Things to do

Island outings near Tenants Harbor

Just 10 miles off the mainland, Monhegan Island is home to an incredible seasonal artists' colony and stunning natural attractions worth a day trip from Tenants Harbor. You can catch a boat from nearby Port Clyde to the little village here to check out the art museum, housed in an old lighthouse keeper's cottage that is on the National Register of Historic Places, and pop into studios and galleries where local artists create and display their works each summer. Elsewhere around the island, you'll discover the beauty that inspires these creators, from flower-filled meadows and balsam fir woods, to soaring, rocky sea cliffs.

Activities

Looking for lighthouses in Tenants Harbor

The Mid Coast of Maine is known for its picture-perfect lighthouses and Tenants Harbor is the perfect place to see the sights. Head to the Maine Lighthouse Museum, a few miles up the coast in Rockland, to map out your excursion and learn more about the maritime heritage here. Then it's off to snap photos at spots like Owls Head Light, build in 1852, and Marshall Point Lighthouse, which has been featured on the big screen. Though you can reach many of these scenic beacons by car, boat tours in the bay also offer an incredible way to see the lights.

Weather

Summer dreams in Tenants Harbor

There's nothing like spending a warm summer day in Maine on the deck of a boat, looking out to watch the sunbeams dancing on the waves and spotting picturesque lighthouses and cute puffins along the shore in the distance. If you've snagged a Tenants Harbor vacation rental near the water, you'll be able to spend cool mornings outside, wrapped up in a blanket with a warm cup of coffee, watching the boats bobbing in the distance. The hottest parts of summer average temperatures in the low 70s, so keeping a rain jacket and sweater handy when taking off on outdoor expeditions is always a good idea.
