The Loft is cozy and comfortable, with a beautiful view out the huge livingroom window. In any direction, kayaking on the river was quiet and lovely. The nature trail provided a lively walk and I enjoyed contemplating the river from a granite bench placed carefully on a promontory. Just a few minutes in the car and we were in Bath. The restaurants are excellent, and the farmer's market a real treat. The botanic gardens in Boothbay are not too far away and are breathtaking--even in late August!
