We visited the Stables this summer and absolutely loved our Carriage Ride with Emily, and her beautiful horses Pete and Gub! We also had the privilege of listening to Emily who really knew a lot about the Island, the area and it's history. We hope to get back for another ride in the future! The Family running the Stables does... More

Our group of 8 went on the Rockefeller's bridges tour on the carriage roads. It was a relaxing way to experience some of the park and learn about the history of Acadia.

We went on a two hour tour. We loved every second of it! Our carriage driver was so knowledgeable and friendly. The scenery is so beautiful. We learned a lot about the area and how Mr. Rockefeller had a direct and positive influence regarding so many different aspects of the Acadia area including some of the roads and bridges and...

Travel on the carriage roads on a horse-drawn wagon. Each wagon carries 10-12 people with narrator/tour guide. Various tours are offered, ranging from 1 - 2 hours. We have done 2 different tours over the past 3 years - both were excellent. good for school-aged kids; preschoolers - may be okay with the 1 hour ride. You an bring your... More

My wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary with a trip to Acadia National Park in early June, 2015. We chose the Day Mountain trip which was expertly guided by two lovely young ladies, Taylor and Cat, and of course two stunning horses - Percheron I think - Yogi and Boo Boo. Taylor and Cat were very informative and interactive... More

The staff are very knowledgeable, friendly and the horses and carriages are beautiful!!! You have to try both of the 2 hour tours. They are very pet friendly, We got to take our Boston terrier for his first carriage ride. This is a must do on any ones list of places to go when visiting Acadia National Park.

Had a great tour of the carriage trails and bridges, they can't show all the bridges some are not in areas of the horse trails, and I liked that the horses are cared for and have many breaks. Our carriage ride was very enjoyable..
