I'm planning a trip to Vinalhaven to stay with friends. We are an active senior couple (50's) who enjoy everything from wilderness camping to posh comforts; ocean kayaks to yachts; taco stands to fine dining. We have a rental car and would like to see Acadia and spend the night nearby before driving up to Nova Scotia. Does anyone have suggestions?
Does enyone know of a "perfect" place to stay in this scenario in the $200 range? "Perfect" means charming, romantic, authentic, good value, possibly sea-side,
I'd like to know about access to the Isle au Haut part of Acadia. is there a ferry from Vinalhaven? Water taxi?
Also, after leaving Vinalhaven, what is the traffic like driving to Bar Harbor in late July?
Thanks for your time.
