A little but lovely spot at the north end of Westport Island, Clough Point short and easy .5 mile walk offers a short dog walk or picnicking spot. There are lots of artfully placed picnic tables perched over pretty ledges for some beautiful dinners at dusk. One of the trails is wheelchair accessible! The preserve also offers granite benches for taking in the views of Wiscasset. The trails closely hug the water. Pets allowed.
Sherman's Maine Coast Book Shop is one of the oldest book stores in the state. The Damariscotta store also features the "Barn Door Baking Company Café" a great place to meet up with friends and discuss your favorite book.
Our community's presence in the tavern feels like its seeping out of the walls. It has been what has made our little "off the water" neighborhood tavern so sublime. Do we have an amazing view? Yes, but it's not the ocean or a mountain skyline, it's your friends, family or co-workers playing bocce, cribbage, or throwing the "brass ring". Laughing and eating superb foods created alongside great local beer are as common as the salt and pepper shakers on our tables.
We stayed for a whole week and felt super comfortable throughout. The team are super hospitable - both great for chatting and also respecting our space when we needed it. Most importantly, this place isn't just dog-friendly, they're dog people.
