Snug and toasty by the fire, you can watch storms sweep across the bay, sea smoke if it is cold enough, seagulls riding the updrafts when the wind is out of the west, and an occasional eagle. In Boothbay Harbor, just three miles away, at least one of the best restaurants is open every day and there is plenty of parking; the pace is a little slower and the attention a little warmer. There are many events around the holidays including Gardens Aglow through the end of December at the Botanical Gardens when the whole town is decorated, and the historic Opera House has programs (not opera) year-round.
