Summary

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.
