Maine is a magic state and so wonderful to visit during the October fall. We selected for you two special addresses along its incredible coast. The first is the "Harborage Inn on the Ocean Front", located in Boothbay Harbor. The second is "The Black Lantern Bed & Breakfast" in Topsham.
Let's start from the first: The "Harborage Inn" has a stunning view of the bay and it's practically almost on the water, or we could say on the tides effect, because here the sea level goes up and down along the day.
We had the beautiful and comfy room at the top floor which has one of the best views and you feel like you are at sea with a boat. This place is legendary for its breakfast, but unfortunately we couldn't taste it because we stayed the last day of the season. But we will be back next year in order to update you about this.
"Boothbay Harbor" is a magnificent location and it's the largest boating place north of Boston aslso home to many fishing boats as well as pleasure craft. So there is no surprise about the fact it's "The boating capitol of New England. The reason people are attracted by this area on Maine is because they can find five peninsulas stretched over 2000 miles of coastline in a 30-mile radius. This little town has been voted 2nd prettiest village in Maine.
You can hike along the coastal paths or comfortably drive by the peninsulas un to Land's End and taste the succulent Maine's Lobsters, paired with a local beer.
Moving towards to Freeport, famous for its LL Bean store, we found the second charming address to overnight" The "Black Lantern B&B" located right on the river and very close to the sea. Being October this hose was completely and nicely decorated for Halloween.
Certainly the "Black Lantern" has a lot of the Halloween atmosphere and the family management is really nice. They provide a very good breakfast and after that you are recharged to walk by the river or other beautiful surrounds like "Wolfe's Neck Woods State Parks". Alternatively you can go shopping to Freeport which has the most famous outlet in Maine.
