So if you're going to stay in Maine, you should surely stay in a little white cottage with shutters. One with rose bushes creeping up the porch railing. One with the perfect climbing tree, a porch for morning coffee-sipping, and a master bedroom with a view of the ocean. Yes, that's the one.
And so it was that we found this perfectly charming little cottage on the "quiet side" of Acadia National Park, owned by a lovely woman who splits her time between New York City, Paris, and Maine—ooh-la-la! And we made it our home for six enchanting days. We boiled lobster here, celebrated the 4th of July here, lost teeth here, and organized tide pooling adventures here.

|A great kitchen, complete with lobster pot.|

|Oh, and when Mom gets silly, toddlers take advantage and swipe at full cups of milk above their heads. Or something like that.|
