The Blue Hill Fair Week and Labor Day Weekend.
Make the coastal Blue Hill Peninsula your vacation destination. Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park are a day trip away.


From the motorcycle jumping to live musical performances...there is plenty to do at the Blue Hill Fair.
Any 2-day weekend or 3-day mid-week stay during the period starting with arrivals Sunday, August 23, 2015 - Departures Tuesday, September 8, 2015.

Here's the summer's final week, a splendid week to be on the Blue Hill Peninsula, topped by Labor Day Weekend and the Blue Hill Fair.

Other great on-going attractions include you finding wonderful harvests from any of a large number of organic farms in this immediate area.

As official summer days wind to a close, we start to experience the clear days and cooler evenings that the season brings. It is a wonderful time on the Peninsula!

We have cottages with one or two bedrooms. The beds and linens are very welcoming and comfortable. All cottages have hide-a-bed sofas which can accommodate extra family members. They all have living rooms, full baths, and either kitchens or kitchenettes. Daily housekeeping is included, organic meals (if that's your choice) are self-catering.

Now with WiFi.

Children of all ages (0-100 years old) welcome. Non-smoking. No pets on premises, except dogs and their owners staying at Birches Cottage, thank-you.

The Blue Hill Fair has events for everyone, this is the horse pull.
