Summer’s here and it’s still only July. The oppressive heat in central US is not an issue here in coastal Maine, with the thermometer down in the low 50’s last night. It’s now easy to see why Maine was the #1 summer destination in the country back at the turn of the century, before air conditioners were invented.
The Mt. Kineo House, originally built in 1848, was the largest inland waterfront hotel in America, accommodating over 500 guests. The hotel is gone, after the demise of the railroad branch in 1933. You can still play golf on the original course, and check out last week’s Bangor Daily News article on hiking to the top of Kineo for the finest view in Maine.
I highly recommend taking the $10 boat ride to the island and experiencing hiking perfection in the real Maine.
