Tips from locals
View this bridge from the Bucksport waterfront about 20 minutes south of the Cottage, and drive to the far side at the Fort Knox area and go up into the highest bridge observatory in the WORLD! Great views await at the top.
The Penobscot Narrows Bridge is extremely grand and unique and whether you take the stairs or the elevator to the top, the views are worthwhile! It's incredible.
Penobscot Narrows Bridge is a cable-stayed bridge, which is quite beautiful in and of itself, but it's also the home of the Penobscot Narrows Bridge Observatory, which is the tallest public bridge observatory in the world. There is a one-minute elevator ride that takes you approx. 437 feet above…
Fantastic bridge with a wonderful tour to the top of one leg of the bridge. A must!

“Historic Fort Knox Is about 24 mins (15.8 miles) from Mountain Edge Suite. The fort was named for Major General Henry Knox, America's first Secretary of War, who was born in Boston but retired to Thomaston, Maine in 1796. The fort garrisoned its first troops from 1863 to 1866. These troops were mostly volunteers undergoing training before being sent to their active posts, and included members of the celebrated 20th Maine.”

“Schoodic Peninsula, the only part of Acadia National Park found on the mainland, boasts granite headlands that bear erosional scars of storm waves and flood tides. Although similar in scenic splendor to portions of Mount Desert Island, the Schoodic Coast is a more secluded area. It is about an hour drive from the Hulls Cove Visitor Center on Mount Desert Island.”

“Typical roadside seafood shack; nothing fancy but a great spot to satisfy your fried food craving and follow up with a sundae! Lobster rolls and fried clams are a great deal.”
