The East Wind Inn is located in the heart of Midcoast Maine at the gateway to Penobscot Bay—one of the most beautiful stretches of the Maine coast. Here you'll find dozens of islands, historic lighthouses, and quiet little protected harbors filled with working lobster boats. We're also just a short drive to Rockland, home of The Farnsworth Art Museum, Strand Theatre and the new Maine Lighthouse Museum, among many other cultural, recreational, and tourist attractions. Nearby is the well known Owl's Head transportation museum. Major events in the area include North Atlantic Blues Festival, Maine Lobster Festival, Maine Antique Show, Maine boats and harbor show and the Union Fair.
The East Wind Inn is located on the St. George Peninsula, with breathtaking coastal views. This is the heart of Wyeth country, summer home of America’s most famous family of artists. You can experience the back drop for the many Wyeth paintings on a Wyeth by Water Tour. (LindaBeansPerfectMaine.com/Wyeth).
The area allows the visitor to experience the traditional fishing life of Maine. Located next door to the inn is the authentic and popular Luke’s Lobsters, serving fresh Maine Lobster dinners (https://www.lukeslobster.com/location/lukes-lobster-tenants-harbor/). Port Clyde is a few minutes away where you can visit the Marshall Point Light House, hop a ferry to Monhegan Island (www.monheganboat.com) or take a kayak tour (portclydekayaks.com).
