Antiquing in Maine
Forgotten vestiges of the past are rediscovered, re-purposed and given a modern dust-off in Boothbay Harbor and surrounding Mid-Coast areas - from furniture and bric-a-brac to take-a-load-off roadside cafes. This seasonal destination is especially breathtaking in the summer, for its thick foliage and refreshingly cool breezes, and fall when Boothbay Harbor and our coastal shores, charming Harbors & Coves speckled with tiny fishing towns. Drive up Route 27, along the Kennebec River, fiery-hued maple and oak leaves stand out against green pine, fir and spruce trees. We love it when the forest canopies are brilliant shades of red and gold.
