Harpswell is a fishing village along Maine's Casco Bay, approximately 40 minutes from Portland. It is a unique town made up of a ten-mile peninsula that reaches into the Bay of Brunswick, three islands, Sebascodegan (or the Great Island,) Orr's and Bailey, all of which are connected by bridges, and also 47 other smaller islands. Some of the islands are known simply for their solitary beauty, while others feature historic sites and lovely protected beaches and seabird colonies. With over 200 miles of breathtaking shoreline, Harpswell attracts visitors who love fishing, boating, sailing, sea kayaking, swimming and hiking and biking. There are lots of fine restaurants in the Harpswell area, some featuring fresh lobster and clams straight from the waters of the Bay. Visitors will find bed and breakfasts and inns; some in beautifully restored historic homes. Summer is, of course, a popular time to visit Harpswell, but also consider a fall vacation when the changing colors of the trees and foliage create a special treat. Harpswell has all that you'll need for a wonderful vacation, and is also just a short drive to the shopping, museums, and historic sites of the nearby towns of Bath, Brunswick, Freeport and Portland.
