A small getaway

My husband and I usually go away for a week in the summertime to a home we rent in Boothbay Harbor. This year we didn't make that trip due to a busy summer schedule. So, we've decided to do a couple of smaller getaways in Maine and explore some places we haven't yet explored
In August we are making a trek back to Mt. Katahdin. It's the highest peak in Maine and one end of the Appalachian Trail.
Until that day, we are heading to a small town in Maine near the New Hampshire border called, Limerick. Although Maine is known for it's oceanside towns, this isn't one of them. This is inland and has some wonderful places to visit.
We will be staying at the Jeremiah Mason House B&B. It has a wonderful offering of rooms and breakfast sounds fantastic.
We will also be having tea at the Clipper Merchant Tea House. One of Yankee magazines top picks. The website shows a beautiful array of teas, sandwiches and rooms to eat them in.



There is also a turn of the century village known at Willowbrook Museum.

This is kind of like a smaller version of Sturbridge Village in Massachusetts. Offering a look at turn of the century life with actors portraying real people from that era. Can't wait to take lots of pictures to post and show you that Maine has more than a seaside resort state. See you all on Friday!!
