COUNTY RD 77 CONSTRUCTION
Cass County Road 77 will be under construction during the summer of 2018.  They will be repaving and adding a walking trail from Sandy Point Road (right in front of Birch Bay) to Bar Harbor.  It is best to avoid this section of 77.  

From South:  We recommend getting on 77 in Baxter.  It is 77/Pine Beach Road (Take a left at Dondlinger Chevrolet.)   You will follow 77 to Sandy Point Road.  Take a Left on Sandy Point Road.  The resort entrance will be straight ahead.   

From North:  There are a couple different options depending on your location.  The recommended Alternate route is 78 to 107 (See Map)  but for some  Cty Rd 1 is an option too.  Please see map to help plan an alternate route.
