Taking a break from our 2013 Vacation of a Lifetime grand prize winners, here’s an update from Patricia and John Biasuzzi, who took a second place prize of a $500 Select Registry gift certificate. Patricia and John used the opportunity to return to the Dockside Guest Quarters, one of their favorite places to escape.
Recently we enjoyed a wonderful stay at our favorite inn – the lovely Dockside Guest Quarters overlooking picturesque York Harbor, Maine. We have been going to this special place for 12 years and when we arrive, we always feel we have returned “home.”
The owners, the Lusty family, are very hard working, dedicated and welcoming and maintain the property to perfection. It has retained a true “old Maine” feeling providing a sense of beauty and tranquility away from the noise and hustle of daily life. So once again, from the deck of our favorite room, we enjoyed the calm evening scenery as fishermen returned from their day at sea and the Boon Island Light flashed in the distance.
We awoke to brilliant sunrises and the friendly chugging sounds of boats heading back out to sea. Early morning walks took us past the colorful little harbor and along the rocky cliffs overlooking the ocean while the sea birds were busy with their daily rituals.
After that, being quite hungry, we returned to the Dockside where a delicious buffet breakfast awaited – tasty egg dishes, homemade baked goods, colorful fresh fruit, and many other goodies – a wonderful way to begin the day’s adventures! Sadly our stay came to an end but we’ll be returning this fall to “our” beautiful, peaceful place set among towering trees overlooking the sea.
