Location: The Atlantic Oakes
With views of Frenchman Bay from every room, the Atlantic Oakes is located on Mount
Desert Island, home of Acadia National Park.

spectacular beauty and a wide variety of vacation activities. Acadia
National Park offers scenic driving, hiking, bicycling, swimming,
fishing, and boating.

entrance to Acadia National Park. The Atlantic Oakes features 750
feet of waterfront on Frenchman Bay, with a pebble beach and private
pier. There are also five tennis courts (two lighted), an indoor
