ISLANDS: GREAT ISLAND, ORR’S ISLAND & BAILEY ISLAND
Scroll down to see Harpswell Maine Real Estate listings for residential, land and commercial properties.
Cundy’s Harbor, found at the end of a winding road, is a charming working fishing village… one of the oldest working waterfronts in Maine.
You will find breath-taking scenic ocean views at the end of several winding roads off of Route 24- Gunpoint & Long Point are two fine examples.
One arrives at Bailey Island at the Cribstone Bridge (the only one of its kind in the world). As with the other islands and the neck of Harpswell the main road is intersected by smaller roads and driveways that lead to the water’s edge and resident homes. Just two miles long, Bailey Island is packed with references to life with the sea: Lobster boats, buoys, lobster traps, safe coves and docks.
Harpswell Neck is a peninsula that runs from the border of Brunswick, near Bowdoin College down to its tip at Potts Point out in Casco Bay. Near the top of the peninsula, you will find a number of small farms and conservation lands.
Summer time is a colorful season with a number of events throughout the community.
Mitchell Field is a popular venue with summer and early autumn outdoor concerts at the recently built gazebo.
Small beach areas can be found here and there that are open to the public. Favorites include Stover’s and Potts Point, Cedar Beach, & The Beach at Mitchell Field.
Trails, bike friendly roads, small art galleries, seafood at the dock, wonderful restaurants are just the thing for some.
Osprey soaring overhead, deer peering out among the trees, ducks and other water birds at shore’s edge, song birds darting here and there tending to their summer brood. Nature shares the space well with you when you sit and listen.
Oh, and then there is the sky! Sunrise, sunset, mid-day clouds moving through the sky. Rainbows after thunder showers.
No matter what brought you here or how long you plan to stay…there will be moments that take your breath away!
