We were excited to search for the lost stone house built back in the mid 1800's. This was one of the old lost trails of Acadia National Park. It's no longer listed on the maps of Acadia. It seemed to be a mystery as to who lived here or owned the property. To find this place we drove on route 233 in Bar Harbor and parked in the Eagle Lake boat launch parking area. The path we were looking for is not marked and no longer part of the Park trails so no signs leading the way and unless searching for it and knowing where you are looking you might walk right past it. At Eagle Lake boat launch I was reminded of the topography of the lake, we find this to be the biggest fresh water lake in the park, it is 436 acres, with an average depth from 50 feet to max depth of 110. This lake is the same as Jordan Pond in that it is a drinking source and no swimming allowed. You can walk completely around the lake 6.1 miles as it is a loop trail. After parking the car we headed toward the left hand side of the carriage road. The carriage road was very easy to walk. We walked for about twenty five minutes stopping a few times for neat pics along the way. The photos below I found on-line shows directions to the path leading to the house.
