Gourmet markets, wine stores, and bakery all within 1/4 mile walk or drive. Heath food market less than 1/2 mile away. Less than three miles from attractions of Camden, but going 'home' to the peacefulness of Beech Hill Road. One and a half mile to summit of Beech Hill with its hilltop 'tea house' and 360 degree views of Penobscot Bay and Camden hills. Two golf courses within 4 miles. Kayaking, hiking and biking paradise!
Rockport Village ... a pretty walk away: Rockport is the home of Bay Chamber Concerts, always fabulous with international performers enhanced by the acoustic perfection enjoyed in the recently restored, lovely Rockport Opera House.
The invigorating walk around Beauchamp Point with a stop at the botanical treasure that is Vesper Hill Childrens Chapel, a hilltop open air chapel looking out over the bay to Blue Hill and beyond may become your daily indulgence. 'Shepards Pie' overlooks the harbor serving the best in locally grown, exquisitely crafted temptations for diners of all ages, plus a friendly, relaxing bar. New to downtown is 'Salt Water Farm', a farm to table delight, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner.
If you want to eat in, pick up lobsters cooked to perfection at Graffam Brothers, right up the street from the library, next, stop, at 'Rayr' for the perfect wine and than swing into the 'Market Basket' for crusty bread, cheeses and sensational sweets!
Ahh ... a Maine vacation!
