Town of Harpswell: The town of Harpswell is made up of a series of long, skinny fingers of land reaching into the ocean, and dozens of islands in Casco Bay a total of 365 islands. This town has more than 200 miles of coast that you can explore, ranging from exposed ocean frontage to wide bays to calm, twisty inlets. When you drive around Harpswell, your breath will be taken away by the ocean views. Harpswell is one of the most beautiful parts of the Maine coast and because of its geography, it is not 'on the way' to anywhere, so it has remained unspoiled, despite being very close to Portland, Freeport, Brunswick, and Bath. If you want the real Maine, this is the place to come. There are great restaurants (especially seafood), swimming beaches, boat launches, walking trails through scenic woods with glacier-carved cliffs, world-class sea kayaking and boating, shopping, historical sightseeing, arts, music, and theater events, all in midcoast Maine

IT MAY BE MAINE’S MOST SCENIC and unspoiled peninsula (or rather, one proper peninsula and several peninsul-ish islands ), but Harpswell’s not just for tourists. With a property tax rate among the state’s lowest, an innovative charter school in Harpswell Coastal Academy, and unparalleled access to woods and waters, Harpswell makes a great hometown. The demographic profile matches much of the coast, affluent and aging, but for all the second homes that speckle the trident-shaped community, there are still plenty of working lobsterboats bobbing in spots like Cundy’s Harbor and Mackerel Cove. The grassy field in front of the latter is one of 14 scenic and semi-wild preserves protected by the Harpswell Heritage Land Trust, one of Maine’s older and more active land conservation organizations. The Trust is much admired by Harpswellians for privileging not just preservation but also recreation — volunteers have built an impressive trail system across the properties, and the Trust partners with the Harpswell Recreation Department to release a handy annual guide to trails and water access.

Locals (and generations of visitors) breathed a sigh of relief in 2015 when new ownership took over Cook’s Lobster & Ale House on Bailey Island. Overlooking the famed Cribstone Bridge (its cobwork construction lets the tide come through), Cook’s went on the market in 2015, on the cusp of its 60th anniversary, and there was some question whether it would remain a restaurant. These days, you can grab a bar stool and some fried clams year-round and catch live music four nights a week in the summer, and the the legacy lobster shack’s periodic community fundraisers (Cook’s raised $10,000 for home heating assistance this winter) are emblematic of how salty, tight-knit Harpswell rolls.
