Your search for a Maine vacation can stop here! We spent days searching for the right place for our family trip to Maine. We wanted a little of everything and we got it all! The Ditano’s are superb hosts, leaving no detail undone. The Depot, everything a Maine cabin should be, set back in the quiet woods, beautiful rustic décor, clean-as-a-whistle, filled with all the comforts of home- books, warm blankets, games, washer/dryer- yet away from it all. You will love waking up here, breathing in the crisp air after a long, peaceful night's rest. Enjoy your morning coffee on the large wrap-around deck as birds sing, frogs croak and the beaver builds (can you spot him?) The caboose was our kid’s favorite, clean and cozy, reminiscent of days gone by, and a comfy kitchen for cleaning and cooking the day's catch! Plenty of room for a large family!
There is so much going on here, yet you cannot help but be spellbound by the gentle peacefulness that abounds. The pond is your own private oasis, let the kids uncover it's mysteries (and yes, there are some big fish in there!) Take a long hike through the woods, your cares will fall by the wayside, remember to breathe deep- the air here smells great! When (and if) you want to leave to sight-see, drive 15 minutes into Belfast, experience an authentic sea-faring, non-commercialized town along the Penobscot Bay. Acadia National Park with its breathtaking scenery, and abundant outdoor activities is spectacular. We spent two days exploring the park and Bar Harbor both on our bikes and by car. The tidal pools in Wonderland were our favorite. Lake George is an excellent day trip for kayaking!
Of course, there’s plenty to do if you stayed home all day too. Nap in the hammock, fish, hike, bike, or swim. Enjoy a juicy blueberry pie (Thanks Becky!) and the best farm fresh eggs around. The kids can experience life on the farm…building a goose pen, watching baby chicks hatch, feeding the chickens. Oh, and the karate lessons! What a blast for the kids. Did I mention the stars and campfire? Round everyone up for a good ‘ol fashion campfire, some hotdogs, marshmallows and some amazing star gazing. It was so very hard to leave this happy place where time slows down and the things that really matter come into focus. So, stop searching, start packing-Tell Jim, Cheryl and the girls we said “Hi, miss them, and hope to get back real soon."
Thanks so much for all the fun, friendship, great conversation and of course, the memories.
