Earlier and later in the season the atmosphere of this seaside fishing village is peaceful and casual. Walk along the wharves and watch fishing and pleasure boats going about their business, as they have for generations. Stroll along the brick sidewalks and enjoy the interesting shops and lovely homes rise up the hills around the harbor.

You can dine in elegant surroundings with excellent services and beautiful views of the Harbor or eat your lobsters right on the dock and watch the boats load their catches. The famous catholic church, our Lady Queen of Peace, (probably the most photographed spot in the area) overlooks the Harbor form the hill. Across from the church is the fisherman's Memorial Park. Over the hill behind the church the land drops away to Lobster Cove on the west side of Linekin Bay.

Grimes Cove:
Is a favorite place of locals and visitors alike. This sheltered cove at the tip of Ocean Point has a coarse sand beach that is exposed at half tide. Here, people and their dogs swim and poke around the seaweed, catch some sun, or explore the ledges and tidal pools. It is common to see kayakers and divers setting out from Grimes Cove.

Ocean Point:
Is bounded by Linekin Bay, the Damariscotta River, and the Atlantic Ocean. From almost everywhere along the shore are sweeping views of islands and lighthouses.

Wiscasset, Maine

Earle Shettleworth, Director of the Maine Historic Preservation Commission, cites Wiscasset as one of three architecturally significant villages in the state in his book Towns of New England, chose Wiscasset to represent the State of Maine. He noted that millions were spent restoring Williamsburg, while Wiscasset remains essentially intact. Today, its abundance of classical architecture is evidenced by the inclusion of 10 structures in the Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS) of 1936 and the subsequent inclusion of five buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Buildings. In 1973, a large part of the Village/Historic District became a part of the National Register. In fact, much of the downtown area is a living field museum – and we hold the keys to its future.
