Restaurant Week Maine lodging deals

February 19, 2010

Restaurant Week Maine is quickly approaching and this year, there are some decent lodging deals offered that complement the set-price dinners. For example, the Inn by the Sea is offering a $99 traditional room or garden suites (add $30 for a spa suite), Sun. through Thurs.; Camden’s Hartstone Inn has traditional rooms beginning at $175 including breakfast and dinner, and the Camden Harbour Inn has rates beginning at $87.50 pp including breakfast and dinner. Some Portland B&B’s are discounting rooms, other properties haven’t detailed the offerings, so you need to ask. In any case, it’s a great way to sample some fab properties at a fraction of the peak season costs.

Deals, deals, deals…. skiers/riders take note

3454-aThe skiing conditions are phenomenal here in northwestern Maine. The snow is light and very dry (thanks to that recent sub-Arctic air mass), the cover is great, and the crowds, well, what crowds? Perhaps that’s why both Sugarloaf and Sunday River are offering Winter Stimulus Packages (lift and lodging) for Presidents Weekend/Week (Feb. 13-19) that roll back prices 20- to 33-percent below 2008 rates. As always, read the fine print: max occupancy, resort fees, etc., but still a good deal.

This Week is White White World Week at Sugarloaf, with midweek tickets costing $35; with 20 inches of snow, give or take, forecast for today’s storm, Thursday or Friday might be good days to take a “personal” day from work.
