Our first trip to Maine and as a bonus, Autumn. Due to airline issues we arrived the first night well after dark so it was not possible to view the harbor or the area. As the sun came up our first morning we were blessed with an artist’s palette. The tide filled the harbor; the colors of the trees brightened the landscape; the beauty that was to be ours for a week role out before our eyes. Stockton Springs was a great location for our adventures, since we wished to explore both North and South. Acadia to Owl’s Head was our wonderland. Oceans, harbors, colors, lighthouses, sailboats, bridges, forts, food, towns, shopping, trains; so much to do so little time! The cottage was everything we expected; well equipped, private, comfortable, warm and inviting. Our only regret is that we spent so much time enjoying the area the time at the cottage was limited to sleeping and breakfast. The memories of the cottage, the area and the fun of an extended family coming together in a warn environment will last a lifetime.
