I've made vacationing at the Mid Coast a tradition for a number of years. However, I have to say that my experience, while staying at the studio has been the best. It is a very clean and safe place to vacation, while you leave your worries and concerns at home. You'll find everything you need a the studio; all you have to do is bring your suitcase. It was wonderful to wake up every morning with such a beautiful view of the harbor, just outside your door. I had breakfast every morning on the deck and felt the ocean breezes, while I enjoyed overlooking the flower gardens. There are so many things to do there. You could be an adventurer and go kayaking or hiking, or maybe just want to hang out and enjoy the beauty nature has to offer. It's truly a vacation spot for anyone. Also, the hostess was very cordial and accommodating. She saw to it that I had everything I needed. The studio is located in a neighborhood of nice homes and is a good and safe place to walk where you want to go--away from all the traffic and tourist noise. However, it's also close driving to the nearby villages as well. The area provides something for everyone: art galleries, restaurants, parks, hiking, kayaking, swimming, fishing, the library...again, something for everyone. I plan on being a regular guest every summer.
