Location: The Fairfield Inn & Suites Brunswick Freeport is approximately 28 miles NE of the Portland airport. It is conveniently located off I-295 and Hwy 1. However, it is easy to miss your turn onto Old Portland Road, and once you do, you will think you are in the wrong spot.
Value: As Marriott rewards members, we used one of our free night certificates, earned from Marriott's recent promo. Otherwise, our room would have been $179.00. What I love about Fairfield Inn's is that they offer complimentary parking, WiFi, and breakfast. All small expenses, that can really add up, especially for a long stay.
Room: We stayed in room 315, which had a partial wall dividing the sitting area & bed. The room featured two TVs and a Sony sound system compatible with iPhone & iPod. I especially liked the long bathroom counter, with ample room for two people to get ready at the same time. The shower had a Waterpik showerhead with plenty of water pressure. There was also plenty of light in the bathroom for putting on makeup, which is generally not the case in a most hotel rooms. However, the king size bed was centered in the sleeping area, which left very little walking room between the bed & the AC unit. This can be an issue, if you have to get up in the middle of the night.
Housekeeping: Upon arrival, the room was clean and in order. Since we were only there one night, I cannot attest to the daily housekeeping service.
Front Desk: We checked in around 8:45 pm on a Sunday evening. Check-in was quick & efficient. However, we were given a room directly across from the elevator, even though the hotel was no where near capacity. This is the second time this has happened on a free night certificate, and since it happened in two different states, I'm wondering if this is policy for free rewards nights.

... he Portland Museum of Art for a day, taking a break mid-afternoon to snag a table at Duck Fat Restaurant. Even though we arrived at 2:30 p.m., there was a 30 minute wait and we didn't mind at all. We were in for a treat with the house specialty of duck fat fried French fries topped with duck gravy and a fried egg! So very good, so decadent and so enjoyable. Yet, we were pleased with ourselves that we had shared one large order between the four of us!
... picked and prepared for each order. We agreed to sample as many flavors as possible, so we each ordered different entrees to pass and started with an interesting appetizer of smoked heritage pork tenderloin, lamb shank terrine and chicken liver pate. Arctic char, Atlantic scallops, wild black sea bass and hanger steak were our chosen entrees, along with sides of asparagus and bright garden carrots. We finished the meal with rhubarb galette and dark chocolate torte.
Day two: Off to Cape Elizabeth to see the Portland Head Light, an important lighthouse in maritime history. Just south of Portland, this would be a day trip.
We also visited Kennebunkport, where we played political voyeurs, trying to catch a glimpse of the George Walker Bush family at their summer retreat on Walker's Point. Alas, it was across the bay and the family was probably far away because ...
We wanted to eat lobster and oysters on the half shell, track elusive moose, and watch the sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean when we visited Maine for three weeks. We were more than satisfied by accomplishing three of those goals and happy to leave the moose for another visit to this most northeasterly state in the U.S.
For several years, our friends Harold and Dana had suggested that Ken, Marette, Jack and I visit ...
... specialties. Maine is famous for seafood, particularly lobster. Nay found the best place in town, the Harbor Fish Market, and it didn't disappoint. It took a long time to decide what to take with us (we knew we had cooking facilities at our next stop and I was keen to cook something, anything). The guy who helped us was great, he left us alone for ages and then helped us get the best deal on what was fresh ...
