Schoodic Peninsula image
Winter Harbor, ME
(Range: 2 miles)
The Schoodic Peninsula is the only part of Acadia National Park found on the mainland. It boasts granite headlands that bear erosional scars of storm waves and flood tides. Although similar in scenic splendor to portions of Mount Desert Island, the Schoodic Peninsula is a more secluded area. It is intentionally managed by Acadia National Park as a minimally-developed, low-visitation area. It is about an hour drive from the Hulls Cove Visitor Center on Mount Desert Island. (Curated content from www.nps.gov)

Jordan Pond House is located on the picturesque southern end of Jordan Pond. It has been a scenic, recreational, and dining destination on Mount Desert Island since the nineteenth century. The house serves tea and popovers, as it has since the 1890s, in addition to other dining options. For most park visitors, afternoon tea on the lawn at Jordan Pond House remains a popular tradition. Many hiking trails, carriage roads, and the Park Loop Road provide access to the Jordan Pond House. The original building burned down in 1979, and the current restaurant building was built in 1982. (Curated content from www.nps.gov)
