Pemaquid Light is just a short drive north–spectacular views! Owl's Head Light is a bit further–another beautiful spot. Others that are accessible on foot include Portland Head Light and the Kennebec River Light Station. Tours by boat are available too for lighthouses off shore.
Like Great Maine Food?
Who doesn't? World famous Red's Eats is just two miles from us in the village. Red's reputedly has the best lobster roll in the world –a modest Maine claim. Le Garage and Sarah's are also restaurants we recommend in Wiscasset village. After walking the beach and rocky shores of beautiful Reid State Park, stop at the Five Islands Lobster Company where your seafood is served right on a working waterfront. Steak more to your liking? Try Admiral Steakhouse or J. R. Maxwell & Co. in Bath. We could go on. . .

Like the Water?
Whale and puffin watching cruises sail out of nearby New Harbor and Boothbay Harbor. Or take the mailboat for a day trip to Monhegan Island. Take a party boat to fish for cod, striper, bluefish and flounder. Rather have a half or full day with a registered Maine guide fishing on the Kennebec or Sheepscot Rivers for striper? We know a number of guides and can put you in touch.

Visit Revolutionary War era Fort Edgecomb or the Old Lincoln County Jail (circa. 1811), the Musical Wonder House, or one of the preserved sailing-era homes open for tours (Castle Tucker, Nichols-Sortwell House). Also, you shouldn't miss the nearby Maine Maritime Museum.
