A small resort town on mount desert island in maine, once held summer residents such as FDR, Edgar Allan Poe and thank goodness, not marthas stewart. (She's in the neighboring Seal Harbor). Everyone will wake up early for Breakfast at the colonels, followed by lunch at the swim club. Mixed doubles on tennis club road always draws a crowd and who doesn't enjoy sunset service. Afternoons are spent on the water sailing, and boating around the cranberry isles and somes sound. Known for it's Monday night dances at the golf club which every resident from the age of 8 to 18 is eligable to attend. The last song before the older kid's arrive, always has been and will be Rock Lobster. The town is comprised of the american elite, many of whom spend their winters in pennsylvania, NEH is nicknamed Philadelphia on the Rocks for this very reason. All clothing for the summer is purchased at the holmes store for men and women and romantic room for women and If your lucky, charged to your grandparents charge account which has been active since before your parents were born. Although the season only runs from July 1st to labor day weekend the town is home to some of the oldest and most respectable familes, for whom Northeast Harbor is the definition of summer.
Houses in Northeast Harbor which are along Somes sound are reffered to as 'cottages' however each and everyone is a monument to high society, for these 'cottages' are some of the most lavish mansions, especially considering they are lived in for two months out of a year, and for some only one.
