Join us as we journey to Monhegan Island - we explore the numerous trails and scenic spots. The island has a small village as well. In September we will avoid the crowds. We will be staying 2 nights.
You can enjoy Monhegan as a day trip experience if you'd like (wonderful boat ride but only 4 hrs on the island till the boat departures).
We are holding off on making lodging reservations until we get closer to the date and a better idea of weather, due to the merchants' cancellation policy. Lodging is mostly B&B and cottages. Closer to the date we will contact you regarding accommodations.
