Green Mountain hotel, Mt. Desert Island, ca. 1885

Contributed by Acadia National Park


The Green Mountain House was a hotel located at the top of Green Mountain (now Cadillac) on Mt. Desert Island.

Guests took the Steamer Wauwinet on Eagle Lake to the base of the mountain where they then boarded the Green Mountain Railway to go to the summit of the mountain.

The hotel burned and was immediately rebuilt. The railroad stopped operations in 1890.
