Tenants-Harbor creates a tranquil scene on a rural peninsula along the midcoast region of Maine, the gateway to beautiful Penobscot Bay. This tiny fishing village is located along Route 131 midway down the St. George Peninsula, twenty minutes south of Rockland and 45 minutes north of Boothbay. The town has a well-protected harbor that is usually filled with fishing boats and pleasure craft, and is a favorite anchorage for yachts sailing down the Maine coast. In fact, boats outnumber cars in this small New England town. This region of Maine abounds with things to see and do. You can cruise to one of the many offshore islands for the day, explore historic lighthouses and watch lobstermen hauling in their traps as they have for generations. Everything is close at hand to Tenants Harbor, from hiking, biking, sea kayaking and windjammer cruises to golf, shopping and sightseeing. Visitors to Tenants Harbor will find shops, art galleries and good eateries in town, with many more options available in the nearby towns of Rockland, Thomaston or any of the other picturesque little villages in the area. The neighboring community of Rockland is also home to the annual Maine Lobster Festival in August, as well as the Wyeth Center and Farnsworth Art Museum. For a taste of the real Maine, or as locals like to say, "Maine the way it was meant to be," plan a visit to Tenants Harbor, the entry point to Penobscot Bay.

Tenants Harbor Weather & Climate

The southern coast of Maine near the Penobscot Bay has very comfortable summers and falls, cold winters with frequent thaws and late, changeable springs. Summers are mild to cool by most people's standards, with very few summer nights too warm and humid for sleeping. Autumn has the greatest number of sunny days along the coast and is perfect for fall sightseeing. Winters are cold, but not as severe as the northeastern part of the state along the Canadian border. The White Mountains, to the northwest, keep considerable snow from reaching the Portland area and also help moderate the temperature. Normal precipitation is remarkably uniform throughout the year. Winds are generally light with the strongest being in the months of March and November. Temperatures well below freezing are reported each year, and cold waves sometimes come along with strong winds. Blizzards are possible but infrequent in Maine.
