Things To Do

Like Lighthouses?

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. . .

Got any time left?

Stroll through the beautiful displays at Coastal Maine Botanical
Garden, or visit Winters Gone Farm & Alpaca Store and say hello
to Snowball their spokespaca. Step back in time with a ride behind
a steam locomotive at the Wiscasset, Waterville & Farmington
Railway Museum. Or how about a kayak tour on the New
Meadows River? Seaspray Kayaking can make it happen.
A lovely piece of hand-thrown pottery might make the perfect
souvenir. Visit Saltbox Pottery or Georgetown Pottery for a
firsthand look, from creation to finished product. Or for a real
Maine shopping adventure of another sort, stop at the Montsweag
Flea Market.

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.

Like history?

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.
