There are so many different activities, restaurants, day trips, hikes, and events on Mount Desert Island, it can be difficult to choose. We are happy to recommend restaurants or suggest an itinerary. We can also give you insider  details of our local offerings, so you can make just the right choice. Take a look at our calendar on the Inn page, which features current area happenings for more ideas.
