Automobiles were prohibited in Bar Harbor until 1913.  Until that time horses, horse drawn carriages and wagons were the standard modes of transportation. Our carriages, be they for a historical downtown tour, a wedding or a special occasion, offer our passengers the opportunity of experiencing the romantic tranquility of those by-gone days.

FARM TOURS

Schedule a farm tour and see what a life is like on a working farm.  Meet the horses, goats and chickens - it's a fun time and a learning experience.  We also invite guests to try their hand at ground driving one of our horses. Tour the rural countryside on a ride in our farm carriage.  Great for the entire family.  Farm tours last approximately 90 minutes.
