Meandering through Maine!

We are meandering up to Bar Harbor from Boston to meet up with family for 5 days. Last year we did it in one day stopping in Wiscasset for lobster roll and Camden for a stroll through downtown. We loved the whole feel of the area and so this year we are giving ourselves 3 nights to just explore.

We are a couple in our 50's and like small towns, flea markets, poking around shops,biking and hiking, glorious views and off the beaten path stuff. While we thought Camden was lovely it felt too crowded and touristy for us.

I have been thinking about one night in Belfast and then two nights somewhere close to Stonington (haven't been able to find an available room there) and spend a day going to Isle au Haut to bike and explore.

Any ideas, opinions and feedback would be so appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Have you made any progress in finding accommodation near Stonington? You could try Castine, which is another lovely small town in the area: http://www.pentagoet.com/ Or you could try Blue Hill or Surry, also in the same area: http://surryinn.com/
