As I recall, it was an all-day trip to get there from Burlington. The last two legs of the trip were on 'Scare' New England (as Air New England was known then) and Bar Harbor Airlines...with the final bit a drive up from Presque Isle. Back then, it was easy to drive across into Canada for a meal and back within an hour or so.
