Columbus weekend means peak fall foliage in Camden Maine

It happens every year just about the same time!  In our 16 years of innkeeping here at the Inns at Blackberry Common we always try to guess exactly when peak color will come to the midcoast of Maine.  And this year, like most others, peak is going to fall right around the Columbus holiday.
While we might not be too scientific about our forecast,  Mother Nature seems to follow the same pattern each year, painting those vibrant colors for the long Columbus  holiday weekend! And that is perfect for visitors looking for a fall getaway!  But don't take my word for it, take a look at the official Maine foliage report and see that the coast is just about peak right now!  Every year the state of Maine posts the report as the trees begin to turn up north and then follows the colorful display as fall moves down toward the coast. While the north country is now past peak, here on the coast we are ready for the show.
It is a great time for a 3 day getaway... one of the last before the holidays and the arrival of winter.  For now, autumn is the show!  Apple orchards are open for picking, pumpkin patches and farm markets are bursting with the harvest and the wineries are all open for tastings.  This weekend is yet one more chance to ride to the top and see the view out over the ocean at the Camden Snow Bowl.  There is so much to do, it is a good thing that Monday is a holiday!  So give us a call, reserve a room and head up the coast!  It is going to be quite a show.
