The Inn's History

This beautifully situated mansion overlooks the harbor and outer islands off Mt. Desert.  Built in 1910 as a private residence, Grey Rock Inn has been a gathering place hosting many of the famous families that built their homes in Northeast Harbor. With warmth and charm, Grey Rock offers elegant rooms that are pleasingly decorated to assure your pleasure and relaxation.  Fireplaces are featured throughout the public rooms and many of the bedrooms, and all are rooms with a view. 

Grey Rock enjoys seven acres of beautiful alpine trails bounded on two sides by Acadia national Park.  You can hike through virgin forests passing magnificent granite cliffs covered with lichen and moss while glimpsing ocean views on your way up to a 360 degree panorama from the summit of Norumbega Mountain.  My two sons, Adam and Karl, have lived at Grey Rock for more than 30 years and have explored most of the 200 miles of carriage and hiking trails that criss-cross through Acadia national park.  They are available everyday to help you with your holiday itinerary, which may include whale-watches, naturalist boat tours to the outer islands, sailing in antique wooden sloops, visits to island museums and local flower gardens, birdwatching walks, or horse-and-carriage rides in the park. 

Grey Rock is a seven minute walk to the picturesque village of Northeast Harbor with its old-fashioned quality shops and also to our marina which is a famous yachting basin.  Goodness!  After all this fun, it's time to come back to your home base at Grey Rock and relax with afternoon tea or to browse through my wonderful collection of books, or to discuss your dinner reservations at our favorite restaurants.

Inn Distractions:

Driving:  After passing through Ellsworth get on Route 3/198 South, onto Mt. Desert Island.  Just after you come onto the Island, the road forks, bear RIGHT onto Route 102.  Proceed until you come to a traffic light.  Turn LEFT at the light, onto Route 3/198.  Continue STRAIGHT on Rte. 3/198 toward Northeast Harbor.  Just before you reach town, bordering the National Park you will see our sign on the RIGHT hand side of the road. Continue past the Inn toward the Village or Marina, reverse direction and enter drive from opposite direction.

Flying:  The local airport is on Route 3, just before you get onto the island.  Cabs and rental cars are available, be sure to call ahead during the high season. Bangor International Airport is only 50 miles due west from our Greyrock Inn.
