The High Tide Inn is the definition of "Home Away From Home." From the moment we arrived to the moment we pulled out of the long driveway, we were treated as family. Mark and I arrived late on Saturday having driven down the coast of Maine and the owners waited up to greet us and make sure we were comfortable in our cottage. We were on the second floor of a cozy cottage that included our own private porch and kitchen. We could even see the ocean from our windows.
In the morning, we walked to the main house where a complimentary popover breakfast is served from 7:30 to 10 on the weekends. We were served warm popovers and muffins and helped ourselves to endless mugs of coffee and fresh fruit. The breakfast was served on a gorgeous wrap-around porch on the back of the house overlooking the ocean. You couldn't paint a prettier picture. The living room was cozy with white and dark blue decorations and a cozy fire place where I could imagine curling up next to during a snow storm. After finishing our scrumptious popovers, we enjoyed a walk down the sprawling lawn decorated with lawn chairs to their private beach to dip our feet in the frigid water.
When it was time to leave, check out was a breeze and the staff was all smiles and warm wishes for a safe drive. The lobby furnishings are decorated in cozy blues and whites surrounding a fireplace that would make this a pleasant oasis on a snowy afternoon. The High Tide Inn is a quick five minute drive to downtown Camden but is tucked away off of the main road and provides peace and serenity to its visitors without the noise of the town or cars driving by. This is an oasis in an already beautiful town and I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else.

With the KahBang music festival having been canceled, Mark and I decided to make the most of the weekend and drive down the coast of Maine to see "Vacationland". We had been told to visit Camden a hundred times by friends and coworkers, so it was time to make it happen. We planned to leave early Saturday morning and drive down highway 95 to see …
... but sunny and bright.
We stopped along the road at a quaint little fishing village called Wiscasset and spent some time walking around and soaking it up.
Arriving in Camden we went straight to the information centre and were directed to two activities to get our exploration started. Firstly was an hours round trip walking through town down to a view across the water to a small lighthouse. The walk took ...
... learned a couple things. It was, at times, agonizing, frustrating, while at the same time, awesome. Sraddha is tooling around the area whilst I toil away. Camden Hills SP has mostly unlevel spots in the forest but we managed to score a pretty level spot in the open area with a peekaboo view of Penobscot Bay. We did venture up on Mt Battie (1100 feet or so) to see ...
... of lobstermen, but it was good to have a little more time with my fellow participants. It’s been really nice to spend the week with these interesting people, and to gain their perspective about the things we’re doing. It’s really enhanced the experiences we had – the fun things, as well as the challenges such as braving the cold rain and steep climb to be able to say we all stood inside a real lighthouse!
... of the light as we shaded our eyes from the bright beacon in the center of the tiny room. Then it was back down to the keeper’s cottage, which is where our morning’s speaker had lived during his time as keeper, and which now houses a shop and some displays about the history of the lighthouse.
We got a chance to dry out and relax at our next stop, Breakwater Vineyards Winery. It was an opportunity to see how life in Maine is changing in ...
