"Relax; Soak Up the Beautiful Nature & Art" Monhegan Island by fernijer

Monhegan Island Travel Guide: 7 reviews and 10 photos

Take the ferry from Boothbay Harbor and you'll have a lovely ride complete with sightings of whales (maybe), seals (probably), and fishing boats (definitely!)

This is a beautiful place for reflection. Bring a lunch, then hike around the island. If you're only there for the day (3 1/2 hours until the ferry leaves!), go to Lobster Cove and explore. Find a quiet spot to eat your lunch & write or draw.

If you're on Monhegan overnight, DEFINITELY hike through Cathedral Woods and look for the Fairy Houses.

Make sure to stop in to some artists' studios. Be prepared that many of them are actually in the artists' homes. Don't be surprised if you catch someone eating Cheerios in their bathrobe - it happened to me! It's a very unusual and lovely place with a deep history of art. Rockwell Kent and the Wyeths found inspiration here. Who knows? Maybe you will, too!
