For our first excursion into Maine, we discovered an absolutely marvelous inn that ended up being an experience never to be forgotten. Harbourside Inn in Northeast Harbor is a charming step into a time period not easily found in today's hustle and bustle. With beautifully appointed rooms in a very peaceful wooded setting and very gracious hosts who provide attention to every detail, the Inn is beyond expectation. Evidence of the care and love given to the Inn by the hosts can be seen in every little detail, even in the crispness of the beautiful Maine mornings while sitting on the sun porch amid homemade blueberry muffins, fresh fruit, coffee or tea, while having wonderful conversations with the other house guests who wonder down from their rooms. Though back home in Colorado, Harbourside lives on in our memories as the best ever!
