Welcome to the

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
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.
