Accommodations for Fiber College 2019
Searsport and Belfast Maine are two towns right at the center of Maine’s seemingly endless coastline. Searsport is a village that offers the kind of downtown experience that begs you to wander for a few hours, eat a nibble and maybe finish the day sitting on the fishing pier watching the lobster and sail boats bobbing on the waves. It’s home to the Penobscot Marine Museum a destination in and of itself.
Belfast is our town…it’s hip, it’s chic and it’s fun…just 5 miles South of Searsport, the campus of Fiber College. You’ll find plenty of reasons to wander the shops, eat the great food and just soak up the atmosphere…the galleries alone with fire your inspiration and satiate any space left in your soul for more color and texture.
As you know, Fiber College is hosted at Searsport Shores Ocean Camping…and there’s plenty of room for the smallest tents, the largest RVs and every camping set-up under the sun (or shade). Rental cabins and trailers are also available. So, if this is how you like to vacation, we hope that you’ll contact them and make a reservation soon. Rates range from $12-$165.00 depending on how you’d like to camp.
Not everybody likes to sit by a campfire and drink their coffee at a picnic table. Lucky for us there are plenty of lodging options within a 10-15 minute radius of Fiber College to meet every need. Contact them directly and if you have any problems don’t hesitate to contact us and we’ll try to help with your arrangements. Consider spending the week~ why rush when there’s so much to see and do within the area?
