Nestled at the edge of the woods and Acadia National Park, Harbourside Inn in Northeast Harbor, Maine offers our guests quiet relaxation a short walk from the downtown village and marina, and an easy drive to all the highlights Mount Desert Island offers. Built in 1888, our guestrooms are decorated in the period and are light and airy. Wooded trails honeycomb the area behind the Inn, perfect for a short stroll or as a launching point to hiking Acadia's nearby mountains or visiting the local azalea and perennial gardens. Harbourside Inn offers a quiet, peaceful and relaxing retreat.
