"From its perch above Long Pond on beautiful Mount Desert Island the Eyrie, summer home of John D. Rockefeller, Jr. overlooks the ocean off the rockbound coast of Maine." Text taken from the back of postcard. Long Pond is near Seal Harbor. It is also called "Little" Long Pond. There is a carriage road that follows its south side, but it is not within Acadia National Park. The Eyrie was built in 1914 and demolished in 1962.
