Best Route BOS to Acadia NP/Bar Harbour

Going for the first time to Acadia National Park. We'll be leaving on Thursday afternoon, and returning on Sunday; we'd like to get there quickly. Any recommendations on which would be a better route?

Option 1: From Boston take I-95 north to Augusta, Maine; from Augusta take Route 3 east to Ellsworth and on to Mount Desert Island

Option 2: Take I-95 north to Bangor, Maine; from Bangor take Route 1A east to Ellsworth; from Ellsworth take Route 3 to Mount Desert Island.

#2 is quicker, #1 more coastal/scenic.

Thanx a mint joesorce.

I tried checking thru Mapquest but it doesn't provide an option for taking Rte 3 from Augusta to Ellsworth.

Do you know approximately how much quicker it is taking the Bangor route?
