Experience Bar Harbor's gilded age with a visit to the turn-of-the-century La Rochelle Mansion on this lovely adventure that includes magnificent views from the 1,532-foot summit of Cadillac Mountain. Set off by motorcoach to the base of the mountain, enjoying commentary about the founding of Acadia National Park, then take in the views as you drive to the top of the highest point on the North American east coast. Panoramic vistas abound, stretching over the island-studded coastline of the Gulf of Maine. Continue on to La Rochelle, the finest Victorian mansion in Bar Harbor. Relive the bygone age in this elegant Georgian Revival mansion built in 1902-1903 for George Sullivan Bowdoin, the partner and treasurer of J.P. Morgan and great-grandson of Alexander Hamilton. A guided tour led by a docent from the Historical Society showcases this 13,000-square-foot lavish chateaux, exquisitely furnished and situated on two acres of land overlooking Frenchman's Bay. Return to port with a camera filled with memories via a scenic route.
