A Bar Harbor home is built from the ground up — literally.
From the unsigned “Letter from Home” column in our July 1967 issue.
When you tire of lobster, consider the pizza — specifically, the superb brick-oven pies at Sweet Pea’s Café.
Acadia puts an extra rugged spin on the iconic Maine postcard view of the lit tower standing stoically against the shore. Throw your lighthouse expectations out the window: those in and near the park are all a bit quirky in location and/or design.
If you’ve ever cracked into a lobster and thought, “Hmm, this would be better a la mode,” then Ben & Bill’s Chocolate Emporium in downtown Bar Harbor is your place.
Grab a seat under the big canopy maple, sip from the smart microbrew and wine list, and languidly toss a few balls on the bocce court.
The relationship between the Wabanaki and Acadia is millennia-old, complex, and ongoing.
