            Three things drew us back to Tucson, Arizona this year: an amazing birding guide, Melody Kehl, awesome Mexican restaurants, and easy access to southeast Arizona.

            After our first-ever trip here last year, we couldn’t wait to return. Our travel plans these days always include an overnight stay in a room with a beautiful view of the harbor at the Holiday Inn by the Bay in Portland, where they keep our car while we’re away and shuttle us to and from the airport. Trust me – this is the way to start your vacation.

Cliff House in Amazing!

            The Cliff House in Cape Neddick is, of course, on a cliff, and every one of their 132 rooms has an amazing ocean view. This is a place that pampers you, from their Cliff Top hot tub to the elegant spa sanctuary.

            Scott, who checked us in, offered lots of great suggestions for the many things to do there. At that point, I knew we should have booked for more than one night!

            Sunday River’s Grand Summit Hotel is certainly grand, and it was packed with skiers including many families with kids. Guests were there from all over the northeast, and we even saw three vehicles from Nova Scotia. The views are really spectacular here, and we enjoyed riding up and down the mountain to check out all the inns and restaurants.

Noble House Inn is historic, elegant, and welcoming

            This was the fourth time we have stayed at Bridgeton’s Noble House Inn, each time enjoying a different room. Each room has its own personality. The Rugosa room overlooked the large backyard. The Noble room had a four poster bed and was on the second floor. The Pine Forest room looked out at – of course – the forest of pine trees.

You need to get-a-way to this wonderful place!

            Reading through the guest book in our suite at Wolf Cove Inn, a wonderful Maine Bed & Breakfast, I find visitors from Texas to Tennessee, California to Colorado to Connecticut, Nevada to North Carolina, and even England, plus folks from our state. Yes, lots of people are finding their way to this very special place in Poland.

The Samoset is a great winter get-a-way

City or Town:

            Lots of families with kids were enjoying the Samoset Resort with us on a cold January weekend. And it’s easy to understand why, from the indoor playground and swimming pool to the ice rink to the comfortable rooms.

            We scheduled our visit to coincide with Sunday afternoon’s Pies on Parade fundraiser for the local food bank. With savory and sweet pies in 25 locations around Rockland, well, I don’t have to tell you why I love this event! This year I couldn’t get beyond 11 places before I just could not eat another bite.

Inn by the Sea is World Class

City or Town: 
Cape Elizabeth

                Entering the two story suite at Inn By the Sea in Cape Elizabeth, I breathe a sigh of relaxation. Its contemporary design is a stark contrast to our old cape in Mt Vernon. And it is one of the most beautiful places we have ever stayed.

                Their spacious rooms are tastefully decorated but not over-decorated. It is a relaxing space filled with clean lines and artwork. There's even a small kitchen with island seating as well as a microwave, fridge, coffee pot, and full set of dishes and silverware. The wall facing the sea includes a two story window with an automatic shade. Double doors open to a private deck.
