One of the treasures of Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park is Echo Lake. This beautiful lake, situated in the center of Mount Desert Island, is a haven for kayakers and swimmers alike. The water is so fresh and, and beauty of lake is so peaceful and relaxing. Staying in a fun cottage right on Echo Lake makes for a very memorable vacation for families and friends.
