The Peak Loan Team goes to Bath, Maine.

We had the privilege to work with a client in Bath, Maine and what a beautiful place to be in May!  The weather was perfect, the air crisp and clean, and no snow!

Things to do: Reid State Park was a neat place to visit on our way to Five Islands Lobster Company. Both are located near Georgetown, ME which was celebrating their 300th birthday.  We ended up being too early in the season to get a fresh lobster roll but the empty wharf provided great photo opportunities. We also were lucky enough to see the Navy’s newest Zumwalt-Class Destroyer at Bath Iron Works located near downtown on the Kennebec River.

Where to Eat: We got a chance to eat a two local places in the heart of downtown Bath.  Beale Street Barbeque offers a low key setting with amazing barbeque and of course a full selection of local ME beers on tap.  We also got a chance to eat at J.R. Maxwell & Co. which was a great spot for lunch.  Although we had some great meals our Maine friends wouldn’t let us leave without trying Wicked Whoopies for dessert.  I think Red Velvet ended up being the favorite.

Shopping:  Places to shop don’t normally make our list but we felt we needed to make sure and mention our experience at Lisa-Marie’s Made in Maine.  Our experience in the store was a blast.  All of their items are from local artists and feature historic Maine items.  The staff is more than helpful and can tell you where the items come from and their unique histories.  Make sure to stop by if you are in the area.
