Our stay at Camp David was exactly what we had hoped for – peaceful and relaxing. We enjoyed spending time on the deck taking in the serenity of John’s Bay and watching the occasional lobster boat check its traps. The weather in mid-September couldn't have been any better. We really hated to go home.
There really is no need to leave the Pemaquid Peninsula, but Camp David was a great launching point when we felt like venturing out and exploring more of Maine. The kitchen at the cottage is great for preparing meals, however, when we were in the mood to eat out the Pemaquid Fisherman’s Co-op is only a few minutes away and had delicious, fresh seafood. There’s also the Muscongus Bay Lobster Company nearby and several restaurants in Damariscotta. (One word of caution, after Labor Day many of the lobster/clam “shacks” on the piers are only open Fri-Sun.) I’d be remiss if I didn't put a plug in for Round Top Ice Cream, always a favorite when we’re in the area.
Lastly, Mike was a great host. We had some nice conversations and he graciously provided complimentary lobsters for our dining pleasure. We look forward to visiting again!
