  • This is a beautiful little spot, we were blessed with a impromptu bagpipe concert the third day in a row that we came. If you were hoping for a history of the area, it is more of a history of ecological developers of the area. I was hoping more for the pioneers of the area.
  • Did not experience the museum, but the foot bridge is iconic, beautiful, and picturesque. This is one of many gems on the "quiet side" of Mount Desert that is really worth consideration when planning a trip to the Acadia region. Stop in and visit Somesville and Southwest Harbor and get a bit off the beaten path.
