My husband and I just returned to Minnesota from this wonderful get away in Castine Me. The homes location worked out wonderful for us. We wanted to visit the parks and enjoy small hikes. Castine has a beautiful 5 mile hiking trail, with a small establishment on the water front to enjoy a meal at a picnic table on the dock, along with the beach being a few miles down the road. If you are looking for a vacation away from all the other tourist, this is it. The home has everything you need to make you feel as though it was your own personal cabin away from home. We cooked a few lobster meals and the kitchen was stocked to do so. The linens are wonderful along with the up to date kitchen. This home is very clean!! I am not use to homes being only one car length away from the main street, so this did catch me off guard, but the road noise was very limited after dark and did not keep me awake once. Only the skunks walking around the yard woke me up. :) The bedroom up the spiral stair case just made it more charming. If you like the outdoors, take the trip to Baxter State Park, it is worth it.
