Kismet Inn

Bath, Maine

Enjoy accomodations as the all-organic bed and breakfast overlooking Bath's Library Park—Kismet Inn. Handstitched linens, a handcarved wood-frame bed, and a to-die-for breakfast will make you feel right at home; 207/443-3399.

Eat: Red's Eats and Five Islands Lobster Co., serve up lobster rolls that are as quintessentially Maine as the setting. Slurp back a few oysters on the half shell overlooking the water at Damariscotta River Grill, or splurge a bit at Solo Bistro where you can find local seafood with an Asian spin.

Do: Take advantage of the beautiful beaches at Popham Beach State Park and Reid State Park. Or, catch a flick or live show at the historic Lincoln Theatre. Also take a peek at the exhibits at the Farnsworth Art Museum. Back in the day, it was the only reason to stop in small-town Rockland.
