Trip Report Maine trip report

Jump to last reply

We just returned from a wonderful trip to coastal New Hampshire and Camden Maine. We've made the trip up to the region a half dozen times, and this trip didn't disappoint. It was a 40th anniv. celebration, and included a stop on the the way up, to Seabrook, NH, where we had delicious lobsters. We were so happy with our meal, we went back the following day, and also on the way back south. We chose Markey's initially because that is where we got a parking spot, and felt, why question a good thing. I will say though, that there was just as big a crowd across the street at Brown's, and I suspect you would not go wrong with either place. The best part of the whole lobster experience for us at Markey's was that the lobster was cracked for us, making for a much easier process.

On our way up to Camden, we stopped at Five Islands lobster shack, and I give this place my vote for best views while tackling that lobster. There are many excellent lobster shacks in Maine, most with beautiful views, but in my opinion, this one has the best. I'd recommend a stop in Reid State Park while down there. I saw it first in the fall when it was much quieter, and loved it, but was glad to spend a little time there in summer.

In Camden, we stayed at our favorite B&B, Hartstone Inn. This was our 5th visit there, and we always return because of the wonderful service, beautiful rooms, and gourmet meals. I have yet to stay in the same room twice, and each time, I'm sure that THIS ONE is my favorite......... but there are so many charming, beautifully decorated rooms to choose from. I already have the next two rooms picked out! I should also add that there are many thoughtful amenities in each room, comfy beds and bedding, that the rooms and the staff always make you feel pampered. For the first time, we took a schooner cruise, and enjoyed seeing the area from a different, very relaxing, perspective. The B&B made up a lunch pail with lobster rolls, salad and dessert, allowing for us to do lunch while out on the boat. It was a perfect way to spend the afternoon.

On our way home, we stopped for one night at Wentworth By the Sea, and had a beautiful room overlooking the water. This is a historic bldg., and was a nice way to end our trip.
