Lubec to Portland

We will be spending the night in Lubec before traveling to Portland for a flight home. How long will it take to travel that distance and where is a good place to spend the night in order to arrive in Portland by 9:00 am? Thanks for your help.

It should take about four and a half hours to travel from Lubec to Portland, by way of Bangor. You could stay in Portland itself. Or you could stay just north of Portland in Freeport, home of L.L.Bean's flagship store.

Given that you need to be in Portland by 9:00.... and that Portland can still have a fair amount of commuter traffic that time of day, I'd be strongly tempted to take my time coming south from Lubec, but plan on staying somewhere in Portland or South Portland for the quickest access to the airport the next morning. We've had good luck over the years at the Hampton Inn on Philbrook Ave in South Portland or the Holiday Inn Express on Sable Oakes Drive... both offer easy access from I-95 and are close enough to the airport for easy access there. You could consider returning your rental car the end of the day when you drive down from Lubec and let the hotel shuttle get you to the airport the following day (would check with both hotels to confirm they still have a shuttle -- both did the last we knew). Of course, threre are numerous other places to stay in Portland or South Portland as well, but I would strongly consider staying somewhere "in town" rather than plan on driving in from somewhere else in the morning.
