I had a friend years ago whom owned the old bank on main st in lubec Maine. Also the old ice cream or clam shack at the other end of Maine street.
Sadly the sauce and I suppose mental illness took him.
Anyway I went up a couple times in winter. Across the street from the bank was a barroom that sat right on the bay. The ice formations on the back of the buildings on the bay were amazing to say the least.
If I remember correctly they also farmed salmon and scallops right there.
The round pens used to house the farms were quite beautiful in their own way.
Im considering moving just south of Acadia near Deer Isle full time.
I think I’ll like it, it’s that or the green mountains.
I do not like the harsh winters, but the summer and fall is fantastic. The coastline is spectacular. I live on Philips Lake which is about 45 minutes from Bar Harbor. It's reasonable to live here, and tons of nature. If you don't mind winter, you'll be fine! Always things to do, and tons of breweries.
