3 Tips for Planning the Perfect Midcoast Maine Honeymoon
Choose a Relaxing Setting
If you’re in the process of planning your wedding, you’re likely experiencing some stress. There’s a lot to do, and it can take months! Often, when the big day arrives, couples are ready for the honeymoon to begin. That’s why it’s important to choose a destination that’s relaxing and peaceful. We recommend leaving the overseas trips for another time and focusing on an easy, nearby vacation spot with beautiful scenery. Boothbay Habor is one of the most romantic getaways in Maine and makes for the perfect honeymoon. Here, peace, privacy, and gorgeous landscapes set the scene for a romantic getaway where all you need to worry about is enjoying yourselves.
Keep It Simple
The last thing you want to worry about is an endless itinerary on your honeymoon. You’re here to unwind and rest, so keeping your schedule as clear as possible is recommended. Don’t overbook yourself with an array of activities. Instead, enjoy times of solitude and spontaneity. In fact, you may want to sleep way more than you anticipate! During the day, enjoy simple pleasures like leisurely strolls (or bike rides) along the water, shopping in quaint downtowns shops, eating delicious lobster rolls and other local cuisine, and sipping cocktails with a stunning water view at sunset.
Your honeymoon should be even better than your dream vacation. Since the focus is on relaxation and celebrating love, why not indulge a little bit during your stay? Add our Romantic Package to your reservation and let us treat you like royalty. Upon arrival, you’ll be greeted with a chilled bottle of sparkling wine in your room, which you can enjoy on your private porch. You’ll also have a gourmet box of chocolates to nibble on, silk rose petals scattered on the bed, and a gorgeous rose bouquet. You can even take it a step further and book our Sunset Schooner Sail that comes with wine and appetizers.
Unwind from the Pre-Wedding Stress at Topside Inn
The best day of your life can also be the most tiring, but it doesn’t have to continue into your honeymoon. Spend a few days at Topside Inn in Boothbay Harbor and catch up on sleep and snuggles.
