Charming side trip within 2 hour drive of Cape Elizabeth

Jump to last reply

We are spending a week in Maine in midJuly with good friends who live just outside of Portland. We would like to take a sidetrip (2 days and 1 night away) someplace rural and charming, with hiking close by within a 2 hour drive of Cape Elizabeth, probably but not necessarily near the ocean, hopefully giving us more of a sense of the beauty and character of the state.

We have tentative reservations for 2 nights near Acadia National Park, but are not sure we want to do that much driving (we will be flying from San Francisco, so already have relatively long journey for short vacation) and have heard that Acadia can be painfully crowded in the summer. We ourselves never go to Yosemite Valley between Memorial Day and Labor Day, stay 3 nights when we do go, but would recommend a two night stay in the summer in a minute to someone who would otherwise not have a chance to see it. Of course, we know the park really well and exactly how to avoid crowds. So I guess our other question is "Is Acadia a DON'T MISS?

Thanks for all ideas and thoughts.
