Keep this under your hat but the best kept secret in all of Maine is a vacation destination; it's called THE MOORINGS in the mid-coast town of Bristol overlooking a little fishing village; New Harbor. It afforded us "weary travelers" in desperate need of rest and relaxation magnificent accomodations against a backdrop of the most beautiful landscape Maine has to offer. This entire 10-acre site is tastefully and painstakingly developed and dedicated to just 7 apartments. For the fortunate few who stay there it is this kind of vacation that is virtually impossible at most destinations. Beautiful ocean and harbor views resplendently augmented by boundless space.

It has the most beautiful indoor pool we have seen with a huge sundeck with southern exposure. As if this was not enough, it has a sound system that supplies soothing music while bathing. A few steps away, there's a separate glass building with a hot tub and shower which overlooks a tennis court, all with a view of the harbor.

The Moorings has all of the romance one can absorb. It has terraced gardens and landscaping gently lit in the evening. Simply to experience the plantings is an adventure.

At the summit of this development is "lookout hill" the highest topographical location in New Harbor with commanding views of this charming lobstering harbor. On this hill there is an old garage converted to an office and community building with motorized exercise bikes, a computer for internet access, community telephones, and answering service for all guests of The Moorings. Oh, lest I forget there's a free washer-dryer laundry room and complementary towels at the pool? This was the best vacation value never mind experience of a lifetime.

Kudos to the owners of this place. If they ever decide to convert to condos or co-op ownership we will be the first in line. Our only wish is that it never changes. I should not praise this place so lavishly. If people read about this they might tell their friends and the next thing you know, there'll be a traffic line along South Side Road encouraging its growth. Forget I mentioned it.

My girlfriend and i stayed at the MOORINGS in NEW HARBOR last summer i am afraid
that if i did not wriite this review this glorious place could escape to
obscurity.It has every conceivable comfort one can imagine.Perhaps i should not praise this place so lavishly .I would not wish for this incomperable
place to become so popular as to become overrun with people and become just another tourist spot so please stay away!
