Our stay at The Moorings has been our Maine Dream come true. The morning fog rising over New Harbor was our real-life post card. Tony and Sally thought of every last detail to make our stay in Maine the best we have ever had. Each morning I would look up from my coffee and gaze into the postcard called New Harbor. Our apartment, The Barn, was more than just vacation lodging. It was our home along the Maine coast. My wife and I have dreamed about a Maine coast cottage vacation for years, now we feel like we have found our 'safe harbor'. We will return to take in the hospitality of The Moorings and the beauty of New Harbor many times.
We have just finished our 5th vacation at The Moorings and they just keep getting better. For the last two years we have stayed at The Brackett apartment. This downstairs apartment in the remodeled victorian style "captain's" house has the best view of New Harbor in the area. This year we stayed for 2 weeks and are considering even longer in the future. If waking up to a beautiful view of a working Maine harbor, making a pot of New England Blueberry coffee, walking up to the country store to buy a morning newspaper, fresh cranberry-walnut muffins (still warm enough to melt the butter,) watching the fog roll in or the eagles fly on the horizon, wandering through gardens beautiful enough to be considered one of Maine's botanical treasures, going for a leisurely swim in the elegant indoor pool or playing tennis on the immaculate tennis court and then taking a long time to decide which seafood restaurant tonight (or do you cook your own today?) and then relaxing to a quiet, peaceful New England night is your idea of heaven on Earth, then the Moorings is for you.
I have joked with Tony that The Moorings is like his personal, full-sized train set. He is constantly adding special touches and improving an already incredible facility.
My only hesitation in recommending The Moorings is that my wife and I want it to ourselves!!
