Christmas by the Sea 2014!

IMG_1154Ho Ho Ho! Merry Christmas?! The Holiday season seems to be here, whether we’re anxious or not, the yuletide is upon us. We have free Christmas wrapping paper/tape etc available for all those wonderful gifts you have to give, and a complimentary hot peppermint patty (hot choc and peppermint schnapps!) while you enjoy your stay!

In reality, Black Friday, Cyber Monday and those other “retail inspired” celebrations are NOTHING in comparison to what we “small townies” or “village people” call a good time. We have the lighting of the star atop Mt. Battie, the Parade of Lights in Downtown Rockland and a similar daytime idea for Camden as well. Breakfast with Santa at the Chowder House, and much, much more to occupy our time. Sheesh! Santa even takes the time to cruise into some local harbors by boat, as the reindeer stay on ice atop the North Pole. Whatever we’re doing, it’s all relevant, and made possible by hundreds of volunteers, business owners, and Community members alike who LOVE the season, and love to help out. We’re grateful for the good times, and memories that are made. For more information, if you’re here for the duration, we encourage you to visit our local Chamber of Commerce’s event on their Facebook page!

US National toboggan Championships Feb 10-12th

The U.S. National Toboggan Championships is the only organized wooden toboggan race in the country and possibly the world. The toboggan chute is located in Camden, Maine at the Camden Snow Bowl, just a few miles from the  Blue Harbor House.  The competition attracts fierce competition from all over the world.  We have several competitors from last year’s event  coming back to compete again- we’re  looking forward to seeing your wonderful wacky costumes.  Good luck!

Camden harbor kayak tour

One of our  most  popular  tours  this summer is the two hour  Camden Harbor kayak tour.  At just $35.00 pp this two hour guided tour  is great value, and has had rave reviews from our guests.   You’ll head out past cruising yachts and tall masted schooners, taking in the majestic coastline from a unique perspective.      Still time to book up.  The kayak tour sets off  from Camden harbor, just a short walk from the Inn.  We book the whole thing – you just show up and have fun!

 

Tour Seven Maine Lighthouses June 25-26th

Seven land-accessible lighthouses along the mid-Maine coast will open for the Midcoast Maine Lighthouse Challenge, a two-day self-guided driving tour along the coastline from Pemaquid Point, tipping the peninsula south of Damariscotta, to Castine, on the western edge of the Blue Hill peninsula. Most will open their towers to visitors. Also part of the itinerary is the Maine Lighthouse Museum, in Rockland, just nine  miles from the Blue harbor House Inn.

Included on the tour are: Dyce’s Head Light, Castine; Fort Point, Stockton Springs; Grindle Point Light, Islesboro; Rockland Breakwater Light, Rockland; Owls Head Light, Owls Head; Marshall Point Light, Port Clyde; and Pemaquid Point Light, Pemaquid.

Special displays at the Rockand Breakwater Lighthouse, Saturday and Sunday, 9 a.m.-3 p.m., will highlight modern optics for lighthouses and navigation and show how the Coast Guard keeps the lights at many of Maine’s offshore stations. The M/V Rendezvous will offer water passage to the lighthouse throughout the day, from Middle Pier in Rockland, or hike nearly one-mile hike along the breakwater to reach the lighthouse at its tip.

When you stay at the Blue Harbor House, we  provide  a lighthouse tour map, directions and  history of each lighthouse.
