Just got back from our week long trip to Acadia/Bh. It was great! Thank you to all the people that helped me gather info - you know who you are:)
I won't bore you all with the details but here are the highlites:
Eating: trenton lobster pound - excellent!, Geddes (twice) always a favorite, Rosalies Pizza(kid liked it, adults didn't), Poor Boy's gourmet - wonderful!!!, if you go out to Lubec area eat at Uncle Kippies, Havannas- hmmmm....I think it's a bit over-rated, it was definately gourmet food and fancy place, but not my thing, there is a deli on the corner by poor boys' - great food, price and service:), Jordans breakfast of course!, a small place between Trenton and Ellsworth (by airport) called Kathy's for breakfast was good (a bit slow, but homey and great food and cheap), Seafood Ketch in Bass Harbor always a farewell dinner tradition...dinner overlooking the water and sunset and small fishing village.
Hiking: Took it easy and did Seawall, Wonderland, and Jordan Pond. use bathroom at Seawall since none at Wonderland:) They are right by each other. Nice picnic options at Seawall. Jordan Pond was about 3 miles around "pond". Cool in the sense that there are different types of trail on it. Gravel, to climbing over flat boulders, to walking a wooden plank. It's satisfying.
Kayaking: Coastal Kayaking Harbor tour with mark was super!!!! Lucked out and it was just our group of 5 and him:)
Sailing: Best part of whole trip. You gotta go with Karl Brunner on the friendship sloop (original lobster boat). Sails out of NE Harbor and SW harbor. You can charter your own with him, join others, or he has water taxi service to Cranberry islands. sailacadia.com Downeast Friendship Sloop Charters
Misc: carriage ride to Jordan Pond for tea. Nice. About 1/2 hr ride there, 45 mins tea, 1/2 hr back. A nice taste of the roads adn seeing the house. Lumberjack show - very fun! All ages! 2 hr drive to Lubec to see lighthouse, and over to Campobello Island to see FDR cottages - cool to see this area, very different than BH. Good hiking both locations. Gilley Bird Museum, Oceanarium - good on rain day. Reel Pizza and Movie - good on rain night:)
I'm happy to elaborate for anyone who wants more details. I feel we did the town justice!!! My only regret was that I missed my dinner at Maggies! Next time.....
