Moose Facts and Photos

I couldn't resist adding this to my Midcoast Maine blog! My husband is fascinated with moose, yet he seems to be the permanent winner of "the least likely to see a moose in Maine" award. He still doesn't believe me that I saw an amazing one two summers ago while driving on a friend's property in Robinhood Cove. Fortunately this friend's dad called him and asked if he'd seen it - independent confirmation for me! I'm going to make sure my husband reads the first article from this link before he heads back to open up our cottage in Georgetown: Interesting Facts About Moose, Plus Photos

Robinhood Free Meeting House Freezes!

Imagine my surprise this morning when my Google Alerts showed up in my inbox with something about Robinhood Free Meetinghouse restaurant in Georgetown Maine. For anyone who has never been to midcoast Maine, never mind Georgetown ME, this little restaurant in a historic meeting house, on a little island (connected by bridges), is a bit obscure - but highly praised by food critics and guests alike. Apparently, they have started selling a "famous" item - frozen. Check it out at . Want to taste these pastries in person and experience traditional Maine?

Southern Maine Summer Vacation Rentals: Cottages, Homes, and Condos

Southern Maine Summer Vacation Rentals: Cottages, Homes, and Condos

Looking for information on southern or midcoast Maine Vacation Rentals? Check out the link above from About Portland guide Deborah Fowles. There are some good basic tips in this article on what to ask rental owners, as well as some solid links to rental agencies for Southern Maine, and online vacation rental listing services. Personally, I wouldn't include 10k in this list as they are really not a leader in vacation rental listings. I would however definitely add Visit Maine, Great Family Rentals, and Vacation Rentals to her list.

I'd also add that the "high season" is about 8 weeks in Maine. If you want to rent a cottage in July or August on the water (beach, rocky shore, or lake) book NOW. The best places often fill up 6 months to 1 year in advance. If your first choice is booked, ask for referrals; most owners are willing to help.
