We stayed with Bill and Polly in July, 2016. There were 7 adults and 4 kids in our group, and the camp comfortably accommodated all of us. Our criteria in selecting a place for a 3-generation gathering was somewhere that had ample communal space as well as private spaces. The camp was perfect. All of the adults had bedrooms with doors. The kids opted to sleep in the loft above the living room, but when they are older, I expect they will happily sleep in the bunkhouse, away from bothersome parents. The porch was lovely -- plenty of room for everyone to stretch out with a book and enjoy the view. The kitchen had lots of room for food prep (many cooks in our group) and we enjoyed sitting around the table with the lovely views out onto the river. The kids enjoyed splashing in the pool , playing on the dock, and running along the trails. Water pressure in the showers was great and how nice to have a washer and dryer! And a dishwasher in the kitchen, too.
We could have spent more time in Damariscotta and surrounding towns, but it was so pleasant being at camp, relaxing, that it was hard to leave. That said, the Farnsworth Museum (and side trip to the Olson Farmhouse -- not to be missed, if you are an Andy Wyeth fan) , Pemaquid Lighthouse, and the Boothbay Railway Museum were fun diversions. My second grader, who'd recently completed a report on Henry Ford got to see an authentic Model T at the Railway museum, and we all enjoyed the train ride.
The Hannaford supermarket is awesome; great produce, prepared food, and a decent wine/beer selection. We chose to cook in most nights, but had delicious lobster at Muscungus, a fun family dinner at Newcastle Public House, and ice cream at Round Top.
Bill and Polly were gracious, helpful, friendly hosts. The kids loved petting Rosa and Olive, and Bill let them ride in the Kubota, which might have been the highlight of the trip. I look forward to a return visit.
