“Nature's Wonderland”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Mount Desert Island is truly a gem! Breathtaking views and trails lead one to this fantasy of wilderness. There's something for everyone. To nature walks, hikes, biking, fine dining and great shops in a true New England setting. Great Bed and Breakfast Inns, to luxury hotels, to the quaint village motels.
