You are free to enjoy the large great room overlooking the Atlantic ocean, relax in the hammock or take the winding path down to the shoreline. You will wake up to a gourmet breakfast and we will be glad to help you with nearby hiking trails, scenic Maine coastal “down east” spots, local artisans, a kayak tour or day trip adventures such as whale watching. Then again, you might just want to spend several hours relaxing at our bed and breakfast with a good book. There is no rush here, after all, you are in Maine.
