Jordan Pond House: If you are going in to Acadia or anywhere on MDI and you want to have lunch or afternoon tea and popovers at Jordan Pond House, with stunning views, make sure you make reservations in advance.

Consistently good. Fantastic view of the Bubbles and a moderate cycle ride, if you cycle regularly. Lovely walk around Jordan Pond, or a good hike to Sargent Mtn.
Beautiful lake - you are not allowed to swim in it (drinking water) but you can canoe on it! Great way to get away from the crowds in Acadia. Then you can have Popovers at the Jordan Pond Guesthouse - despite it's touristy location, actually not bad. You can also hike around the lake.
