Interaction with guests
I am available during your stay in a small house somewhat removed from yours. I will give you a tour of the island on the first full day of your stay. I give my guests as much privacy as they want but I am also available for questions. The local lobsterman's phone number is provided so you can order fresh lobsters and there will be brochures for local events in your house.

About the neighbourhood
Gorgeous natural island with striking views and pebble beaches with sea glass. Cliffs on the back side of the island look out at open ocean, lobster boats and seals. Sail boats and canoes are available for rent and the local historical society has regular art shows, concerts and movies, most free of charge.
Getting around
On the island you will have the use of a John Deer Gator. It has 2 bucket seats in front and a little truck-like back. In the basement there are bicycles of many sizes for your riding pleasure.
If you wish to see Acadia parks there is a ferry to the mainland and then a free bus that will drop you off at the park, Bar Harbor and a number of other interesting sights.
Car not needed
How to get there
You have the options of flying into Trenton/Bar Harbor Airport or driving to Northeast Harbor. From there you take a ferry to the island. It is not a car ferry but you will be provided with a gator and bicycles when you arrive.

At the airport you can rent a car or take a taxi to the Harbor. If you are driving you rent a parking spot from the police station. It is $10 per night.
