Relaxing stay in Maine
August 23, 2010
We have been going to Maine for 20 years. Staying in different spots.This is a charming, rustic cottage facing Blue Hill Bay. The bedrooms(4) are comfortable, the bathrooms (1-1/2)adequate-the shower is small. The charm is the porch and master bedroom view of the bay, the dawn sun streaming in your windows, the slight walk to the rocky coast that was yours alone.I shared coffee with my wife on the granite rocks every morning.My son beach combed for miles finding star fish, clams, mussels,razor mussels, perriwinkles and baby eels. The birding was fabulous. Brooklin is a charming village with a General Store and a divine gourmet shop called The Cave that has excellent food and wine to go.The Look Out Inn is a short stroll from the cottage with great (not cheap but nothing is cheap in Maine anymore) meals, a great view and cocktails.You have easy access to Blue Hill and then on to Ellsworth for the Big Chicken Barn-best book store in Maine. Surry for dinner at The Surry Inn. Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. This is a great location, private and quiet. No TV but cell service was great.No wifi Fireplace every evening and had bbq on the back porch. Nice kitchen supplies. Lobsterman up the road.All linens.Great artesian water. They clean up after you. Well worth the price.
