still tweaking the itinerary

Flights are booked Depart on June 26 arriving in PWM at an ungodly early hour. Departing late in the day on the 12th. Now have to figure out where to best base our stay.

current thinking;

26-28 in Portland

29-2 in Camden

2-6 in Bar Harbour

6-10 in Moosehead

10-12 ???

That means trying to find a room in Bar Harbour the week of July 4th. and moving to Moosehead on the 6th.

Your advise was to minimize our number of stops. We're stymied. What are we missing?

1. Re: still tweaking the itinerary

Just had a thought for another "something different" for you to consider -- leaving Moosehead, head for Central Maine -- it's sort of on your way back to Portland...offers some different features and "feel" and won't require a lot of extra driving. Suggest you take a look at a B&B in the river town of Hallowell called Maple Hill Farm B&B.... From there,, you can easily visit places like Historic Fort Western in Augusta (Google it for some idea of what's there), our outstanding Maine State Museum (a great rainy day destination and fun even on a sunny day), see the Maine State House, stroll the brick sidewalks of downtown Hallowell (once the antiques capital of New England with plenty of interesting shops and a couple of great restaurants even today), stroll the Kennebec River Rail Trail along the banks of the Kennebec and key an eye open for bald eagles, osprey, etc., maybe a performance at the Theater at Monmouth (in-residence repertory company that offers a variety of plays - you can Google them for their season's listings), and see another part of Maine. And when you're ready to head back to Portland, it's only an easy hour's ride down the road....
