Thoughts of Maine goes hand-in-hand with lighthouses and lobster, and here at James Place Inn Bed and Breakfast we could not agree more. There are many lighthouses here in Maine and are always a top attraction, even in rainy weather. In fact, many people, myself included, think they are more fun and interesting in the fog and rain. Think about it: fog rolling in so that you can actually see it moving across the water; waves pounding on the rocks and sending spray flying. A truly great Maine experience! There are many lighthouses around the Freeport area. Our “Lighthouse Package” includes maps to all the lighthouses you want to visit, heading to both the north and the south. Many are easy day trips and include plenty of other sites to see along the way.
Where there are lighthouses, there are often lobster shacks. The Freeport area is no exception. Whether you are after a full Maine lobster or the lobster roll favored by many, there are numerous great places to enjoy both in and around Freeport. (I call the lobster roll “lazy-man lobster.” All the taste without all the work)! We have numerous favorites we like to refer people to. Not a lobster fan? No worries, we hear that a lot! Most lobster shacks have something besides lobster and seafood. We also have amazingly good restaurants in the area for those wanting a more formal dining experience. Whatever you are wanting for food, we are sure to have a place to recommend.
When planning that Maine vacation, remember that Freeport is centrally located and many day trips are available within a one-hour radius. The Lighthouse Package here at James Place Inn Bed and Breakfast will get you started. We will be happy to help you fill in the rest!
