Watch boats motor by, catch a glimpse of playful harbor seals, or see nearby nesting osprey take flight as you enjoy a picnic on the waterfront at Fort Edgecomb State Historic Site. Located on Davis Island in the Sheepscott River, Fort Edgecomb traces its origins to the early 19th century. Interpretive panels unfold the events surrounding the Fort's history when hostilities in Europe dictated construction of forts to protect local residents.
Midcoast Kayak rentals, tours and programs with Maine Guides leaving from Muscongus harbor. They carry a great selection of kayaks and paddleboards. Drive north to Damariscotta for a dreamy day paddling on the water.
The 500+ acre conservation area fronts over a mile of stunningly beautiful beach and dunes. Hike 2 miles each way through the salt marshes to enjoy a picnic and afternoon swimming and relaxing on the pristine, private beach. Parking is limited, so arrive early in the morning. No public restrooms.
What an amazing place with amazing service. The rooms are delightful, it’s really not that far from town, and the history is so rich. Had an incredible breakfast in the morning and got to say hi to the chubby little goats. I’ll be staying here again in the future. What a gem.
