Additional Location Information

Southward from The Boathouse one sees the exciting whilte-water sprays on ledges/reef of Long Cove Point. Beyond the ledges is the blue Muscongus Bay, and the Atlantic Ocean. Ten miles away to sea is the thriving year-round community of Monhegan Island - walking trails, hills, bluffs, art mecca, lodging, and a terminus for two mainland ferries. New Harbor and Chamberlain are active residential, tourist hotels, and haven of summer cottage owners. Required traveling is by private car or rented bycycles. Most folks are present in the summer period to relax and enjoy nature's Pemaquid peninsula. On the shore at the Rachel Carson Pond Preserve (1/2 mile distance) there is an enjoyable inland hiking trail. New Harbor marina (1 1/2 miles) bustles with local fisherman and their lobster and dragger boats tending their traps and unloading as much as a thousand lobsters a day at Shaw's Restaurant and Wharf or other fisherman coops. There are rental shops 2 miles away for kayaks, and canoes, and the Pemaquid Beach (public, slight charge) with food stand and rental chairs, umbrellas, and floatation gear The Cottage Cupboard restaurant is another colonial fine dining with homemade pastries, muffins, and pies. Ten miles distance is the famed Pemaquid Point with it's old lighthouse and ocean swells, huge breakers, and immense ledges for climbing and unmatched photo shots. The Sea Gull Shop and Restaurant at the Point has fine foods, ocean views, souvenirs, and curios. The Pemaquid Art Gallery is a treat on the premises to view many varied works of very talented local artists. There are walking trails also from the Point area. Not to be overlooked is the colonial fort, William Henry and the excavations of a colonial settlement (early 1600s) at Pemaquid.
