Sorry about the misunderstanding regarding the hot tub. We have a jacuzzi style bathtub and the only way to indicate this with the selections available of bathtub or hot tub was to check hot tub. We have removed hot tub from the checked items and checked bathtub instead.
It is true that the large supermarkets such as Shaw's, Hannaford and Walmart are off island and stopping in Ellsworth on your way to the island is a good idea if you want to have a larger selection at a cheaper price. The island does however have 2 supermarkets--a Hannaford's in Bar Harbor as well as an excellent health food store and a supermarket in Southwest Harbor about 4 miles from the house that has a good selection. There are also very good bakeries for bread and baked goods, fresh fish and lobster suppliers, farmers' markets and specialty grocery stores close to the house in Tremont and Southwest Harbor.
