Asticou Inn @ NE Harbor

Northeast Harbor is on the Mount Desert Island in Maine. It has a few famous residents, such as the Rockefellers and Brook Astor. It also known as “Philadelphia on the rocks” for many people from Phillys.

Won’t return – the Azalea garden is better!

It is at the west side of the Mount Desert Island, which is far less popular than their east side Bar Harbor. Their Main Street is short, sweet and one way only.

The restaurant is at the namesake inn, which opens May to October only. Unfortunately it’s a little windy and cold, they closed the deck. Our table is by the window. The view of NE Harbor is nice. Good service. Good food – crab cake is good. Overall, food is on the expensive side. A cup soup costs $11 – the same price at Bar Harbor Inn, which is a notch above, buys you a bowl. The Aveleda white is pretty good tho. A persistent fly just won’t leave us alone. Bathroom is a floor below, it has no soap. Fake purple flower …

Cross the street is their garden which is really worth your time.


After lunch, we hiked on Lower Hadlock Pond, and I won’t recommend it.
