Truly a getaway

This location is not for those easily bored. The climate can be fickle (fog follows brilliant sunshine within minutes) and although the surroundings are beautiful, it is not your typical beach vacation spot. The weather is cool in summer and the water is not for swimming. But you probably know that if you're looking to vacation in Maine. That said, the house is equipped with everything you could possibly need and staying in is no hardship. The decorations are on the excessive side, but do add to the quaint charm. There is only one real bedroom, not counting a tiny one in the basement, and housing the number of people they claim would be possible on various sofa beds, but be warned that there is no real privacy, because all the floors are interconnected with decorative floor vents, which makes sounds carry throughout the house. The shore is only accessible at low tide. The town is sleepy, but charming. And Quoddy State Park, nearby, is excellent for hiking.
