Bar Harbor, Boothbay, Kennebunkport, etc., we have vacationed Maine in years past and enjoyed immensely. This particular month long trek to Maine and Vermont (leaf peeping), we decided to go native... less hustle & bustle, rushing here/there... making sure we left no stone unturned... and couldn't have found a more perfect location/home in which to relax/enjoy Maine in a way we have never before!
The process of locating the perfect vacation location can prove to be most daunting to say the least, especially seeking/searching the Internet... the uncertainty, with almost every listing sounding too good to be true, but... would it be upon arrival? ... would it be worth the investment of time, energy, emotion, money? In THIS CASE/LOCATION/COTTAGE... a HUGE YES!!! Jackie Weaver (owner of this beautiful home) is professional, hands on during the transaction (available via phone/emails/snail mail), and available (as much or as little as you would like her to be once there!) We enjoyed meeting her upon arrival, and almost felt guilty not needing her for anything after the initial mert/greet! YES!!! it was that perfect an experience/vacation!
Location: Quaint lobster fishing village with friendly waving/catch showing fisherman right out the sliding glass doors on the bay.
Cottage: Immaculate, well appointed, comfortable home with spectacular views/privacy. Nothing for us to be concerned with but relaxation :)
Local entertainment/food in/nearby: rocking chairs, coffee cups in hand, loons, Eagle, herons, beaver damn, nature/Maine woods, parks, ponds, quilts, bells, light house, lobster traps, Lobster Co-op, used book stores, antique shops, lobster pounds, Schoodic area/Acadia National, etc... seek and you shall find :). Not to mention within minutes of all the hustle/bustle busyness of the vacations we have always experienced. Foliage was beautiful and changed from totally green to leaf peeping/Fall foliage during our stay!
The sunrises were picture perfect, sunsets the most colorful we have ever had the pleasure of witnessing, and a full moon with light shimmering across the bay. It rained only two days the entire trip, the weather unseasonably warm, and the time spent even afforded us with some cooler Main temps!
Food was great, natives were friendly, home felt like home!/wanted to extend our stay, but checked this site and it was already booked... otherwise Jackie would have needed to pull us out kicking!
