Thunder hole was absolutely gorgeous! The view was incredible and it was very easy access from the road. Depending on when you go it can be foggy, as with my trip. If you're in the area I would highly recommend stopping by!

Absolutely stunning with great views. This is a must do in the area. The clouds roll over the top giving some great opportunities for photographs.

Loved every minute-from the views at the top of Cadillac Mountain, to eating lobster by the bay, it was an incredible visit. Next time I'd really like to rent a bike and explore more of the park and island. Can't wait to come back

Perfect summer weather. So serene. So beautiful! Would love to get a cottage and stay all summer. The people are friendly too! I feel like we barely scratched the surface in 4 days, so we'll be back!

The views from Cadillac Mountain are great - clear day you can see 100 miles - the rugged coast is worth exploring - a stop at the blow hole is ok - depends on the tide and weather if you really see breaking waves

This is second time we visit the area. We did 12 years ago, when our kids were little and loved it. Now they are teenagers and we were a bit apprehensive if they would enjoy it as much as before, and the answer is "yes"....More

Stunning views by the roadside, Mount Desert Island embodies the rugged seacoast and beauty of Maine. We enjoyed driving the winding roads and pulling over at different overlooks to see stunning views.
