Two couple traveling 1st week of April - want Lobster

Thanks for all the input.
We had a wonderful time in Maine. The highlight was Ogunquit with the "Marginal Way" walk path, then the "Lobster Shack" after out long walk.

I'm doubtful that we would eat Lobster again... although I loved the lobster rolls. But the work, mess and such of eating the actual lobster was an experience!

Glad we did it, and glad for all the advice and help.... you have a great state!

Just guessing, but I would suggest we will probably come over one morning, stay the evening, then all the next day, stay the night again (maybe another place), then the third day leave Maine.
So, one full day, plus an evening before and a morning after.

We don't have a specific destination in Maine. All we know is that we want to see the ocean, enjoy some lobster, and take in some "old world" New England

Thanks for some input.

We're two couples traveling for the first time to the north Atlantic coast. We're traveling on a tight budget but have a real craving for Lobster. We don't need a fancy place, as a mater of fact, we would like to find a non-tourist type place... maybe an older restaurant, but with good inexpensive lobster. We have never enjoyed much lobster here in the mid-west, so we would like to enjoy the real thing.

Second, we'll be looking for a Bed & Breakfast, or a hotel that is unique. Again, on a budget, but clean, and warm.

We're traveling from Michigan, near the Mackinaw Bridge and Mackinaw Island, so we know all about tourist traps.. not our thing. We'll be staying with our daughter in Rutland Vermont, then traveling to Maine for a couple days just to see the Atlantic and enjoy the local stuff.

We prefer to stay away from big cities.

Thanks so much!
