Need Honeymoon Advice

Hey everyone - My lady and I are getting hitched in August. We're looking for New England honeymoon ideas. We're big water people; ocean or lake doesn't matter, just as long as we can look at it, fish it and swim in it. We're campfire/beer people, so we like a bit of space, but having some nightlife nearby would be ideal. As of now I'm thinking of Sebago Lake Maine, just because I grew up on it and love the area. Any other ideas?

Nova Scotia. We honeymooned there many years ago and it is still a great vacation memory.

Would be a little 'different' and maybe not as much privacy as a camp on a lake, but worth checking into the multi-day Windjammer cruises out of Camden Maine.

We were at Tall Timber Lodge in Pittsburg NH this winter on our snowmobiles. Right on the lake, ATV trails, awesome restaurant. We loved it! Supposed to be great fishing too in Summer. Check it out online. Charming and quaint, cabins and rooms in the lodge.

Have it all: Wentworth by the Sea, Portsmouth NH

http://www.wentworth.com/

We have stayed here and it is well worth it.. Not really a camp-fire / beer place, but this is your honeymoon too..

There are four Grand Hotels in NH: The Wentworth by the Sea, The Omni Mt. Washington Resort (my other recommendation), The Mountain View Grand and the Balsams (currently closed for extensive renovations)... These historic hotels have all been modernized and all have their own character... Each is beautiful and worthy of a honeymoon...

I recommend The Wentworth because you said you want some night-life... Portsmouth has a great down-town with some of the best dining in Northern New England.. Lots of young people in the area, fun bars etc.

If you like being on the water you could charter a boat... fishing, site seeing etc...

Portland ME is an hour north.. Boston is an hour south... The lakes region is 1.5 hours north west... Portsmouth is a great, central location...

The Isle of Shoals is a good day trip.. https://islesofshoals.com/

Max BMW in Hampton gives no-questions asked demos...

There are a ton of things to do if you do a little homework...

Ha!... I thought you were going to say: 'Not really our bag'

Yeah.. Check it out... even if you just stay there a couple of days then move to another spot, that would be cool..

The Omni Mt Washighton is amazing as well...

http://www.omnihotels.com/hotels/bre...unt-washington

It has a number of dining options and 'The Cave' has music, dancing and table shuffle board (actually a fun drinking game)

Had too much fun to finish the blog, so it only covers about half the trip...only got better from there!

Have fun, whatever you choose!
