What Should We Do On Our Maine Coast Visit?

I get asked all the time what people should do on their visit to the Maine Coast, and the answer really is “whatever you want!”  Honestly, there is so much to do and so much coastline to see that visitors have to pick activities based on where their interests lie.  I mean, someone who is an avid outdoorsman (or woman) is going to have a very different “must do” list than an avid shopper.  And while I probably am one to choose… Read More

Does Your Bed and Breakfast Offer Gluten Free Meals?

One of the things we get asked regularly is whether someone following a gluten free diet can be accommodated at our bed and breakfast.  Absolutely!  I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease over 15 years ago, and my family has been eating and cooking gluten free meals since then.
