What are some other charming accommodations in Maine?

There’s nothing better than planning a vacation (or a staycation!) in Maine. There are tons of different areas offering views for any taste. Those who love the mountains and woods can head inland to find refuge by a lake. And those who enjoy the state’s coastal views have plenty to choose from. If you’re in the coast lover’s group, we’ve got a great option to make your stay extra-lovely and unique. Just head to Machiasport tucked away in Washington County, where you’ll find the most unique rental cottage in Maine… complete with its own lobster boat lounge!! Prefer the classic B&B experience? Wrap yourself in luxury, for example, when you check into Bar Harbor, Saltair Waterfront Inn Bed and Breakfast, a waterfront property that promises a luxurious escape and some of the most beautiful views in town.

What are the best small towns to visit in Maine?

Every state has small towns, but the ones in Maine just feel better. In addition to being absolutely beautiful and irresistibly charming, the community vibe in Maine’s towns is strong — and seeing independent businesses thrive reminds us just how important it is to visit these places. The next time you have time to explore, head to these downtown areas to support the local community — and have a great time while you’re there! Some notable little locales on the list include: Ogunquit and South Berwick, both of which are in York County, Norway (over in Oxford County), Houlton in Aroostook County, and, of course, Bath and Kennebunkport, a place we absolutely adore.

What’s winter like in Maine?

If the idea of being in a real-life snow globe (or Hallmark movie) sounds appealing to you, then you will positively love winter in Maine. Every year, the coast receives anywhere from 50-70 inches, and inland receives roughly 60-110 inches of snowfall — and of course, this white stuff is accompanied by chilly temperatures, wind, and ice. Even though it may be a hassle to shovel, there are so many wonderful things about winter weather in Maine, and the endless winter activities are just one of the perks to living in this great state. While some parts of Maine see more snow than others, the city of Caribou sees more than most, which is why it may be the town that gets the most snow in Maine. Wondering what winter is like in the snowiest town in Maine? Let’s take a look!
