We will be visiting family in Portland for Thanksgiving. We like to get away for one night (Sat the 26th) and will probably leave out of Portland Sun eve. I've never been to Ogunquit. In the past we have spent the night in Portland (which I know quite well) or Boston (flying out of Logan). Looking for something new this trip. During the summer we love Peak's Island, Bar Harbor and Camden.
We are hoping for a quiet, good nights sleep. A nice dinner, maybe brunch on Sun. A place to have a few drinks Sat night, without having to drive. Scenery. Cold and snow don't scare us (I was raised in ME and live in MI).
I'm nervous about going off season. Will there be restaurants/inns that meet our need? Any other suggestion within a reasonable drive of Portland to spend the night (We leave Sun eve out of Portland).
I'll get down to the nitty gritty as we get closer to the trip, but need to book hotels/flights etc soon. Just trying to decide if it's miserable in these coastal towns in the winter and better to spend the night in Portland or Boston.
