Merryspring Kitchen Tour – Camden, Maine Event

If you have stayed with us at the Inn at Sunrise Point in the past you will be very familiar with Chef Brad, the master of delicious breakfasts, baked goods, picnics, snacks, and more that we offer here at the inn. Chef Brad is not only a favorite among our guests but he is also a very popular Chef in the community. A clear example of this is that our very own Chef Brad has been asked once again to participate in the annual Merryspring Kitchen Tour that will take place on August 5th in Camden and Rockport, Maine.

Merryspring Nature Center

Every summer the Merryspring Nature Center located in Camden, Maine organizes a wonderful Kitchen Tour where you can visit beautiful homes, see uniquely designed kitchens, and enjoy delicious food prepared by the best chefs in Midcoast Maine. This is not only a very enjoyable event but it is also prestigious as Merryspring goes though a selection process to invite the best chefs to participate. This will be Chef Brad’s third year in the Merryspring Kitchen Tour – quite an honor. Needless t say we are proud of our master chef!

Kitchen Tour in Maine

The Merryspring Kitchen Tour will be taking place on Wednesday, August 5th. I highly recommend attending this event if you are in town and make sure to stop by Chef Brad’s kitchen! Brad will be cooking at the home of Diane and Keith Blizzard located at 118 Chestnut Street in Camden and will be making and serving delicious treats from 12:30-3:00pm

Rainy Day Activities in Midcoast Maine

Rain Day? Not to worry! There are many indoor activities to enjoy right here at the Inn at Sunrise Point in Lincolnville, Maine and in the surrounding area.

museums in Maine

One of our favorite places to visit, rain or shine, is the Farnsworth Art Museum. The Farnsworth, located in Rockland, Maine approximately 12 miles from the Inn at Sunrise Point and is a jewel of an art museum celebrating the role Maine has played in the creation and development of American Art. The Farnsworth Art Museum opened in 1948 and has been drawing people from across Maine and beyond ever since. Its primary attraction—and what we love most about the museum is it’s Wyeth Center which features one of the largest and most impressive collections of work by the Wyeth family members: Andrew, N.C., and Jamie Wyeth, all who are famous artists across the globe. Speaking of the Wyeth family, some of you know that we have an accommodation named the Wyeth Loft (link with http://www.sunrisepoint.com/wyeth-loft.html) here at the inn. Yes, this luxury suit was named after this extremely talented family. In fact, all of our accommodations are named after famous artists who were from, or inspired by, Maine’s beauty.

Lincolnville, Maine lodging

Another popular destination is the Owls Head Transportation Museum located in Owls Head, Maine about 15 miles from the inn. The Owls Head Transportation Museum is a nonprofit educational organization that has an amazing and very interesting collection of aircraft, ground vehicles, engines, etc. If you are interested in history, methods of transportation, or simply enjoy looking at beautiful old cars and aircrafts the Owls Head Transportation Museum is defiantly worth a visit.

While we would recommend checking out these two museums in particular, many of our guests prefer to relax and enjoy what we have to offer here at our coastal retreat on a rainy day. We have a charming library at the Inn filled with a great selection of books, movies, cd’s, and board games for your enjoyment. . Why not sit in front of the cozy fireplace with a delicious glass of wine from our bar and turn a rain day into another day in paradise?

Exploring the Vast Maine Coastline :: Camden Getaway

Did you know that Maine has a longer coastline than California?

Although it may be hard to believe, it is true.  The general coastline of Maine only measures to be 228 miles, but the tide coastline (which includes all of the inlets and bays in Maine) measures to be 3,478 miles. There are only three other states that have a longer coastline than Maine: Alaska with 33,904 miles of coastline, Florida with 8, 436 miles of coastline and Louisiana with 7,721 miles of coastline.

Maine Coastline

The Beautiful Maine Coastline

Maine’s stunningly beautiful coastline also encompasses 3,166 islands. Many of these islands are extremely small and uninhabited but some are so large and a few are so famous that you don’t think of them as islands.  The best known island in Maine may be Mount Desert Island, home to Acadia National Park, which attracts thousands of visitors and is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year.  Acadia is one of our guests favorites locations to go for a day trip. Mount Desert Island isn’t the only island within your reach if you stay with us here at the Inn at Sunrise Point, if you visit the top of Mount Battie in Camden Hills State Park only a couple miles from the inn or if you gaze upon the ocean from our own private ocean facing lawn you can see there are several islands right off the cost of the inn-all within reach of your camera lens and some easily accessible by car or ferry.

Romantic Maine Getaway

The ocean facing lawn at the Inn at Sunrise Point

The Inn at Sunrise Point, a luxury coastal retreat located in the beautiful state of Maine is the perfect place to stay not only if you are looking for a highly relaxing and enjoyable stay but also if you are interested in exploring the vast Maine coastline and islands. Staying at our Midcoast Maine Bed and Breakfast gives you easy access, via State of Maine operated ferry boats, to islands such as Islesboro, North Haven and Vinalhaven.  Each island features a charming island village as well some of Maine’s most beautiful landscapes.

Fishing village in Maine

Small Fishing Village on Vinalhaven

Islesboro — the closest island to the Inn– is located three miles off the coast of Lincolnville Beach. The ferries run hourly during daylight hours from Lincolnville Beach, which is less than 2 miles north of the Inn at Sunrise Point. During the 19th century the island was home to the largest commercial shipping fleet in the bay. However, following the Civil War the island became more of a resort community with many summer homes. Actors such as John Travolta and Kirstie Alley are among those who live part time on the island. Our guests love to visit Grindle Point Lighthouse, Warren Island State Park, as well as to see the open meadows and tall spruce trees on this island.

North Haven and Vinalhaven are both accessible via ferry from Rockland, which is about 12 miles south of the Inn at Sunrise Point. North Haven has beautiful pebble beaches, wildflower meadows and spectacular views of Penobscot Bay. Vinalhaven is another charming island that prides itself on its natural beauty as well as its friendly and close-knit community. Lobster fishing is a big part of the Vinalhaven economy so if you are looking to meet some fisherman and see some lobster traps this is one of the best locations to do so. Walking and biking around these two islands is a pleasure.

There are many more islands to explore in Penobscot Bay.  If you have time we would highly recommend visiting some of them. We would be happy to make you one of our delicious gourmet picnic baskets to take while you enjoy a relaxing boat ride and an island adventure.
