WESTPORT ISLAND, MAINE
Westport Island is 14.2 square miles and has a population of just under 750 people and nestles in the Sheepscott, a tidal salt-water river. Accessible via bridge from Bath, or via boat from just about anywhere, it is just off Route One which affords easy access to mid-coast Maine while still giving a sense of remote, peaceful tranquility. Still referred to by the locals as Jeremysquam, the island has a rich nautical history and a deep love of the sea’s bounty. The island has a couple distinguished eateries including the famed Jeremy Squam Restaurant. Also close by is the MacNamara Foundation where you can watch, or join, artists at work using various mediums. Within an easy drive, or scenic boat ride, are Wiscasset, Damariscotta, Boothbay and more! You can also make easy trips to the Maine Maritime Museum in Bath, Popham Beach and Reid State Park.
