Cushing's Island is a small privately-owned island in Casco Bay with extensive carriage roads and walking paths through the picturesque landscape. Islanders enjoy walking, birding, swimming, sunbathing, tennis, fishing, kayaking, sailing, and or you can just relax on the porch and watch the ever-changing parade of water craft, clouds, and sunsets. There are no cars, stores, or restaurants on the island. The caretaker drives the only vehicle. While water taxis are available, regular (private) ferry service leaves from the Portland waterfront from Memorial Day to Labor Day, so if desired, you can go off-island for a day of shopping and sight-seeing. Cushing's Island is a great setting for quiet family vacation - removed from the hustle and bustle and yet just minutes from Portland.
