You provide a valuable resource to us all here in Washington County. -- Patricia C., Trescott, ME

Just dropping you a note to say I am most grateful for your Web site. I've been researching vacation destinations in the Quoddy Bay area for several days, and yours is the only Web site that provides complete factual information (e.g., average temperatures by month) and organizes information rationally. The town's tourist map is very well done. I learned more about the entire region from your Web site than I did from most other Web sites combined." -- Mark A., Danbury, CT

The site looks so good,...plenty there for the tourists and visitors and locals to explore and try. Marty S., Lubec ME
