We had 7 adult sized people with us (brought an air mattress for #7) and found the place quite spacious and well stocked for our every need. Everything was new and clean and inviting (even the harpoon hanging on the mantle which you'd think would scare an old whale like me). We didn't get a chance to meet Bud or Maria but we think there will be a next time if they'll have us so I'm sure there will be another opportunity. My folks live on a point in Quahog Bay on Great Island a few miles away so it was a perfect location for us, one I've passed by all my life. My daughters, the runners, found the point the perfect distance for their morning runs, and even the non-runners walked it once and found it quite pleasant: the water views and smells sure beat our usual suburban neighborhood walks. If you go, here are some of the places we hit off and on over the years from which it is a great jumping off point: Beaches: Reed State Park, Popham Beach State Park, Old Orchard Beach (OOB). Shopping: Maine St. Brunswick, Freeport, Lands Ends Gifts on Bailey Island. Lighthouses: Portland (Headlight, Buglight and Breakwater), Pemaquid (on the Maine quarter). Other great things to do: Maine Maritime Museum in Bath, Boothbay Harbor (shopping, restaurants, whale watching trips and the Maine State Aquarium). If you make a day of it at the beach or lighthouses don't forget to stop at Amatos in Brunswick, Portland or now in OOB for some Real Italian subs for your picnic, a "fix" we always get during our yearly week-long visits. And if you like mini golf there's one just about everywhere, including Pirate's Cove in OOB which as 2 intertwined 18 hole courses. If you're adventurous (or want to kill some time while others shop), check out the inexpensive excursions leaving daily from LL Bean (open 24-7) in Freeport. And you can't beat the varied selection of restaurants of all nationalities nearby. This time we hit a Hibachi place and a German restaurant in Brunswick, and Cooks Lobster House on Bailey Island overlooking the world's only cribstone bridge. That drive to the end of Rt 24 (and Lands End Gifts) traversing Great (Sebascodegan) Island, Orr's Island and Bailey Island offers all the quintessential Maine views you could ever want to put in your camera. At Lands End you'll also find a tribute statue to Maine Fisherman that has a twin in Washington DC.
