Favorite Maine Street

It doesn’t have to be a Main street or even a paved road – what’s your favorite Maine Lane?


There are so many grand houses in Camden.  Some with sweeping views of a breath taking harbor.  But I have to say Jacobs Ave lined with cottage style bungalows steals my heart every time?  What row of Maine houses speaks to you?

The Carriage House Inn


Old houses tell stories, and this stunning second empire Victorian mansion has a wealth to share. Built in 1874 by Captain John McGilvery, a member of one of Searsport's most prominent seafaring, shipbuilding families, its rich history is complete with an intriguing cast of characters. The Inn was a garrison for army officers in the early 1940's and later the retreat of impressionist painter Waldo Peirce. A well known Maine artist of international repute, Peirce was one of the most colorful personalities in American art. Lifelong friends and portrait artist of Ernest Hemingway, who allegedly paid visits to Waldo at the Inn, Peirce found inspiration and refuge for 20 years along the breathtaking shores of Penobscot Bay.

Now the home of another sea captain's great-granddaughter with Scottish roots, this elegant bed and breakfast is decorated with family heirlooms and period antiques capturing the essence of years gone by. The Carriage House Inn overlooks the shores of Penobscot Bay, and sits within walking distance for the center of the quaint village of Searsport on coastal Route 1. The Inn is surrounded by 2 acres of gracious, park-like grounds with ocean views. To the delight of our guests, our property has been visited by moose, deer, and an occasional fox.

Yellow Trail Camp Med-O-Lark

If you drop your child off at

Camp Med-o-lark

And stay a while for vacation -

May we suggest the Yellow Trail:

Take a right on 220 and follow 220 until you take a left onto 17. Follow 17 several miles through the town of Union (a great, quaint Maine Village to stop in), South Hope, West Rockport until you run into Route 1 in Rockland. Take a left onto Route 1 and follow to Main Street in Rockland. Take a right onto Main Street and follow 73 to a left onto route 131 down the stunning St. George Peninsula.

Make reservations at East Wind Inn nestled the small quaint village of Tenants Harbor. These are historic, waterfront accommodations on an artsy authentically “Maine” peninsula that allows you to experience the culture in true form.


Feast on the freshest ingredients from their salad dressing to the fish harvested off the nearby shores in the East Wind’s dining room.

Drive to the end of this piece of Maine and park on a water’s edge in the charming village of Port Clyde. You won’t find anything like it anywhere else on Earth. It’s tiny but packed with true Maine treasures. And boat access to the magical island of Monhegan. A day trip or many days trip you wouldn’t want to miss.

Just a short drive or a long walk from the Port Clyde village is the Marshall Point Lighthouse. A great adventure and views for the whole family. Pack a picnic from one of the general stores you spotted while making your way down the St. George Penisula or work up an appetite exploring the coast line and head back to Rockland for a diner’s delight and additional beautiful historic Inns.

Or why not head back up to Route 1 and then head south on a village tour of the southern mid-coast?

Friendship, Waldoboro, Damariscotta are all small Maine town with big coastal charm.

Watch a local fisherman reel in his daily catch.

Enjoy the history and heritage of many of the working harbors along your way.

Enjoy the real live canvas of art in the stunning views from seaside homes to rocky shores.

Drive down the peninsula from Damariscotta to the gorgeous and world-famous Pemaquid area. Stay at the rustic but cozy Ye Olde Forte Cabins and you are only a stone throw from soothing Atlantic waves crashing on the rugged ledges of the Maine coast.

There are so many hidden and obvious Maine gems around from artists studios, to local swimming holes, to tucked away sandy beaches, to forts dripping with history, to the stunning Pemaquid Lighthouse. You may never want to leave.

Ron Weaver’s work (a local New Harbor artist).

Or head back up to Route 1 and south towards the next breath taking, Maine village. Boothbay Harbor might quite possible be on every person’s bucket list. Or at least it should be. This magical walking village is riddled with shops, studios, sailing, boat tours – literally heaven on earth for those who want a slice of Maineness in one town.

And you’ll want to stay close to all the action at the Harbour Towne Inn.

Enjoy the Yellow Trail. We know you will.
