... the Farnsworth Museum -

The only place my wife and I have ever been kicked out of. We showed up early a few summers ago and were quite interested, but the cashier at the front entrance had not yet opened and we would have to go to the rear entrance to pay admission. So as we were in the process of making our way to that part of the building we stopped to admire a painting. Can't tell you whose it was exactly as the guy we had spoken to at the front entrance came along and just hauled us outta there like we were a couple of lollygaggers.

Looked like a really great museum though (from what we saw of it) Don't go early would be my advise.

As far as crowds are concerned, I would have to say Belfast is the least crowded. It is charming, has a great feel to it, and there's a FANTASTIC brewery called Marshall Wharf (part of 3 tides restaraunt) right on the water. I'm telling you the beer is out of this world and surpasses that of all microbreweries I've tried in the entire country (which is quite a bit.) That said, the whole midcoast area is fabulous so wherever you end up staying, make sure to make some day trips to each town. They all have something different to offer.

Hey there, NS4Life - I'm guessing that you'll be pleased with the location of the Waterman Beach rental. There's a BB close to W.Beach Lobster - Lupine Cottage - and a small rental cottage adjacent to Lupine Cottage. If you're renting the little cottage....

Here's the website for the Blues Festival: North Atlantic Blues Festival – Rockland, Maine

Check out Vinalhaven if you're in Rockland, or you can take the ferry to North Haven also. It's a fun day out and back and there are lots of fun things to see and do in both towns.

Enjoyed reading all the posts. I had a similar post a while back about the best place to spend a few mos in the summer for a early 40's guy vacationing from California. It seems like the consensus is Rockland to Belfast stretch is the best place for summer living for a combination of beautiful scenery, limited crowds, and some good bars, restaurants and breweries. Blues fest sounds like a lot of fun too.
