??? on Maine Towns

Jump to last reply

Okay, I've found a number of lovely cottages available in early September and am trying to narrow my choices.

I want to focus in and around the Camden area and explore the coves just north and south. I went to MDI two years ago so I'm looking for something a little away from there. I want to hike, explore, visit galleries and probably take at least one day sail. If it's warm enough I definitely want to swim. And of course, some nice restaurants within a convenient distance.

I have found places in Bayside/Northport, Lincolnville, Christmas Cove, and a lovely cottage a block from the harbor in Camden itself. All the prices are comparable

Any information on Bayside/Northport? There are two houses back to back on the common facing the water. The views are wonderful from both and the cottages look lovely but I don't know anything about the town. Same with Lincolnville - there's a lovely garden cottage with views of Penobscot Bay.

The place in Christmas Cove looks wonderful, also right on the water but they charge a cleaning fee of $125, which is a bit off putting, since no one else charges a fee. Am I stupid to let that influence my decision? (I know that's more of a Lounge question but put in the context of Maine, perhaps you experts can offer some insight.)

Also, I know distances can be deceiving on back roads, so does anyone know what the approximate driving time would be from Christmas Cove to Camden?
TIA
