Welcome to the quiet southern side of Mt. Desert Island.

Northeast Harbor, Maine. As part of the town of Mt. Desert, this quaint Maine vacation spot might not receive the fanfare of other Mt. Desert Island travel destinations, but therein lies much of its secluded magic. With an impressive row of colorful shops, million dollar coastal homes, some unassuming restaurants with wonderful food, and a beautiful protected harbor surrounded by pleasing hills, Northeast Harbor quietly mesmerizes you. It's the type of place you would expect Maine to look like, but can't quite locate in this world of hyped-up vacation destinations. Northeast Harbor is the "real deal," a place for the wealthy to call their summer home and the rest of us to enjoy a few days of unforgettable scenery and relaxation.
