We recently returned from one of the best family vacations EVER! Not only did we love the fabulous and beautiful Robbins Nest and its idyllic riverfront location - but we loved everything about Belfast and the surrounding areas! Such an ideal location - right in the middle of the charming mid-coast fishing villages. We spent our two weeks soaking up the local culture and loved it all: fabulous restaurants ('lobstah' galore!), wonderful galleries and shops (the craftsmanship in these parts is stunning!), invigorating schooner sails, trips to Acadia Nat'l Park and Bar Harbor and more! But honestly, we always looked forward to returning to "our home" away from home! We kayaked on 'the Passy', grilled out on the super gas grill, made S'mores for the kids down at the firepit while taking in the wonders of the night sky, played games and generally just enjoyed hanging out together in this wonderfully welcoming and well-equipped "home". During our two week rental period, we had 3 different family/friends groups visit us for a few days each - and it was the ideal way to entertain folks we don't get to see often - EVERYONE wants to do it again! So we will definitely be back! I think we may have started a new tradition!
