Oceanfront Maine Bed and Breakfast, best bed and breakfast in Maine, luxury bed and breakfast in Maine, luxury Inn in Camden, Maine

In August of this year (2016), I’ve spent 4 amazing days in Maine. Last time I was in Maine was about 15 years ago so I was excited to be back! Without exaggeration, the biggest highlight of my trip was staying in absolutely the best Bed & Breakfast in Maine – Inn at Sunrise Point, in Camden, Maine (or, technically, Lincolnville, Maine)! As you can see in the first couple of photos, it is truly an oceanfront property.   And,  as the name of the place suggests, it’s a great place to watch beautiful sunrises and sunsets!  Some people were staying at this inn specifically to watch meteor showers too!

There were especially many tulips, of all different kinds and colors!  Enjoy the photos! [click to continue…]
