Sean Lebida loves Maine. He was born in Bar Harbor and raised in the stunning Mid-Coast area, and there is nowhere he would rather live. Five years ago, Sean and his wife had an idea: start a website showcasing our beautiful State and the wide variety of things to do here.
Best Maine Vacation started as a blog, and grew from there into a geographically-based insider’s guide to Maine. Sean’s mission is to find and bring to light the unique places off the beaten trail, the spots that reveal what authentic Maine is really about.
One of his proudest moments was working with Gren Blackall to help found Maine Day, a holiday to celebrate everything about Maine. Through their efforts, and with the help of many others, they were able to get Governor LePage to proclaim the holiday, and we celebrated the first official Maine Day on August 16, 2014.
Sean currently resides in the town of Bowdoin with his wonderful wife and three energetic children. Their children and businesses keep them busy but they always find time to get out and experience the awesome State of Maine!
Sean is also an avid photographer and his passion is landscape photography. Best Maine Vacation has provided the opportunity to share some of his photos and encourage others to come and visit Maine.

House in the Woods
217 Skunk Hill Rd, Lee, ME 04455

House in the Woods is a nonprofit organization offering outdoor programs to bring together small groups of active military, veterans, and their family members to relax, share, bond, and deal with the stress, loss, grief, and other emotions which can haunt the grieving soul.
We offer canoeing, kayaking, hiking, hunting, fishing, nature tours, campfires, swimming, wildlife identification and spotting, and other natural Eastern Maine resource “treasures” God has given our beautiful state to enjoy. As participants face the outdoor challenges presented by Mother Nature herself, they will have the opportunity to share laughter, memories, sorrow, service, and pride, among many other common bonds.
Paul and Dee House founded House in the Woods after their son, Sgt. Joel A. House, was killed by a roadside bomb while serving in the Army in Iraq. Their vision for House in the Woods began shortly after attending the military memorial service at Fort Hood, TX for Joel and 19 other soldiers from his army base who died the same month as their son. It was both emotionally overwhelming and comforting to be around so many families who were experiencing the same grief and loss. They dreamed of creating a program using Maine’s outdoor resources that would help military families support one another.
Paul is a life-long Maine woodsman and Maine Master Guide. Dee is a former Navy “brat” who grew up in military housing and schools during the Vietnam War era.
