Author and Maine resident Kathleen M. Brandes also features Acadia’s outlying locales of Schoodic Point, Isle au Haut, and Baker Island, as well as the surrounding Mount Desert Island villages – Bar Harbor, Southwest Harbor, and Northeast Harbor – with current information for park visitors on lodgings, restaurants, museums, and shops.
