Welcome to Down East Maine

Photo: Captain Nathan Clark HouseThe Captain Nathan Clark House has been in our family for seven generations and is the perfect place for you and your family to experience the magic of a Maine vacation. We are located across the street from the harbor in Southwest Harbor, on Mount Desert Island, a short drive from the other major towns on the island, Bar Harbor and Northeast Harbor. Within walking distance you will find the quaint town of Southwest Harbor with its restaurants, bike rental, sailing, boating, and boutique shopping. Some of the town's famous places are Beal's Lobster pound, Sawyer's Market, Xanthus Restaurant, Red Sky Restaurant, Fiddler's Green Restaurant, and the Wendell Gilley Museum.

You will enjoy spectacular harbor views, beautiful sunsets, quiet times, and many activities in nearby Acadia National Park. The Rockefeller family constructed beautiful carriage roads throughout the park in which you can enjoy on foot, in a horsedrawn carriage, or by bike.

Come and stay at one of the most beautiful places in the United States. Experience a quiet family vacation or one with friends. Be active or just kick back and read a book— all while enjoying the fresh air and pristine views.
