This area of Maine coast is especially rich in early history.Pemaquid settlement predates Plymouth,with Chief Samoset and the Abenaki Indians welcoming new settlers.Colonial Pemaquid,Ft.William Henry and the surrounding excavations verify this early settlement.History buffs will be enchanted with all these new discoveries!
Pemaquid Lighthouse is a MUST.Located on a dramatic outcropping of granite,showing the tremendous geological activity over the decades.Located there also is the Fishermen's museum and art gallery- both exceptionally well done.
Pemaquid Beach is a beautiful white sandy horseshoe shaped beach surrounded with dunes and sea oats.There are now gardens featuring native plants,a well stocked concession stand,showers,rental equipment-everything needed to complete a great day of sun and fun.
Nature trails are constantly being cleared and developed.Bring the binoculars(furnished with the house) and watch for blue herons,egrets,eagles,woodpeckers,rabbits and if lucky,the occasional new born deer.
Trips to watch the puffins,get up close and personal with the seals as they slide off their resting spots and even a day trip to Monhegan Island are just a few of the special things to do.
It has been said that one can visit this area and do nothing but sit and 'take it all in' and leave completely refreshed and renewed.'Life the way it should be'.
