Location Tips

The Highbrook is exactly one mile to the Town Pier in the center of the Downtown area.

You can walk from the Highbrook Motel to the Downtown area via sidewalk along Eden Street.

You can access the Park Loop Road for touring Acadia or the Carriage Roads of Acadia via West Street Extension, from right behind the Highbrook.

There is a connector trail beginning at our neighboring property which connects to Duck Brook Road in Acadia. This is a great path to go for a walk in the park right from our location.
