Linda is working full time in her hoop house, raised beds, and other gardens, so I agreed to write a column about some of our favorite summer get-a-ways. Let’s begin on the coast, which for us means way down east. And we’ll focus on small inns and B&Bs in beautiful places.
Deer Isle is a real gem. The Pilgrim’s Inn offers great rooms and some apartments and includes a wonderful restaurant. Nearby in Stonington, we enjoyed perhaps the best meal of our five years of travel writing – the tasting menu at Stonington’s Aragosta restaurant. We enjoyed both the visit to the Inn, in 2014, and the dinner at Aragosta, in 2015, with our friends Rusty and Sue Atwood, who recommended both places.
