A good way to break up your trip if you have kids
Jul 2021 • Family
My granddaughter, who is 8, loves stopping here because of the great selection of “ fidget toys” that you can pop, stretch, squeeze , etc. The fudge is very good with many flavors and some of the candies are hard to find anywhere else: Boston Baked Beans, various sugar coated nuts and candy cigarettes. They have gotten rid of much of the taxidermy now, they had one monkey and an albatross and a snake skin. I was rather disturbed to see an Egyptian mummy displayed in a glass case amidst the toys, but my granddaughter took no notice of it. It was much more of a “roadside attraction” the first time I went there 40 years ago. It breaks up the trip a little anyway. Be aware there are no public restrooms but there is porta potty around the back.

Great place to stop on Maine's Midcoast

This is a store and mini-museum combined. The stuffed gorilla when you first enter is great! Delicious fudge. My wife did most of her gift shopping here and the attached quaint jewelry store.

Great Fudge Selection!
Aug 2020
Fudge, nuts, taxidermy curiosities, children's novelties, tourist trinkets, there is something for everyone here. Although they don't have nearly the stuff that they used to in years past, it's still a fun place to stop and stretch your legs on the way to Acadia National Park.

Not like in the past
Jun 2019 • Solo
Perry’s has far less stuff than years ago
They still do have good fudge .
Easy to get in and out of. The smallest kids might like it but I doubt older kids will.
If you are in the Belfast area you could stop by but don’t make a trip from out of the area

One of the ORIGINAL LAST ROAD SIDE ATTRACTIONS from Back in the Day
Jul 2018 • Family
I have visited the New England States in the Summer quite a bit over the years. "Perry's Nut House " in Belfast Maine is truly an HISTORIC LAND MARK as much as it is a TOURIST ATTRACTION. The history of this establishment dates back to the 1920's when people were just starting to get around a fair amount in the AUTOMOBILE. Road Side drive in Tourist attractions of all types sprung up all over New England over the years. The peak of this period was in the 1950's. Perry's Nut House is one of the last survivors of this period. I make it a point to stop in every time I am in the area. Yes, it's getting old and some of it's former Glory is fading, but it is such joy to visit and perhaps more for the older folks especially a reminder of Happy Days of another time now long past.

Sad yet quirky
Sep 2018 • Friends
The place is a bit worn and sad- the oddities are very worn and probably need a complete make over- there’s a stuffed gorilla ,a really sad looking mummy and a lizard. They stock a variety of candy and joke gifts. The fudge is quite good, reasonably priced and they provide samples. It’s worth a quick stop and little kids would like it.

Fun for Little Kids and Great Fudge!
Jul 2018 • Family
The fudge is incredible! After that, it's a fun place to take little kids, with many toys to check out and a few rides. Forget the souvenirs though—they're nothing special.
