The Claremont Hotel

The Claremont Hotel

Predating Acadia National Park by 35 years, the 1884 Claremont is a throwback to the early days of Mount Desert Island leisure and opulence. There’s a vibe of old-school gentility to a croquet game on the immense lawn that slopes towards the water—as well as to watching it from a wicker-backed rocking chair on the wraparound porch.
