Staying on Schoodic Peninsula?

Jump to last reply

I will be in Maine for 4- 5 days in early September. I found what looks to be a lovely oceanfront B&B on the Schoodic Peninsula.

I like the idea of being "off the beaten path" and away from the crowds and I will probably stay in the area at least half the time, but I do want to see Acadia/Bar Harbor and spend some time there as well.

I know it's a 45 minute drive to the Bar Harbor/Acadia area, but does anyone know what the road is like? Is it a pleasant, scenic drive that I wouldn't mind doing RT each day? And does anyone know about the ferry that goes between the two? Is it for cars or just people?

Or would it be wiser to stay closer to Bar Harbor and do Schoodic as a day trip?

TIA.
