Jordan Pond House is located on the picturesque southern end of Jordan Pond. It has been a scenic, recreational, and dining destination on Mount Desert Island since the nineteenth century.

The house serves tea and popovers, as it has since the 1890s, in addition to other dining options. For most park visitors, afternoon tea on the lawn at Jordan Pond House remains a popular tradition. Many hiking trails, carriage roads, and the Park Loop Road provide access to the Jordan Pond House.

The original building burned down in 1979, and the current restaurant building was built in 1982. The original farmhouse on the property was completed in 1847 by George and John Jordan.
