Northeast Harbor is a village on Mount Desert Island, located in the town of Mount Desert in Hancock County, Maine, United States. The village has a significant summer population, and has long been a quiet enclave of the rich and famous. Summer residents include the Rockefeller family, as well as the late Brooke Astor and Barbara Bel Geddes. The village was at a time so popular as a summer resort among Philadelphians that it was sometimes known as “Philadelphia on the rocks”.

Over the years, Northeast Harbor, Maine, has become famous as much for its summertime residents as it has for its beautiful and protected harbor full of exclusive yachts and sailing vessels. You may be surprised to hear that its actually not an official township but rather part of the town of Mount Desert which covers 25,699 acres and has an approximate population of 2,109 (per the year 2000 census). Northeast Harbor is located on the southern end of Mount Desert Island at the entrance to Somes Sound – the only fjord on the east coast of the United States. Acadia National Park is closeby for easy access.

This part of Mount Desert Island is often referred to as the “quiet side” for its slower and more relaxed pace when compared to the better known Bar Harbor. Northeast Harbor has a feeling of understated “class” in a Maine coastal way. There are several small and attractive boutiques, some great galleries, and great places to eat including a very good bakery right on the Main Street. Park the car and walk around around visiting the various businesses donwtown.
