Sand Beach

The northeastern region of Maine is home to some of the state’s most charming communities and unique maritime history. Mount Desert Island was home to the Wabanaki, “The People of the Dawnland,” and has been a favorite vacation spot for many Mainers and visitors alike for centuries. While the dramatic granite shoreline is perhaps the focal point of the Bold Coast, there are also delightful beaches. Sand Beach in Acadia National Park has 300 yards of soft sandy beach.

The Jordan Pond House landscape is a 42-acre site situated on the southern end of Jordan Pond, an inland lake bound by Penobscot Mountain, Pemetic Mountain, and two rounded mountains called The Bubbles. The landscape is part of Acadia National Park on the eastern coast of Maine. The Jordan Pond House site has been a scenic, recreational, and dining destination since the early nineteenth century. The current Jordan Pond House, which dates to 1982, is a replacement of the original 1847 house. The landscape is significant in areas of conservation, entertainment and recreation, and landscape architecture.

People have been drawn to the rugged coast of Maine throughout history. Awed by its beauty and diversity, early 20th-century visionaries donated the land that became Acadia National Park. The park is home to many plants and animals, and the tallest mountain on the U.S. Atlantic coast. Today visitors come to Acadia to hike granite peaks, bike historic carriage roads, or relax and enjoy the scenery.
