Weekend Getaways

Summer Island Getaway on North Haven, ME

1 Waterman’s Community Center

This is the central gathering spot, where townspeople and vacationers alike meet over games of ping pong, blueberry muffins from the café, or just a cozy chat; summer nights are always filled with concerts, lectures, and plays.

2 North Island Museum

The museum, which opens for the season in July, recounts the island’s evolution from a Native American territory to the lobster-fishing town it is today.

3 Fox I Printworks

In the market for a souvenir? This new shop sells quirky hand-silk-screened T-shirts emblazoned with lighthouses, foxes, kale, tractors, and other fun designs.

4 Sail the Tammy Norie

Local captain Joel Rowland will take you on a half- or full-day sail aboard the Tammy Norie, a 42-foot wooden sloop that was originally built in 1964.
