Brutal Drive thru the Night But SO Worth It!

A travel blog entry by robertsonfamily on Jul 13, 2013

... It's great. Fully stocked kitchen, linens, and super clean. We didn't want to stay in Bar Harbor. Too many people. We can jump on the Island Explorer bus anytime we want free of charge and can go anywhere on Mount Desert Island which makes it very easy. Our first hike was out to the Bass Harbor Lighthouse. It was a great ease in for our first hike. I think it was approximately ...

Tummies growling, we followed the roads toward our campground while scouting food. We stopped at ...
