What time of year? Are you looking for lakeside, oceanside, mountains? Budget low, high or medium?

Depending where in Maine you're headed, you're looking at an 11-13 hour drive from Toronto just to get to Maine.... Are you counting that time as part of your "one week", or will you have a full week to spend after you get here? Could make a real difference in the kinds of things we suggest....

We like the Yachtsman Lodge in Kennebunkport. Two low rise buildings where you can park in front of your room. Great breakfast out on the patio. George Bush's boat is docked outside the rooms on the dock with others.

Hi Jeniz,

Tim from Harborfields On The Shore in West Boothbay Harbor here.

The Boothbay Harbor Windjammer Days festival is happening June 26 and 27 -- it's the 50th anniversary this year!

There are lots of moderately-priced waterfront accommodations available in the area, including hotels, inns, and cottages.

Yes, we have up to 2 weeks so certainly a 1 week stay in an area. A nice place on the water, little shops to walk about, etc.

As you have not given specific dates, I can't say for sure, but just punching in June 24-29, I found a couple of different options at the Yachtsman.
