Great, relaxed atmosphere, wide selection of beers on tap. And, great food. It's not over the top expensive and is always busy. Live music on a frequent although not nightly basis.

The Visitor Center is about an hour drive from the cottage. It is a great place to visit....drive the LOOP Road to see the rocky shore and waves coming in from the open ocean. Touristy Bar Harbor is a little further, but there are plenty of things to see and good restaurants. Take a Whale Watch excursion or have popovers on the lawn at Jordan Pond House in the Park.

You want to go around low tide because you can't get there if it is high tide. The sandy bar between the mainland and the island it so magnificent. There is a trail that will take about 30 min. to 45 min. for you to get from the parking area to the bar so allow for that. It is worth the hike in and out.

Crazy type of old movie theater with three or four rows of old couches in the front and rows of seats with shallow counter/tables in front. This is for the food that you can buy at the concession stand as you enter. This is a local hangout that is open year round with recent movies showing.

Fabulous was to get an unguided ocean based tour of Stonington and the Islands to Isle au Haut. This is how the island residents get to the island so expect just about anything on the boat. Check schedules. About half of Isle au Haut is owned and managed by Acadia National Park. There are no cars on the island but you can take a bike. There are roads both tarred and gravel.

Food Scene
This is in an old Apothecary shop with old wood charm and coziness. The menu is up-scale and wonderful. It is a special event place to go in downtown Ellsworth about 35 min. drive from Brooksville, Maine.
Fine Dining....cozy, colonial feel interior. The food is really good. This is a dress up, fancy place to go. It would be in the memorable category.

The market is a local hangout place...well, there are a few tables indoors and one or two on the porch. It is a good place to get breakfast, coffee, and baked goods. The market has enough of a selection of items to get your through a delightful day in Maine. Next door is Buck's Restaurant...fine dining. Drinks & Nightlife

It's more than a coffee shop as it serves breakfast and lunch. It serves dinners on weekends but as I write this (in January) you might want to check times to make sure. It's right down town in Blue Hill. There is a door on the side in the back with a handicap parking space there for those who do not want to climb the stairs on the front. During the winter, entry is on the side too. It's in a renovated old building, very comfortable inside with nice seating. The food is great!

It's one of the best places around to get lobster and seafood. The food is what you would expect and want if you came to this coastal area in the summer. It is open seasonally and not open in the winter. The food is very good although there is often a wait. Normally, they do not take advanced reservations but there are lawn chairs on the lawn that overlooks Union River and the waitstaff will take orders for drinks while you wait. Arrive early before there is a wait. There is a lot of seating so if you plan for this you will likely be seated right away. It is a little tucked out of the way on a side street.

It is in a lovely location in what was once a Blacksmith's Forge build by the side of a stream that once powered the forge. It opened in the summer of 2018 by a couple that have been working together for at least a year. The chef is well seasoned and has worked in the area for several years. It has upstairs and downstairs seating as well as bar seating. The menu is short with items to please. It is a friendly place more for adults than families, but families and children are welcome. I like this place.
