What an incredible, enchanting, mesmerizing delight — a feast for all your senses — just outside of Ellsworth (Maine), on Route 1a, the GATEWAY to Acadia.

We saw the building in June 2017, the first time we went to Acadia via Bangor (and Route 1a) rather than the longer (and maybe the more scenic) Route 1.

In 2017 it was empty. We thought that that was a great shame.

In June 2018 as we drove by we saw activity and stopped. They said they were going to be opening next week! We were excited.

This June we stopped. And aren’t we glad we did.

What a place. Creativity and imagination run riot. And a treasure trove of wonderful STUFF. Not badly priced either. Yes, individual consignment stalls and it all blends together into a tantalizing whole. We could have spent hours there BUT we know we will stop each and every time we go to Acadia and we go to Acadia quite a lot.

You have to stop, explore and enjoy. You will love it and memories will stay with you for a long time.

Enjoy.

Just a quick, basically random shoot. As is so often the case with my life these days I was in a rush. So, I did not have the time nor the inclination for a studied, studious, diligent shoot. t was basically a matter of point-and-shoot, click … click … click. Some came out quite decently. That pleased I. Hope you enjoy. More to come. Cheers.

A wonderful place. We wouldn’t dream of staying anywhere else (unless they are closed for the Winter, as was the case when we went up in March last year). That we have stayed there 8-times and are already planning to go should be endorsement enough. It has a palpable, upbeat but soothing atmosphere. You feel ‘on-top-of-the-world’ and it isn’t just that you are high up. That helps.

You can’t beat the location. You can be within the Park, on the famous Loop Road, in less than 2-minutes! Ditto for the Hannaford’s in Bar Harbor. Extremely friendly, obligingly and pleasant staff. We now consider many of them friends, and they us. We look forward to seeing them.

It is not the height of luxury and parts of it show its (considerable) age. But the three rooms we have stayed in have been very comfortable, more spacious than normal and commanded compelling views. And all the rooms, moreover, come with a fridge and microwave. But, you don’t have to worry about making your own breakfast. A ‘buffet’, DIY hot breakfast is included. We always start our day with that. Oh, did I mention the HEATED swimming pool that I make use of, much. Plus. this year they have upgraded their Wi-Fi (which was never that bad to begin with). So, that was an added bonus. Fast, reliable Internet.

You have to check it out. Yes, we have only stayed in the more (maybe most) expensive rooms — but they have, nonetheless, still been affordable and competitive.

Unreserved kudos. Stay in one of the refurbished rooms and you will love it.
