Wonder no more.

We just added a series of pages to this blog, with links to Acadia year-round lodging, restaurants, businesses and cultural institutions.

You can link to the introductory page on the top menu of this blog, or by going here.

And from that page, you can go to a series of listings for Bar Harbor; Isle au Haut and Stonington; Schoodic Peninsula; Southwest Harbor and Tremont; and the town of Mount Desert.

As you can see from the dozens of listings, Acadia can be viewed as a four-season destination, with plenty of hotels, motels and B&Bs to choose from, and a variety of dining experiences to pick from as well.

There are links to individual businesses’ Web sites or Facebook pages, and TripAdvisor(R) reviews where available. We’re an affiliated partner of TripAdvisor(R). Any reservations you may make through links on this blog are the same price as if you went directly to the partner’s Web site. A small affiliate fee helps support this blog.
