Finding Cleftstone Manor
Coming from Ellsworth on Route 3, you will cross a bridge at the head of the island. From here you are about 15 minutes away. Take the left fork, and follow Route 3 until you pass the Days Inn on the right. Travel 1/4 mile farther you will see a road on your right and the large, brown Cleftstone Manor directly ahead.
Driving to Bar Harbor
Bar Harbor is easily accessible by car. From Boston (268 miles/about 5.5 to 6 hours, and from Portland about 3.5 hours) follow I-95 through to Bangor (exit 182-A - 395), then pick up on Route 1A to Ellsworth, and follow Route 3 to Bar Harbor. Another route would be to take I-95 to Augusta, take Route 3 to Belfast over to Route 1 to Ellsworth, then back to Route 3 into Bar Harbor. There is also the coastal Route 1. It meanders thought picturesque villages and takes quite a bit longer to reach Bar Harbor.
Bar Harbor is serviced by a local airport, the Hancock County Airport, located just 12 miles from the village, and by Bangor International Airport only 50 miles (about 1 hour) away.
During the summer months, Bar Harbor is serviced by Greyhound/Vermont Transit from Boston. Since schedules vary, it is best to check with the bus line.
