This 159-acre wetland preserve was one of the first areas settled on Westport Island. Hike along the 1.8 mile Jeremy’s Ramble Trail, exploring several short side trails. These blazed trails begin at the parking area off West Shore Road and proceed through hardwood forest, along a picturesque stone wall and by the lush green marsh grass of the wetland along the creek.

It all started in 2015 when Brendan Parsons successfully retrofitted an Oscar Meyer’s hotdog cart and introduced the first oyster food cart to the State of Maine. Since the shucking began on the corner of Commercial and Pearl Street in Portland, BP’s Oysters has expanded to include two Portland-based food carts, a Newcastle restaurant, a Damariscotta farm, and an oyster distribution company.
Absolutely wonderful, though too brief, stay. Room was historic with modern fixtures and a comfortable bed, the commons rooms were beautifully, tastefully decorated, and the grounds provided for lovely walks, and visits with the resident goats and chickens. Tasty breakfast box and excellent coffee completed the stay. Only some rooms are dog-friendly, but they love the dogs that stay. Already planning a return for a longer visit.
