EXPERIENCING THE COAST OF MAINE
Maine is more than a destination – it’s an experience that will take your breath away. Maine embraces all that is authentic, unique and simple, and Mainers take pride in enjoying the wide-open spaces of the state’s deep woods and vibrant coastline. They find inspiration in the natural world to incorporate into their everyday activities – from the straightforward preparation of the perfect lobster roll to the world-renowned craftsmanship of their boats.
Whether you choose to fly by a private chartered flight or a commercial flight, we'll greet you to gather your baggage and drive you to your luxury accommodations.
We like to provide either a black or white Chevrolet suburban, or even two depending on the size of the party.
S&P will take care of all your transportation needs. We'll do so much more than just opening the door for you.
The fresh salt air and the morning fog set a tone for the entire trip. The richness in the scenery keeps you
occupied as you just try to take it all in.

“Cooking is a caring and nurturing act. It’s the ultimate gift for someone, to cook for them. It creates all this beautiful stuff, conversation, appreciation. All the most important things in life you do around a dinner table.” -Curtis Stone
The food is a big part of any travel experience. We like to dive into the local ingredients and buy organic using the best ingredients possible. As a Chef, the goal is to marry particular ingredients together and get the heck out of the way. We let those flavors shine by keeping it simple!
It is always fun to travel and visit some of the great local restaurants. At the same time, it is draining to have every meal out too. We look to balance that for you and to give you the best of both worlds.
Each morning, we'll have a delightful breakfast ready for you on your waking schedule. For lunch, you'll be on the go in gorgeous Maine. There are some great spots to take a break for a bite to eat. After a long day, it's nice to shut it down back at the house. Those nights, dinner will be prepared by your private chef. We like to keep it fun with family style preparations and great flavor combinations. Whether that is served at the outside table or the dining room table, those evenings are always special, full of Food, Family/Friends, Stories, and Laughter. The best part is that you and your party do not need to do anything other than just enjoy each others company.
We certainly can accommodate any dietary restrictions that anyone in your party requires - it's not a problem!
We adore the different restaurants the area has to offer and know them well. One evening during your trip, you will be able to enjoy that experience too. We'll arrange all the details and drive you there and back. We will take care of all the coordination with the restaurant including settling the bill so you don't have to.
Experiences come in many forms. Most can be orchestrated and some spontaneously happen when surrounded by the right people.
We believe in both!
In addition to the leisure time spent at the luxury home, there are many ways to experience Maine. Over the years, we have narrowed down the very best experiences and have established relationships with the locals who provide them. We are excited to share them with you.
During a week long trip, we have found it's nice to add several experiences during that time to break-up the schedule. Here are three great ways to see the area from a different perspective.
PRIVATE SAILBOAT JAUNT
Seeing the harbors and coastline from your own private boat screams Maine.
During the afternoon, we'll take you dockside to a custom build 52' Sailboat with a crew of two.
As you sail through some of Maine's islands. You can also expect to see harbor seals, Atlantic puffins, lighthouses, the gorgeous coast line, and beautiful homes perched on the cliffs.
Of course, you'll need Champagne, cheese and crackers as the wind pushes you through the New England sea.
Total Time: 2.5 Hours
Getting on this real working lobster boat with Captain Krista is one of our favorite experiences.
After a hearty breakfast at the house, we'll drive to the dock with the fog still crossing the water and board Krista's Lobster boat that she bought from her grandfather.
Krista will show everyone her majestic life on the water as we pull up some of her traps through the morning.
We'll plan to keep enough fresh lobsters, as we'll prepare for a big lobster bake on the beach for dinner that night full of great drink, family/friends, and laughs.
Total Time: 3 - 4 Hours
When hiking Acadia National Park, there's really something for everyone.
We'll show you our five favorite trails. With over 150 miles of hiking trails in the park, there are strenuous, exposed, iron rung trails as well as easy family strolls.
If you like hiking, you'll want to hike Maine.
After a hearty breakfast, we'll drive you to the base of the trail to meet your guide. After a hike to the summit or just an easy stroll down the rock beaches, you'll take advantage of the incredible scenery and coastline Maine has to offer.
Of course we'll take beverages and snacks to make your hike successful.
Total Time: 4 Hours
We have made a point not to provide you with every single detail for these experiences. For us, it's the details that make these incredible experiences special. We're excited to share these with you on your trip with us.
"What a treat! My massage set the tone for the weekend. I felt so relaxed.
The entire experience was beyond pleasurable! Thank you!"
One evening during your trip, a local Professional Masseuse will be brought in to provide a massage for the entire group.
S&P brings a complete Concierge Service to you along with your own Private Host / Chef on your trip. They handle everything so you don't have to. Travel like a billionaire lives everyday.
THE BEST TIME TO VISIT
These dates below is that most people would say is the best time to visit the state of Maine.
|July||July can still be brisk with the late Summer Maine provides, but still gorgeous.|
|August||August is our favorite time of the year to head to Maine. The coast is busy with marine activity, but still able to get away in your large private home for the climate escape.|
|September||September introduces Hurricane season, but still is a gorgeous time to hang-out in Maine.|
