Where to Stay
The Scenic Mid-Coast Maine
Belfast is a quiet coastal town overlooking Penobscot Bay. It has a charming downtown and residential streets with many lovely old homes which were once sea captain's mansions.
Eat at Young’s Lobster Pound (this is as real "Maine" as it gets), or have dinner at Darby’s, a quaint pub restaurant with a vintage atmosphere. Enjoy breakfast or lunch at Chase’s Daily, a fabulous vegetarian restaurant that even sells produce and bakery goods in the back. Visit the Belfast Co-Op, a natural food store that’s a throw back to the 70’s when Belfast was taken over by hippies (many are still around). They have a small restaurant-style counter that’s perfect for take-out or picnic lunches.

Camden is a charming quintessential New England town. It is located on Penobscot Bay, where windjammers and modern sailboats glide past each other in the lovely harbor. Behind the town are the rolling green hills of Camden State Park. The village sits prettily between the two and has many good restaurants, cute shops and great inns. Have a wonderful dinner at Francine’s Bistro (our personal favorite). Or go to Natalie’s at the Mill for a beautifully prepared meal. Enjoy dinner and the view at Atlantica Restaurant or at The Waterfront. Grab a quick bite at Cappy’s Chowder House or have a delicious sandwich at the Camden Deli.
