There are many beautiful mountain top or seaside walks on the quiet side of Acadia National Park.  Ship Harbor, Wonderland, and Beech Mountain are but a few sights to see.  Cafe Drydock and Inn is located opposite the Village Green in the center of Southwest Harbor.  You will be within a five minute drive to many activities, including sailing, canoeing, golfing, swimming and biking.  Make Cafe Drydock and Inn your comfortable accommodations while experiencing your island adventures.We have 8 rooms and are not a bed and breakfast but a small inn.
