Over the years, Northeast Harbor, Maine, has become famous as much for its summertime residents as it has for its beautiful and protected harbor full of exclusive yachts and sailing vessels. You may be surprised to hear that its actually not an official township but rather part of the town of Mount Desert which covers 25,699 acres and has an approximate population of 2,109 (per the year 2000 census). Northeast Harbor is located on the southern end of Mount Desert Island at the entrance to Somes Sound - the only fjord on the East coast of the United States.
