So Many to Choose From!

Greg A. Hartford, photographer, author, publisherIf you have ever stayed at a quality bed and breakfast, you know that the best of them will make you feel as if you are family, a treasured part of the family. You get to be pampered and live for a while in the lap of luxury. Just thinking about it makes me want to kick back, close my eyes, and dream a while. I can still smell the freshly baked bread, or the breakfast hot and ready upon my getting ready. It is really nice to leave the cooking, and the washing and cleaning up, to someone else. My wife and I appreciate that. There are literally so many to choose from in the Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park area it may be difficult to make the selection. Have a conversation with them and see if something tells you that this is the right place. Or, try out a few. You are likely staying for at least a week, right?
