We always take our guests here for the tea and popovers! Service is good, friendly waiters and waitresses, and the food is always good, whether for lunch or dinner.

Looks more like a small lake to me. Nice walk and pretty color Not too crowded although there were lots of folks there. The boardwalk is easy. We didn't make it all around so cant comment on the rocky section.

We never miss visiting Jordan Pond at Acadia National Park. It's a spectacular setting at any time of year, but especially so in the Fall. The 3-mile trail around the pond is so fun to do year after year. If you do it clockwise, there are stretches of "Boardwalk", a couple of easy rock scrambles, and then a long easy... More

We walked around the whole lakeshore. It was beautiful and the autumn colours were just beginning. It's an easy walk that's well worth doing for the views.

The trail around Jordan Pond offers beautiful views of the Bubbles and other features of Acadia. The section of the trail that follows a boardwalk along one long shore of the pond is a nuisance when the trail is crowded, as it's too narrow for hikers to pass each other without stepping aside.

The trail offers some great views of Jordon pond. While we were there we stopped at the Jordon Pond House and had some of their Popovers while enjoying the view of the lake

The locals recommended this place for a good hike. It was absolutely breathtaking! The trail was very well maintained and easy to walk and the views of the lake and surroundings were amazing!

This is a beautiful walk and worth the time if you have it. As you go down tot he pond from the Jordan Pond House if you take the right side it will be easy and you can turn around at the stone walk at the stream. This is mentioned for those who may have small children, elderly, or strollers.... More

A beautiful view across Jordan Pond and we had no problem with parking. Then all spoilt by going to restaurant for an afternoon tea . I have never had to ring in advance anywhere just to have a drink and book a table! Didn't bother as could have been waiting a very long time

We went back twice to walk around the lake, once on a cloudy day and then on a sunny one.Both were lovely. The Autumn leaves made it exceptionally stunning. It is an easy and level walk suitable for all . The damaged and fallen tree trunks along the side of the water are stunning in their shape and form. If... More
