My husband and I are looking to stay in Bar Harbor for a week or so in May. We love to travel in off-season, and find that usually the loss of a few places being closed is worth the gain of having our destination uncrowded and unhurried.
That being said, will Bar Harbor be a ghost town if we go the 2nd week in May? Should we wait a little later?
My husband is a kayaker, and would like to kayak (he kayaks in icy water and 20 degree temps here) whenever we go. Will anywhere be open that time of year for him to rent a kayak?
I'm a shopper, so I'm curious when most of the retail places open. Again, will May be too early?
Also, we're looking to stay in a cabin or cottage. It doesn't have to be right in the heart of things, but I'd like it to be as close to the water as possible. Any ideas?
I've learned so much already from this forum. I've never been to Maine before and can't thank ya'll (gee, think I'm southern??) enough for giving me so much great info already. I'm looking forward to seeing what I'll learn from this post. Thanks bunches!!
