closer view
of Bear Island Lighthouse or visit
