More reasons to wail and whine

More sad news from Maine’s coast. The Oakland House, one of my faves, will not reopen this season.

Fourth-generation innkeeper Jim Littlefield, and his wife Sally, are returning the property edging Eggemoggin Reach, at the tip of the Blue Hill Peninsula, to a family compound, after having sold the Shore Oaks Seaside B&B and Boathouse Cottage into private family hands. The Rusticator Restaurant will not open this season, although they hope that someone will operate it and preserve it for future generations.

And another fire has destroyed yet another business in downtown Northeast Harbor. The Tan Turtle restaurant burned to the ground on Friday night; see this Bangor News story.
