On the way, plan to stop at the Penobscot Narrows Bridge & Observatory, which offers spectacular 360-degree views of the Penobscot River and Bay, the Maine countryside and the distant western mountains. It is the tallest public bridge observatory in the world and is taller than the Statue of Liberty!
From there, Acadia National Park is less than an hour away. If you are not familiar with the park, stop at the ranger station. The rangers are very knowledgeable and will suggest the best trails for your skill level. The most efficient way to see the Park in a day is to drive the Park Loop Road. This 27-mile road begins at the Hulls Cove Visitor Center and connects the Park's lakes, mountains, forests, and rocky coast. Much of the Park Loop Road is one way. You’ll pass the entrance to Cadillac Mountain and Sand Beach and there will be pull-offs for Thunder Hole, Otter Cliff, and Ocean Path. And be sure to check out The Jordan Pond House, the only restaurant in the park, accessible from Park Loop Road, serving assorted beverages and their famous popovers, along with other fares.
Along Park Loop Road there are several parking areas and pullover points so be sure to take your time and enjoy the sights, stopping often.
As you make your way back to the Inn, use the gift card towards dinner, and return to your guest room and relax with a bottle of Cellardoor wine and a petite chocolate decadent cake with chocolate-dipped strawberries for dessert!
*can be substituted with a chicken or veggie wrap.
Get ready for a full day of great sights and local fare as you begin your Lighthouse & Lobster driving tour.
This full-day excursion will give you lots of opportunities to stop and explore rocky beaches and antique and artisan pottery shops along the way! If you plan to spend some time relaxing at a beach during your lighthouse tour, don’t forget to bring along the Inn’s beach towels, tote, sunscreen, chairs, and sand umbrella! As well as the keepsake Inn’s branded insulated stainless water bottles, Captain Swift Inn caps, and lighthouse map! Do as much of the tour as time or interest permits. If you have limited time – we suggest you begin with The Marshall Point Light House – otherwise, continue with all four as outlined below!
The first stop along the way is Pemaquid Point Light House. There you can tour the lighthouse; check out the museum and gallery. Pemaquid State Park is a lovely place to visit and relax by the sea! Next up is Red’s Eats, in Wiscassett, which has been voted the #1 lobster shack by Down East Magazine for years! A word of caution to those faint of heart – you will wait in line, sometimes a long line, to say you’ve had a lobster roll at the infamous Red’s Eats! But don’t despair, they typically provide an umbrella for the sun and also cups of water while you wait. Wiscassett is a lovely little town with shops to explore. And if you are on a hunt for antiques, there are a few rights in the village but our favorite is about a 10-minute drive south on Route 1, Wiscasset Antique Village. Let us know if you are interested in pottery shops – as you pass two of our favorites!
Next is Marshall Point Light House located in Port Clyde, a lovely seacoast artist, and fishing community. Marshall Point Lighthouse is situated on a rocky ledge at the tip of the St. George Peninsula, where it overlooks both Muscongus and Penobscot Bays. The grounds also include the keeper’s house, which is the current Marshall Point Lighthouse Museum, and visitors are also allowed to cross the walkway to the lighthouse. Most notable is that scenes from the famous movie, Forrest Gump, starring Tom Hanks, was filmed there.
A relaxing break at McLoons Lobster Shack is next. This family-owned Maine lobster shack is located on Spruce Head Island, across from the area's oldest working lobster wharf. Enjoy picturesque views of the harbor and surrounding islands and watch local lobstermen unload their day's catch while enjoying some local fresh fare.
Then off to your third lighthouse - The Owls Head Light Station, located in Owls Head, who’s history has been marked with interesting and even mysterious events ever since it was built in 1824. Specifically, it’s been said that a couple was brought back to life after being found frozen in the icy waters.
Owls Head Light Station is also listed as number one on Coastal Living magazine’s most haunted lighthouse list, and there are said to be at least two ghosts at the lighthouse. One is known as the “Little Lady” and is most frequently found in the kitchen or looking out a window.
Ready for a little more adventure? Your fourth and final lighthouse is the Breakwater in Rockland, where you’ll walk .8 of a mile on a jetty to the lighthouse. The views are lovely from this vantage point. And don’t forget the Light House Museum is also located in downtown Rockland if you are interested in artifacts and maritime history. Take some time and explore the shops on Main Street in Rockland - Fiore Artisan Oil is a fun stop! There are also two antique shops that often have lots of interesting treasures!
And if you are still a bit hungry and not tempted by any of the tasty restaurants along Main Street, you can stop at Claws on the way back to the Inn and sample some more lobster and Maine seafood at a picnic bench with views of the bay.
Included in your package is a Lighthouse Guidebook, a lobster and lighthouse themed gift basket; a $50 gift card to McLoons Lobster Shack; two stainless steel branded Inn water bottles, and two Captain Swift Inn caps.
And if you are staying a second day, and want to experience the art of lobstering - consider adding a 60 minute Morning Haul aboard the Lively Lady, where you’ll experience a hands-on fishing demonstration, helping to haul, bait, and reset lobster pots. Departs Camden at 9:30 am. Add: $25 per person
