There’s a reason that Maine license plates boast the tag line, Vacationland. In the summer, the uppermost of the New England states attracts visitors for its sumptuous natural surroundings paired with charming villages where lobster rolls and languid afternoons upon the shore beckon. In the winter, there’s skiing and evenings spent cozying up beside the fire. Think exceptional inns seemingly plucked from the pages of a John Irving novel, busy port cities looking onto cottage-ringed bays, and pine-filled woods that stretch to eternity. Catch a ferry to a remote island and turn off the world as you wander the rocky shore. Embrace the state of mind that is Maine. It truly is the way life should be.
Going the Chase's is like going to school for how to do it right. I have never seen more beautiful produce which all comes from their farm. The styling and the food they make on site will always leave you wanting more. - Michael Bruno
