Ellsworth is the county seat of Hancock County and bills itself as the "Gateway to Downeast Maine and Acadia National Park." Located along scenic Highway 1 near Graham Lake and the Atlantic seacoast, the Ellsworth area abounds with deep forests, quiet harbors, tranquil lakes, rocky shorelines and outdoor recreation. Dining in Ellsworth is a treat and includes fresh clam chowder and lobsters right off the boat and prepared to your liking. Ellsworth is a mixture of small historic town and modern conveniences and makes a perfect base from which to explore Downeast Maine's coastal beauty. Spend the day looking for antiques in the area's quaint towns and villages, explore the tidepools in the harbor or relax by the water's edge. Ellsworth is just minutes to Lamoine State Park, which has beautiful views of Frenchman's Bay. The Bay is an inlet of the Atlantic Ocean with the eastern shore being the mainland and the western shore being Mt. Desert Island. Most of Mt. Desert Island is covered by the Acadia National Park, with its' stunning scenery and abundant recreational possibilities such as hiking, biking, sea kayaking, canoeing, fishing, snorkeling, sailing and camping. The tourist town of Bar Harbor is located on Mt. Desert Island and has a charming shopping district with unique shops, art galleries, cafes and restaurants. Nestled in the heart of all of this is Ellsworth, a quintessential New England town.
