Succulent Seafood and Spectacular Views in Port Clyde, Maine

Posted March 19, 2010 by Amy Westervelt

Port Clyde Surround yourself with natural beauty in the picturesque fishing village of Port Clyde, Maine. Artists such as N.C. Wyeth have long been inspired by the charming downtown, busy harbor, and gorgeous views. Find out why at a cozy bed and breakfast, an idyllic island cafe, or at the most photographed lighthouse in Maine.

Stay
Seaside Inn
: Snuggle up at the Seaside Inn, an 1850s sea captain's home converted into a welcoming bed and breakfast. Help yourself to complimentary coffee, tea, and cocoa before turning in for the night in one of the nine cozy guestrooms.

Drink
The Barnacle:
An easy day trip from Port Clyde is a visit to Monhegan Island and the popular local cafe The Barnacle. The cafe is in a building dating back to the early 1900s when local fishermen and tourists enjoyed tea and goodies there. Not much has changed, and visitors and locals alike pop in for award-winning locally-roasted coffee, tea, and homemade goodies. You can also take your java to go along with a picnic lunch to munch while you explore Monhegan Island's local art galleries and 17 miles of hiking trails.

Play
Marshall Point Lighthouse:
Marshall Point Lighthouse has two claims to fame: It was featured in the movie Forrest Gump and in the popular children's story Nellie the Lighthouse Dog. A short, scenic walk from Port Clyde, the lighthouse has been warning boats of the rocky point since 1857. Walk the long ramp connecting the lighthouse to the mainland for a picture-perfect moment, then wander the beautiful grounds. The lighthouse keeper's cottage, built in 1895, houses a seasonal museum highlighting Port Clyde's history and the lives of the lighthouse keepers.
