Book a relaxing 3-day getaway to our romantic Maine bed and breakfast and experience all of the local draws unspoiled by the buzz of the summertime rush. To help you make the most of your mid-coast Maine spring getaway, we put together a full itinerary.
Your Relaxing Spring Itinerary in Maine:
Enroute: On your trip North stop by the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens. It’s a 15-minute detour off Coastal Route 1 North at the Boothbay Road (ME-27) exit. Walk around the extensive gardens for both pleasurable exercise and exquisite sights and scents. On your way to the gardens, stop at Edgecomb Potters on Boothbay Road as well. Their unique pottery has been made in Maine for over 40 years, and the showroom is a browser’s delight.
Check in: After your adventures enroute to the Inn, check-in at the Inn at Sunrise Point for the evening and get ready for a cozy night by the fireplace.
Dinner: Keep it light and order in! Our Cheese and Cracker Plates and Dessert plates pair perfectly with our fresh fruit bowl and a special selection from our wine list!
Drinks by The Fire: Cap off your night and curl up by your personal in-room fireplace. Ask us to bring you chilled Veuve Clicquot Champagne and fine chocolates to enjoy as you spend some quality time with your loved one.
Breakfast: Wake up to the inviting smell of homemade breakfast! In the oceanfront dining room we’ll have 3 courses waiting, starting with fresh baked goods like apricot walnut bread and mango macadamia gingerbread, followed by locally sourced fresh fruit. Finish up with our main course of the day – we have everything from whole wheat pancakes with wild Maine blueberries and Maine maple syrup to poached eggs on polenta and local greens with prosciutto and roasted asparagus!
Lobster Picnic: Wander the Inn’s grounds or hike in Camden Hills State Park for the perfect spot to enjoy our lobster picnic complete with two fresh lobster rolls and other gourmet treats, as you gaze at the rugged coastline.
Couple’s Massage: Pamper yourselves with rejuvenating in-room massages. Choose from Swedish, deep tissue, and aromatherapy massages and leave the stresses of your day-to-day behind!
Dinner at Francine Bistro: Spend some time lounging around the Inn and then head off to dinner at one of our favorite spots – Francine Bistro in nearby Camden. Enjoy savory French cuisine prepared with local ingredients including organic produce and some of the freshest seafood on the coast of Maine.
Breakfast: Wake up early and grab a cup of Maine roasted coffee before you head outside to watch the sunrise from one of our Adirondack chairs overlooking Penobscot Bay and the glorious Maine coast. When you’re ready, wander into the dining room for another homemade breakfast. Try different baked goods today – they’re all delicious – and a different delicious main course. Maybe it’ll be Belgian waffles with warm peach compote or perhaps mid-coast Maine’s Ducktrap smoked salmon and goat cheese omelets!
Farnsworth Museum: After breakfast, head down the coast a few miles south of the Inn to the coastal town of Rockland. This vibrant artist community is home to the acclaimed Farnsworth Art Museum where you will discover a unique exhibition marking the 100th anniversary of Andrew Wyeth’s birth. Experience his Maine watercolors, temperas, and drawings, as well as a photography display of the Olsen House. The Olsen House in Cushing, Maine was a major inspiration to the artist for three decades, and the setting for the 1948 painting, Christina’s World. The Wyeth Loft at Inn at Sunrise Point is named to honor Andrew Wyeth and the many talented painters and acclaimed artists in his family, including his son, Jamie, and father, N.C. Wyeth.
Lunch: We can’t tell you how many guests end up ordering another lobster picnic to enjoy on the road, but we also recommend you stop by the Owl’s Head General Store for a lobster roll and blueberry pie, both to be enjoyed outdoors at a picnic table at the Owl’s Head Lighthouse, before you continue your exploration of the arts scene –including the new Center for Maine Contemporary Art in Rockland.
Dinner at Primo: After a fun-filled day exploring Rockland, get ready for a truly exceptional dining experience! One of our favorite restaurants and increasingly difficult to get into during prime time in the summer months, this is a must for your mid-coast Maine spring getaway. Enjoy a true farm-to-table experience and savor house-cured and smoked meats alongside fresh produce grown in their on-site gardens. Ask us to make a reservation for you beforehand! Want lighter fare–saving Primo for another visit? ……Try another favorite…. In Good Company, a cozy, casual and delightful spot for tapas or dinner, located on Rockland’s Main Street. Chef Melody Wolfertz artfully prepares both light meals and full course dinners with locally procured cheeses, seafood, meats and produce. Select a wine from her exquisite collection or enjoy a handcrafted cocktail. Be sure to raise a glass to one of Maine’s finest artists, Andrew Wyeth!
One Last Fire: Treat yourself on your last night with a guest favorite – Prosecco and raspberries
Breakfast: Fuel up for the trip home with another one of our hearty 3-course breakfasts. Treat yourself to a fresh-baked warm scone or give our signature granola a try.
Check Out: Before you check out, take one last stroll through our gardens and down the rocky coast. Maybe grab a cup of tea or coffee for the road and depart with treasured memories from your romantic mid-coast Maine spring getaway.
