Bar Harbor & Acadia National Park

In the 19th century Bar Harbor was home to the largest hotel in North America and to Millionaires’ Row, a line of spectacular summer estates built for America’s richest and most powerful families — including the Rockefellers, the Fords, the Vanderbilts, the Carnegies, the Astors and the Morgans. Bar Harbor continues to draw visitors by the thousands, many of who nowadays are attracted by the town’s microbreweries.  And the area’s brilliant fall foliage has stretched the traditional summer season well into October.

Acadia National Park, established in 1919, is home to stunning mountains, lakes and sea cliffs which can be viewed from a number of vantage points including the park’s loop road, which is open to cars; the historic carriage roads, which are closed to car traffic; and 125 miles of trails, exclusively for hiking.

Please accept my thanks for organising our trip to New England etc. All arrangements worked exactly as arranged and we were particularly pleased with the standard of hotels used.
The itinerary too was good and we loved Kennebunkport, Stowe and Jackson. We were well looked after in all locations, although slightly less so at Von Trapp hotel that was less personal because of their size, but the experience itself was welcome.
