Planning our first trip to Maine with another couple to coincide with event in Searsport the first weekend. If we spend a week more and want to see as much as we can along the coast and Acadia, where do you suggest we stay? We are trying to be economical, but are not campers. Thought we'd rent a cottage together, but most would require a weekly rental. That would be ok if we can take day trips from somewhere and see a lot. I'm not sure how far apart places are and how long the drives would be. We're not sure if we'll drive or fly in and rent a car (where to do that?) We'd like to take in the beautiful scenery, browse the towns and shops, eat some great seafood, maybe go on a boating excursion, that sort of thing.
