A national wonder…
Acadia National Park is mystic in its beauty and abundant in activity
Sprawling across the rocky studded coastline of Downeast Maine and Mount Desert Island, Acadia National Park hosts 49,000 acres of natural wilderness, rocky beaches, and granite carved mountains that meet the ocean, it’s an explorers’ paradise.
The park includes a host of unique sites and wonders including the famous Otter Cliffs, Thunder Hole, Sand Beach, Jordan Pond House, and 1,527 foot Cadillac Mountain – the tallest mountain on the Atlantic coast and certain times of year first to see the sunrise in the continental United States.
Ideal for hiking and biking, the park offers 50 miles of Rockefeller’s historic Carriage Roads, 120 miles of hiking trails, and the 27 mile Park Loop Road. Explorers can also enjoy the many lakes for swimming and take advantage of the beautiful coastline and surrounding islands with one of many kayak tours.
Scenic beauty of Maine’s ocean shoreline, coastal forests and mountain silhouettes is nowhere more accessible than in Acadia National Park.
With its breathtaking oceanfront views and convenient location, the Balance Rock Inn is an ideal Acadia National Park lodging option.
