Our community offers residents and visitors a spectacular coastline and encapsulates scenic views through parts of Acadia National Park.

Our quiet and peaceful community shines with several restaurants, bed and breakfasts, kayaking tours, monthly concerts, lobster dinners, antiques, a bell foundry and pottery, art, craft and woodworking shops.

There will be a shoreline cleanup on Sunday, July 17th. We encourage those with shoreline property to take advantage of this opportunity and bring what they have collected to the town office between 11:00 AM-2:00 PM on July 17th. If you cannot transport your trash, please place it road side and let the town office know, and we will be happy to come pick it up. We have heavy duty bags available at the town office for these clean-ups, thanks to an anonymous donor (thank you). If you could be part of a crew that cleans up hard to reach locations or the shores of preserved land, please meet at the town office at 9:30 AM.
