The Boulders was originally part of a well-known Maine summer resort. Back in the 19th century wealthy people in New York and Boston would throng, by steamship, to the cool, clean restful Maine coast for the summer. They called it rusticating. The Lookout Inn was a resort built for rusticators, and over the years has expanded to include a number of cottages – including the Boulders.
The resort is as popular today as it has always been. At the end of a quiet peninsula, it has a quintessentially Maine feeling. A long rocky, but walk-able beach surrounds a large open field. Views in every direction are spectacular. The ocean water of Jericho Bay surrounds the peninsula and is dotted with islands. One is even close enough to walk to at low tide!
You will have night skies with more stars than you can imagine, exquisite walking trails, pristine ocean water, and lots of local attractions.
Old-fashioned charm abounds. The Inn serves an elegant dinner just a short walk away. Or stay at home and make your own feast. The kitchen in the Boulders is well-equipped (including a lobster steamer), and there is a barbeque on the deck for grilling local fish.
It is a perfect place to relax and get back in touch with your life, your soul, and your family and friends. The cottage sleeps 8 so bring those you love to share the experience.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.
