Bar Harbor is a must. If you get down more southern I highly suggest Portland, and even going into the New Husband seacoast area – Portsmouth. It will be beautiful that time of year!

If you make it that far South The Wentworth by the Sea Hotel in New Castle, New Husband would be a beatiful place for a honeymoon stay!

I have all kinds of suggestions! I grew up in New Husband and lived in Maine for the past few years (met Fiance there too!). We are honeymooning in northern New Husband in March…a little different season but still, I’m excited that there is someone else who considers New England a honeymoon spot!

 

Acadia National Park is GORGEOUS. I’m an avid hiker and camper and have been there lots of times. My favorite trip was when we rented a cabin (fireplace, kitchen, and all) and spent the weekend kayaking and hiking Mt. Katahdin, with a bonfire and s’mores every night. If you’re into outdoorsy activities like mountain climbing, totally take a day and climb up Katahdin (start early!), then take the Knife’s Edge pass down the other side. It’s incredible.

If you’re more into the ‘cozy New England town’ vibe, Rockland/Camden/Rockport is a beautiful area (and FI’s hometown!) with lots of little bed and breakfasts that are SO romantic. We had our engagement photos done in Camden and stayed at the Blue Harbor House…the owners are awesome and the coconut blueberry pancakes were TO. DIE. FOR. The rooms are fairly small at the BHH but the beds are big and comfy 😉 There are tons of beautiful harbors and the views from the cliffs are pretty amazing – plus the lobster is the best you’ll find anywhere. Definitely visit the lighthouses nearby, too 🙂 Also, I think September is high tourist season so the prices for some of the more famous B&Bs will probably be sort of high for some budgets.

Bar Harbor is more of the same type of vibe as Camden, but it’s out on an island and has more touristy type things, so if you’re thinking you might want lots of activities like seeing old houses or museums, or maybe spending some time finding a good position over the rocks at the sealine to see the sunrise (or sunset!) then it’s the perfect place.

Helpful? Feel free to PM me with any more questions!

Portland is super fun for nights out drinking and dancing, and the hotels are inexpensive. I spent many nights down there partying my butt off. I’d recommend Ri Ra’s Irish Pub for dinner, then Three Dollar Deweys for drinks, then out to any of the bajillions of pubs tht play live music (I like Bull Feeneys) for dancing and more drinking. Novare Res has ‘fancy’ beer if you like that sort of thing, too, but it gets CROWDED really fast. Also, for other pub nights, Gritty McDuff’s is good, as is The Great Lost Bear and Sebago Brewing Company. I really like beer…and so does Maine.
