Most People Don’t Know Maine Has A Fairy Island… And It’s Positively Magical

Fairies. They’re so lovely and mystical and strange and…unproven. But, for a moment let’s pretend that they are as prevalent as deer. And, let’s appreciate the idea of fairies like they deserve to be appreciated. If you love the idea of fairies as much as we do, you’ll want to head to Mackworth Island. The home of the most wonderful fairies in Maine, Mackworth Island will entertain for as long as you can find building materials to help build their tiny, natural homes.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

There are so many wonderful things about Mackworth Island. The views and the Fairy Village are just two of them. The real beauty is in allowing both children and adults the experience the world around them from a truly tactile perspective. Watching people of all ages hunt for the perfect materials reminds us that we are all creative and curious – it just takes a little but of opportunity to bring it out.
