Most People Don’t Know About The History Of This Beautiful Maine Island

Maine has over 3,000 island dotting it’s beautiful coastline. From the big ones to the ones that barely have room for someone to stand, each one has its own history. We love taking the ferry to Peaks Island, Vinalhaven and Monhegan but there are some much smaller island that offer a lot in the way of beauty and calm. House Island in Maine, located just off of Portland, is a great example of Vacationland’s island-life. It’s small, with just a few places for visitors to stay. But, it comes with history that most people are not aware of.

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:

Monhegan Island is also a beautiful place to spend the day and this day-long boat trip is the best way to get there.
