First of all, you'll never have a breakfast like this anywhere else. Today's eggs florentine were to die for, as was the mixed-fruit cobbler. The other days' breakfasts were just as good. The company of other guests, seated around the big table, made for a great start to the day.
You can't beat the setting, on an idyllic inlet of the Atlantic, a five to ten minute drive from downtown Brunswick, with its big-city variety of high-quality restaurants.
We stayed in the separate cottage. Our little two-bedroom apartment was richly decorated in a shoreline theme. The beds were very comfortable. High-speed internet access was spotty in our building but flawless in the main building's sitting room.
If you're visiting Bowdoin or Bates, or you have some other business in the area, you can't beat the beauty, solitude, and convenience of the Middle Bay Farm.
