Experience Acadia and other outdoor activities with this comfortable inn as your headquarters
When viewers of “Good Morning America” named Acadia National Park the country’s favorite place, they knew what they were talking about. And there’s no place to launch your outdoor vacation along Maine’s rugged coast, including spectacular Acadia, than The Bluenose Inn. Amazing vistas are your reward when you hike the region’s peaks. Other outdoor activities include biking on crushed-stone carriage trails, kayaking and rock climbing. Go on a boat tour, stroll through classic fishing villages or take a day trip to view Prospect Harbor Lighthouse. There’s mini golf, a sandy beach and, back at the comfortable inn, an outdoor (and indoor) pool. After you wake up in your spacious room or suite, head to the Looking Glass Restaurant for blueberry pancakes and lobster eggs Benedict.
