    Spent a long weekend at the Anchorage Inn in York, Me.
    An oceanfront room was only $136 & included a full course dinner for two with no restrictions (Fresh lobster & Tenderloin :drool:).
    The Restaurant is on the ocean too.
    It was awesome!
    Travelled up to Kennebunkport & saw Pres Bush's oceanfront house & all the secret service :p
    Neddick Lighthouse, Kittery Trading Post, Marginal Way all the free touristee places & no crowds due to the off season. :bananadance:
    I will post some pics later.
    The resort itself has been a fixture on Long Sands since 1963 & is owned by the Ramsey family. Definitely they do a great job with the food (all fresh) & the rooms were clean, comfy, with all the amenties. They have some upscale suites too but my plan was to keep the cost down & I was with my Mom. :eek:
    I don't know what they charge in season but a nice getaway with the ocean right there. It was really nice.
    If someone is looking for a inexpensive weekend excursion on the Maine Coast this is it. :thumbsup:

    Thanks Matt Here are a few of the pics. President Bush's place was one of my favorite stops.
    Yes Maine is one of my favorite places to Road Trip. How far of a drive is it for you? Mine is about 4 hrs to the ocean.

    What happens if you only live 20 minutes from that view???:cool::D

    Simons Mom, you are right on with the "views"....and with off-season here,long quiet walks help recharge the "mind" after any long week....;)

    If you can fit a longer trip to "DownEast Maine",try to get up around the Brunswick/Bath area and "walk" Popham Beach and visit the "Fort"....:)...with the "NEW" Cabellas as a 1/2 way stop (Plus a 4 ****BBQ restaurant in the same complex..)

    Your escapes to Maine are like mine to Vermont.....R&R plus quiet time.....Quechee 2-3 times a year , Class 4 roads along the "River" make for GREAT SNOW wheeling:cool::cool:..plus EXCELLENT sno-shoeing ;):D

    Sometimes we New Englanders FORGET how spoiled mother nature has made us ;):rolleyes::rolleyes:....."Day trips" can include mountains, oceans,lakes or BIG Cities.......

    Great picturs Judy! Downeast Maine is only about a 2 1/2 hour drive for me. Very crowded in the summer, but great after labor day.
