$20.00 a night
Clean, well kept and secluded. Kayak rentals, boat excursions. The photo below is taken from the Nigh Duck during one of the boat trips around the island, it's a photo of the shoreline for the campground. The camp sites are behind the trees. They are only about 10 sites and the ones set back in the woods offer a nice amount of privacy. The house in the picture is a rental house. Click the picture for a larger view.
Old QuarryCampground - there are only 10 sites at this nicely secluded campground. That's our tent peeking out from behind the trees. We nearly got a hole in the tent when one of the resident squirrels, which we refer to as 'chip-squirrels' decide to taunt the dogs, who were inside the tent, by climbing up on the roof of the tent and peeking in the skywindow at them! We call them chip-squirrels because they are smaller than the grey, black or white squirrels that we've seen in the the lower East Coast and Canada. They look like a cross between a chipmunk and a squirrel.
To rent a house in Moody Beach would cost about $1800 for a week. The one my friends stayed at had 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a huge living room overlooking the beach, and fit a whole family comfortably.
Great view of the ocean!
----I lived Here...but.....
If you're planning a trip around fall for foliage around the Bar Harbor or Acadia National Park area, make sure you have reservations. On one drive up to Bar Harbor it totally slipped our minds that foliage was peaking up there and there were no rooms available anywhere. We had to drive two towns back to find a half decent motel...at 1am! I was too tired I didn't even remember what the room looked like. Doesn't matter which of the B and B's or hotels you're booked in...the best way to see everything is by walking and hiking.
Forget it; if you have to ask. . .
This is more of an all-inclusive resort with a swimming pool, tennis courts, lovely grounds, and cottages as well as the historic main inn. We're talking about an old-fashioned, turn-of-the-century (and I mean 19 to 20) grand hotel here.
Except for the concierge who didn't seem to know much about the area, this inn offered the finest service (no tipping) I have ever experienced. Everyone from the bellmen to the valet were extremely attentive and helpful.
The rooms in the inn could hardly be considered luxurious, but they are comfortable in an old-fashioned way. The inn offers a modest afternoon tea on a lovely deck overlooking a pleasant cove and beach. The dining room offers consistently excellent cuisine.
Staying at the Black Point Inn is like briefly turning back the clock to an era of elegance lived at an unhurried, civilized pace.
some people like to stay in hotels and motels, my friend gabe on the other hand likes to stay in hollow trees.
very quiet and no electricity, usually plenty of vacancy.
When I went back to Maine, I stayed at the Captain Briggs House Bed and Breakfast in Freeport. The bed and breakfast is in a restored sea captain's and shipbuilder's house which was built in 1853.
The rooms are comfortable, bright, and cheerful, and each has its own private bath. All rooms have either a king, queen, full, or twin bed. A homemade breakfast is served daily in the sunlit breakfast room.
The coast is dotted with lighthouses. In summer be sure to make reservations in advance, the hotels and B and B's fill up fast.
BEST PLACE FOR A WEEKEND GETAWAY. THE SAMOSET RESORT. ROCKPORT, MAINE
$185 per night, but well worth it!!! Winter mid-week specials are half this price and include dinner.
Golf, swimming, shopping, beautiful views of ocean.
You can use little pensions all around Maine, you can buy houses, if you have lot of money. If not, just rent one. I like the houses all arount this state. You can be directly in the nature.
We stayed in Freeport which is about 15 min drive to Boothbay. Both Freeport and Booth bay have a number of B&B hotels as well as Hotels to pick from . The time of year we went most were not open 'season' dosn't start until April 25 for most and some not until memorial day.But we did get a room at Coastline Inn
On the way to Bar Harbor, you can swing off the highway at Salisbury Cove> There are cabins there on a quiet beach that will allow you to sleep for a hundred years in the space of one night. If you are looking for serenity, Sue and I highly recommend Salisbury Coce. It is only five minutes from Acadia National Park and downtown Bar Harbor.
A cabin with a view across Salisbury Cove and Bar Harbor, a porch to sit on, a huge manicured lawn before you going down to a rocky beach, a kitchenette in the cabin and the sounds of the ocean and songbirds and crickets. No highway noise as it is a few hundred yards back to the highway.
The Manor House Inn, where I stayed,
The price depends on the room and the season.
There are a number of important qualities. The friendliness of its owner and staff, a sumptuous buffet breakfast that is served daily, and, its location close to the heart of the town.
