Grab a picnic blanket or your lawn chair and cozy up on the back lawn for a casual movie night at The Tarbox. We offer weekly showings of our favorite classic movies, plus a small concession stand with local beer, soda, and freshly made popcorn. (Outside food and beverage are not allowed.)
Pizza Night at The Tarbox is a longstanding tradition, loved by locals as well as guests who are just passing through the area. Gather in our historic barn, on the deck, or out in the yard and enjoy a delicious personal pizza, freshly cooked and topped just the way you like it.
Kate & Nathan, local chefs, have dusted off their soup recipe books from their personal library to bring an intimate yet casual dinner experience to Westport Island this winter. Enjoy a homemade soup dinner in our cozy dining room.
The east side of the Damariscotta River once contained an enormous shell heap named Whaleback because of its shape. Much of this midden was removed in the late 1880s to supply a factory built here to process the oyster shells into chicken feed. As a result, only a small portion of Whaleback remains today. Managed in cooperation with the Coastal Rivers Conservation Trust, the area around the midden is now a State Historic Site that includes a small hiking trail and beautiful views of the river. A series of interpretive panels helps inform visitors about the history of the area.
